I love driving my car, it’s small, powerful performance cuts around small corners with no sweat. But I have never tried my hands on an automatic transmission car ever, not until now. I had an opportunity to attend NEXA IGNIS test drive event where you get to drive their automatic variant. IGNIS organized the event in The Great India Mall in Noida where you go and have a test drive of the car in a very innovative way.
They were running a game where there are two people playing against each other. All you have to do is you have to drive your IGNIS front and back. Simple right? But it was not that simple! Through a virtual screen, which was installed in front, you have to play a game of ping pong ball where you have to hit the ball with the car by going front and back competing with your rival. This was an amazing new way of test driving where you can test the car’s pickup, gear shifting, and performance. I also enrolled myself for this game and decided to play it with my husband.
I always want to try ‘automatic transmission car ( ATC )’ and this was the right opportunity but the problem was I don’t know how to drive one, then again I thought how hard can that be. So I got through with all the formalities like you do before taking a test drive. Finally! I walk towards the car in the game alley which looked spectacular in electric red colour and Jet Black alloy wheels, did I tell you that I have a “thing” for small cars. Yeah!, Same “thing” happened looking at this one. So I took the test drive on the diesel variant, took it for a spin around quick short and long corners also checked on the pickup speed of the car too.
So how was the experience? Was it hard to drive an ATC car? Well if you think drinking a glass of water is hard, then yeah it was hard. Are you kidding me? It was super easy and I had no idea why I kept myself from not driving an ATC. Maybe because of the old school kid in me but it’s the best solution for Delhi’s traffic. You choose either this or enroll for a knee cap replacement due to the constant clutch pedal shift during bumper to bumper traffic. In IGNIS if you release the brakes, the car automatically pick up the speed gently from 5 kph to 10 kph. You don’t have to even lift your right leg to push the accelerator. IGNIS also has a fantastic auto gear shift which gives you seamless shifting and smoother driving experience.
WOW, I want one ATC IGNIS now! It looks small on the outside and spacious on the inside, standard dual airbag, steering mounted controls, 100% touch panel control of the car stereo system with live sat-navigation. To sum it all up it’s a cool car to own, I loved the experience and I think you’ll love it too. If you’re a little skeptical then I would suggest going take a test drive and you will be sorted.
