“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

This time it's a biggie.....

It has an engine of 1200cc producing 80ps @ 5200 rpm using it's all Aluminium head 16 valve 4 cylinder DOHC KAPPA engine. Yes, it's the new Hyundai i10 Kappa Magna. I got my first car yesterday.



Before anything else I would like to thank Kiran who accompanied me to the pick the car along with Meenakshi and helped in bringing the babe home.

Had a mixed feeling when I first drove the car (apart from a couple of goof ups...... well that's expected when I'm around!!). First, I like riding monster machines and not being dragged by one. But then again, a car has it's own benefits. My decision to go for a car was completely driven by family requirements, but still I wanted go some substance for my first car.

The Hyundai i10 has already proven that today it's one of the best choice in small Hatchback segment, and with the introduction of the KAPPA engine, it got all the more better. Truely speaking, if Hyundai would not have introduced the KAPPA engine in the i10 I would not have gone for the car. The KAPPA engine has done loads of good to the already good car specially the revs in the mid-section where we are pulling from 3rd gear to the 4th. For example, yesterday when I was driving the car, though I was a bit nervous for obvious reason, the car was easily touching 50 kmph and going past it at 2nd gear without any drag of any sort. This again might be due to the reason that the car is brand new, but still the pickup and pull of the car is an absolute bliss.

Till date the car has received good feedback from different forums and owners, but more needs to be seen as it gains it's position between the masses. But what ever, the little car did make it's first impression big to me!!
