Then, he opened the doors and let me in. He started with the bucket seats ?! Ehh..... As an Aquarius myself I noticed that these buckets can't bear water. Quite flat although there was a curvature only it was more towards the cushy rather then the cozy. Well, some English terms have a different lives in other countries.
Next came the tilt-back / sliding front seats. I was not aware but I believe these are not yet a standard feature on Indian cars.
But the serious surprise was hovering above. A built-in drop-down flat screen with ceiling mounted stereo speakers. By this time I was smiling. This could only rhyme with chitichiti bangbang or my Israeli 1970's English learning TV series 'Scootermen' (where the special task duo was riding a Vespa scooter with a video conference monitor installed where the glove compartment used to be).
The windshield, apparently, is a sort of UV filtering, mirror-like as Pappou described, or another glass treatment I am not yet aware of, but the bottom line is that in winter time there's no condensation on the inner side and visibility is maintained.
Despite the spotless paintjob on the outside, the doorsteps had corrosive 'viefinders' to look through onto the road beneath. “The salty rain in Chennai, the ocean...” Pappou said digging into the car's early days. “Inside it is very quiet” he added.
