Hey Guys this video is unscripted & uncensored with showroom & drive experience if you want to watch the first look & every detail of the car visit. –> Here
We visited the BYD showroom today and checked out the Grey color Atto 3 they had on display. I must say the car is quite a stunner from the outside, as expected. And to my surprise, I did not find the (quirky) interior too bad either, as I had anticipated. It’s just… you know… ‘different’.
- Good aerodynamic design.
- Good sound system.
- Great screen (cannot be tilted towards the driver though).
- Comfy Seats.
- The rear legroom is good (+flat floor as it is an EV-first design).
- The panoramic sunroof is expansive and great.
- The four color choices are fantastic.
- Loaded with Safety Tech (with 5* NCAP test rating).
- Loaded with Comfort Features.
- The suggested WLTP Range of 420 km is great and going by the rave reviews for the BYD E6 real-world range, I’m sure the Atto 3 will perform well too.
- Quirky interiors (most of which are unnecessary and could have been avoided) and hefty center console area (gear shift, buttons, etc).
- Access to the rear seat is a bit narrow so ingress/egress for elders could be a slight issue
- The Center screen cannot be tilted towards the driver, hampering readability.
- Under-thigh support could be a bit better, but I assume all EVs will have this issue due to battery placement in the floor (which results in less seat-to-floor height).
- Messy bonnet compartment (just like MG ZS EV, with lots of wires, parts, and wasted space) – they could have easily made a small frunk (which would have also kept it tidy).
- The showroom was buzzing with customers – surely looks like a winner!
So if they price this is sold under (30 lakhs), it could be a segment best car within no time – owing to a combination of great looks, great performance(0-100 in 7.3 secs), great real-range(WLTP 420 ), great safety (NCAP 5*) and great warranty package …hard to top these many!
