All the materials in the cabin, from plastic and fabric look a bit cheap.
Compared with the two-door version of the e2o for Plus 300 mm longer wheelbase. Due to this, in the rear seat appeared to some degree. Also States that the car has become longer than 310 mm wider and 61 mm above to 25 mm. boot space is 135 litres, which is enough for a couple bags from the store. As stated by the Indian edition autocarindia.com another problem e2o is its insulation. Motor noise was reduced, but the cacophony of other noises remained.
