Will Magic Iris give mileage as much as my current Auto?
X

Magic Iris has a technically advanced Engine which consumes less fuel despite being more powerful. At the same time the bigger radial tyres of Magic Iris helps in lowering the fuel consumption as bigger tyres cover more distance per revolution. Under standard conditions, Magic Iris's approved mileage by ARAI is 33.1 kmpl which is at par with any other 3 wheeler. The mileage of an auto drops significantly on overload conditions which will not be true for Magic Iris as it has much powerful Engine supported with strong gear box and axle.

Will I be able to carry as many passengers in Magic Iris as I do in my current 3 wheeler?

Magic Iris has 28% more interior space than a shared 3 wheeler, hence has enough space to seat as many or even more passengers as compared to any shared 3 wheeler. There is also a separate luggage space at the back and provision for roof carrier to accommodate the extra luggage requirements, thus ensuring comfortable passenger seating.

Will I be able to drive and turn Magic Iris in narrow city lanes?

Magic Iris has a small turning circle radius of 3.5 meters, hence it can be easily turned in any type of narrow lanes. In addition the Steering Wheel makes it far more convenient to maneuver and give direction to the vehicle. In all, Magic Iris can be driven with comfort in narrow and congested lanes.

How will be the maintenance expense in Magic Iris?

Tata Magic Iris has stronger and technically advanced aggregates (Engine, Gear Box, Clutch, Axles, Brakes etc) which are long lasting thus needs less maintenance. Also Magic Iris has a service interval of 10,000 kms which results in fewer visits to workshop and hence more savings. Lesser visits to workshop also means more time for business.

Isn't the tyre of Magic Iris smaller as compared to its body? Won't my vehicle get damaged from below when it is driven on uneven road with potholes and high bumps?

Magic Iris has 12" radial tyres as big as that of any other 4 wheelers like Tata Magic or ACE and which is also bigger than any other vehicle in its segment. This allows Magic Iris to ply on any type of road conditions. Good ground clearance of Iris prevents its underbody from any damage. This helps Magic Iris to be driven on all kinds of uneven roads with potholes and bumps.

Will I be able to overtake other vehicles like 3 wheelers? Will I be able to ply the vehicle for longer distances?

Magic Iris is technically an advanced and powerful vehicle in its category.

Magic Iris has an engine at the rear while its bigger sibling Magic has engine at its front. Will there be any drawback of this?

Every vehicle has its own Engine design depending on the desired vehicle performance and space considerations. While in Tata Magic, the front placed engine gives excellent reliable performance, Magic Iris' engine has also been designed to give high performance keeping in mind the vehicle performance requirements and passenger comfort. While keeping the engine at the rear, all concerns regarding noise, vibration and engine cooling have been considered & addressed comprehensively. ARAI tests also show that, the NVH (Noise Vibration and Harshness) levels for Magic Iris are much less than that of a 3 wheeler. As far as the Engine cooling requirements are concerned, Magic Iris has a water cooled engine which has been tested thoroughly for satisfactory performance. Hence though the engine is bigger and more powerful than other 3 wheeler engines, the cooling requirements are easily met by the use of a radiator. This allows you to drive Magic Iris for more hours and over longer distances without the need of stopping in between to cool the engine. Also this keeps the overall temperature of the engine aggregate parts low thereby enhancing their performance and life.
