    chevrolet's interior is a little better than Exec's. It is much more spacial than Santro. More comfortable seats. Has got nearly every accessory present in Exec. Look wise is better as well. The only thing i dont know about its Run on CNG. Company doesnt provide factory fitted CNG. And also how efficient will it be to fit EFI CNG on Chevi Joy.
    I found it better than Santro in nearly every aspect. I have never got a ride on Chevy so a little fixed on these things. I am preferring Chevy. It seems far better and in much lower price.

    I am a Santro owner myself. I got it in 2004 Feb. it has done 35000 Kms but there hasnt been the slightest of problem. the car is good. but there are certain things that it lacks.. rear leg room is minimal. the seats arent comfortable at all. but i think that JOY is better than santro. because it has got all the gadgets which the santro exec has and it is bigger than santro from inside, the seats are comfortable, the looks are cool, it is cheaper than santro and has the badge of Chevrolet. so go for JOY..

    well friend go for the car which is experienced by many people, dont try experiments with your money.
    we had a Chevrolet cavalier 1997 2.2L M/T in dubai, 3 months back we sold it for 4300 dhs (Rs.69,875) and we bought it 2 years back for 9500 dhs(Rs.154,375), that car was a trouble for my brother, it wasnt reliable at all, even though it was 97 model 6 years old when we bought, so dont go for Chevrolet go for santro or any other car
    its my opinion i hope it ll help
    no offence
    Thanks to ALLAH for everything | Love what you have!

    i agree with 'nightsurfer'
    chevy is biger from inside. Santro is good - very good rather. but i think with the current specs Chevy joy will easily replace santro to become the curent small benchmark car.

    Chevy is a better bet

    - Better features, e.g. MP3 CD
    - safer, more advanced car
    - more interior space
    - new 1.0 liter engine
    - brand/image. Chevrolet has more upscale brand than hyundai, in my opinion.
    - Design - Joy is definitely a nicer looking car, designed by Giugaro (Italy).
    - Will be available with factory-fitted CNG soon. Dealers will also be able to install in order to maintain the validity of the warranty. This has not yet been announced by Nexus, but I know they are working on it.

    Get the real thing, not the Chinese knock-off (QQ). Chevy all the way.

    BTW, I also know that Chevy Joy has the highest quality ratings (quality index off the production line) than any other car assembled in Pakistan. Check it out for yourselves. These cars are well put together and tough. There have been VERY few warranty claims on the predecessor 800cc Exclusive, so we know this car has extremely high quality. No Chery QQ engine knowcking issues, etc

    Final comment on Chevy Joy, re: CNG. I know that CNG and fuel consumption is a huge concern. I have seen Joy's CNG kit, which was specially designed in Italy (all the leading CNG companies are Italian, btw). It has two smaller cylinders to allow for more truck space, thus improving the CNG/trunk space trade-off. This will be unique in Pakistan - it's a much smarter solution.

    That should address anyone's concerns about CNG.
