Handling and Suspension
Offered with a mechanical steering is, however, a bit on downside as most of truck in same category are equipped with power steering option. Because of the mechanical option, driver is required to put more effort while moving the truck and fatigue is more for sure.
Coming down to suspension, Semi Elliptical Laminated Multileaf springs at front and rear which cut of most of the jerks and bumps experienced while driving. The Heavy Duty forged I Beam Reverse Elliot type front axle and combination of Single Speed Hypoid Gear & Heavy Duty Tubular Dummy type 1st & 2nd rear axle also helps to attain balanced and bump free drive.

With Air service brakes and separate pair of parking brakes, 2516 IL is very easy to come at rest on most of the roads with load full to its capacity. These brakes ensure that the truck stay out of danger in most of the conditions on accident prone Indian roads.
Also, if a mishap happens then to save the passengers from getting into severe medical conditions the company has used high strength lab tested material for the body and chassis. However, there are no seat belts or any other features like ABS and EBD to reduce the effect of a crash.
Design and Comfort
2516 IL is not much of art piece when it comes to the aesthetic part and company can definitely work on it to improve. Right now the truck is getting sold with regular design radiator grille, 2 piece wind shield and round shaped headlamps.
There is also nothing much in the cabin to describe apart from standard seats, regular controls and needed space, The scope of improvement is also there and the company is supposed to improve that in upcoming future.
