Yes, i20 Active is actually actively being sold and clocks an average of 1,500 units which is better than Figo and Liva hatchbacks and almost at par with Polo.

Early 2016 Sportz was terrific VFM @ ~8L OTR Bangalore for the petrol.

Tilt & telescopic steering, ACC with rear vent, reverse camera with display on auto-dimming IRVM, auto-folding ORVMs, good space and premium cabin feel. The only things it lost w.r.t. Asta was push-button start, alloys and rear wash/wipe, which was about 50k dearer.

Then Baleno became a rage, and some idiot at Hyundai thought chopping features without reducing prices was a good idea!

Loved the facelift. Hyundai has a knack at messing up facelifts (recent eg: Xcent) but they've done a good job this time. The rear especially looks more Mercedes than Hyundai.

The interior is great as always, and I've always felt it to be one of the best cabins this side of 15 lakhs, better than even the Verna. I wish the improvements were more than skin deep though. With the Baleno taking away sales, they could've tweaked the mechanical package for a better driving experience, which is its only weak link.

Agree with many of the comments listed here. Chopping away the niceties from sport version does give the Baleno an edge in the first half. However the premium feel of the cabin & the better refinement of the diesel pot always has the I20 getting the lead back and even triumph's the elder brother Verna in a few areas!

They could have lended the Verna's 1.4 petrol pot in i20. Given the huge difference in the prices between Diesel & Petrol, I20 Petrol would have made great sense and a lovely deal....

I too, feel that the old tail lamps were better. The styling was unique (Hyundai only) and it definitely had many fans. Now even though the new ones resemble the one on Mercedes somewhat, it makes it lose the uniqueness.
