VIN is stamped below the driver's seat. Please refer to this image from our official review.

Hi drpudhi, My friend has booked an I20 Asta(O) as well but he too was given a 17 digit VIN. How did you find the month of manufacture as October from your VIN number? The vin decoder says that the 19th digit gives the month of manufacture information.

VIN is stamped below the driver's seat. The 19th digit represents the manufacturing month. Refer this post to decode the manufacturing month.

Congrats! It's November 2016 model. The tenth character 'G' represents the year 2016 and the eleventh character 'B' represents the November month.

The 19th digit represents the month of manufacture. It will be stamped below drivers seat. Ask the dealer to give that number (Will be noted as chassis number in hyundai documents).

Yes, it is supposed to be manufactured in 2016 as the dealer says. He is trying to sell it to me and I just want to be double sure. The details on the below link says the following

Delivery date 26 02 2016
YOM as 15/1

So I am confused if it is a 2015 or 2016.

(When I click on one of the links it even says Date From as 2014-09)

Hi friends
I have booked a car in December. However the factory /dealer is offering me a March 2016 model. This was checked by me as per VIN no.
However the dealer claims that he has the builders certificate and in the RC book the date will be Dec.2016. and warranty will also start from Dec. 2016.
My question here is that as per VIN the vehicle is March built but RC book it will be December so it that illegal by any way?
Also when selling the car will it affect the price ?
