Whats your Budget? How much can you strech beyond your budget?

Hyundai I20 Asta petrol is offering you amazing Features at the Price around 6L. So the Diesel I20 will definately be around 7ish. Can you spend that much thats the question?
It also depends on your running. If your running per month is 1000KMS or less i would go for i20 anyday. Checkout I20 once it'll blow you away.

Test drove the i20 today. This car is feature packed like no other. Of course there is no scope of comparing it with Getz in any way. The Asta is the most appropriate one to buy. Engine is not about outright power but then it is more than adequate for propelling it. The refinement levels of course are good and the dashboard and plastics are better than a segment above. Much better actually. The display is high resolution and not a regular digital one. The key is awesome, similar to a Lauras. Gear box is meaty and acurate, though very soft similar to an accent or Getz. It is 6.35 lacs OTR in Pune and my friend is booking one tomorrow. No discounts whatsoever.

I would say if you really a need a diesel option then wait for i20 CRDI.

After seeing the response from market, I think Hyundai should release the Crdi model in four to five months.

If if the petrol option is OK with you , i20 is the way to go.

Touch choice - only because the Getz CRDi comes with rocket-propulsion as OE. Else there would be no contest, I would think. The equipment levels on the i20 is comprehensive, and if the i10 is any indicator then the interiors should be from a higher segment.

Hey Jas,

congrats on your new i20 !! Probably one of the 1st i20s on the forum. Please post detailed pictures and a review soon. Can't wait to read the same. Which version did you get - Magna, Asta or Asta (O) ?

Congrats once again and enjoy the car ! Any upgrades planned ? (tyres / wheels / music system / leather interior etc)


Warm regards,
Venkat

well..!! if you guys drive normally, like no such adrenaline rush or something like that then you can go for i20 else 235 nm of torque will be a big waste in the cities. i20 is really a big hatch with loads of features. If you are not so concerned about safety then go for getz crdi, but u need to control yourself a lot.

i'm also waiting to buy a new car, the only reason i rejected getz crdi for me just because of the safety reasons even if they would had provided ABS, i would had gone for it. I'm waiting for i20 diesel for around 7-8 months and still waiting. As i wanna drive a good hatch with loads of power and safety too.

if u can wait then wait for i20 diesel.

Hey dude,
I have to be honest with you and this coming from a Swift Diesel fan. The Crdi is amazing. So much power for such a small car. So if you're into the whole driving experience, get the CRDi. If you're into creature comforts, get the i20.

The i20 engine, you will find, is a lot more under powered than the CRDi. Also, it is important to consider that common rail engines are very torqy so that makes the car feel very good at lower rpms. Petrol on the other hand is high reving meaing you need to push the car to feel the power. So essentially, if you're like me (someone into torque over outright bhp) get the CRDi. Its an awesome engine with good bhp and awesome torque, highest in its bracket.

Hope this helps.

i think getz crdi is an awesome car..i think i20 is all show and no go with that puny 1200cc engine..even the engine bay has acres of space inside it.that engine doesnt doesnt belong there .why cant hyundai people understand that. so if your basic needs are creature comfort go for i20,,if you need driving experience go for the getz..

Hi all,
My friend has a query here.. need all your suggestions..

" I am owner of a Palio Multijet and Santro.I am planning to exchange Santro with Getz Diesel(110 bhp) or i20- disel \Fiat punto). Which one would be good choice for me?

Considering the fact that I am not worried about the mileage, I like performance cars ,the speed of the get disel is amazing.So little bit confused to which one to go for?

I already own a palio MJD is it still worth going for Getz disel?

Mod's Note: Please type your messages directly on the board rather than using an external word processor like MS Word.
