Hyundai is following Maruti's old strategy. Launch new product and also keep its old model in the market.

Accent>>>Verna
Santro>>> I10
Getz>>> I20
Elantra>>>I30???

OT: If sachin would have been the brand ambassador for the I series of cars, the ads would have be "I ga!" (typical marathi word for ooi maa!) I la, lapak lapak!

Cheers!

ATleast this much is confirmed. The i20 (or whatever its name going to be) will be manufactured in the new chennai plant by Nov 08 for export purposes. However IF the car would be launched in India is not sure/decided yet. Hyundai has stated it will take that decision based on market demand/condition at that point of time

SOurce: Various news articles/statements by senior Hyundai execs i have read in past 2-3 months.

Default Info on i20

The newly launched Auto Bild (July edition) carries some info on the i20.

It includes an artists impression which i found not so convincing. However the interesting part is the engine line up

i20 will be launched with two engines initially

1.2 Petrol (The same that will also be available in i10 starting August 08)
1.5 Diesel (I am guessing its the Verna/Getz D unit)

Also later a 1.4 petrol will be introduced (the 'kappa' series successor to current 1.3 L in Getz)

I think Hyundai should launch the 1.3 Crdi in the i20. The same motor is doing duty in the i30 in most markets. 1.3crdi shall be a good option and i20 crdi can then compete with Swift DDIS. Wonder why Hyundai is still sticking to the 1.5 CRDI for hatchbacks. That make them quite expensive.

Tushkys Back finally! Thanks for the info. It would be great if you could get some interior pics of New City next time around.
