Of course that doesn't rule out the possibility of a 1.4 or even a 1.6 top end version - so I think you might be right too.
1.2L kappa i10 is already 75 hp, even though they will bring 1.2L 80 hp remapped or something like that... only 5 hp difference? Also, i20 will be heavier than i10, so 5 hp difference stands nowhere.

So you think 80 BHP is not enough for a compact car like i20? How much BHP do you think is needed?

I was comparing it with i10 Kappa.

Well..!! best option 1.6L 102 hp for petrol and verna's engine for diesel or 1.6L CRDi engine with big tyres.

Beat It

Will it sell???

The good thing with 1.2l engine would be duty exemptions that can help Hyundai to keep price down. Price would be the key for it to sell not the engine. In India it does not matter what engine you put, what matters is price should be good.

A smaller engine can also mean better mileage and that would be plus point in Indian context.

Finally, I dont think Verna 1.6 sells at all!!! Why would i20 1.6 sell ?

And finally, considering the financial condition of the market, Hyundai dare not launch an expensive model - they will need domestic sales in the next year to compensate for low export orders which have already had an impact - they have already laid off 3300 temporary workers and are considering reducing shifts.

Which means that we should expect competitive pricing for the i20 - they need the domestic sales now in the coming months more than ever to sustain ROI on their investments in the new 6 lacs units/annum plant.

Any one of the moderators, can you please change the subject of this thread so as to have i20? The search does an exact match thus i20 search does not include this thread.
