Wow, that's a big scoop. The car looks great unlike i10. I have put up the pictures here. Credit goes to Autocar India.

looks good. If only Hyundai India price it right - imagine - a CRDi i20 with airbags, ABS and climate control at 700,000 on road - you are looking at a best seller.

Awesome!! One of the best looking cars in the hatch segment.

Love it except for the rear wiper. The Zxi/Fabia have sexy rear wipers.

New Verna looks more like a 2-door hatchback. Can someone shed more light on this and if possible few pics on the same.

This looks like a winner but i hope we get automatic transmission as an option and would love it in grey or black interiors instead of unusable beige.

Looks good. thank god it did not carry forward the tinny look of i10. Would a diesel with an auto tranny too much to ask for 7L?

Even if people say look is subjective, I still think that Indica V2/Vista, Spark, Srv, etc are some of the best looking hatches on our roads if I judge without any prejudice. I will not make my list of ugly ones as it may offend people

Certainly one of the more prettier cars made by Hyundai. Miles ahead of their santro/elantra/i 10 image.

I have to give it to Hyundai on this one. They seem to have found a good design theme starting from their i series. I really love their i30 design. I hope they bring the i30 to India too as a hatch.

i20 seems like a good car. Let us see what the initial reviews say.
