I own two Hyundais and I know about their build quality. I mentioned it in quotes because I have not checked it myself and right now its a guess.

and like the discussion is about, its what you want to pay for, an engine or bells and whistles.
how many of them shoots their swifts or i10 to their peak torque? lol i think swift's initial response is not good as i20. correct me if i'm wrong.

I dont think 80 bhp i20 would be "that" bad. Wasnt a 77bhp City a best seller?
yup right dude.

Regarding pricing, right now it looks pretty good in comparison to the competition. Also i20 Magna is positioned about 10k cheaper than i10 Asta MT and that is a brilliant tactic considering the value adds in i20 in terms of size/space and maybe some thing more.

high hopes my friend high hopes, thats what this whole country lives on what will be the next. only 20k difference no ways more like 50k

50k? i would say it would be close to 1 lakh, Getz CRDI is costing 6+lakh on road, I20 CRDI would cost at least 7+lakhs on road.

Let me think why would somebody buy i20
1)Doesnt like driving and doesnt care about engine specs
2)Keeps the car always in garage because of point 1 and is concerned about running costs
3)Likes to show off about the goodies inside but would never drive the car
I quite like your style of stating your opinions as a matter of fact. However its quite subjective to different people. Here is my list of what ppl will buy i20 over Vista QJD:

1) Cant stand the taxi image -> i20
2) Rate safety over thrill -> i20
3) Want audio mounted steering control, gizmos, chilled glove box, trip meter, etc -> i20
4) Want a petrol car due -> i20
5) Better resale -> i20 (subjective)
6) Want more space ->i 20

Its the same reason that some ppl pay more for an automatic version of the same car over manual. Manual is cheaper, gives more FE, is faster. However the automatic gives you convinience -> a feature that rates highest in my criteria when selecting a car.

In a country where bullock carts roam on express ways, 90% of time spent under 80 kmph, I would rather have a car with all the features, good music system, that isolates me from the external noise, has no niggling issues, and preferably automatic.

Mind you QJD is no Skoda RS either!

Having played the devils advocate, I do sincerely hope that Hyundai come with a better engine for the petrol heads. For most folks though (like my bro, and parents) this is a terrific package at a decent price point. If only they had not chosen biege interiors!

BTW wot does PAB (Passanger Airbag) ON/OFF Switch mean does that mean if u dislike ur co passenger u just switch his airbag off hahahahaha real funny this feature.
no no no. its not like that.

the on/off switch is for the following reasons.

1) if there is no front passenger with you. and you get into head on collision with something. the airbag will deploy even when there is no front passenger. its not useful and waste of the safety feature.

2) second is that when you have little kids in the front seat you are supposed to turn off the pass airbags as airbags deployment can hurt the kids.(babies are supposed to be seated in the back with thier own special seats )

this is the international norm. which we indians either dont know or dont care about.

I was talking about the 1.4 ltr Kappa. I think CRDI will be about 40-50k more.

Hyundai should have made airbags optional across all models
