this whole excise-cut driven engine capacity limitation by manufaturers is getting frustrating. I was most disappointed when the new Indica Vista also came with a 1.3. quadra jet, multi jet, fancy jet, water jet, bollocks. give us the meat guys.

fancy jet, water jet, turbo jet, qudra jet cant stop laughing lolz

i would just buy this car over others for the 6 airbags. FATC, rear AC vents--(not sure).

just amazing car!!!. hyundai is awesome yepeee!!

IMO, i20 is over-priced by around 30,000. A price range of 4.5 - 5.5 is some sort of decent pricing. If this is introductory price, and a bigger engine on the cards, what will be the price of i20 after one year?

I'm not impressed by the photos of this car. I hope it looks better in the flesh. Why do the new Hyundai i-cars have a flabby look to them?.

For sure the price is higher than Indica Vista. But then i20 also has more equipment! And good looks never hurt, people pay for that. Vista is so anonymous and boring.

Tata are not totally helpless. I think eventually they will react and launch a:
  • 89 bhp FIAT diesel. Same 1.3 engine, but with VG turbo.

  • trim variant above Aura (Ether?) that matches most/all of the i20s features.

I dont think its fair to get a price idea from Getz CRDI vis a vis i20 diesel. i20 diesel will sport either 1.4 ltr 75 bhp or 1.4ltr 100 bhp engine instead of the 1.6 ltr verna engine. It would qualify for the excise benefit and of course would be cheaper than its elder brother doing duty on Verna. A price difference of around 60k can be expected vis a vis 1.2 kappa.
One more thing I want to remind the forummers is that 77 bhp engine with decent handling car is quite okeyish. In outright acceleration it should outdo the 75 bhp MJD engine from fiat. Of course the torque would mostly dictate the in gear accerlation and usable power. The engine though is quite good for a 1.2 ltr. Having dual overhead camshafts, and its quite new to the engine doing duty on Swift petrol. Going by torque figures, if its even close to driveability as Swift Petrol, than we have a sure shot winner on our hands.

Hyundai please do something about the interior color, before ppl puke to .

Here is a small comparo between Swift Zxi, Vdi and i20 Asta.

Compare - New Cars

Not a great feat here, but a very good step forward by Hyundai. I appreciate them for taking a bold step in redefining the segment especially in these bad times.

Want to see how Honda reponds with the Jazz. Cant expect much goodies from Honda apart from a high price tag, good built and decent engine.

well... I think all those who call cars overpriced/VFM without living with/driving the cars need to try this:

buy the most aptly priced car you believe cheaper than the car you call overpriced, kit it up aftermarket to the same features as the overpriced car, live with it for six months. Then try to borrow for a day the overpriced car from any friends/relatives/rentals if possible. then rate your experience.

I am sure there are a few cars which certainly will lose out since they actually are overpriced (think fabia diesel, i10), but in general the overall ownership costs, convenience, feeling of general happiness when you enter the car erase any 'overpricedness'.

But it is coming with a cost...i suppose. Safety features on the cars in India has the riders...pay extra for safety of you and your dear ones.

It is there to turn off the airbag in case a baby or small child is on the seat. Airbags tend to kill in such instances. No laughing matter.

Why do we have to drag fiat into this thread?? And which 'Feature rich' car from Fiat are u talking about?? AFAIK, those losers haven't launched any worthwhile cars here in the last decade!! Unless you are referring to the linea/grande punto!! Pls let them launch something first, then call them a car company!!

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
Oh my god!! Indica for driving pleasure?? Now i've seen everything. From your profile I understand u own an indica Tcic, compared to that, the vista may be good, but sorry to say this, its just another poorly put together piece of junk by Tata! Heck even with the same engine as the swift, it is nowhere as involving/fast to drive!

Whaddaya expect?? There is no such thing as a free lunch?? Will you pay them the money to install the airbags etc on all the cars for free?? No right??
Atleast they're offering it as an option, which itself is a first in its class!

Zakas!!! is the word.

Correct pricing Correct feature list.

Hyundai will definitely put more engine options in future , but for normal city driving, the current engine option is good enough.

Hope this becomes a hit and will set a trend to give offer complete cars in all the ranges by everybody.

Kudos to hyundai!!
