BTW, for all the talk about the engine & being underpowered, in UK spec the i20 1.2 does 0-100 kmph in 12.9 seconds and reached a top whack of around 165 kmph.

Much better then a lot of bigger cars out there in our market.

Thats 1248cc engine and very different from indian one, so nothing can be concluded, but 1.2 kappa on i10 gives 0-100 in 13 sec , considering the extra weight, even if we get 0-100 in 14 sec and get a good mileage then its surely a hit.

Whats this "Rear AC Cooling" ?

0-100 in 13sec is pretty good. The diesel should also give similar numbers.

Not sure if this has already been pointed out before in this thread.

The website where 5 cylinders and 45mm fuel capacity were quoted is not an official hyundai website. Check the disclaimer at the bottom of the page.

The official i20 website is Welcome to Hyundai Motors India Limited

Hey all. Just checked it out in the flesh. It looks and feels much better than the pictures in the forum. The brown color of the dash does not look gaudy at all as some of the pics here show. It is actually a very well designed interior layout.

My only gripes are:
1. The quality of plastic was ok though I shouldn't be complaining since I get so many features!
2. Reat-seat leg-space is perhaps an inch or 2 too less. Infact I'm thinking if Hyundai could've compromised in the huge boot space and given that slightly more leg space, they would've nailed the chauffeur-driven market too!

Overall, I really liked it. The TD cars will arrive in 3-4 days so lets keep a watchout for that.

Bookings haven't started though I committed the sales rep verbally for a sparkle blue Asta, subject to a test drive!

By the time Fiat's GP is out, we'll have the next gen Swifts and i10s/20s running around.

Hey the pictures on the Autocar Forum feature black and grey interiors

I guess Hyundai has taken the i20 design cues from Mazda2, check the Mazda2 pics here:

I think the Hyundai Team has just read your post and some other posts too about proof reading LOL
They have rectified their mistakes it seems !! Way to go for pricing for sure !! Amazing features but where is the CRDi ?? Wish I had a Verna CRDi or at least the 1.4 CRDi in it and this would be a stonker !!! Boo Hoo ..... I still have one extra PowerBox for CRDi lying around waiting for the right car

The website is nowhere as brilliant as the car.

Welcome to Hyundai Motors India Limited

Alsom doesn't the steering look inspired by the Civic?

I think Hyundai is spot on with the pricing and the feature list of I20.
someone who wants to buy a Petrol Hatch would definitely not mind spending 50k over a swift petrol provided their budget allows.
For me i think it would be a great buy provided its fun to drive.

Some more comments about the car:

1. The electric retract feature of ORVM's works even without the keys inside
2. The Audio system is very good. Good amount of bass and mids. It definitely needs a good set of tweeters though - I found the treble at highest setting to be lacking.
3. The front bumper has a 1 inch black strip running which will definitely hit a lot of speed-breakers. Hope it doesn't destroy the bumpers. It can be removed though.
4. The car looks really long for a hatchback!
5. The headroom is great!
6. The shoulder room and front seat leg space are good
7. The music system is slightly cumbersome to use but steering mounted controls work well
8. There are LOADS of cupholders in the space between the seats
9. The rear seat floor is almost flat so can seat 3 easily
10. With my driving position adjusted (almost all the way back) the rear leg space is not good for a 5'10 person.
11. This car will look AWESOME with brown leather interiors.
12. The use of chrome is really good and classy - not gaudy IMO.
13. The Ground Clearance is 168 mm.
14. The steering setting is slightly low and interferes with my legs if I bring the driver seat even 3/4th up! I'll have to set my position down to drive it without the steering hitting my legs.
15. That's all folks!

More after a TD

Nice info reppy, rear room legroom looks ok from the pics but you are the second person complaining about it so it could be an issue. The car is really loaded with features, the only downside is the engine but in the context of the Indian market 80bhp for a hatch is certainly respectable if not good.

I guess all he negativity is coming because the same engine is also use in the i10. Have registered online for a TD. waiting for someone here to TD it and give us report on the engine.

Does this happen in spite of all the reach and rake adjustments it comes with?
