Awesome stuff Sid, really have to admire your resourcefulness. You deserve an award of some kind for consistently giving this forum a whole bunch of scoops.

On the car I don't fancy the chocolate dual tone and the wheels do look undersized for the car. A more powerful engine would definitely give those looking at sedans something to think about.

You beat me to that.. i was about to post that.

Features looks good but i am disappointed with the engine spec. it is same as i10 1.2l. They should have gone with a bigger engine.. lets see how they price it..

SID, there you go..at it again !! Great stuff mate.
The car looks good. The interiors are great but that chocolate color aint a good choice. Overall including the features, design and interiors its a great package. Now they gotta bring in a good engine and price it rightly. I think its got the right ingredients to be a HIT!!

Cheers.

I just dont think the biege interiors with a black central stereo console gel. I would have rather preffered a silver black interior package.

I think the ANHC suffers with the same problem as well. Where the central stereo console doesnt gel with the rest of the car as the biege treatment has been done only for India.

I think the car looks very nice not only from the exterior but from the interior too. I think this again takes the level of cars to another level.

I am loving it but for the interior colors - biege, brown and black ! What were Hyundai thinking - give me an all black interior and boy the vRS will go on sale

With so many goodies - the top end might end up close to 7.5L

Wow! Wonderful car! Great scoop as usual Sid.

My observations:

1) The glare of the dashboard issue has been taken care. But I would have liked BLACK instead of BROWN.

2) Thankfully, the fake wooden thing from Getz is gone.

3) Hyundai has sadly missed the chrome strip on the grille. The car would look more complete with that.

4) The info displayed at the centre is really good and detailed.

5) The gear knob does not look too good.

6) Very feature rich.

7) Side and Curtain airbags... Wow!

8) I somehow feel that 1.2 should have gone in the Era(Please introduce it as low-end) and the new 1.4 and 1.5 CRDi should have gone in the Magna and Asta. A Sportz with 1.6 125bhp should also have been there. Hyundai, are you listening???

I somehow feel that this is bound to be a runaway success, atleast in cities.

Well, IF they don't price it right it will be i20 Vs LINEA !

Well thats a funny interpretation but actually this feature helps you save a baby's life if it's strapped into the front seat with a child-seat. If the airbag was on, it would crush the baby. This is a mandatory feature in many countries.
