DSL is diesel. Only diesel magna has ABS/EBD.

+1

I think the Hyundai strategy is skimming. They are not looking at numbers here as their export orders seem to be full.

If they were serious abt the indian market, then the i20 could have commanded a premium of 50K over a similarly specced Punto.

I am happy for Fiat. Now they dont have to worry abt i20

Wow, that's way off my budget to get an AT car to replace my aging Santro. i20 1.4AT will cost about 8.5 OTR in Bangalore. That's full 2 lacs more than 1.2 Asta! Absolute nonsense premium for an AT transmission and a marginally more powerful engine. For that price they should have at least provided the goodies they give in their European models such as 15'/16' alloys, ESP etc.

i agree here, hyundai does not seem to be worried with numbers in indian market.

they just want to keep i20 diesel and 1.4 petrol as their cash cows, which will only be used to push operating margin figures in their balance sheets.

the premium for the 1.4 petrol is well astounding. however - it touches the magic 100 mark - hot hatch!

As many feared,
Hyundai messed up with prices again
I was seriously considering i20 diesel hatch as a replacement for my Santro next year because i didnt want Punto (own a linea and has same interiors).
Its way off my budget now and i cant spend 7L + for hatch.

Why Hyundai why???

I was looking forward to the 1.4 petrol but not in an auto-only avatar. And it costs a full 2 lacs more than the 1.2. I am astounded. The Punto seems more VFM than ever.

Are they giving test drives already? We already know the looks of the car and I only want to know how it performs.

Going by pedigree, it should be a good one at that as well.

Ok. If you are adamant on comparing i20 AT with Honda city AT, I can still help you if you don't yet get it. Honda City AT without alloys and fog lamps is 9.22L ex-showroom Bangalore, whereas i20 AT with alloys, fog lamps, electrically foldable ORVM, cooled glovebox is around 7.72L. The difference is thus around 2L (if we purchase alloys and fog lamps from Honda).

But this comparison is not going anywhere. You should be comparing Jazz with i20. If you want to compare city with i20, let the city price be brought down first or offer some more equipments as options as least to do a feature equivalent comparison.

Wrong. i20 AT will be close to 9L OTR Bangalore.

i20 1.4 AT Asta is listed as 7,31,130 ex-showroom for Delhi. This if we consider as same in Bangalore, the OTR price will be nearer to 8.5 than 9 lacs. It may be 9 lacs for the Asta (O) model with sunroof, side curtain aribags and map lights.
