The link also seems to be having a picture of a facelifted i20. looks pretty neat in that blue shade. I shudder to think what the pricing would be ( going by the pricing of the existing i20 variant ) !

I am guessing it would be just about a lakh lesser than the Verna Base model or about a lakh more than i20 petrol. But, still it is not worth it and i can see it go the Fabia way.

Btw, where is the blue shade in those pictures, i could only see a maroon color

at best you can call it lilac.

maroon is more like the colour of ICICI LOMBARD you see in the banner ads above ! maroon is a variant of red

I guess, the Indian mentality is changing(gradually). If we can accommodate for a 7 lakh Jazz then why not an i20. The car manufacturers are targeting the Newly married couples with no children as parking is becoming a huge issues in metros & salaries are good(atleast before recession). This is a part of their targeting strategy.
OT: Being an MBA student can't help the fact of going into strategies.

Bro, if you scan through the pics you will see the blue shade!

"Facelifted" ??? It's not even 6 months since the launch here!
And I don't see either the facelifted i20 or the one in blue shade in the given link or connecting link(s). Do enlighten.

See its like asking if accord can sell for 20 lakh why doesnt embera sell for 16 lakh and the fact is both look similar.Honda does it but that doesnot justify hyundai doing it.If i20 is priced above 7 lakh then its in for a toss.I20 is superior in quality compared to getz or i10 but people would rather go for a honda rather than a hyundai for that price.Brand image would be a consideration for a person spending 7 lakh for a hatch.
still it wont be a huge market too,Skoda fabia sales shows it.

cheers

Once the Honda Jazz rolls out, the i20 is going to be nowhere.. Brand value matters most in India.

And if some person is looking to buy his first car, he would obviously buy a good sedan for that price.

The I20 looks much better than the Jazz. Its very elegant than the Jazz. The Jazz may not appeal to many in terms of looks. And Hyundai is received very well in the economy segment. An I20 diesel for Jazz petrol price (similar trim levels) should sell, if at all the Jazz does well.

Ram, I am in total agreement with you. But still I have my own doubts. Why is the Indian mentality focused on only a few selected products. Is the Cedia any way poorer than City/Fiesta or any other car. Or is the Maruti providing us the best of quality. Its not that. The picture is rosy on the outside but its a huge black world inside.

I would just like that people should not be following one another(blindly), as if one buys a Honda the others follow. & its not that also that Honda is providing the breakthrough technology or best of services though charging a huge premium.

i am not anti honda or any other brigade, but i like to follow my mind & pocket. I would always go for a VFM car & my signature shows

I just want to say that people should come out & trust Hyundai in their products as they have trusted the Santro & i10.

I guess the above post is too off the track. so mods, please don;t ban me!

Ram, you have a whole lot of experience & i would not go against it! But this was my view!

Cheers

Varun

This is great news! Is i10 also coming with a diesel? If you take the lid off the fuse box in your i10 you can see the desciption of all the fuses in it. There are couple of empty fuse slots in the box and on the lid one such corresponding slot is marked as "ECU(DSL)". ECU Diesel?? Does i10 and i120 share the same fuse box?
