Default Nice Work, TBHP!!

Looks like Team-BHP has beaten other's to the quick again!

Hyundai i20 CRDi Diesel Spotted! | CarTradeIndia.com

Good work. Proof of where one should come to see the latest

PS. Very interested in the price Hyundai decides for this car. IF they price it right, should spell huge volumes for H, and a huge pain in the ... for H

I would not trust anybody's FE claims. Yes, its true that Hyundai has revealed its R-class diesel engines, 2.0 ltr developing 180 bhp and 2.2 developing 198 bhp, i.e. 90 bhp/ltr. So I think Hyundai does have technology and experience ( thanks to detroit diesel ) to build diesel motors. But about the 1.4 giving 22kmpl, well, as we all know it depends upon the right foot and anticipatory driving skills of driver. The operating conditions and the operator matter a lot for FE. If my father can coax out 16 kmpl on highway with 4 persons + luggage + AC, it does not mean that Baleno is efficient. The max I can extract in similar condition is 14kmpl.

This is the reason why ARAI has come with some new rule that was very quickly accepted by Maruti Suzuki.
So lets not jump to conclusion weather it gives 22 kmpl or not. What we can, in general, conclude is that its going to be quite an efficient unit, thats all.

If it is 1.4 90bhp, I believe Hyundai did the right thing waiting for Fiat to launch GP. I am eagerly waiting for i20 too now.

I think Hyundai India has been making Diesel i20s for some time know, but havent launched it in India yet.
The i20s are only made in India and there are Diesel versions being sold abroad. Heres a TD report for the 1.4 diesel

Me too almost confirmed on GP MJD E+ but i20 is tempting too, but if there is no ABS for 90BHP for that price (even as option) don't think it's a VFM.

What will be i20's electrical folding ORVM's cost against a manual folding one in GP?

Electric folding ORVM's will be the first feature to get knocked off from the diesel variant. I'll be surprised in Hyundai retain it.

This is fantastic . If priced right this would hit the Jazz big time and make Honda rethink its pricing blunders. This would be by far the perfect premium city hatch. Hope the prices stay under 7 lakhs though.

Does anyone have an idea on the i20 AT pricing?

I believe Hyundai won't cut features on the diesel i20 because what differentiates the i20 from competition is the VFM proposition(albeit with a little premium). The car is simply loaded with features. I do think they will have an ABS option too.

CBlazer:

The auto tranny should be with the 1.4L petrol (100 bhp) engine, as it has been introduced overseas. Of course the 1.2L petrol Kappa also has a matching 4 speed auto tranny in the i10, but this combo would make the i20 very sluggish. So my guess is that Hyundai would introduce the auto tranny as an option in the 1.4L petrol version. And I hope it is in the Asta variant.

Dippy:

Yes, if Hyundai prices the i20 CRDi right, along with the 1.4L petrol version, this would be the hottest hatch in the Indian market. However I doubt whether Honda would react to this by reducing the Jazz's price. That would be like admitting the Jazz was priced too high in the 1st place.

The i20 1.4 A/T should be about 40-45k more than the manual variant, going by the i10's price list. So if the i20 Asta 1.2 manual costs 6.28L on road in Chennai (actual price), the 1.4L petrol Asta would be 40k more (as announced by the company to the press sometime back), making it 6.68L on road in Chennai. The i20 Asta 1.4L A/T version would then cost around 7.05 to 7.15L on road in Chennai, which is still good pricing in my opinion.

The i20 Asta CRDi in Chennai should cost 6.28+80k = 7.08L on road in Chennai.

So probably the i20 CRDi 1.4L and petrol 1.4L A/T would cost around the same. At those prices, I think the car would be a hit.

Warm regards,
Venkat

Yes. But they have thankfully acknowledged Team-Bhp. Would have been better if they had put the link to our website too
