This is not a complete statement. AFAIK this feature was available only from 800, 5 speed MPFi. I maybe wrong though. The earlier 800's had only 2 speeds for the wiper.

I feel that the first hatchback which came with a single wiper was Fiat Uno.

Correct me if i'm wrong.

No no! The intermittent speed wiper was available on a M800 that we owned in 96.

I don't own a i20. Even then, i had seen my friends using the cooled glove box(Opel Astra) to keep the softdrinks like Pepsi chilled. May be that's the use of it..

I think the i10 Asta (o) was the first to offer sunroof, before i20 was even launched.
