Compared to existing 1.2 Magna.

Good thing : Electrically adjustable outside mirrors

Bad, Very bad, thing : No tilt steering barring Asta, why-o-why?

Current readily available stock with the dealer -

Three i10 Magna's (Red, Champagne Gold and Carbon Grey)
Three i10 Sport's (Red, Champagne Gold and Carbon Grey)

Didn't ask if they were Diesel or Petrol.

Facelifted TD cars are expected in a week's time I was told. They don't have a single car in automatic available for display and said that Auto i10's are made to order cars and hence are not available

Are automatic i10 sale's figures that low???
Funkydevil, did i read your post correctly? Are you saying that hyundai is offering Rs 30,000 discount on the new face lifted i10's? Or are you saying the dealer is offering that discount on the left over stock of cars with the old design?

I hope its the former

Plus there is no diesel i10 yet.

The dealer now has backtracked on his committment to carried over discounts to the new i10. Prices have also risen !!

the ASTA AT WS Sunroof (there is no option of ASTA AT without sunroof) is costing me all of 6,59,293 OTR Pune Outside Octroi.

Genuine i10 Mattings and Mudflaps with all windows and rear windscreen Filming will be offered with this car by the dealer but NO DISCOUNT !!!

590918 ex showroom + 19591 insurance + 41364 RTO + 4500 (other charges???????) + 2920 3rd year warranty gives us the GRAND total of 659293 !!!!

However the car is really nice inside out !! the attached image i hope does some justice to the Sportz interiors with the blue backlighting. Its really soothing ! the drive in the city was also pleasurable and definitely the driveability in the city is high for the Manual tranny. I could not drive the AT since its unavailable and mine is supposed to be the first vehicle they deliver !

Are these "other charges" commonly levied by showrooms for various expenses ??

Are you sure about the discounts part of it? I just came back from HMP Chennai & they have told that there are no discounts on offer now.

I just test drove the vehicle, but only on a very short stretch. The salesman told me that i was the first customer to test drive the car. Pick up feels better than the old i10. Gear shift is also smoother.

I hv booked the car by paying advance of Rs. 10,000/-. Not decided whether to go for the Magna or Sportz

I totally agree on the above points.
Had a first look at this car today and WoW great job done.

Also Hyundai should keep an option to upgrade from a lower model.
for e.g Things like fog lamps cannot be fitted without changing the bumper of i20. A customer dont like the answer "sorry it cannot be retro fitted"

Yes my friends, I am hundred percent sure of what I heard. The DEALER is offering me a 20k discount on the current i10 along with 10k worth of accessories. (mudflaps, tints etc.)

And I agree with Dieselite, the pricing for the i10 Asta is ridiculous. 6.5 lakhs !!!

@Dieselite: Could you provide information on which Dealer you are going to? I went to Kothari before the launch (last week) and booked Sportz A/T with old pricing. He ensured (written on the contract) that he will ensure price protection (no discounts though). Do you the on-road price for the new Sprortz A/T in PMC limits?
And by the way, all dealers charge the "other charges" and they are pretty much same across the board (about 4.5K).

The interior is a vast improvement over the previous model and overall the car looks better. The 'Sportz' variant is the best option which retails at RS5.25lacs on-road ex-Chennai but a set of alloys wheels will push the price up but they're a must buy. The wheel covers are incredibly tacky.

One of the best upgrades I've seen in the A+ segment over some years. The best part is that improvements are not just skin deep or cosmetic. The major changes are in the interiors, features and most importantly the engine.

One thing to be noticed it that all these changes were done in the exact same areas where the i10 was found lacking wrt the competition - change in engine performance in low-range (as per initial reports) and the beige interior. Also addition of new features along with airbag options is a nice addition. However, I still think that Airbag+ABS option should be made available across entire range. But this applies to all the cars.

So all in all, Hyundai have done whatever was feasible to make the car more aligned to market demands. I feel it's gonna scale new level of sales. The only thorn in its path could be the upcoming Swift.

@blackasta - IMO the i10 1.2 is similar in price range to Swift, especially after the price increase. And whatever difference there may be does not amount to much in terms of EMI. As discussed in this thread, i10 Asta is tantalizingly close to i20 Sportz now. And Swift is definitely at a lower price than i20 and Polo (of at least equivalent spec).

However what you say would be absolutely true if the new Swift is going to be priced higher than the current generation.

We'll be around to check that
Somehow my senses tell me the new swift has to have gizmos on top of a superb engine+handling to out compete i20 (gizmo laden) /Polo (brand weight) /Etios (Toyota reliability), and that shall take the price range to similar territories.

Completely agree with you. Even I have a similar gut feeling

However, knowing Maruti, they have shown in the past that they have enough in their hands to start a new price war if the need be. For the new Swift, the major improvement they need to do is in the quality department. Engine+Handling, it has absolutely no issues. And brand weight is something which will take Maruti ages to meet up to the German lineage of VW. And IMHO, Swift cannot afford to have a substantial price increase as just above and below its price range, there is a real dogfight.

Attended the Mumbai launch event last evening. I must say I'm impressed with the effort from Hyundai.

I feel the new model looks way better than the out going one. I'm glad to see it is more than just a cosmetic facelift with some new decals. The fit and finish like before is by far the best I have seen in this segment. The new dash is a welcome change over the earlier beige finish. The blue light theme on the audio console was a bit too loud for me though.

The car has been launched here first and will have its international launch is at the upcoming Paris Motor Show.

On another note expect the Santa Fe launch soon. It will be a 7 seater with a 2.2 litre VGT diesel engine.
