Don't even bother. You stand to compromise the dynamics of your car by increasing its ride height.

A viable solution, however, is to get an after-market suspension. These will be stiffer and hence the car wont sit / sag as much with load (resulting in better ground clearance).

In the meanwhile, tackle speedbumps diagonally. You won't scrape the underbelly then.

Thanks GTO, I was planning a trip to Leh hence this question; tackling the stones and rubble are going to be tough in an I20.

The stock suspensions are already stiff to my liking and as you said i would be compromising the dynamics of the car by going for an after market suspension, a mere 10 to 15 mm more would have taken care of many issues.
