Please don't get this done unless really required.

Its a very sensitive and important sensor for the engine.
Frequent fiddling around with this sensor can create lot of problems.

For the record, in my Getz diesel the sensor cleaning was required only after 150k kms.

Replacement of this sensor may take you back by approx. 15k.

Congratulations on your new i20! The alloys are a perfect match for the car.

How do you find the 205/50 R16s when compared to the stock 185/70 R14s in terms or ride quality, handling & steering weight?

The ride quality has reduced by a small margin. On bad surfaces, you feel the suspension thuds more compared to the stock. But no issues experienced with Handling or steering feedback which remains the same.

Nankang's are cheap compared to other big players and they have a lot of spec options. I got them for Rs 5200/- per piece. As per the feedback from two of my friends (first gen i20 diesel and Polo Diesel), Nankang's lasted between 40000 - 43000 kms for them, which means they last long. The road noise is almost same when compared to stock.

Hi Guys,

I took a test drive this afternoon for the i20 Asta model per my experience goes it was good experience all round. Did find the steering a bit heavy to drive as compared to the G10. Unfortunately Hyundai s not offering a single rupee of discount on the i20.

However I would like to pose a question to you all. Below are few cars I have test driven in the past 2 weeks except the xcent have I have driven all. Now my question is not on the segment as the price difference is not huge, however there is a lot of plus and minus as far as safety and other features goes. So I would like to have your suggestions on what car stands tall if you do a comparison on various grounds.


1. Figo 2015(last year inventory) top titanium variant 7 lacs on road (flat discount of 70k)
2 Jazz 2016 - 7.30 for model above the base model (no discount)
3 Hyundai Grand 10 close to 6 lacs (good discounts for all variants)
4 Hyundai I20 7.11 lacs on road Asta model (No discounts)
5 Hyundai xcent - cant recollect the exact figure but good discounts and comes less than 7 lacs.

Please share your thoughts to help me make a decision.

Hi elvis_83,

I've been quoted a Dec 2015 manufactured i20 elite Asta(O) CRDi for 9.5 lacs OTR in Hyderabad with few things included (0 dep insurance, seat covers, car cover, floor mats & mud flaps). Actual OTR is 10.2 lacs and its going to increase to 10.42 lacs from next week. I too am hunting for a new car and this is the best discount I have received.

Also, a Dec 2015 manufactured Jazz top end model diesel version was on offer for 10 lacs OTR in Hyderabad where as the actual OTR is 10.55 lacs.

You may want to try hard on the discount part.

Hope this helps.

My apologies - Hyundai I20 7.11 lacs is for the magna model - the Asta goes up to 7.76 on road and all prices quoted are for the petrol variant only. My commute is very less and only weekend drive and casual long drive(100-300 kms total) once in 3-4 months. I stay in Navi Mumbai.. Price are as per Vashi passing.

Additionally, I have tried to check if they have a 2015 i20 in stock apparently they dont, they had 2 G10 Magna model. Honda too had 2015 models but only the AT version that goes too high 8+ lacs so thats is out of reach

Hi mezereo

Thanks for sharing the info. However the pricing I shared was for petrol variant. Also to correct on what I shared its 7.11 for the Magna model and 7.76 for Asta for I20
Additionally, I too was offered a 2015 Jazz petrol variant but they only have 2 AT left after some discount its around 8.20-8.30 (All prices per Vashi passing.

I would love to know if anyone could provide any references in helping obtain some benefits /discounts at Sharayu Hyundai-Navi Mumbai for the I20

Iv had an i20 for a short while and have found that I could do with a stronger high beam. The light is too diffused at present

Could someone suggest bulb upgrades?

While many folks have upgraded to the white light bulbs, I would prefer not to use those

Hi,

Would recommend Osram Night breaker plus, definitely a 30% improvement over stock bulbs, if I remember correctly I got them for 1900/-.

hey guys..

I am going to have one more round of test drive for the i20 tomorrow this time with Modi Hyundai... Apparently they have few 2015 models available unlike sharayu and providing some cash discount too.

Hi Team,

Took delivery of my i20 elite CRDi Asta(O) last night.

Thanks to the forum posts, I had a peaceful and happy car purchase. Completed my PDI, verified the car to be manufactured in Dec 2015. The sales team at Lakshmi Hyundai were courteous and were able to answer all our questions and doubts with patience.

Likes:
Interiors quality
Engine Refinement
Cabin insulation
Gear shift

Dislikes:
Some what expensive
Can feel sharp bumps
No proper hand rest for rear passengers
Missing DRL's, cornering lamps setup, six air bags, sun roof, rear discs, auto wipers (if only wishes were horses..)

Next on my list to get:
3M Nomad mats,
PPF for scratch prone areas,
Anti rust/corrosion under body coating,
Headlamp upgrade

Was thinking of going with 3M annual packages. Anyone have any experiences with 3M in specific to annual packages which one is better.

Happy motoring everyone!

Thanks,

I took my vehicle for 2nd service today (10,000 kms or 1 year). My odometer reads 10,200 kms and hence the service. When I was in early 9,000, I found that engine oil level was very low and turned completely black. I replaced the oil in Shell petrol bunk with synthetic oil for around 5k. Now when I took the vehicle for service, service is insistent on change of oil and they say they can't perform service without the change of oil. I couldn't understand that reasoning and hence brought my vehicle back thinking I will take it to better service centre in Chennai. Can you guys please tell me if the argument from service personnel was genuine? and change of oil outside Hyundai will have any impact on warranty?
