Dear All, today I got the delivery of Polar White Elite i20 Asta (O) VTVT with 6 airbags. My first drive was amazing and I love the performance of projector headlamps & DRL's. My sincere thanks to all the forum members for their valuable input which made me to go with Elite. Earlier I had a Santro for 10 years and to be honest, not even a single day it had troubled me. Kudos to Santro.

Got delivery of the Elite i20 Asta (o) petrol 6AB model yesterday. It will be joining my GT TSI and will be primarily used by my dad and wife for city commutes and occasional highways to my native. Was not really favorable towards hyundai before, but pretty impressed with the ride home post delivery. Will take it for a spin on one of my highway trips to explore it more. Promptly subscribing to this thread. Few pictures for now.

Hi, i have a doubt. Recently bought elite i20, the newer one with 6 air bags. The nav system doesnot show the map SD card slot as seen in the previous versions. I'm not sure if it still houses the SD card or have they moved to an in built memory ? Can any new users throw some light.

Doc, can you not pull that button off? Is it like a dummy button there?

Many congratulations, sunildn & drpudhi! So glad to see the Asta(O) variant with 6 airbags becoming a very popular choice!

I hope Hyundai soon replicate this in their models positioned below the i20/Active. I would like the face-lifted Grand i10 & Xcent to come with 6 airbags on their top variants as well. Don't disappoint us, Hyundai!

Hi ganesh. I tried pulling it out but there was a little too much resistance to my comfort. Didn't want to break something on a brand new car. But, surely the older versions had clearly written "SD MAP" over that dummy button which is now missing.

P.S. Hope you are fine in Chennai. Though i'm glad i left chennai for good after so many years (college + work), was a bit disappointed i missed you by a whisker as you moved in just after i left.

Most Hyundais have tie up with 3M and they offer a clear film which keeps the cabin cool. You can also walk into the nearest 3M dealer and get it installed. Quoted me about 15k for all 4 windows + windscreen

Question 5. In my swift and i10 i was told the car already comes with underbody treatment done, do i need to get that done again

Got an underbosy coating done from 3M. Again this can also be done from the dealership if they have a tie up or else from the nearest 3M store. I paid 3.9k for underbody coating with 5 years warranty.

Can anyone please tell me how to change the date and time on the Asta (o) AVN,My AVN is suddenly showing the date and time incorrectly and I couldn't find anything to correct it.

As anyone experienced this before and if so how can it be corrected?

It's happened with my Active a couple of times, it is linked to the GPS and there's no provision for manually setting the date and time.

Yes it does, probably you lost signal for an extended period.

Guys!

Can anyone confirm the actual fuel tank capacity of the i20? And the distance it goes after giving off the fuel warning?

I have at times filled around 41 liters of fuel with it showing 3 bars on the fuel gauge. The tank capacity on the site is 45 liters. Is it excluding the reserve ?

Hyundai has really lost a few points here by skipping the DTE meter. It makes it harder to calculate the efficiency without knowing exactly how much fuel was consumed.

, but I have never managed to fill more than 32L with 3 bars remaining. Thats my reminder to visit the fuel up. You may want to visit another gas pump and crosscheck

Hyundai has really lost a few points here by skipping the DTE meter. It makes it harder to calculate the efficiency without knowing exactly how much fuel was consumed.
I've filled in 50+ liters with the fuel indicator at the last bar & the low fuel light on. I managed to drive 50+ kms easily with the low fuel light on. I admit that it was stupid of me to drive with the low fuel light on, but it was a desperate situation. Demonetization and no electricity post a cyclone can do that to you.

The tank capacity, as you've correctly mentioned, is 45 liters. But it can take 50 liters easily.

Normally, as per my knowledge, thereís no standard for how big the fuel reserve is, but most of the time itís about 10-15 percent of the overall size of the tank. So by that logic, 45L + 10% of 45L is close to 50L.

So yes, I'd say 45L is the capacity without the reserve. and 4-5 L is the reserve capacity.
