Elite i20 OTR in Bangalore for Asta Petrol is Rs 8.48 L and Asta diesel comes to Rs 9.92 L approximately. This comes in effect post excise duty cut. Earlier it was Rs 8.06 L and Rs 9.48 L for petrol and diesel respectively. Expecting Jazz and YRA to be priced close to this with a difference of plus or minus Rs 10,000 to 20,000.

Congrats for your new car. Dealers will get a percentage of commission from the Insurance service provider and so it will be difficult for you to get your money back. Make sure 'Nil Depreciation' mentioned if you had opted for zero depreciation. Luckily, you safed a huge money by getting the car in December itself.

Holy moly! Banglore taxes are way too much. Asta P costs 7.8x on road in Pune. That's a difference of almost 50k INR.

Yes it is better that you take this outside. Although, the amount quoted by them is about 5k more than what is given by HMP here. For 20K you can get 0% depreciation insurance with other add-ons outside.

Even I was given about 10K as handling & logistics charges. Gave the Sales consultant a heart attack by asking if I could save on this 10K by getting the car from the factory in Sriperumbudur myself . Obviously he refused.

I'm not aware of any tracking mechanism by which we can check our booking status. And yes people will surely try and pull strings in the dealership and try jump the queue, suggest you try and pressurize the consultant to get your car sooner.

Drive safe.

I have been researching for the i20 since more than a month now and have finally decided to plonk my money on it. However the biggest challenge I am facing is the varied delivery time periods being quoted by different dealers. The variance is ranging from 1.5 months told by Global Gallery on one hand to 4 months being told by Shreenath Hyundai.
In fact 2 dealerships of Shreenath Hyundai are quoting different waiting periods. The Ghatkopar branch quoted 4 months whilst the Andheri branch quoted 3 months!
The Global SA is ready to give it to me in writing that he will deliver the car in a period of 1.5 months max.

This has left me completely confused as to whom to trust and rely on. What if Global guys don't keep on the commitment and deliver the car later than the promised 1,5 months. I doubt if if I have any remedy against them.

Can Mumbai TBHPians help me out here. If you have had an experience with either of the showrooms please let me know. Thanks in advance to one and all who reply!

Hi,
Congrats on your choice of car. I too have decided on the i20 and will be taking delivery of the car within a weeks time. I had made my booking on Dec 27th and wanted a 2015 model.

With regards to the varied waiting times, I believe that the standard response to it is 4 months. This I think is because they want to follow the under-promise, over-deliver principles. Hence some of the dealers are playing it safe whilst some give you a more realistic timeline.

I feel that the demand for the car would stabilize in the coming months and 1 and half months waiting time seems more realistic and actually deliverable. 4 months is just too much. If the SA at Global Gallery, is willing to deliver it in that time frame I would suggest you go for it by paying the minimum booking amount of 10K. Either way if you are decided on the car then it makes more sense to make your booking at the dealership that promises to deliver sooner, since atleast this way you can hold them to their promise.

Drive safe.

RTO Stuff : 63622

I am going to ask the dealer for my Booking ID, is there any way I can keep a track of it? I have a feeling that people with connections are going to pull strings and get their work done and I might keep getting pushed to the end of the queue.

Thanks.

Congrats Saket on your booking
I have also booked an Elite i20 (P) Asta on December 27 @ Sanjay Hyundai, Pune. From which dealer have you done the booking?
My SA called me last week informing me about the hike in the price of the car due to withdrawal of the excise duty cut. He mentioned that there is a 3 month waiting time period but he said they keep a buffer of a few weeks and give expected delivery time to look good in the eyes of the customer when they deliver before time.
What is the "Registration Number Place" component you have mentioned?
Also do you have an idea on the breakdown of the RTO charges they have mentioned? I am trying to find out what % of the ex-showroom price is the RTO charges.
I am also trying to find out if there is a way to track the car booking. I had asked my SA if I can track it online but he refused. Doesn't Hyundai provide an online tracking of the car with the expected delivery times? They should do that in this age of technology and that would make life simpler and hassle free instead of being at the mercy of the dealers.

I am also not aware of the break up of the RTO charges, but I think must be including the registration copy(the dealer told me that they have some problem with the smart card thing, so they are again rolling out registration copies like old times).

Also, I think once the dealer gets the chasis number, they also get VIN from Hyundai which can then be used to track using HMIL website.

The place of registration for my vehicle is PMC.

They have mentioned 4-5 months on my order form, also when I asked the dealer about the average number of I20's that he gets from Hyundai every month, he said they get something around 30 to 35 per month. That is quite low IMHO.

My Asta Petrol has just completed 10k in close to 4 months and due for second service during this weekend. Will post the ODO reading snapshot soon.

Experience so far: Awesome

I have a strange rattling noise that comes in a while during driving and still can't figure out from where. Will have to get it checked.

Hi ssengo, can you let us know what mileage you have been getting now, after running 10K kilometers?
Also where did you get your car? Hyundai Motor Plaza?

Drive safe.

I haven't tried it on terrain yet. I usually downshift gear based on the speed and very rarely felt loss of power.

I did come across a weird issue when i parked the vehicle after a 550 km drive in my garage and in next 10 minutes came back to start the car for some reason and found there was absolutely no power in the steering and very hard to turn the wheels and the temperature control was absolutely zero.

After an hour left the vehicle to idle and then turned on the car and everything came back alright. This is something strange that i noticed in my 10k drive so far but experienced this only once.

Overall experience is too good and feel proud to own it
