Can you please clarify whether you are feeling excess vibration through gear lever, pedal etc ?
Don't know about jazz but i have driven my friends ivtec city and the cars engine refinement is on par if not better.
suggest you to get the car checked.
The car has gone for it's first service today and the problem has been notified to the Service center. The vibration is felt in the entire car, not specifically on the gear lever and pedal. It's hard to point out where exactly, but it's more pronounced on the steering and the it can also be felt if your palm is placed on the passenger side airbag area. I could be nitpicking here, but it definitely doesn't feel "smooth" like the ivtec engines! It's one of those things where you know something's not right. Any ideas on what could be causing these vibrations?

I am considering buying the i20 Asta. The dealer claims that the mileage is ~ 15 in city driving. I suspect is closer to ~12. How much does your i20 manage in city traffic?

I used to have an i20 petrol (older model) used to get 10 with AC in the ctiy and nearly twice that on highways.

the car has been returning approx 11.7 kmpl in Delhi's traffic with 100 % AC usage. i expect the mileage to settle at 12.5 kmpl after second service, when 1st oil change would be done apart from other basic adjustments. 1st service at 1500 kms is just basic check up. a friend of mine is also getting approx 12 kmpl in city driving.
what i have noticed recently is that the temp setting of the Auto AC does affect the mileage. During summers, july-aug i use to set the temp at 18c always. the mileage improved slightly after i started setting it at 21 c. this allows the compressor to cut more often.
winters being around the corner mileage should improve
the best mileage delivered was on yamuna expressway where the car returned 18.3 kmpl AC on, with speedo at 100kmph through out.

Me I am getting about 11.5 kmpl on my Asta CRDi, well I have just done 700 odd km on the system though. I am sure it is bound to get better.

Im sorry I couldnt find it anywhere on the left, the dashboard part just before hinges, the floor, under the glove box, under that small small sticker on the left side of dashboard I cannot find it. Can someone please post a image. Or maybe I will post mine because I am sure I am missing something here.

PS: Yes I am driving a ASTA CRDi 2102 facelift.

Guys, I think the new fog lamps with LED DRLs are available now. I happened to cross an i20 yesterday at a junction which had really bright L shaped LEDs on the periphery of fog lamps. I just had a split second look but felt they were rather very well integrated with the fog lamps and assumed that maybe its an after market product for entire fog lamp assembly specially for i20. Might just be an orig Hyundai part. If i20 gets it, then i would think Verna should be getting one too.

I like the DRls integrated into the front fogs, like the ones shown in the photo below.

My only wish is that Hyundai should make cars that handle better.

Could not agree more. Its all about features in their cars. In the past, i have owned i10 and Verna (D), and the road manners on both are simply not upto the mark. Ofcourse, great VFM.

Yea I saw the same thing. Looks neat and the LEDs are very bright as well. Good job by Hyundai in making there products so feature rich.

I agree with your comment about handling but I think Hyundai's focus is more on the masses and in my opinion Hyundai cars will satisfy 90% of the people in terms of comfort and ride. Rest like us can go look elsewhere .

Saw a car in flesh with the new LEDs going through the Fogs. In my opinion those are like into your eyes. I mean quite big and bold. Dont really gel well with the overall look. I would prefer the i20 without those LEDs. Just my opinion though.

I am seeing a mileage between 12-13kmpl on my i20 CRDI (which has done around 2200 kms). This is entirely in city with a/c on 100% of the time. First service is already done.

Is this the kind of mileage expected from i20 CRDI initially? Or maybe I need to change my driving style?

Thanks,
Kiran

13kmpl (+-0.5 km) is what the i20 Crdi will do in the city (B2B) with 100% ac. I have 2009 I20 Crdi with close to 38K on the odo and I get about 14kmpl in city with 100% AC. Half of that distance is in bumper to bumper traffic and the other half is on relatively mild traffic conditions.

You are getting what you should but then again I am not sure of your driving style. I know someone churning out 15kmpl and he is a terribly sedate driver who runs in 1700 to 2000 rpm and doesnt do clutch driving and prefers engine braking with a blend of ascending paddle brakes and uses the same fuel station with everytime tyre pressure checks. On major junctions switches off the car's engine. I was like dude how on hell you can keep all these incheck he was like love your like your neighbor's wife and you'll see the change :P

Exclamation re: 1st-gen Hyundai i20 (2008 - 2014) : Review

My brother checked out i20 sportz diesel yesterday and the sales rep mentioned that we can order sportz diesel with an automatic trans .

Is anyone aware of this new variant?
