Whats the average in-city fuel efficiency one might expect from the U2 CRDI unit in i20?

Thanks.

It depends on the way you drive. My car gives me ~16kmpl in city with 100% ac on. On the highway its above 21kmpl with 100% ac on.

I haven't heard anyone (at least my friends) getting south of 14kmpl on a diesel in city!

Same here joshua. The maximum I've got is 10.5 which I feel is quite less. But now seeing you guys report even less that this my expections going ahead are not that much.

If you haven't done the oil change and second service as yet, (I've heard that things will get better after that) we do have something to look forward to.

This is relevant for people with a Petrol i20.

My 2013 i-gen i20 Petrol gives me 14 kmpl for my daily office commutes in Mumbai. The mix is 75% highway (because I take the Eastern Freeway) and 25% city.

I have the old-gen CRDI i20 that gives me 15+ kmpl in city. its been showing some signs that its due for an injector cleaning/ fuel line check-up; I think i might get a km or so more..

On highways 20 usually, but I had got 22+ a number of times in the past ( usually on undivided highways where you are forced to drive at not more than 80-90 . A light foot on these kind of roads give me good FE.

On fast highway runs with full load (used to be the case earlier.. now have mellowed down with age :-D ) , its used to be between 17-19. Mine is a 5 gear model, I am sure the sixth gear will give a bit more..

The car has done around 56K + and runs well.

I have noticed one thing in my igen i20(P), that even while the fan is off, there is some amount of wind coming from the vents. Has anyone else noticed this?

Hi TB16, yes, I picked up a Igen Asta CRDI about two months back.
I too noticed this and had not seen this in my previous car, ie Ford Fiesta 1.6 Zxi.
The answer is simple, ensure you have the Air Circulation option on. This stops the wind from coming in.

I was told by the service engineer that it's a design feature. Only way to stop it is to switch on the Air recirculation mode.

Has anyone done a re paint for the i20? If yes whats the ODO when you did it? Where from you got it done? And whats the total cost?

One of my friends inquired in FirstChoice and they had quoted 25k for the whole car?? I was really shocked.

Mine is a white i20. Though I do not have an idea to get it painted, I certainly have to repair and paint the roof (has a dent caused by some miscreants in my apartment) I was just giving a thought what if I do a whole body re paint. Car is 4 years old in this December and now clocked 58k kms.

Has anyone been able to install the Door Lock/Unlock Beep sound on the I20. I know by design, there is no sound and only a blinker indication on the car. But i guess it would be useful to have a sound indication to lock/unlock cars even when you cant see it.

Default 2014 i20 - Driver woes

hey guys. my driver has broken the glass of the driver side RVM of my brand new i20. the entire unit is intact with only the glass broken. hyundai said that the entire unit will need to be replaced. it should cost 6-7k excluding paint. Any idea if only the glass can be replaced and can it be done outside. In addition, the jerk also broke the driver side seat belt. Now it does not retract back. To avoid the system beeping all the time, he fastened the seat belt and then sat on the belt due to which the belt clips broke. Hyundai said they will have to replace the entire mechanism. Can this be done outside at a lesser cost.

Thanks

By "glass", I assume you mean the mirror part. So, yes just the mirror can be replaced from any local car spare parts shop. Should not cost you more than 200 bucks.

I had my mirror replaced (of the 1st gen i20) from the authorised dealership a year back. I don't remember exactly but the cost was less than 500 (maybe closer to 250-300)
