Turbo lag was very less with a very linear power delivery and then a sudden rush @ 1900 rpm.

No, i couldn't find the exact pricing and variants info.
As per my source, the ASTA with (O) pack which i drove should come upto 7.3 lacs on road.

i20 is better than Getz in all terms other than the raw power, space(rear seat) and steering.

It wasn't a very long drive so can't comment on the handling of i20.

Its still faster than most hatchbacks available at the moment. But u won't feel the rush sitting inside. Its like driving a SX4 after owning a Baleno/OHC, the driver doesn't get direct feedback from the engine.

i20 all the way. Better quality, better engine and of course better A.S.S.
Hyundai has never disappointed us with CRDis in terms of power. Every new CRDi has been better than their previous.
They don't have best diesel engines but they surely do provide us with the best USE + ENJOY(RIP) + THROW (50k kms) engines.

The red TD Punto with those mesmerizing looks caught me drooling for couple of minutes and even the gadgets/controls inside got me hooked. After all this, the drive was just pathetic. In 2nd gear i reach 3500rpm and i'm like, Did i miss the turbo kick ? Slot the 3rd, try the same, again no turbo kick. I turn around ask the salesman, Is this diesel or petrol ? He replies, SIR, Its a diesel...I'm amused and i continue driving.

Stock wheels were even worse which can't take half of the torque that this gear box can put down.

Wow! That's a scary statement. Could you please clarify. Does this mean that the longevity of the Hyundai CRDi isn't that great? Throw at 50K kms

Though I just adore the Punto, considering that the I20 CRDi is going to be out pretty soon, I still feel I should wait and check it out also. But that statement really worries me.

KP has turned into this complete CRDI specialist test pilot :P . Great catch kp and 90bhp is good hope it is priced competitively and the handling is good too though i feel i would opt for the getzi for its raw power.

Cheers/Shyam

OT:
Seems like the days of Naturally aspirated petrol engines are over.
Its time for companies to bring in direct injection turbo charged petrol engines

but as far as performance diesel in concerned, CRDi is leading the way.

@ kp. when jk told me that you'd gotten his hands on another CRDi , I was like , how many CRDi's does the man need, he already has 2!

Then he said it was just a test drive and it was the i20

only Porsche have the technology for a turbo charged petrol engine. For petrol engines, the temperature of the gas exhaust is soo high that its almost impossible to fit a turbo.

Doesn't Fiat already have the FIRE 1.4L TurboJet petrol engine producing 120bhp?
Its there on the GP/Linea in international markets.

A bit off topic though but,
recently BMW launched direct injection turbo charged petrol engines.
and about Turbo charged petrol,
I am sure you would have heard about a company called Subaru.
BTW, they also recently launched world's first horizontally opposed turbo charged CRDi diesel engine, they call it boxer diesel
