How is the steering response via-a-vis with the Fiesta? In detail if you can.

Nice choice of wheels. 5 spokes make for my favourite design. Your car looks very classy.

I don't think there is any scope for comparison. The Fiesta has amongst the best hydraulic units in the sub 10 lakh segment, and the i20 the most lifeless. The i20s PS is better only within the city (light + effortless).

i have both - the i20 crdi and the petrol fiesta --- and let me tell you in plain bhhasha(language) -- the PS of Fiesta is the heaviest in the segment and feels tough whereas that of i20 is the lightest of all PSs and feels incredibly light. Both are as different as chalk and cheese and at the opposite ends of the PS spectrum. Light feel of i20 PS is a joy in the city whereas Fiesta PS feels confident at high speeds(i.e. on highways) due to the heavy feel (what is called the "feedback" from the steering.
Just cannot compare the two.
If i drive the 20 for a week , it takes another week to get adjusted back to that of the fiesta !

Hi Khanna,
I must say the Roof rail and your Plati alloys looks good.

May be the pics are not doing much justice to either. But both looks to be in sink with the car as if it came standard

Any more upgrades done in 2011? How is the car doing?

Default Re: My new i20 CRDI 1.4 Crystal white Magna

thanks friend ,
i really haven't done anything for my poor car in a looong time !!.
it still drives like a dream (among "small" cars), overtaking is pure joy, it never fails you in overtaking !! it still is as silent as before (despite being driver driven and wife driven (DOUBLE WHAMMY for the poor guy !!). All features and functions are working well with no major breakdowns or issues. I had initial issues with the AC ( many initial I20 owners had , but then it got better with some repairs etc. But still not the best in class, in fact it is the bad part !).
What really gets my goat is the expensive servicing. Regular service costs ~5500 RS + everytime there is an additional kharcha of ~5000 RS more( avg 10000 each service-6 monthly = > 1600 rs per month maintenance !!). Just today i got it serviced ( ~9400 rs) and now they say the clutch assembly needs repairs costing 25000 RS !!!!!. They say it's because Diesel clutches get worn out earlier and are heavier and more expensive , is it ???. Makes me wonder if Diesel is really worth the difference with petrol( avg driving daily ~50 Km).
