Thumbs up The Uber Cool Hyundai i20 - She's here!

Hi All,

After much debate over choosing my first car, my first two contenders were i10 and Beat, which soon lost out to the i20. Yes, it was way out of my budget, but when I sat in the car for a test drive, I knew this was it and my search had ended.

To confirm my choice, I logged on to Team BHP to search for ownership reviews and was delighted to find highly positive feedback about the car. Special thanks to Mubeen for posting such well written reviews right from the buying experience to the 4000 km update.

I booked it through Blue Hyundai on Mysore Road. I must commend their quality of interaction and customer service. A very amicable team! .I love the finish of the car inside out. The little chrome touches given to the gear shift and door handles look sleek. The dashboard is super cool with a humongous, cooled glove box. The sheer ergonomics of the car is amazing. My husband is 6'3" and fits quite comfortably in the back seat! Kudos to a spacious hatchback. I took my family of 5 out and we had a nice , comfortable drive.

Although I must say, after driving the Palio 1.9 Diesel + The Chevy Optra Magnum Diesel , I do feel the need for a little more power, but the Lady-i20 is zippy and conducts herself very well in heavy traffic. Gear shift feels like butter & I could possibly operate the steering with a finger (just kidding). Switching from Petrol to Diesel is growing on me! (But certainly not the petrol prices!)

Got the delivery on Jan 7,2011. I now own a spanking new i20 Sportz (1.2 Petrol) in Silky Beige with the following accessories added in:

(1) Basic reverse parking sensor (Since itís basic, the sensors have been fitted only on left and right hand sides)

(2) Sunflim on passenger doors AND windscreen. I would highly recommend the windscreen film. It really does keep the cabin cooler, even if it's parked out in the sun. We all know how painfully hot it can get.It cost me Rs.4,300 but it's totally worth it.

(3) Alloy wheels

(4) Alternate horn. The factory fitted horn is just too soft for heavy traffic driving.

Here are few pictures.

Cheers.

Congratulation on the new car, I20 is a fabulous hatch and you would love it everyday.

Were you able to get some discounts on this model?? Also please mention the OTR price.

O.T. - "Happiness reloaded.." sticker in the rear, was it from the dealer or you have pasted it??

Congratulation! The car looks cool . Please tell me about luggability of i20. I mean will the car be able to pull uphill with 5 people at 20Km/s speed (maybe in second gear)? I need to know as I am frequent traveller to hilly regions and the luggability is important.

Hello Lady-i20
Welcome to TBHP and many congratulations on your new drive. Good alloys and classy colour. Wishing you and your family unlimited safe and happy miles with the i20.

So is this a replacement car? Or addition to your Palio and Optra Diesels?

Congrats on your purchase. I suppose Bluse Hyundai, has come uprecently in Bangalore. Nice choice of color.

One thing intrigued me however. Didnt you like the stock alloys (AFAIK, spotz version comes with them factory fitted). The Neo aftermarket ones, look good however.

Happy mile crunching.

A TRUE BHPian seems emerging within, are you now thinking of switching from Petrol to Diesel?
