i20 diesel?

Must be having our national engine 1.3 MJD.

As Gets CRDI is 1.5 lacs costlier than the petrol getz, lets imagine i20 will be costliers by more than 2 lacs than the petrol counterpart.

If this has to sell the difference in price should not be more than 1 lakh or we would hear another saga called getz diesel being repeated.I am surprised regarding this move by hyundai as MSIL petrol and diesel models have hardly arround 90k difference in price.Would variable geometry turbine cost 70 more than the normal one.

The export version of i20 CRDI has a 1396cc engine which gives 89bhp@4000rpm. Since this is eligible for the duty cut they will mostly launch the same engine here.

Magazine reports suggest it is an all new 1.4 CRDI delivering 74 BHP. European versions will be tuned to deliver 82 BHP. Hyundai is taking the fun out of diesels and are going the mileage way.

Default Hyundai may shift i20 production on labour unrest

Production at Hyundai Motors' Sriperumbudur factory has been hit due to a recurring labour unrest, forcing the company to consider

shifting the manufacturing of the export-focussed i20 premium compact to a European country, taking away the exclusivity tag from the brand.

While representatives of the labour union claimed that production at the company's two plants within the factory premises, that churn out around 1000 units daily, had been crippled due to the stir, the management claimed that there was a "marginal" impact.

"The production loss due to the strike has been marginal, and we have enough stocks to meet any shortfall," Arvind Saxena, V-P at Hyundai Motor India, said. "We are contemplating shifting the production of i20 to a European country, labour unrest being one of the reasons for this. If the situation persists, we will have no option but to readjust production plans for the model," Saxena added.

Infrastructure problems, currency fluctuations and low export incentives are also believed to be among reasons for part-shifting of i20 production. Industry analysts said the company was considering alternative production site for i20 to maintain timely delivery schedules, a crucial factor in export markets.

im eagerly waiting for 1.4 ltr petrol engine in i20 as the current kapaa 1.2 is underpowered for a car the size of i20!

i dont mind paying 25,000-50,000 rs extra for that engine and performance!

[quote=varun.ppl;1289574]Just saw this on the economictimes.com. That Hyundai is planning to launch i20 diesel by the end of this year.

great news i think with the diesel engine the i20 would get a lot of potential new customers.

Everyone here knows how the Getz CRDI was priced. So don't be too optimistic about I20 diesel. It is mostly coming with a 1.4 litre 70 bhp engine to satisfy the FE hungry customers and the OTR will cross 7 lakhs for sure

The Getz 1.5 CRDi @5.7 laks is 1.2 lak more than 1.3 GVS. So if the 1.4 I20 diesel is launched, it will not command a premium of more than a lak than the ex-showroom price of I20 Magna 1.2. It should be 5.03 +1 lak @ 6 laks, which isnt bad (not cheap either) considering the Swift Vdi price of 5.37. Dosen't the I20 offer substantially more than the Swift in terms of a hatch.

All prices are ex-showroom Bombay.

Well, I took test drive of i20 petrol last week and the salesman mentioned that Hyundai would be releasing i20 Diesel 1.4 in a month or so. That would sure make B+ segment competition hotter, right?

Hi Guys,

I had been to Modi Hyundai in Thane asking for the GETZ CRDDI, there the sales rep has confirmed the news about i20 CXRDI. IT will be the same motor of 1.4. Also the car should be out next month and hence they are currently providing discounts on Getz to sell off all their stock. I am not able to decide though - should I wait and check the i20 CRDi or buy the Getz CRDi.

[quote=varun.ppl;1289625]I guess, the Indian mentality is changing(gradually). If we can accommodate for a 7 lakh Jazz then why not an i20.

Who said we are accommodating 7 lakh Jazz? Wait for the newness of Jazz to wear off and then you can watch it join the ranks of Fabia, Fusion, Getz. i20 will also go this way. Our market is not ready for 7 lakh hatches. More so, when we have stunning looking diesel hatches like Swift, Vista and now Punto. People may pay 8/9 lakhs for a Honda sedan but not for Jazz. Jazz singer will sing his swan song soon.
