And in tight parking space, there is barely any space to accommodate the creep distance.

I do not feel comfortable using the handbrake while car is still in gear (reverse or 1st) as the car is plastered with warning note on NOT to use brakes while switching gears.

Maybe this is a mental block/muscle memory thing after having driven/thrashed an MT all these years.

Any inputs would be appreciated.
I use the brakes directly to keep it steady from creeping back and forward in reverse and 1st gear respectively. Dont use the handbrake. The IMT system is designed to detect the application of brakes while in gear and thus prevent from clutch wear but not with handbrake. The system is not designed to detect the handbrake with gear. If you use the foot brake while in 1st and reverse gear is also linked to the hill hold feature which will be activated when brake is pressed fully for 2 - 3 seconds.

The sticker you are talking about is actually more sort like while the car is on the go. For example, assume you are driving in 2nd gear and then you want to shift to 3rd, newbies to the transmission will think or unconsciously hit the brake to shift, that should be avoided. That will damage the transmission. Same thing while slowing down also when in gear deceleration is applied. Apart from that you are good to go. Hope this helps.

Re: Hyundai i20 N Line Review

There was an N Line owner's meet in Bangalore held earlier this month. Sharing a few pics from the short meet taken by dhaneesh.shankar

Re: Hyundai i20 N Line Review

I test drove the i20 N line this morning and was impressed with the power delivery and the handling characteristics of the car. In early 2018 I had bought a Polo GT (DSG) and sold it back in 2019, now I've been seriously missing the driving fun of the Polo and hence considered to get the N Line purely for its fun driving and power.

If anybody could apprise if they have remapped the N Line? Any considerable increase to the power/torque?
Thanks.

Actually these guys already have this combination in their line-up.
The Hyundai Venue, SX & SX(O) variant, is available in the 1.0 TGDi engine + Manual Gearbox combination. For this to be introduced in the i20 model-line, I guess it needs ARAI certification.

Opt for 205mm if the alloy width is 6.5J else it is better to stick with 195mm from cost point of view.
Yes sir , it absolutely works with 205/55, I use pst 205/50.
Iím not sure if they have 195/55 pst but they do have primacy 4. Just a bit of a suggestion from my end, do consider upsizing if you are changing tires, the asthetic look itself is pleasing.

Re: Hyundai i20 N Line Review

I recently checked out the N-Line and was mighty impressed with its driving dynamics and the overall looks of the cars - red inserts are tastefully done.

However, one sore thing which sticks out the most is the rear wheel cladding, or the lack of!

Road noise + exposed wires.. wouldn't the exposed rear brake line as highlighted below be at risk of getting cut by vandals and pose a serious safety concern? Both my current cars(Polo and Fabia) come with a full rear wheel cladding.

For a hatchback costing over 14L on road Mumbai, blatant cost cutting of this magnitude does not sit well with me and has drove me away for what was otherwise an extremely potent alternative to my ageing Fabia. I hope Hyundai adds this 'feature' in future iterations of the car.

Re: Hyundai i20 N Line Review

Thoroughly enjoying the new set of wheels. Still completing the running in - did 2 drives recently. Mumbai - Shirdi and Mumbai - Kolad.
  • Car is a head-turner. I guess it's the brilliant flashy Blue color with tastefully done Red accents and the twin exhausts at the rear. I noticed people actually walking upto the car and talking about the exhaust while we were having breakfast on Mumbai Goa highway
  • In built navigation and maps are quite decent and I even found the turn by turn navigation audio instructions are more detailed than Google Maps. Whereas you'll need Google maps to find very remote places and small hotels etc. So Google Maps are used only when required.
  • Still getting used to to the over sensitive brakes which sometimes makes the passengers feel a sudden jerk. I don't know if it's just me or others have experienced the same thing.
  • Finding power window switches/OVRM switches on driver side door in dark is a pain. Why no backlit switches Hyundai?
  • Sport mode + Paddle shifters = Super fun! Ear to ear grin guaranteed.
  • Encountered some really bad speed-breakers in both these journeys but did not face any issue with ground clearance.

Sharing a few pictures shot during the Sunday morning drive

HA! So itís not just me!! , my search is continuing for a tiny white light that I can attach to the right side.

Iíll get my baby back today, getting a 360 DHC camera installed. Got my first scratch over the weekend and I couldnít sleep for a day. Bumper to bumper traffic, was just still on the road and someone decides to get a bit too close on his scooter. Didnít even stop to say sorry but it is what it is, thankfully itís limited and will cost 2.9k after tax for fixing.

The camera comes in around 30k. Honestly Iíve just been addicted to how good the car feels in my hand, which is lovely for the heart but a stab on my wallet.

And Iím low-key enjoying the compliments 😅 the wide tires especially get a few questions from other enthusiasts..

Do update your experience, if possible. Primarily I want to know if the display comes in the default 10.2 screen or not.

And what is a good dashcam for the car?

Alright .. so Iíve been using it for the last few days.
PRO:
1. Itís clearer than the default rear cam
2. No more blind spots, itís really clear to define the sides.
3. Since I got it installed from Hyundai, I didnít have to change the Console. They have the coupler required to install dhc into the current console.

Con:
1. The line system that you see in the default rear cam is missing (yellow/red) itís just two parallel green lines , itís cleaner but I kinda grew into that grid type look.
2. First start, the cam takes 3-5 seconds to engage where as the default one was quicker. This is fine but worried me a bit initially.


Damages 30k. Locally I was quoted 27k but they would need to change the console which was a no go from me.


Regarding the console, I do have a query if someone knows this. While Iím driving sometimes I press the phone button on the steering and call someone after the call, I canít revert to the Home Screen from the steering. Is there a way to achieve that ? I always need to go to the console and touch home.

Re: Hyundai i20 N Line Review

I really love the package of this car. The only thing I wish they added is the 60:40 split seats.

Re: Hyundai i20 N Line Review

Got the N Line N8 DCT delivered home yesterday in red/black. It looks surprisingly good in this colour combo. Went today and changed tyres to Michelin Pilot Sport with 205/50R16. Car feels even better with the tyres. Followed Icestrok's advice on the tire upsize. It's a lower margin of error, -1.2 percent vs having 205/55 which is +2%. And ride seems better. I don't think break in matter for modern cars. Maybe back in the day. But yeah, initial 1200km maybe prudent to back off the revolutions a bit. The exhaust system could use an upgrade, bit quiet. Also, the issue with back lit lights for the windows and other buttons would have been great. That's a big miss. Atleast we should get the option to pay extra and get it.

I think you can program the star key to go back to home.

My dealership has no idea about a 3d camera. Perhaps some pics and which camera you installed etc can help?
