Hyundai i20 – indeed a premium hatchback that is worth its price

Pros : Super stylish interiors and exteriors, upgraded kappa engine, safety features

Cons : Summer Air-conditioners performance, no automatic transmission, pricey

I owe an i20 Asta 1.2L petrol variant now and have previously owned Wagon R. Though I am not brand conscious or biased about any car, I think that my i20 Asta 1.2L leaves an impression on one and all. The car flaunts big headlights, the curves and lines, new shape tail lamp and a completely new 1197cc, 1.2L Kappa engine with less noise and vibration levels. Apart from this, the top mileage I am getting is of 11-13 in city traffic (sparingly used A/C). Its “Light Steering” (EPS) is perfect for city traffic and the ground clearance is also not an issue either.

It comes with many more goodies. The dashboard is upgraded, looks broad and the console is attractive. It is also quite spacious and the seats are comfortable. Its solid build gives the feeling that it will last long with me and then there are all the vital safety features also. There is ABS with EBD, effective braking, dual front/side/curtain airbags.

Disappointingly, Hyundai has not provided this premium hatchback with DTE (Distance To Empty), Vanity Mirror etc. Even the rear legroom is also not much.

The Hyundai i20 Asta is an ambitious model and for all the privileges it offer, the price of around 6.2 lacs seems to be worth considering for what it offers.

Hello All, Its been almost 2.5 years experience with i20 ASTA Petrol version. Here is the simple summary about i20. 1. Driver Seat comfort is very good. I have test driven many cars I find i20 most comfortable. 2. EPS is very smooth. Way ahead of anybody in the race. 3. Gear shifting is again very smooth Way ahead of anybody in the race. No fatigue even after driving 250 kms at a stretch. 4. Quality of plastic is better. 5. Interior looks are really good and dashboard is awesome. 6. Mileage 10.5-12 kmpl in Pune city Traffic. Highway it goes around 18-20kmpl. (NH-4, NH-17 Driving exp) 7. Rear sit comfort not good at all. Blame car structure for that. But again this car was never meant for indian roads and the kind of speed bumpers we have in Pune. 8. Maintenance cost is on bit higher side. Consider Rs 900-1200/- per month if you take your car for company showroom servicing 2 times in a year. 9. I am proud owner considering overall qualities of this car
