Expert Test Review
The top-of-the-line Asta (O) which comes packed with all the creature comforts that a modern petrol-head needs. Since, we are on this topic, let me give you a low down on features list. The model we tested had ABS with EBD, EPS, electric ORVMs with turn-signals and power windows all around. Six air bags included the curtain air bags on the driver and co-driver’s side. A digital read out on the dashboard and in the instrument cluster, a fully-automatic climate control system and in-car-entertainment with USB, i-pod connectivity. There is a rear view camera as well.The new i20’s best-in-class wheelbase allows for an airy cabin with ample space for the average urban family. The seats get new fabric in a dark shade of brown which go well with the darker two-tone dashboard.
i20 is one of the most spacious hatchback models in the Indian market it has about 370litres of boot space.
The new dials and the digital fuel and temperature gauges between them look really smart.
Hyundai has re-introduced that nasty, shiny chrome gearlever that looks really cheap.
i20 has cup holders both at the front as well as at the rear of the car.
i20 has a spacious glovebox attached to the front dashboard.
an audio system and USB and Aux-in ports is available in the i20.
i20 has Fully Automatic Temperature Control (FATC) system
i20 has arm rest both at the front and at the back.
i20 ha well fitted air vents at the front dashboard.

The shoulder space is also quite sufficient for 3persons sitting at the rear of the car.

i20 has power window optioning the car.

Driver information display
The driver information display has nothing special in it although its digitalised and looks great. It has few regular warning lamps that's all.
The exterior dimensions of the car are similar to the outgoing model. The fluidic family design from Hyundai has given the car a fresh new look, doing away with the more dated design of the old version. With the i20, most of the Hyundai cars available in India now have the corporate fluidic look. That said, the i20 does look familiar from the sides as well as the rear. Move towards the rear end and the tail lamps have got new reflective elements whereas the actual shape of the lamps remains the same. The rear bumper is new and the front one gets triangular fog lamps on the top-end variant.
Enough has been done, at least to the snub nose, to make the i20 look refreshingly new. Those blistered headlamps, for example, give it a very Volkswagen Scirocco-like look and the slim grille, deep front bumper and muscular chin all work well in making the i20 look even more attractive than before.
The rear too has hardly changed with just new tail lamps, a slight re-profiling of the bumper and a new spoiler to indicate this is version two.
There has been no major changes at the side except the chrome in the door handles.
The ground clearance of 165 mm makes the i20 a comfortable ride for the Indian roads.
i20 has body coloured bumpers.
i20 has blistered headlamps but provides good illumination at the dark.
i20 has been fitted with new tail lamps.

i20 is available in Black Silky silver Silky Beige Sparkle Blue, Berry Red Dark Gray Metallic
There is an option of rear wiper in the car.
There is no roof rail available in the i20.

Now, the i20 has three engine options, the petrol is a 1.2 litre Kappa petrol engine under its bonnet. The in-line 4-cylinder engine with Dual VTVT puts out 82 bhp of maximum power, for which you need to rev the engine to 6000 rpm while 113 Nm of torque tops out at 4000 rpm. Being a petrol engine, you do need to rev it up as it lacks low-end grunt. That said, work the smooth shifting 5-speed manual gearbox and you will be rewarded. TheThe other petrol is the 1.4litre Gamma with 4-speed automatic transmission which gives 100 bhp. This one is more powerful obviously but the automatic saps power a bit. The diesel is a 1.4 CRDi which makes 90 bhp. This one has lots of torque and enough performance, it is easy to drive in city and you do not have to constantly shift gears.

As far as handling is concerned, the i-Gen i20 isn’t the best car to throw around corners at a high rate of speed. The car does suffer from quite a lot of body roll, courtesy of the softly sprung suspension setup. The tyres don’t help much when you try to be a bit aggressive with the car. Basically, this car wants to be driven sensibly and that is what those living in crowded cities would do most of the time. Like other Hyundai cars, it is well loaded with lots of safety features like six airbags including driver airbag, side & curtain airbag. It has also ABS with EBD.
Handling Braking & Safety Details
Feeling of refinement is the re-tuned suspension. Gone is the old cars low-speed clunking over irregularities and this suspension is far more sophisticated in the way it tackles bumps in the city. Thats not saying Hyundai has got it fully sorted out though. Go faster and its obvious that the car has lost some of its high-speed manners. It feels terribly sloppy if and when you have to change lanes quickly and the steering wheel feels like it just might be connected to the front wheels.
I20 uses ventilated discs in the front and drums at the rear the braking performance of the i20 is good.i20 stops from 80-0 Kmph 27.09m in 2.37sec.
The major safety features of the i20 include ABS (Anti Lock Braking System) with EBD, PAB (Passenger Airbag) onoff switch, multiple airbags and many more.
i20 has an option for ABS in the car.
i20 has no traction control for the car.
Macpherson struts adorn the front while gas-filled shocks at the rear give the car a more pliant ride.Now, Hyundai has always concentrated on giving its customers a better ride which in the city comes as a boon.The electric power steering is well weighted and perfect for driving around tight spaces. The turning radius too is pretty decent. The i20 soaks up bumps pretty well and is also refined and well insulated.
Comfort & Suspension Details
The rebirth of the i20 is sure to re-define the mid-segment luxury level. With features like Rear Parking Camera with display in the cabin, Supervision Cluster, Fully Automatic Temperature Control, Clean Air-Cluster ionizer for fresh air in the cabin, it proves to bring in a new wave in the A2 segment. The smart key with push button start adds to the features of the car. It is also loaded with premium features like Multi Information Display, 2-DIN CDMP3 Audio System with 4 speakers and 2 twee
i20 uses Independent, MacPherson struts at the front which helps it to overcome almost any potholes on the road.
