Hyundai i20 Variants
Editorial Test Drive Review of Hyundai i20
Hyundai launched the new i-Gen i20 on March 28th 2012. The new car which was designed on the lines of Hyundai’s new ‘Fluidic’ design language replaced the first generation i20 which was being sold in India. 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.The new i20 is loaded as the top-of-the-line Asta (O) which comes packed with all the creature comforts that a modern petrol-head needs. 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.The new i20’s best-in-class wheelbase allows for an airy cabin with ample space for the average urban family.
When it comes to engines, the i20 has two 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 as well as your right foot and you will be greeted with a very refined four-pot orchestra emanating of course from the engine bay.The other petrol is the 1.4litre Gamma with 4-speed automatic transmission which gives 100 bhp.
The i-Gen i20 with its 1200 cc petrol engine would do 16.1 kmpl as per ARAI specifications, although in real world condition this is expected to drop by at least 5 kmpl. The car should return a mileage of 11 kmpl depending upon individual driving styles. The diesel with 1.4l CRDI gives a mileag of 20 kmpl combined.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 i20 prices start at Rs 4.7 lakh for base petrol to Rs 7.7 lakh for top end petrol. The diesel variant start at rs 6 lakh to Rs 7 lakh for the top diesel. The i20 is an spacious and refined small car. For a detailed review of the i20 read below.
Pros: Good looks, Spacious interiors, Fantastic equipment list, Refined engine, Available as an automatic also
Cons: Light steering, Lacks handling, Automatic only with petrol, Stiff asking price, Not as exciting as rivals
Hyundai i20 Interiors
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.

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.
Hyundai i20 Exteriors Details
Hyundai i20 Front design
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.
Hyundai i20 Rear design
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.
Hyundai i20 Side profile
There has been no major changes at the side except the chrome in the door handles.
Hyundai i20 Ground Clearance
The ground clearance of 165 mm makes the i20 a comfortable ride for the Indian roads.

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.

Hyundai i20 Handling Braking & Safety
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.
Hyundai i20 Handling, Braking & Safety Details
Hyundai i20 Handling
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.
Hyundai i20 Braking performance
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.
Hyundai i20 Safety features
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.
Hyundai i20 ABS

Hyundai i20 Traction control
i20 has no traction control for the car.
Hyundai i20 Comfort & Suspension
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.
Hyundai i20 Comfort & Suspension Details
Hyundai i20 Comfort
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

This car is super awesome in looks........ Its like i cannot drive any other car now, because no other car of this range is as stunning and smooth functioning like this car. Fuel efficiency is a slight problem though. I simply love this car.........!

Pros Good Performance,Comfort,spacious
Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,
The car is great Value for money.it has decent interiors with enough space to comfortably accommodate six people inclusive of the driver. The mileage i am getting is at 16 kpl in the city but I did expect it to be around 18.I guess the mileague that manufacturers claim under ideal driving conditions is out of the question on Indian roads where the conditions are far from ideal. This diesel car does lack power which is quite noticeable while driving on hilly terrain. I wish the car had more power and was heavier as well. Plenty of trunk space available for luggage.this diesel engine does not roar and in fact is actually quite smooth.Overall I am happy with this premium hatch back being my first car.

Pros stylish, premium hatchback
Cons not build for an aam aadmi
i t is a good car but if the prices would be some less then it would be an unbeatable car overall a good car
