Editorial Test Drive Review of Hyundai i20 Diesel


Hyundai i20 Diesel Interiors

What we like
The new i20’s best-in-class wheelbase allows for an airy cabin with ample space for the average urban family. The features list is very long also!
What we don't like
The design of the interiors have not changed over the earlier i20.

Hyundai i20 Diesel Interiors Details

Hyundai i20 Boot space

i20 is one of the most spacious hatchback models in the Indian market it has about 370litres of boot space.

Hyundai i20 Speedometer

The new dials and the digital fuel and temperature gauges between them look really smart.

Hyundai i20 Gear lever

Hyundai has re-introduced that nasty, shiny chrome gearlever that looks really cheap.

Hyundai i20 Cup holders

i20 has cup holders both at the front as well as at the rear of the car.


Hyundai i20 Diesel Exteriors

What we like
The new look at front is new and looks handsome.
What we don't like
The rest of the design looks pretty much the same.

Hyundai i20 Diesel 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.


Hyundai i20 Diesel Engine & Performance

What we like
The Kappa 1.2 is peppy but the diesel is our choice due to its strong performance.
What we don't like
The 1.4 is not that different with the 1.2 Kappa petrol in terms of performance.

Hyundai i20 Diesel 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.

What we like
The i20 has lots of safety features and has good braking performance.
What we don't like
The handling is not as good as the earlier i20 as it has a too soft suspension.

Hyundai i20 Diesel 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

i20 has an option for ABS in the car.

Hyundai i20 Traction control

i20 has no traction control for the car.

Hyundai i20 Diesel 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.

What we like
The ride is improved now over the earlier one.
What we don't like
The ride quality is still not class best.

Hyundai i20 Diesel 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

Hyundai i20 Front suspension

i20 uses Independent, MacPherson struts at the front which helps it to overcome almost any potholes on the road.

Hyundai i20 Rear suspension

i20 uses Non-independent, torsion beam at the rear and it makes sure that passengers at the back are comfortable in any kind of roads.

Good Value for money
Posted on Sep,09,24 7:41 AM

Pros Good Performance,Comfort,spacious

Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,

The car is great Value for 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.

I bought Hyundai i20 Asta (Diesel) on 23rd September, 2012. I have gone through a very bad experience with this car
since I purchased it. Look and features wise, it is O.K. but ground clearance is very poor, especially in hill areas.
