Editorial Test Drive Review of Hyundai i20 2008-2010 1.2 Kappa Magna



Hyundai’s philosophy of providing quality and style in their hatchback offerings took a bold new step with the launch of the i20. Initially criticized for its high sticker price, Indians soon realized the overall package that this car offers. Its styling is modern, very European and certainly makes the car look classier than its rivals. Dimension wise too, the i20 is pretty big and commands road presence. Size does matter and on the inside, the i20 really excels. It is more spacious than some of the similar priced sedans and this surely is a selling point for the car. Even with tall adults up front, there is enough space for three at the back. Next, the quality of plastics used is terrific and the i20 certainly feels like a more expensive vehicle.

Ride quality is great and the light steering along with the smooth gearbox makes life easy in congested city traffic.

Hyundai currently offers the i20 in two engine options. The 1.2-litre petrol engine is same one that powers the i10 and is known for its smooth operation and good performance at low engine speeds. There is also a 1.4-litre petrol engine that comes only with an automatic transmission. The third engine option is the 1.4-litre diesel motor that is in a world of its own! It loves being revved and can be a hoot to push hard when required and comes with a 6-speed manual transmission. The Hyundai i20 diesel has the best performance among all the diesel hatchbacks on sale in India. It is supremely fuel efficient as well. The only flaw with the diesel version is its high sticker price. The i20 is sold in fourteen different versions including two with automatic transmission system. 


Pros: Looks, space, value
Cons: Soft suspension for full load, low end punch (diesel)

Pros Stunner to look,solid build,safety,interiors.

Cons Overtaking ability,flat out acceleration

i own an I20.believe me,its a gr8 buy.excellent to look,its a genuine stunner in the looks department with neat lines and cute doesnt hav oddball looks of a ritz or the grumpy looks of the feels that u are seated in a higher specced car that it actually is.......go for it if u are one to look for classy styling and gr8 VFM features....i was abt to buy the jazz but i think i made the right decision by buying the I20 coz it saved a good amt of money and i can plan for the Cruze with that amt of money in the near future.......i wish the I20 was torquier coz then it would be a deadly combination as the 90 Hp model is way too expensive for the sticker price...........
