Pros : Style and Features
Cons : Pick up

Look and Style Very Good Comfort Good. More leg space is there and suspension is good. AC is good, the music player could have been improved. I don't like the in-built music player. Rest everything is good. Pickup The Advaith Hyundai showroom guy (Bangalore) told me that the pick up problem in the 2nd gear has been fixed in the new model. But what I found that the problem is still there. The vehicle is not having the pick up in 2nd gear and hence it is becoming a problem while driving in the city traffic. Mileage Not yet measured Best Features Interior Needs to improve Pick up at second gear Overall Experience Till now ok. I bought the vehicle just one month back. Not yet fully explored. Need to check and then I can share my views.

Hi ashwini, evn im using the asta CRDI, Im also facing the pick up problem in the second gear, are u also facing the sam problem??

I think its a petrol version of i20 that one has a problem of pick up in 2nd gear due to engine is not strong enough for a car like i20. it should be 1.4 cc engine in petrol versions. My one diesel no pick up problem in 2nd gear

Reply By Aswini Kumar 15 May,2011 09:36:48 PM

Yes, you might be right. At the time of my first service, I informed the service engineer about the same. Now the pick up at 2nd gear is fixed to some extent after the 1st service. When the A/C is not on, the pick up is good. But if the A/C is on, then pick up is bit slow at the 2nd gear.

i am in a plan to buy i20 within 2 months and i now have a santro xing model how about the milage in the car in city (chennai)

Asked By MAYUR 21 Jun,2011 05:50:31 PM

yes there s lag in the 2nd gear..i probably feel bcoz of the electronic fuel injection system..but overall performance is very good..its rocket in highway..can comfortably touch 140 with out any problem...excellent road grip..cabin noise s very less..good value for money..i get around 15kmpl in city wit AC and around 18 in highway again wit AC...good value for money..though its a bit expensive than swift its much better than it interms of leg room in the rear n boot space and the interior quality..

U r Very lucky I am a good driver but I am not getting more then 10-11 Km. in Delhi.

Reply By Akshay 04 Jun,2014 01:01:22 PM

Asked By Aman 26 Jun,2011 11:27:38 AM

Mine is Asta ver. same problem in 2nd gear as you mentioned, the car is best in class, but still problem occurs in traffic, car vibrates and shuts off while driving, it is really frustrating, but no problem occurs when A/C is off! :)

Asked By Amit Narwal 01 Nov,2011 12:51:22 PM

i have i 20 sportz diesel model nov.2010 , it i found that in second gear we cannot move farward from starting which is good with verna fludic . if car is slow on breaker i have to put it in first gear not coming up with second gear. all other things i am happy but only this second gear problem.

Asked By Amit Narwal 01 Nov,2011 12:52:24 PM

can this problem is shorted out

Reply By Aswini 01 Nov,2011 02:02:45 PM

Hi, Unfortunately it cannot be sorted out. I spoke to the technician at Hyundai, and he told that it cannot be. May be in future, Hyundai can do something. But right now we need to be satisfied with as it is. But the car is really good. It is almost 7 months I bought the vehicle and already I have travelled 4000 kms. Performance is really good. Hence am ignoring the 2nd gear issue.

Hi, I have bought i20 Asta CRDI 3 days back and i am also facing the 2nd gear issue. At the showroom they told me that they can solve this by tuning it at the first service. Everything is great except the 2nd gear as of now. I will update more in next 2 month after my first service.

I have been driving cars from past 15 years & I drive very well. Last week I went to Nanital from Delhi by my 8 months old Hyundai i20 sports & now I realized how wrong this decision was. (buying this car) 1.2 Lt. Petrol Engine is not sufficient for this car. Very bad pickup on the hilly area & even it was very difficult to over take any other car on the plane area due to bad pickup. One more thing after my trip some knocking sound has started from the engine it may be from piston rings. Performance wise it was not up to the mark. More over the average is around 13Km. on Highway. Trust me Plz. Think once again before buying this car.

Asked By Jairaj 01 Dec,2014 09:19:15 AM

I have also have this 2nd gear issues on hill slopes and speed breakers for my less than one year old i20 petrol sports car. Service centre people say it is a issue with this model but yours is more they will solve it but still it will persists. My question why should my car not be replaced and why company sells this defective cars. On hill slopes, maruti 800 and Santro overtakes us. Overtaking becomes a serious issues on highways. Do not buy i20.
