Hyundai Elite i20 Review

Overview

Introduction:


When we look at the impact that Hyundai has made here in India, we tend to wonder just how the Japanese manufacturer overshot numerous local and international competitors to become one of the most preferred brand to the Indian auto-base. Well, when you look at a car like the Elite i20, you tend to get a glimpse of the answer. Style, charisma, comfort and moderate performance come together in this vehicle, honed to perfection with a genuinely modern touch. The car has got quite a history: having been launched just a few years ago, it took the market by storm, and since then, updated versions and variants have been waiting in line to woo the crowds. But that isn't to say, of course, that the vehicle hasn't got its fair share of let-downs. We've got our eye out for exactly where it could do better as we dig through all faces of the model to flush out its goods and its not so good factors. 


Pros:


1. Fantastic exteriors, sure to stir up younger generations.


2. The 1.4-litre Diesel engine gives you quite the drive, and the gearbox's shifting is impeccable.


3. It comes along with a reliable after-sales service, sure to spare you a lot of worries.


Cons:


1. Tall and husky people may feel confined within the limited cabin area.


2. Lack of more sophisticated equipment within is sure to deter some buyers.


3. The lack of ABS, airbags and other safety functions across all trims causes disappointment.


Stand-out Features:


1. The fact that it has in-cabin Bluetooth is sure to delight many people of today's generation.


2. Some very sound safety factors, such as reverse sensors and a clutch lock, sure to put the vehicle in a good light for most people. 


Overview:


It's safe to say that this is one of the more easily spotted vehicles on roads today. The Hyundai Elite i20 is the people's car, having captured exactly what the middle class dreams off: A balance between quality and price. The new version's exterior grabs a few glances when it rolls down the street, with the streamlined profile and the more hawkish design of the front. Meanwhile, its inner atmosphere puts the passengers at ease throughout, and we were quite satisfied with the presence of many comfort and entertainment features. There are two engine formats for customers to choose from, a 1.2-litre petrol trim and a 1.4-litre diesel train. Customers would be content knowing that the prowess of the engine is neutralized with the presence of well enforced braking and chassis arrangements. There are 6 variant levels for customers to choose from, starting with the utilitarian 'Era', going all the way up to the exhaustively stuffed ‘Asta (O)'. 


Exteriors:


It would be a pretty bold statement to say that this is the best looking vehicle in its class, but we're sure many others would agree with us on this regard. The car has evolved much since inception, where it looked different to some degree. The version we see now has absorbed a rougher and sportier bearing. Its front portion is angular and streamlined, while its roof line is lower and more aesthetic.



Overall, it has a cleaner, sharper profile that injects a sliver of sportiness into its image. When you stand before this vehicle, you can't help but feel surprised at its Japanese origins. We'll admit this: If you had removed the Hyundai emblem from the front and other identification marks, we would've easily mistaken it for a German branded model.



Its face has an aggressive hue, and this is further enhanced by the sharp headlamps that trail into the sides. At the focus of the front is a massive hexagon shaped grille. If you take a closer look at the grille, you'll spot those intricate chrome highlights that melt into the black background perfectly, and we thought this added to the remarkable stature of the front. 



At the bottom, a long strip of black spreads out for the air dam, while fog lamps rest by the corners. The body colored bumper brings a more harmonious constitution to the face. The large bonnet is glazed with subtle body lines, and we loved the fine body curves that stand out around the bumper. 



The skin of the front skirt flows out in a fluidic manner, weaving around the thick wheel arches by the side. A more muscular visual tone is added to the car with the beefed up anchors around the wheels. 



You can tell the company's capitalizing on the average Indian's love for chrome with the chrome touched door handles, which were pretty pleasant. The body colored mirrors are neatly designed, integrating into the picture well. If you're going for the higher end variants, the diamond cut alloy wheels will definitely enthrall you, and we thought it added a more affluent look to the side.



The graceful posture of the vehicle makes for a more invigorated, sporty look, with the roof-line higher at the rear and tapering down towards the bonnet. If you belong to the class of race-loving car enthusiasts, then this will definitely delight you. 




Coming to the rear side, the slim tail-lights that angle in towards the boot pack a steady look, while the Hyundai marquee at the centre of the tail-gate would make a distinguished impression in anyone's mind. 




Interiors:


If you're looking for roominess and space, then be warned: this vehicle will disappoint. The cabin has some luster with some fragrant themes and plush highlights. The interiors employ the same double tone Beige and Black color scheme present in the earlier version, and this paves the way for a more energetic atmosphere. What the cabin lacks in size, it more than makes up for in ride environment.



The dashboard is elegantly designed, with uniquely designed AC vents at both corners and a sophisticated centre console at the focus. The glove box slides down into the front occupant's legroom, which leaves plenty of storage room within. The lower portion of the dashboard is colored black, while the upper half stretching all the way into the window screen is Beige. 



We enjoyed the diversity of the atmosphere, and thought it fed off a trend that most car makers are following today here in India. The audio system is positioned at the top of the centre console, right below two more AC lids. 



Though it comes as a highlight, the central screen could have been bigger to draw more attention in our opinion. The controls to the system are arranged around the display, and a large engine start/stop button is present by the side of the console. The new edition has been updated with an advanced AVN(Audio Visual Navigation) system that comes along with a seven inch Touch screen Infotainment  system.



Below is the climate control facility which hosts a slender screen with blue illumination. At the lower end of the console, you have a moderate storage area where occupants can keep phones and other spare items. Also incorporated here are dual 12V power sockets, a USB and an Aux-In port, adding convenience to the passenger's experience. 




By the right side corner, the steering wheel gives an aptly designed feel, and the leather dressing makes it soothing to hold. 




In front of the steering wheel, the instrument cluster comes with a tachometer and a speedometer, and the illuminated dials make it easy to read in any condition. 



Map pockets are present by all of the doors, but we have to stress that they're too shallow to hold anything substantial. The vehicle's seating arrangement has been founded on sound ergonomics, and we're sure most people would have nothing to complain about. 



Hand rests and headrests add to the relaxed quality of the drive, and the lumbar support is excellent. The seat upholstery rakes up the premium feel of the drive, while the contrasting Beige and Black stitching is a visual feat. 



You get a more vibrant pulse with the metal highlights on the gear knob, parking brake and the inside door handles, and it was more than obvious that the company went out of the way to enriched the atmosphere.


Performance:


Diesel:


The inner mechanics remain untouched for the new edition. For the diesel version, there is the same 1.4-litre U2 CRDi engine, which displaces a decent 1396cc. It consists of 4 cylinders and 16 valves incorporated through the double overhead camshaft arrangement. The specifications of the engine position it as a vehicle of mediocre performance in its class, with 89bhp at 4000rpm, together with a torque of 220Nm at 1500rpm to 2750rpm. We thought the working of the engine was pretty good, with a more linear power delivery and a reduced turbo-lag when compared to the previous version. City driving is particularly outstanding with this engine, and you'll have lesser hassle than most other cars when squeezing through columns of traffic. Throttle response was all too good, and we got the impression that the power was channeled to the wheels in a wholesomely mature fashion. The engine is meshed with a 6-speed manual transmission which we had no trouble operating.




Petrol:


As for the petrol variant, it is a 1.2-litre Kappa VTVT engine which displaces 1197cc. It is inherited from the version of this model released back in 2012, but there are minor tweaks to it. 4 cylinders which contain 4 valves each are put together in the double overhead camshaft system, and a dual VTVT system further strengthens the working of the mill. We thought the specifications were passable, with a power of 82bhp at 6000rpm, and a torque of 115Nm at 4000rpm. We couldn't help but get the feeling that the motor was overworked at times, particularly at high speed grilling. Crossing 120kmph puts quite a bit of strain in the train, and this unveils its weak spot. We've got to be honest in that this mill is not quite as clean as the diesel variant. Overtaking is not exceptional, and you'd be better off abandoning all your high speed urges and putting up with the limited capacity of the engine. The sweet spot, nevertheless, is the 5-speed manual gearbox which is just precise, smooth and easy to use. We thought that it made up for the flaws of the engine perhaps to some extent. 




Ride and Handling:


Compared to the earlier versions, this vehicle has improved quite a bit in terms of ride quality and comfort. Taking on road hassles is done with ease and confidence, and we could say the vehicle has matured in its handling of the rash Indian roads. Steering is easy at mediocre speeds, but you could feel the electric steering build some weight at higher speeds. Nevertheless, we'd place the response and precision of this vehicle's steering second to the Swift. You might be annoyed at the aggressive re-positioning of the wheel, which spins back to the centre too quickly for some drivers. If you're going to be behind the wheel of this ride, brace yourself for a pair of fatigued arms when the ride's over. You're sure to note the strength of the suspension, with a McPherson system at the front arm and a coupled torsion beam axle at the rear. Coil springs have been compounded onto both axles, and gas type shock absorbers sure do boost the ride quality. As for the braking part, we were disappointed that the company replaced the rear disc brakes with drums, which in our opinion are less effective. Nevertheless, the combination of discs at the front and drums at the rear works fine, and cornering and halting are a reasonably smooth affair. 



Safety:


We've got to hand it to Hyundai for some impressive safety elements. The downside – some of them are exclusive for higher trims. For the new edition, however, dual airbags have been made standard across the entire trim range, and this is definitely a plus point. Security facilities on the more techno end include ABS, rear parking sensors and a rear camera, a central locking system, and an electrochromic rear view display. Aside from this, front passengers avail the benefit of seatbelts that come along with pretensioners, a keyless entry system, a rear defogger that comes with a timer, and a headlamp escort function. An immobilizer saves the driver some worry, acting as a safeguard against theft. 




Variant:


There are six trims in all: Era, Magna, Sportz, Spotz (O), Asta and Asta (O). The lower end trims are given a reduced price burden, but a curtailed features list. Meanwhile, the higher trims boast a whole load of features, but are slapped with a higher price. The starting trim, Era, comes with a central locking, smart pedal, dual trip meter, digital clock, low fuel reminder, door ajar warning and adjustable headrests. Meanwhile, Magna and Sportz are graced with some more charming features, including a 2 DIN audio system, 1GB internal memory, Bluetooth facility, rear AC vents and a cooled glove box. The higher end trims, Asta and Asta(O) have it all: A fully automatic air conditioning system, a rear wiper and washer, luggage lamp, electrically foldable outside mirrors, a parking sensor display and an auto unlock function. We're going to recommend the higher end trims if and only if you insist on class and luxury. If you can curb a little bit of the glitz and settle for a lower price, then you'd be better off with the lower end trims. The variants in between would help those caught between both ends. 



Verdict:


The i20 has come a long way, and we'll give you this: it isn't everyday that you see a car that's well styled, good looking, loaded with comfort and reasonably priced. But the grand machine does have some setbacks to its glamour, including a not-so-ideal petrol engine, a steering that could put drivers off and the lack of features across all trims. At the end of the day, this vehicle is ideal for a person looking for most of the things he can get in a car at the right price. But if you insist on more than just that, and if you're willing to bear the pinch of your wallet for it, then we'd suggest that you head for other more valuable brands.
