Showing information of Hyundai Elite i20 Asta Option 1.4 CRDi - Diesel variant

Highlights

 

July 22, 2016: Presently, the Hyundai Elite i20 is available with a manual gearbox only. It flaunts projector headlamps, cornering lights and LED DRLs as standard on the Asta(O) models. The South Korean carmaker has revamped this car to rival Maruti Baleno, which has garnered enormous sales in the last couple of months. The Elite i20 is available with a 1.4-litre diesel and a 1.2-litre petrol mill producing 90PSbhp and 83PS respectively. The car is priced from Rs. 5.8 lakh to Rs. 9.2 Lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). However, to give more options to its aspirants, Hyundai is all set to add an automatic version to its Elite i20s lineup. The automatic is likely to be offered with a four-speed AT gearbox and will be launched around the festive season.

Hyundai Elite i20 review

Introduction:


When we look at the impact that Hyundai has made here in India, we tend to wonder just how the South Korean manufacturer overshot numerous local and international competitors to become one of the most preferred brand in 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. Top notch quality of interiors. Second to only the Germans.

2. Loaded to the gills! Expansive feature list: projector headlamps, touchscreen infotainment etc. 

3. Hyundai's wide-spread service network.

Cons:

1. Mediocre petrol engine. Simply lacks the punch required.

2. No automatic variants. Polo, Baleno and Jazz have automatic variants. 

3. Vague steering at high speeds.

Stand-out Features:

Touchscreen infotainment is smooth and intuitive to use. Slightly better than the one on the Baleno. 
16” alloy wheels look super-cool!

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. Overall, it has a cleaner, sharper profile that injects a sliver of sportiness into its image.

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.

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 gets 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.  

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, you’ll love the diamond cut wheels.

The sloping roof-line along with the blacked out C-Pillar give a clean, yet contemporary ‘floating-roof’ effect. The C-pillar accent is now gloss black instead of matte black, which we think looks superb!

Coming to the rear side, the slim tail-lights that angle in towards the boot pack a steady look. The tail-lamps mimic an LED setup which again, looks really upmarket. That said, we would’ve loved to see the rear camera integrated better into the rear profile. The stubby camera jutting out below the insignia looks plain weird!

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:

Getting inside the Elite i20 is a relatively easy affair. Do note, that the Elite i20 is a slightly low-slung, which means one has to ‘sit-down’ inside the cabin. Ingress and egress isn’t too much of a bother since doors open nice and wide.

The interiors employ the same double tone Beige and Black color scheme present in the earlier version, and this paves the way for a sober atmosphere. The lower portion of the dashboard is colored black, while the upper half stretching all the way into the window screen is Beige. 

The metal highlights on the gear knob, parking brake and the inside door handles add that bit of needed contrast. 

The dashboard is elegantly designed, with uniquely designed AC vents at both corners and a sophisticated centre console at the focus. We like how the beige coloration runs from doorpad to doorpad. Pulls off the wrap-around look with ease!

The centre console now houses a touchscreen infotainment unit. The 7 inch unit supports all audio inputs and can play videos as well. It also gets in-built navigation. The unit is identical to the one seen on it’s bigger sibling - the Creta. 

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. 

The steering wheel is typically Hyundai and can be adjusted for rake only. Stocky and nice to hold, especially in the higher trims that feature the leather wrap. It gets controls for the music and the calls. 

The instrument cluster is minimalistic and has white backlighting. The tachometer and speedo flank the MID. While the MID displays basics like the trip meters and the average efficiency, we’d have loved to see a distance to empty readout here! 

The vehicle's seating arrangement has been founded on sound ergonomics, and we're sure most people would have nothing to complain about. The seats, both at the front and the rear are high on comfort. The driver’s seat gets adjust for height too and getting into a comfortable position is barely an issue. Hand rests and headrests add to the relaxed quality of the drive, and the lumbar support is excellent.

The rear seats are amongst the most spacious in the segment. Definitely better than the VW Polo for starters. The legroom and shoulder room can be termed generous. However, the sloping roof-line means that headroom at the rear is a pinch for the six footers. Seating a middle-occupant isn’t recommended either. The Elite i20 remains a strict four-seater in our books. 

The interiors of the Elite i20 strikes a beautiful balance between features, space and quality. Definitely among the best in its class, without a doubt!

Performance:

Diesel:

This is the engine to pick!  The 1.4 litre motor remains largely unchanged compared to the previous iteration. Power delivery is linear and turbo-lag is masked well. Not saying the turbo-lag doesn’t exist; just that it isn’t as prominent as in the 1.3 litre DDiS motor powering the Marutis. City driving is particularly outstanding with this engine, and you'll have lesser hassle than most other cars when squeezing through columns of traffic. Out on the highway, the engine is relaxed doing 120km/hr all day long. It doesn’t get particularly vocal too while revving high. The engine may not be to the enthusiasts taste like the Polo’s diesel mill, this certainly appeals to someone who prefers a relaxed cruise.

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. We couldn't help but get the feeling that the motor was overworked at times, particularly during high speed runs. Overtaking is a task in itself -  you’d have to downshift and keep the engine on the boil. 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. The engine will listen to your whims of puttering around the city calmly as long as you agree to not push it on the highway.

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.  The Elite rides flat most of the time and feels planted. The characteristic ‘bouncy’ nature of Hyundais is more or less ironed out with the i20.

The steering is nice and light. Going lock to lock on the steering is an easy affair. You’ll love the near weightless steering inside the city. However, it will make the car feel nervous and twitchy when you hit triple digit speeds. 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. It isn't everyday that you see a car that's well styled, good looking, loaded with comfort and reasonably priced. There are drawbacks viz. a not-so-ideal petrol engine, a steering that is over-assisted and the lack of features in lower trims. The Elite i20 comes across as a vehicle that is for someone who prefers a long feature list over an engaging drive.
