Can the priciest powertrain of the new-gen i20 deliver its claimed mileage in the real world? We find out

The latest generation of the Hyundai i20 premium hatchback brings with it some fresh design, added features and an updated powertrain lineup. It gets the same engines as the Venue which includes the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine but only with the 6-speed iMT (clutchless manual) and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmissions. We had the chance to put the turbocharged i20 with the DCT automatic through our fuel efficiency test and these are our findings:

Engine

1.0-litre turbo-petrol

Power

120PS

Torque

172Nm

Transmission

7-speed dual-clutch automatic

Claimed fuel efficiency

20.28kmpl

Tested fuel efficiency (City)

12.06kmpl

Tested fuel efficiency (Highway)

17.18kmpl

The turbo-petrol i20 with its pricey DCT automatic gearbox falls a long way short of its claimed mileage figures, especially in city driving. We were only able to get a mileage of 12.06kmpl in the city, which is 8.22kmpl less than the ARAI certified figure. The efficiency improved greatly on the highways but was still 3.1kmpl short of the claimed mileage. ARAI figures are based on mileage achieved in controlled and simulated test conditions, which is why they are usually higher than what is usually achieved in real world conditions.

Based on the results of our real-world fuel efficiency tests in the city and on the highway, we’ve estimated how this variant of the i20 would fare in mixed driving conditions:

City:Highway Ratio

50:50

25:75

75:25

Mileage

14.17kmpl

15.53kmpl

13.03kmpl

If you drive equal parts in the city and on the highway, you can expect the i20 turbo-petrol DCT to deliver a little over 14kmpl. In case most of your driving mileage is out on the highway, the i20 DCT can deliver 15.5kmpl. However, if you’ll be using it mostly in the city, you can expect to get 13kmpl from this variant of the i20.

It is worth noting that fuel efficiency figures depend on a combination of driving style, the car’s condition and the driving conditions. So your experience may vary from ours and if you own the new i20 turbo-petrol DCT, feel free to share your findings with us in the comments.

The Side Turn Indicators MUST be placed outermost in the Headlamp Assembly for better visibility during night times.
