2 Year completion review
I received delivery of my Hyundai elite i20 (Asta CRDi) in the October 2014. The car has successfully completed 2 years recently and it is time for a comprehensive review. The car has run 28000 kms and has gone for 3 services in this period.
As an automobile enthusiast, I am confident that the price paid and the experience of the car has been totally worth it. In this period, I have driven it around cities and cross country as well. Average mileage over the period was around 20 kmpl ( mine is a diesel variant).
Design and styling
Head room rear seat
Window height rear seat
High speed braking a little wobbly
No distance to empty indicator
Rear camera display not really good
Over the period, the car has not given me any kind of breakdowns or upsets. The quality of everything is very premium for a sub 10L car. The car easily goes to speeds of 160 kmph and above. High-speed driving is very assuring, the steering becomes heavy gradually and the car seems to be well planted with the road. At low, speeds the car does not have much of turbo lag and has power at very low rpms, a shift down can be avoided mostly just by putting the foot down a little.
The service charges are moderate and parts too are not very expensive. One drawback I felt while driving though was due to the design of the car, the back seems wider as compared to the front and hence reverse parking is not very accurate and in the straight line most of the time, even with the help of reverse cams and sensors.
Apart from this, honest to God, I am a very happy and satisfied user of this vehicle and for a person who likes features and premium-ness combined with driving pleasure and sportiness, Hyundai elite i20 diesel is a perfect fit.
