A reliable car
I own an i20, to be frank with even though the black color looks amazing it is literally difficult to clean and maintain its luster, The Car has Good exterior features , the profile line which moves from low to high from the front to back gives the car a big and sporty look, the front chrome finish on the front grill catch the eye. Boot space is the best in this class.The boot curve projection gives it a classy look. The tools and jack are arranged so perfectly. The head light sinks very well with the body unlike in many vehicles it is protruded which reminds me of a frog's eye. The lack of front fog lamps is a major deficiency. The lines between the bonnets, boot doors are all perfect. The doors and boots get closed so smoothly, but the side rear view mirrors hinges are not strong enough to handle the rash bike drivers on Indian condition. The interiors are also very good the panel visibility, music system operations are all very good. But the bottle holders on the front doors are undersized to hold normal bottles. The cabin space is also good that even a 6 footer can sit comfortably at rear seat, I don't recommend 5 persons to travel together for long drives as 3 at the rear would not be that comfortable.
The engine initial pick is low but can move off pushing the pedal down, if you have good driving habits it will fetch you an excellent mileage of 25 to 28 Km on highways. Ensure that you maintain correct Tyre pressure, Honda recommends 33 and 29 PSI for front and rear respectively, unfortunately, many of the Tyre workers (including Nitrogen) fills a flat 32 to all four Tyre's which drastically affect the millage stability and Tyre life. most places even the pressure gauges are faulty. The power of the vehicle can be felt while climbing uphills. The engine is protected from below so that the engine room is so clean and dust free. Talking about the high service cost is not so true if your odometer clocks 10000 km in 6 months. if your running is low you may feel a higher service cost due to the 6-month service frequency, The average service cost I incurred is 5000/- to 6000/- INR. I have driven my car for 38000 km and except the routine service no work as come. The service at Hyundai, we may have to push them a bit to get the work done properly, but still good compared to many others. I strongly recommend this car if your average run is 20000 Km or above a year.
