Hyundai Elite i20 gets you the real Elite feel ahead of the market contenders, Appealing Road presence & near flawless Styling & Ergonomics, with brilliance in Color options.

Users & viewers know more About the Design & quality feel of the Exterior & interior, I'm not going to touch on that, but how it would flatten you in Day to day with its dynamic performance will be much of interest for many. Here comes my Experience with Elite i20 Diesel after driving 5000 kms in 2 months

Handling : A real Highway cruiser Clocking 140 kmph withgood stability & Confidence ensuring Body Dynamics.

Ride: Almost a flat feel in straight drive & Good in absorbing most of the road undulations & pot holes, bit bouncy feel in rear while negotiating Speed Breakers ( however normal while crossing below 15 kmph)

Braking : Not a sharp initial bite, however not spongy, though, optimal performance for matching the predictions

NVH : Engine Booming on initial rpm above 1000 ~ 1200 rpm, however fades of later & offers the best in class Noise & vibration levels there on. No match could be done with Elite ( for its Elite class of Quiet Cabin)

Steering : A very light effort Steering feel ( much desired) in City Condition & Weighs good over speeds & gets real heavy over 120 kph , Retunability is perfect with achieving Zero position with more assist ( really Handy & Awesome)

Drivability: Engine Drives Smooth with wide spread of 6 gears - achieves 100 + kmph in 6th gear with closer to 2000 rpm, Highway performance is near comparable to polo 1.5 TDi & Superior than the Maruti's

Fuel Economy: Frugal Engine Performance with Very good Air Con Performance, Turns to 18+ kmph in drive conditions exposed to City 30% H/way 70% ( Decent figures with All time AC ON condition & bit enthusiastic Driving )

Features that Woo You:

1. Striking Diamond cut Alloy

2. Electro Chromatic Indise Rear view mirror : A much needed gadget for Indian high beam usage & intergrated Rear view Camera ( good clarity)

3. Welcome Function - yup that posche feel, welcome by some one with smile ( lights)

4. Steering mounted Controls : toggles are far far better than the buttons, A flick of the finger will do things

5. AVN : Though my variant is one below the Top end ( Asta ), But could experience this good quality build of App, Display though above Average

6.Rear Air vent: Does the Job perfect on distribution - as the O/all Air con performance itself is good

7. Sun glass holder, Driver arm rest & Storage, Dual zone Cabin lamp, Auto head lmaps , DRL & projector

8. Static bending lamps - A great features for curvy road driving to avoid sudden surprises

9. A fuzz free buying & owning from a brand HYUNDAI is often to be desired take for any one


A perfect upgrade from Maruti Alto 800 to Premium car of this Class & Really worth shelling 10 lacs for a perfect upgrade with no Compromise. I mean it ! really No Compromise !!!!
