HYUNDAI I20: The best hatch
Today I am writing a review of my Hyundai Elite i20. I purchased it in october 2016. I bought the asta option 1.4 CRDI variant. It runs on diesel. I bought the white color variant it looks very classy. I liked this car since 2009 when it was launched since then I thought that one day I will also get this car & when I bought this it was like a dream come true. As time flew some improvements were continuously made in this car but the major improvement was in 2015 when the elite i20 was launched. This car had a completely changed character in 2015 making most of the hatchback were attracted towards it & I was also one of them. The 2016 model had some minor improvements like touch screen infotainment system & projector headlamps. This car is fun & easy to drive. It is a very practically designed car & perfect for daily usage. This time it was a more sporty looking car. The interior & the exterior are properly laid out & looks well designed than the previous 2 generations of Hyundai i20. It also has daytime running LED lamps which look very cool. 1) This car is packed with a 1396 CC 4 cylinder turbocharged engine. Each cylinder contains 16 valves. This complete combination produces a maximum power of 89 bhp @ 4000 RPM & a maximum torque of 220 Nm @ 1500 RPM. It gives a mileage of 17 KM (approx) in city drives. I have taken it to a maximum speed of 150 KM/H. When I suddenly accelerate it the engine becomes bit noisy & it feels quite irritating as well. Overall in terms of performance, it is a good car. 2) Its exteriors are literally exotic. The front grill surrounded by a thin chrome garnished strip looks beautiful & elegant. The black & silver color alloy wheels look awesome on the car & give a sporty punch to the car. The rear spoiler looks fabulous on the car the wide tail lamps increase the beauty of the car. The chrome garnished door handles look pretty good making its side profile marvelous. 3) As you will enter in the car you would only say "WOW". The interior of this car is top notch & the best in its segment. It has got a dual tone interior due to which the cabin feels quite open & airy. The dashboard of this car looks beautiful with creme & black color combination. The dashboard is well designed & properly laid out. The big touch screen looks beautiful. The seats are made of a color combination of & creme & black which looks beautiful & match the dashboard. Overall it is a nice package & value for money. 4) In terms of comfort, it is a very comfortable car. The front seats are very comfortable with driver's seat height adjustable, it has got great thigh support making the drive a pleasurable one. The back seats are also comfortable with a nice inclination angle & great thigh support. The leg room & the head room is also great. But there is no armrest at the back seat which lacks a bit in comfort. The suspension of this car is nice, it absorbs almost all the bumps & also does not make much noise. The air conditioner of this car works very well & it does not even take 5 minutes to cool the car, the rear AC vents are also very effective. The parking sensors & the rear camera also works well. 5) It is a very spacious car & has plenty amount of storage. The door pockets can easily hold a 1 L bottle. The storage of front armrest is also enough. The boot is quite big i.e. 285 L & is practically design so that it can easily accommodate a good amount of luggage. This car has a cooled glove box & also has plenty of storage. Overall it is a spacious car. 6) The infotainment system is also great & works perfectly. The touchscreen in this car works great. It supports Bluetooth, 1 AUX port & a USB port. It is easy to access & control. This car also gets navigation support which is a great feature. 7) This is the only car in its price range which offers very good safety by providing 6 airbags. 8) It has got a warranty of 2 years & there is no limit on the number of kilometers driven. I believe that it is a very nice car & worth spending. It has a powerful engine good mileage & an affordable price. Hyundai i20 is pocket-friendly in maintenance. In terms of everything, this car scores well & I think that it is the best option one can opt for. Just it is a bit costlier than its rivals like polo & Baleno but still, it is a great car to choose.
