Hey, friends, I would like to warn you not to fall for the looks of Hyundai i20. I have done this mistake so I don't want others to do the same. I was planning to buy a car in five to six lakh rupees range and I was very much impressed with the looks of i20 and especially its rear side and Hyundai is a good brand as its i10 is very much popular in the market. I like the interior as well, dark brown dashboard with the well-placed controls. But my the car started showing its poor performance. The Hyundai i10 engine doesn't work in this car. I am speed lover but the car disappointed me on this front as well. I still wonder that what made people purchase this car.

  • suresh |15 Oct,2010 05:48:57 PM

    hai! I have i20 astra model. I like long drive with speed of 110km/hr, at present,speed gradual is very slow.In city drive I am getting only 11km/lt.If the advisors have quoted the mileage I would have gone to scorpio, which gives high pickup on highways.

  • asad ahmad |15 Oct,2010 10:49:56 PM

    hey i m also planning to buy i20 i m confused in its engine power(1200cc)and mileage wat do u say?

    I20 is to good car . I get the 18.54kmpl with ac on highway within 4 days when i purchased. Vw polo is not spacious car

  • Kersi Marolia |04 Nov,2010 12:35:25 PM

    Hey car lovers, I am hopeless with technology, mechanics etc.I am looking for a 1200cc compact car with a large cargo space and i20 was recommended but found out that the exhaust rusts very quickly....is it true? Help? and recommend what I should be looking for? Thanks.

  • Bask |06 Nov,2010 04:22:33 PM

    Huw come same 1.2L Kappa engine for both i10 & i20 petrol models? No doubt power seems to be an issue.But the looks are pretty with a premium

  • priyangshu |13 Nov,2010 08:56:21 AM

    If you wants good performing pick up in i20 go for its diesel version.Its overall a amazing car. Diesel version is definitely a better bet than swift.Also diesel version comes with disc breaks in 4 wheels.

    krunal |11 Jan,2011 02:31:30 PM

    Hey, myself patel Krunal and m very confused dat wich one shud i buy between i-20(diesel) or swift(diesel)..????

    madhulika |14 Mar,2011 09:07:21 PM

    go for swift.

    Ajay |17 Mar,2011 05:26:21 AM

    Is there a reason you recommend swift? From extensive reviews, i20 diesel seems the better option, but only if shelling out extra 1L is not an issue...

    kt |27 Mar,2011 12:22:55 PM

    go for swift

    nikhil |27 Jul,2011 01:54:58 PM

    very promtaly advice dont take a cosmatic product hyundi. you go for volskwagon polo or maruti sujuki swift

    Smeet |29 Jan,2015 04:45:38 PM

    Go for swift diesel its much better thai I20

    Eldho Varghese |01 Feb,2015 10:59:52 PM

    I20 disel...a car that loaded with full features. Almst servicing is little bit high than maruthi but really affordable...

  • sai |02 Dec,2010 10:39:09 PM

    is it really have gud performance in diesel?coz i,m planning to buy with in two weeks

  • akul |04 Dec,2010 12:38:04 PM

    hey sai,,i m also planning the same. But positively,i will buy a punto rather than i20. Frends,plz suggest me,if there are any other better options...

    ankit |13 Dec,2010 05:36:46 PM

    u should take punto dude its nice italian car and hav gud performa then i20 and also hav gud mileage . the drawbck of i20 is its underpowered and fuel gizzle and also prisey where punto is best in clas .

    Ajay |17 Mar,2011 05:31:11 AM

    Guys... From what I have read and analysed so far, i20 petrol sucks. But i20 diesel rocks. This is not surprising cos they have put a 1200cc engine of i10 in the i20. But with i20 diesel they have a 1400cc engine which delivers 90ps. Which is the highest in its class. But buy diesel only if you have a good amount of running to do (like 2k per month). Diesel engines need to be used longer or else they develop snags over a period of time.

    kt |27 Mar,2011 12:23:53 PM

    go for ritz

  • paras |09 Dec,2010 03:45:43 PM

    ankit |13 Dec,2010 05:42:38 PM

    hi as i hav driven all these cars but i lik the most is swift and figo but 1 choice i would go with swift its awsome car with maruti badge which u knw its best company in india but boring looks bckup this swift but if u choose i10 its also awsome car with great lucks and likeble features so if u want a less maintaince car go with i10 .

    nishad |23 Feb,2015 11:58:16 AM

    Oh............i20 or liva

    CarDekho Team |14 Dec,2010 11:32:02 AM

    Well to be frank all the cars that you have shortlisted are good able cars in the segment. Our pick would be either the Maruti Swift or the Hyundai i20. The Swift is a very well made car and has been the best seller in this segment for long and above all has the best in class after sales and support from Maruti Suzuki. The Hyundai i20 is also a good car with roomy interiors and a very good drive and feel. Take your pick from these two car models. Thanks, CarDekho Team

    Rakesh |24 Dec,2010 11:27:56 PM

    I am unable to finalise between i10 and i20. The mileage is a priority and hence I was checking on differences of mileage between i10 and i20. I'm not able to arrive at a conclusion based on reviews as the mileage quoted by various users depends on their driving styles. What is the difference of mileage seen between i10 and i20? I visited the showroom today and talked to couple of salesmen there. While 1st was inclined towards i10 quoting a mileage of around 18/16 on highway/city and stated a mileage of 16/12-14 for i20. The 2nd salesmen (along with a senior mechanic) was inclined to i20 quoted a highway mileage of 18 and 12-14 in city for i20. Now thats confusing me more :)

    Ajay |17 Mar,2011 05:34:56 AM

    Dude, If you want mileage then go with i20 Diesel...

    sree |05 Apr,2011 07:05:00 AM

    If Milage is really ur concern, go for Swift Disel with ABS (City-16 & highway - 21to22. of course, much depends on ur driving style). Sure u will never repent. But to Choose a zooming racing car u can go for i20 at a bit higher - price and economy. Good luck.

    Ajay |17 Mar,2011 05:36:41 AM

    Hi Cardekho Team, Isn't it true that a 1200cc engine on i20 petrol is not as performant as 1400cc engine?

    prakash kumar |06 Apr,2014 05:54:21 PM

    i20 very poor car breaking so much problem pickup problem milage problem after service maximum 2000 km perfect runing after getting much more problem i buy car from jodhpur rajasthan taken delivery by evening 6 clock 8 clock accident by breaking problem and next day morning once more accident as same problem break go to hard i asked dealer but he told me sir car is ok no any problem then i will pay bill accidented bumper 10000/- after that i was 5 time bumper changed so bad car please dnt buy i20 maruti Suzuki is best car

    mohit |06 Nov,2015 08:02:59 AM

    Hi I am Planning to buy either I 20 petrol Magna or xcent diesel (s) version. Both are costing me the same. Pls suggest which one would be a better pick and why? Based on all factors like comfort, style, looks, features etc.

  • Viswanath |12 Dec,2010 05:35:19 PM

    Hi I test drove i20, i10 and Jazz (and other major brands in last 4 weeks). Chevvy is giving real good deals in December. I drove on really bad roads (close to metro construction) and on fairly good road such as Nice corridor. Tested the acceleration, steering freeness, suspension on good road (30 kms/hr) and on bad road (slow speed - 5kms/hr) and at 70kms /hr on good road. Jazz transmitted all the shocks. we can feel the suspension shocks and the noise inside. The engine noise is quite high with all the windows completely closed. i10 and i20 seems to have pretty decent suspension. It smoothens out most of the shocks at the 3 speeds that i tried. Regarding the steering,gear hardness and clutch freeness Jazz, i10 and i20 seem to be doing pretty same. The electronic power steering works well in all. Breaks are good in Jazz, i10/i20 is acceptable. It is good enough. The features and goodies : i10/i20 scores many points over Jazz. Next point in India : Jazz has very low ground clearance. It is just about 7 inches. Hence it has all possibilities of scraping the ground, in road humps and pot holes. I will be deciding soon on one of them. Regarding power : 80/90 BHP is good enough for Indian conditions. I have been driving car since 15 years and have tried many cars, and have driven to many out stations, hills and have driven in all conditions of weather. Hence unless you are looking for a reckless driving of zooming and breaking, you can ignore power factor.

    paras |18 Dec,2010 01:24:30 PM

    hii viswanath i m paras pls suggest me that which car is best 4 me between i10magna or i20magna, i need a good luking car and also the good feature.. i like i20 magna luk its good and all the feature in this car but i m very confuse the both are the engine.... which one is the good

    Hi..! please help me because m very confused dat which car shud i buy between i-20 and swift..??? And also if i want to buy in diesel engine, den from i-20 and swift den which will be the better option.....????

    CarDekho Team |11 Jan,2011 03:28:22 PM

    Dear User, This is in regards to your query posted on the website CarDekho.com, we would like to inform you that Maruti Swift can be a better option if you are looking for a diesel vehicle, the cost of Maruti Swift is cheaper as compared to Hyundai i20. The maintenance cost of Maruti Swift is less in comparison to Hyundai i20. Thanks

    Ajay |17 Mar,2011 05:45:04 AM

    Hi CarDekho Team, If we can set aside the value for money aspect, which is a better buy Swift Diesel or i20 diesel? Hyundai claims i20 delivers 90bhp as opposed to swifts 75bhp? Reviews suggest the same. The main draw back with i20 vis-a-vie swift is the cost, but at 1-1.25L extra you get newer technology, better mileage, better performance, air bags and better looking vehicle... Your honest opinion would be much appreciated

    Ajay |17 Mar,2011 05:48:06 AM

    Don't buy Skoda fabia petrol, its a petrol guzzler. In city u may not even get 9KMPL. Also, the pickup is sluggish. The maintenance cost is higher and resale not that great... Don't buy i20 petrol either cos they have fitted the same engine (1200cc) of i10 into i20, which means the performance is going to be sluggish...

  • Rupesh |21 Dec,2010 03:12:06 PM

    CarDekho Team |04 Feb,2011 03:16:36 PM

    Dear User, We would like to inform you that Hyundai i20 comes in both petrol and diesel variants. Hyundai i20 petrol gives mileage of 14.0 kmpl in city conditions and 17.0 kmpl on highways, whereas Hyundai i20 diesel gives mileage of 18.0 kmpl in city conditions and 23.0 kmpl on highways. Thanks

    Abhijeet |06 Feb,2011 05:45:42 AM

    Hello CarDekho Team, I have seen almost everyone complaining about the mileage given by i20 contrary to your statement that i20 gives 18/23 mileage. I doubt how do you calculate the mileage. I hope you dont consider that ideal condition which never exists. Thanks

    CarDekho Team |07 Feb,2011 01:31:08 PM

    Dear Mr. Abhijeet, If you are referring to the Petrol i20 then in real world the mileage figures are close to 15kmpl and does the best of 16.5kmpl when driven on highways. The 1.2 Kappa2 VTVT engine that now comes on the Petrol i20 is fueal efficient but if you consider the Diesel vesrion of the i20 thats still better in terms of fuel efficiency the CRDI i20 easily gives a combined mileage of 19kmpl if driven sanely. plus it has immense torque and power under its belt. Thanks

    Sachin Mistry |01 Mar,2011 08:49:57 AM

    Dear CarDekho Team, You mentioned i20 is now equipped with 1.2 KAPPA2 VTVT engine ? Could you confirm this. I am still struggling to find this on official site of Hyundai to check if that was reality. Thanks, Sachin

    JP |12 Jul,2011 09:31:06 PM

    i checked yesterday at hyundai showroom, they dont have vtvt on 120

    Harpreet |30 Nov,2013 02:58:13 AM

    Hello sir, Am going for i20 sports petrol due to its overall features with design,comfort along with mileage.If its around 14-15 in city conditions,then i must say its fine as all hatchback cars in this segment let it be swift,amaze,fabia etc comes with same ranging from 13-15 kms.So i guess need not to think much about this.Another major concern is maintenance issues so hyundai has vast network.So i guess it would not be problem.Only concern is pick up issues.Well spend extra bucks and have higher pick up cars like ford classic petrol at the cost of milege.

  • aayush |07 Feb,2011 12:45:25 AM

    please suggest which one is better option i20 or skoda fabia...? considering power looks and features.

    CarDekho Team |07 Feb,2011 06:30:39 PM

    Dear User, We would like to inform you that Hyundai i20 is a value for money product. The interior comforts of Hyundai i20 are excellent. There is ample of legroom and cabin space. Looks of Hyundai i20 are sober. Performance, pick up and road gripping of Skoda Fabia is better than Hyundai i20.

    Can you please help us compare i10,i20 (1.2lt),and Volkwagen Polo comfortline ( All petrol variants)? Since i10 and i20 have the same engine , how do these cars compete in pickup, performance and driving comfort. Can you please highlight the After sales service and spare parts costs for Volkswagen POLO. Our contact number is : 919416745891

    CarDekho Team |22 Feb,2011 03:58:06 PM

    Dear User, The i10 is the fostest in the speed pick up from the lot followed by the i20 and then the VW Polo which has a 3 cylinder engine. The driving comfort is the best on the VW Polo so is the fit finish and overall quality.The After sales and service is the cheapest in an Hyundai as compared to the VW cars. Thanks

We statrted considering Chevy Beat LT(o) at first.. then vame Ford Figo titanium (petrol).. then VW polo comfortline (petrol) and later it was Hyundai i20 sports petrol.. seriously confused among these.. swift was ommited coz of its common nature..

  • kush |06 Apr,2011 10:33:39 PM

    Dear CarDekho team, I am planning to buy Hyundai i20 petrol in next 1 month. I am really worried about mileage factor. Few reviews here say that mileage is around 11 kmpl. And as per your replies, mileage of i20 is around 15 kmpl. How you get the mileage ? Do you get user feedback ? Also, can you suggest any other alternative in same segment other than Swift. Maruti Swift has waiting period of 3 months in Bangalore ? Thanks, Kush

    sayantan |17 May,2011 03:24:53 PM

    Ritz is the diesel hatchback among all. 17-18 km/pl city & 21 km/pl at highway, super grip, big wheels, most spacious internally with both best in class leg & head rooms, you will not feel cramped & siting on the floor behind the wheels. Just go for it and dont get confused.

  • Amit |19 Jun,2011 09:41:47 PM

    Hello Car Dekho Team I own a Maruti Baleno and am now looking for a hatchback.I do about 800-1000 km a month so am looking for petrol versions. I am confused between Polo Cl, Swift and i 20 sports. I test drove the polo today.It has a 3 cyl engine and I found it a bit noisy for a petrol car. Next test drive planned was the i 20 sports but after reading the forum I think the concern about having the same engine as i 10 is quite genuine. Pl suggest which one to go for.

  • Amit |19 Jun,2011 09:43:56 PM

    In continuation of my previos post...Whats your take on the i 10?

  • Raghu |05 Sep,2011 07:22:57 PM

    If your looking for below 7 lac go for Swift VDI. If budget is fine, go for i20. It as 1.4 (90bhp) music system plastic & body quality is good. Also look Punto you will get better deal (nice discount), you may get top end (ABS, Airbag).

    Karan |07 Sep,2011 09:25:46 AM

    Thanks Raghu..is the after sales service of Punto gud enuf? I m getting a TD this weekend on Punto. M looking for total VFM car.

    which hatchback is best in india please any body tell. price under 10 lacs

    Ritesh Madhok |07 May,2012 05:10:29 PM

    You can Go for either Volkswagen Vento or Honda City Where Vento scores more on the rear leg space, boot place, light steering, body control and of course cheaper price, Honda gives you a better engine performance, fuel economy and looks. The choice is still yours. Regards

    lokesh |09 Jun,2012 10:43:22 PM

    @ Ritesh...Hope you knew the meaning of hatchback!!!! @ Binny-I would suggest an I20. cheers.

  • junaid |06 Feb,2012 01:38:48 AM

    hi, i have i20 asta crdi 6speed manual and i'm very happy to have it generally all petrol engines give less milage than diesel engine mine gives 18-20 kmpl in city and 23 kmpl on highway in city speed is generaly 40-50 kms/hr and on highway 100 kms/hr.Pickup is good features are great space is very large be it boot space or interior of car my sugestion go for it.

  • carexpert |30 Mar,2012 10:13:59 PM

    Its high time to address on -i20 compared to wat the competition is offering. U can't get the best of both worlds in a single car, these days all cars r more or less driven in same kinda tech, so the bottom line is wat u want in a car, if u look for space,boot,sophisticated cabin witouh all bells n whistles with a decent look, look no further than i20, frankly if u r living in a metro city, u can't exploit the full capability of any engine so why bother ABA Kappa or vtech or k series, u save more petrol by ur driving habits than u do by these engines.. Simply outline ur needs and go for the Car ur heart wants to be in, be it punto,VW,i20,swift et'al. If urwhole concentration is towards reselling the car then ur buying the ccar to sell it, if u r buying the car for average only ur buying it for saving money only, if u r buying it for maintenance u r buying the car only to maintain it but I would suggest to buy the car u feel good in sitting into and which makes u confident in ur choice . Rest is all nonsense, ur heart is just searching for an approval on wat u hv already decided, go for itfor sheer love for it coz that's where life is happening, enjoy ur ride!!(pun)

    Raghvendra |04 Apr,2012 01:52:40 PM

    Hey carexpert, I think u r right. I bought the I20 Petrol last month but very much unhappy on the 2nd gear pick up & mileage. It really sucks when u consider the 6 lacs u paid for it. But honestly I20 was my dream car...and i bought it. As u said, how much u utilise the full engine is a question. I like the line - ur heart is just searching for an approval on wat u hv already decided. I am now getting on to the decision what i made and enjoying the ride.... so leave away the swifts, polos and all others... I love my I 20 !!!

    Carexpert |23 Apr,2012 06:32:34 PM

    Thts da way my dear friend!! Show ur love n respect and the car will love u back !!

    Vikas Sardana |19 Apr,2012 11:55:06 AM

    Very much agree with the comments of Carexpert..

    prakash kumar |06 Apr,2014 05:57:41 PM

  • Rajdevinder |23 Apr,2012 03:53:03 PM

    I20 is really a good car if your compare all the features with swift and any other hatchback it will fufill your needs.nowdays people are more carzy for swift but if you compare things like bootspace,Steering adjustment,interiors then you will go for i20

  • Murthy |26 Apr,2012 10:02:31 AM

    Hi Guys, I feel i20 Diesel is good choice as it saves on economy unless you are frequent changer of cars. Hyundai gives you basket of features which none other brands give you. I am planning to go for it instead of Fabia or Swift.

  • abhishek |26 Apr,2012 10:54:27 AM

    Hi Buddy, i BOUGHT MY I20 PERTOL SPORTZ in No2011. my car was going good except my car co passenger seat belt as it takes a very long time to return back to its orignal postion once used.But real evil struck when i had my car secord service. I drove my car without any issue for 15-20 km. But suddenly my car engine swithed off and could not be swithed on again. i called my hyundai motors ther gave me road assistence but my car ignition issue is not fixed. I got just few crank sound. support guy told me please send you rcar to service center. I was shocked and just betrayed as i had alrady spent my hard earning to buy this car as i was a grate admirer of this car.Recent new ABOUT MY CAR BROKE DOWN IS MY CAR HAS FAULTY ecu(mICROPROCESSOR) its an very imp part of car. and they will bring this ECu from pune as they dont have.its been three days. Please go to internate site and check hyundai cars has this ECU problem and concerns are being raised fromall over the woarld . its something related to petrol octane. I read artical from many suffere of this issue. they have lost hope as this ECU issue can not be rectified completly . your service center will fix it just keeping your car in workshop. you will ahve same issue again after a week if very lucy monthly

  • rajiv kumar |01 May,2012 04:55:43 AM

  • sasi |27 Jan,2013 05:31:42 PM

    Hi car dekho team and friends, From all the above reviews, I can understood that i20 diesel rocks bcoz of 1.4 crdi. But the important is that i20 disel have high maintenance to i20 petrl. Pls comment on this. I going to buy it in another mont. Pls comment

  • ashwin |15 Apr,2013 08:47:59 PM

    It's an awesome car!, I just bought it (an asta with 2 air bags), city mileage is quite ok and even all comfort inside, what else u guys want in just 700k? love it...!

  • Sibu |29 Oct,2013 05:04:37 PM

    Hi, I own an i20 petrol to be very clear it is not that stable at high speeds as the shock absorbers are designed for indian city roads, they are soft as a result you get that vobbling effect unlike the american cars which have very stiff silencers which are stiff, and over great handling at highways but create a lot of noise when hit ups and downs in the city and are a bit bumpy. hence I would advice every one to buy i20 if it suits their needs as in driving inside city with great comfort this is the car to go for, sure shot head turner, 12 13 kmpl average, has most of the features but not for long rides at high speeds. It very good for speeds till 130 140 but beyond that its not that trust worthy I would trust my ecosport more at higher speeds. Well in city it serves the purpose of comfort acceleration and looks. If you want faster cars better go for a ford figo. I20 is a city comfort car unlike a highway hatch back. It comes in budget features are good speed is good over all a better car at that price

  • er.rtgs |09 Jul,2014 12:39:33 PM

    I am planning to buy a diesel car. Pls suggest weather to go for i20 sportz or ford figo. My first and prime concern is milege and maintenance cost. I drive on economy speed of 60 to 75km/hr.

    Hello , if you guys complaning about milage so why dont you go for NANO ! If you buying i20 elite dont even think about high milage but i m sure its best in comfert and i have bought i20 elite and i m getting milage in city 11kmplwith ac on and 15 kmpl on highway ! And i have been told by company i will get more milage after 2nd servicing and thats truth and i m very happy about it even if avarage increases by 2 as its best car in comfert so im thinking to i increase my income rather than complaning about milage ! You have to compromise somewhere ! Thanks
