Pros : Powerful CRDi engine and premium interiors

Cons : Not much except no projector headlamps


Look and Style: Awesome, really loved the flat long bonnet which is placed slightly higher to make a well fed front look. The sleek and long waist line and black C pillars really help it to stand out of the lot. Car looks solid and planted, gives a very sophisticated look.

Comfort: Very comfortable, the ride quality is absolutly superb CRDi engines are so refined one can barely feel any major vibrations inside the cabin.

Pickup: Well, this one is amazing when I flexed the right foot, initial 1 to 1.5 seconds is pretty average but once you get past the 1800rpm, you get a massive surge of torque and it pulls like nothing. The turbo hit is so brilliant that it gets you hold back in your seats.

Mileage: Well it gives 13 to 15kmpl on city and 18 to 19kmpl on the highways depending on your driving style.

Best Features: Blue LED illumination, audio system, rear parking camera, electronically foldable ORVMs

Needs to improve: A lil on handling, projector headlamps and DRLs

Overall Experience: Very satisfying

    What is the mileage of petrol version of i20 elite

    Debapratim De |25 Apr,2015 08:34:33 AM

    Itz a lil less than ARAI claimed one..u can xpect 13 to 14 on the city & 16 to 17 on the highs..if u wanna rev each gear near to d redline it will certainly drop down a bit..

    Peeyush |02 May,2015 05:26:31 PM

    Agree with you

    Puneet |06 Jul,2015 05:52:40 PM

    i am getting a average of 11, is there some problem which i should highlight while going for 2nd service.

    Which one is best between elite I20 asta1.2 petrol &swift desire zxi petrol.

    Debapratim De |01 May,2015 12:40:08 AM

    Swift's 1.2l k series engine feels peppier compared 2 the i20's 1.2 vtvt...dse 2 powertrains look similar on paper..bt in reality swift is a lil quicker nd more fun 2 drive when it comes to petrol..Bt i20 is bigger and much more premium cmpared 2 swift..

    kkkk |15 May,2015 12:56:47 PM

    Ttttttttthh

  • bappa roy |01 May,2015 08:42:52 PM

    Which one is best.

    Amar |03 May,2015 06:09:50 PM

    If you want petrol car then go with Swift, otherwise i20 crdi is the best option

    Siddhant |05 May,2015 06:45:19 PM

    I would say i20 is best.. Not doubt swift is good but its now 10 year old car compared to latest new elite i20...look & comfort matters...

    Debapratim De |11 May,2015 11:36:16 AM

    Yeah...if looks n comfort matters more dn definitly i20..bt sumbody prefers agile driving dyanamics..well,dn swift's petrol one overcasts d vtvt..bt if it doesnt...i20s the best..if u step inside it for once,surely u gonna end up unloading ur wallet :P

    bappa roy |12 May,2015 09:37:41 PM

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    What is the meleage of I20 elite diesel? What is the cost for car services? Is there any issue with Air conditioners in yundai cars?

    Debapratim De |03 Jun,2015 04:50:58 PM

    Say around 16 in cities & 18-20 on the highs..the service cost is nothing abnormally high,jus like any other good diesel cars..the AC is absolutly superb..itz a climate control unit..u jus set ur dzired temp,sit back & indulge urself in luxury...

  • Vasudevan |02 Jun,2015 10:25:01 PM

    Daily I drive 75 km in Chennai city. I use alto petrol. planning to buy diesel. looking dzire, amaze, and i20. but I like i20 most except mileage. any one can say its city mileage pls. If it give 20 kms in city, definitely will buy.

    Debapratim De |03 Jun,2015 04:46:56 PM

    All 3 of d cars are very good..now fact is that,none of dese cars gonna deliver 20kmpl in the cities..marutis 1.3l ddis engine & hondas idtec is a lil more fuel efficient than the crdi.Bt dat is by a very small margin,bt i20 is the most refined & plush...

    Nikul |28 Jul,2015 11:15:29 PM

    Buy liva or etioss cross

  • Sudhanshu Raina |13 Jun,2015 08:58:13 PM

    Swift desire VXI is better or I 20 elite magna?

    Debapratim De |23 Jun,2015 01:16:53 PM

    If u r not dying 2 own a sedan,and not particularly concerned bout milege..dn go for the elite i20..if dse thngz matter,dn go fr d dzire..both of em r good cars bt if u ask me,i wud choose a large premium B segment,than a compact sedan vth a boot snapped.

  • PANKAJ BHATIA |03 Jul,2015 11:42:32 AM

    elite i 20 is good or i 20 active.?? i am intrested in petrol version pls suggest.

    Debapratim De |19 Jul,2015 09:50:14 AM

    Mr Pankaj,i personally feel that d elite is more elegant than d active..active may look a lil more rugged,but d basic metal works r d same..i prsnly hav driven my elite fully loaded on xtmly bad road,nd it dint touch ne of undulatns..so u cn go fr it.....

  • Akshay |06 Jul,2015 09:11:07 PM

  • Akshay |06 Jul,2015 09:13:05 PM

    Debapratim De |19 Jul,2015 09:54:39 AM

    Elite i20 is ac2aly diffrnt,itz bigger than d swift vth lotz of hi end features..u cant really compare it vth swift..d maintaince cost dfintly shud b more but dat is not dat much until u hav got ne parts damaged..coz d parts r really costly..

    pushkar |19 Jul,2015 05:27:59 PM

    Whats the mileage of elite I 20 petrol asta in city..? Does alloy wheels make any difference in mileage?

    Debapratim De |25 Jul,2015 10:55:28 PM

    Expect no more than 14 in city....nd alloy wheels doesnt really make any diffrnce in milege..the 195/55 wheels are really massive nd accentuate d sportiness nd look of d vehicle nd also provide superior grip...

    pushkar |31 Jul,2015 05:59:57 PM

    Thanks for the help..

    Debapratim De |04 Aug,2015 02:01:46 AM

  • sahil |10 Sep,2015 01:37:26 PM

    Which car is the best between elite i20 sports nd polo

    Debapratim De |18 Sep,2015 09:44:11 PM

    both r cars have gr8 & premium interior..i20 overrides d polo in features nd space vhreas polo uses elegant quality plastics nd fit&finish is impecceble..leaving d engine optn aside,i bet u vl like d i20 more dan polo if u r nt dying 2 own a german piece

  • md shish ala |15 Sep,2015 11:23:11 PM

    hi ,i hv planned to bye elite i20 sportz 1.2 petrol becoz less use any body tell me about performance and any issues facing after some times

    Debapratim De |18 Sep,2015 09:39:28 PM

    itz overall a gr8 package..gr8 sense of space,style nd luxury...but d petrol engine lacks punch..if u r relaxed cruiser,itz ok..but if ur an enthusiast u vl gr8ly feel d absence of d punch..

  • Prem Kumar |15 Mar,2016 12:19:57 PM
