  • Good Question, I went for i20 launch and had asked the same question to MD HMIL, he said the Diesel is costly + automatic will be more costly, so the overall price may be quite high for a hatchback, though he didnt rule out that they will not launch such a vehicle in the future.

    My take, it will take some time for i20 CRDI to come in AT.

    For your needs, you can look for Verna which is available with Automatic Transmission,after this the next range of diesel cars are around 15 L plus other than Mahindra Scorpio.
