Korean car manufacturer, Hyundai has steadily climbed the sales charts and is the second largest manufacturer in the country. Hyundai cars in India are known for being robust machines, that come loaded to the gills with features and competent powertrains that match up to the best in the world. With a service network spread covering most of the major cities and towns in the country, it is little wonder to it doing so well in India.

Hyundai elite i20

The company’s premium hatch offering – the i20 has been no different and here’s a list of 10 things you should know on the Hyundai Elite i20 (as it is called now):

1. Hyundai chose to debut the second generation of the car last year here in India, ahead of the rest of the world; thereby showing just how important domestic buyers are to the company.

2. The exterior styling of the car is a major talking point. The second generation has been thoroughly revised by the company and is a far better product than its predecessor in nearly every aspect.

3. The fit and finish levels are among the best in segment and comparable to premium offerings in other markets around the world.

4. The Elite i20 is among the most feature-rich cars in the market today. From offering a cooled glovebox to a fully adjustable steering wheel; parking assistance with reversing camera to dedicated air-conditioning vents and controls for rear-seat passengers – the Elite i20 offers them all.

5. The 1.4 diesel engine is a torque-bomb, with enough power to keep even the most demanding of drivers entertained over a wide range of terrain. Paired to a sure-shifting six-speed manual gearbox, the Elite i20 is one complete package in the powertrain department.

6. Hyundai has however done away with the curtain and side air-bags that it offered in the previous generation.

7. The Elite i20 also has to make do with drum brakes at the rear wheels, where it used to have discs all around before.

8. The car also doesn’t come with auto-locking doors or height adjustable seatbelts – shocking in an otherwise feature-packed car.

9. Typical to all Hyundai’s, this one too is slightly low on the fun-to-drive element unlike some of the competition like the Figo or the Polo GT

10. Lastly, the sloping roof design means that things can get cramped up at the back for taller passengers.

And there you have it, a list of 10 things you should know on the Hyundai Elite i20.
