New Car first Impressions

By Gagandeep Chhabra on 17 January 2011

After a lot of deliberation, I finally made up my mind to go for i20.
I have had first hand experience on its younger sibling the i10, and was satisfied with the fuel efficiency, comfort, looks and Hyundai's ASS.
The other contenders were Ford Figo(close call) and VW Polo.
The Figo had the game tilted in its favour as in amlost the same price, you could buy a Diesel car with proven engine, however, a question mark on Ford's ASS, and low resale value stopped me. Also I dont clock more than 600 km a month, so diesel would really not make that much economic sense.
VW is a premium brand and quite easily the best built car, however VW doen't give you even half the features and I found the engine (1.2 L) quite Noisy inside the cabin.
i20 has a clean cabin design, good upmarket feel to it (inside and outside) and good space at the back.
The drive so far has been good comforable one and I have a peace of mind when I think of it as a long term investment. Lets keep fingers crossed.
