      Hyundai i20 Diesel, now with 6 gears!


      Adds two new variants – Era and Sportz

      New Delhi, April 7, 2010: Following the phenomenal success of the i20, Hyundai Motor India Ltd, the largest exporter and the second largest car manufacturer in India, today launched its latest model – the all new i20, a premium compact car for discerning Indian customers.
      In addition to the existing models, the all new i20 will be available in two new variants – the Era and the Sportz. These variants of the award-winning compact car come with several new technology rich features which enhance its styling and also improve the fuel consumption. The Era has been introduced with both the petrol and diesel engine as the price leading variant while the Sportz will bridge the price and feature gap between the Magna and Asta.
      Commenting on the launch, H W Park, Managing Director & CEO, HMIL, said, “We are pleased to announce the launch of the i20 with new features and two new additional variants. While the variants are targeted at our customers who have different needs, the new features will help improve the i20 and make it even more desirable for our customers. We are confident that with the new features and additional variants the i20 will become even more attractive and set new benchmark for this class of cars with improved styling, unique features and conformity with global safety standards.”
      The all new i20 comes loaded with many smart features. It is the first in its segment to have six-speed manual transmission gears in the diesel variant. The additional sixth gear will facilitate smooth and fuel efficient driving, making highway driving seem like a cruise. The sixth gear will also enable low rpm operation of the engine, making the i20 diesel more fuel-efficient and leading to a lower NVH (Noise, Vibration & Harshness) and lesser wear and tear of the engine.
      The all new i20 is the first-in-the-segment to have technology innovations like manual transmission shift indicators (diesel variant) an innovative gear prompt for the driver to change gears, leading to maximum fuel economy.

      The all new i20 design philosophy follows the brand's new identity. From the front grille to the enhanced interiors the styling is modern and reflective of current global trends. On the exterior it features all new Chrome Radiator Grille and outside rear view mirrors with integrated
      turn indicators while on the inside it features blue LED interior illumination, silver centre fascia and chrome finish on inside door locks. The other new features that have been added to make the car more appealing are Fully Automatic Temperature Control (FATC) system and in-built USB port (in Magna) and several other attractive features like a burglar alarm, steering wheel with audio remote and passenger vanity mirror (in Sportz and Asta).
      Hyundai is synonymous with world-class safety and low emission cars and the all new i20 debuts with the latest BS IV compliance. The vehicle also offers increased fuel economy across the entire range, which will translate into greater savings on fuel costs. As per the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI), the all new i20 petrol version (1.2 Kappa) is capable of delivering a mileage of 18.15 km/litre and the diesel variant (1.4 CRDi) can deliver a mileage of 21.93 km/litre which makes it highly fuel-efficient and economical to drive. Both the petrol and the diesel variant will comply with the recently introduced BS IV emission norms.
      Designed for the ‘Uber Cool” auto enthusiasts, the new variants of the all new i20 will go up for sale immediately and the prices (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the Era variant starts at Rs. 451,816 while as the Sportz, positioned between the Magna and the Asta will be priced at Rs. 531,817.

      I think this is a good move on Hyundai to get these 2 variants out. With competition hotting after Figo and Polo arrived, things are getting interesting.

      I doubt that just a remap will be able to get the i20 going that fast. It ain't all that powerful and not exactly light either. Besides that, im guessing the top speed will be achieved only in 5th gear, and the 6th probably just used to cruise around on the highways.

      But its great that the i20 is taking the hatchback segment to a new level.. First with 6airbags, sunroof, the CRDi engine and now this.

      This is the sad part about Hyundai. They are never vocal about their upgrades. The extra gear makes all the difference. If I had known, I would've waited for this. Feel like kicking myself now.
