      Ownership Report: Hyundai i20 Petrol

      I got delivery of I20 on April 2nd. Surprisingly I got this new version on Petrol. The inner display in blue is really cool. Chrome colored integrated audio system is better than dark one in earlier version. 6th Gear & Gear Shift indicator is available only in Diesel version. They should have provided atleast gear shift indicator in Petrol version as well.

      This is my first car. I did lot of analysis for more than a year and finally narrowed to India Vista (my wife's choice) and I20 (my choice). I somehow convinced her by explaining about the features & comfort available with Hyundai.

      Regarding the dealers, I had bitter experience with Advaith (ORR) where the salesman did not explain me well about the features and offers available. Then went to Trident (Indiranagar) who was very friendly and explained me each and every feature available. I took 2 test drives and he was ready to give me more tries. At that time I went to test drive & my visits to showroom, old models were only available with Red displays.

      My first experience with Hyundai I20 Petrol

      The delivery of my vehicle got delayed as they mentioned that due to water wash. So I took it at around 8:30 pm on Good Friday. As it was my first car, I was bit scared to driver in Bangalore traffic. Started driving it with Parking Breaks ON!!!!!. Car was smooth on 1st gear but soon when I changed to 2nd gear, it did not move. After driving around 2.5 kms I noticed that Hand breaks was on.

      After putting hand break down, the drive was really good. Gear shift was smooth and I liked the ALL blue display inside the car. Its very pleasant. 2nd & 3rd gear drive is very smooth when compared to 1st gear.
      While am inside the car, I feel its a big car due to seat comfort and ambiance.

      After driving my car for more than 2 weeks (560kms) , now I feel very much comfortable with it and its handy in traffic as well as peppy in highways. I have not took it for long drive outside bangalore. Will add my experience once I have one.

      Do pour in your views about the AC performance, especially at the rear. Since the interiors have changed, can you pls post some pics. Thanks
