      Hyundai i20 uses, EPS (Electric power steering) - Electric power steering works with the help of an Electric Motor and a control unit which has some sensors.

      In addion i20 comes with NFB steering (No-Feed Back) - NFB units that are designed to eliminate torque feedback.

      AFAIK - Hyundai Getz uses hydraulic power steering. And I don't think its possible to change hydraulic to EPS as it will require changes to ECU and entire stearing system.

      Strange it is not mentioned on Getz's Website

      http://www.carazoo.com/newcars/carre...dai/Getz_Prime

      Powertrain & Performance

      The new Getz Prime is still available with the existing 1.3-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine that produces a liberal 82 bhp of peak power and 116 Nm of maximum torque. However, it has also been launched with the 1.1-litre eRLX engine that is available only in Santro Xing.

      Hyundai has modified the 1.1-litre eRLX engine to improve its performance. This engine in the Santro Xing develops 63 bhp of peak power while in the Getz, it offers 66 bhp of power at 5,500 rpm and the peak torque is also a decent 102 Nm at 3,200 rpm. It also provides quick, smooth acceleration and easy motoring, up to 130 km per hour. The recently introduced Getz Prime diesel variant comes more powerful with a 1.5-liter common rail direct injection turbo charged engine. It generates 108 bhp of maximum power at 4000 rpm and 235 Nm of maximum torque at 2750 rpm.

      The eRLX still features technologies such as the rotary heard intelligent valve actuator (RHiA), fuel quality immuniser, real-time intelligent ignition and ultra-low friction piston rings. The 1.3-litre engine is aimed at those who want performance and space but do not want to compromise with the looks of the car. The 1.1-litre petrol engine also offers the same amount of space but at a lesser price; its biggest advantage is its cost-effectiveness. It comes with a 5-speed manual transmission which is quiet and dependable. The new 1.5-liter engine is for those who prefer a diesel variant.

      The all-new Getz Prime comes with a five-speed gearbox, but the gear ratios have been changed in fourth and fifth, for quicker response. The car comes with double action hydraulic shock absorbers in the front and gas shock absorbers in the rear, which make driving on tough roads easier. It also uses power-assisted hydraulic steering wheel that makes in-city driving convenient. However, with all the changes in engine and various factors guiding performance, the fuel efficiency of the Getz Prime is likely to be lower than that of the Santro Xing.

      The getz crdi is hydraulic. i20 is EPS. Why would you want to get an EPS on the getz? The getz steering is fairly heavy and responds well unlike the vague i20 steering.

      I dont understand the logic behind this exercise.

      Umm.. don't think the getz ever came with a EPS - check your engine manual. I am pretty sure all Getz variants have a Hydraulic power steering. And mine (Getz CRDi) has pretty good road feedback too when I had 195/55 R15 - and it is not all that bad with the current 185/65 R14 setup either.
