Who wouldn’t love to buy the latest trending car, especially when we are now being allowed to travel a bit out of our homes after the grilling eight months of coronavirus lockdown?
Interestingly, Hyundai i20 2020 has made a mind-blowing record of 20,000 bookings in the last 20 days, said the company in an announcement to the media on Friday. Please note that the rocking third-generation i20 was just launched when November 2020 started at a cool price point of Rs. 6.79 lakhs. The car has now come in direct competition with premium models like Tata Altroz and Maruti Suzuki Baleno.
Hyundai announced in its statement to the media that it has received a tremendous response to the latest i20 and that more than 4,000 customers took delivery of the vehicle this Diwali season. The company is thrilled with the customer’s continued affinity to connected technologies offered by them.
So now let’s understand the features of the new Hyundai i20. It has multiple engine (petrol and diesel) options as well as transmission options like manual, IVT, DCT, and a segment-first iMT. The decision to grant the car with a 1.0 turbo petrol has also found appreciation and loyalty by the customers.
Compared to the previous Elite i20, the new model stands higher at 3995 mm, wider at 1775 mm, while the height remains unchanged at 1505 mm. The company has also extended the wheelbase of the car by 10 mm at 2580 mm. Overall, the new i20 has gained in dimensions making it look somewhat larger against the model it succeeds.
So, do these features prompt you to make a new car purchase? Well, as there are certain restrictions placed on air and train travel due to the pandemic situation, traveling in a car to your favorite location with your family or friends or loved ones isn’t a bad idea.
