Hyundai i20 Asta Petrol Road test

13 Dec

I test drove the Hyundai i20 Asta Petrol for a friend last week. Basically, he is in search of his next car which is basically a hatch upgrade. At the moment he’s driving a Fiat Palio and obviously he wants something better than that.

What’s good?

  • Loads of features (Electrically foldable ORVMs, Multi-display, Good looking alloys, ABS, Airbags etc)
  • Good passenger head/shoulder room
  • Good gears and drives like a bigger car
  • Decent brakes and ABS is effective
  • 295L of boot space – probably near best in the class
  • Tilt and telescopic steering
  • Cooled glove box

What’s bad?

  • Over pricing (30-40K overpriced)
  • Bad suspension (and hence the ground clearance feels even lower)
  • Coffee-coloured plastics (heard they are changing it soon)
  • Cheap looking multi display
  • Bad spring action on steering
  • Ineffective a/c
