Ownership Review: i20 Magna (O)

Recommended Posts

Hi, Our i20 has completed 1 year just few days ago. So before starting the review I am going to write a bit as to how we narrowed down on this.

Search Begins - At first we had a budget of 5lacs but then we thought its not sufficient. Then we increased it to 6lacs. Then we shortlisted the listed cars - Hyundai i20, Maruti Swift, VW Polo, Toyota liva. After taking TD we had came to conclusion to buy the Hyundai i20 because its features, space and Comfortable ride. Booked on 15sept 2012. Waiting Period was not much long. Just a few days. Got the delivery on 18th sept. We found the Hyundai dealer very good and friendly. The Freebies we got are - 1.Mats 2. Mud flaps 3. Pen drive 4. Some DVDs and 5. Leather Seatcovers.

Driving Experience

Ride and handling – Its ride is very smooth with a very light handle helps easy manouvering in the city. The highway driving is not that good. But its good at 80-100 after crossing 100 the steering feels like holding nothing.

Space - The space in is great. The Front legroom is very good. And at the rear is same. Its very comfortable inside.

Engine –It comes with a 1.2 litre VTVT petrol engine. Its very silent. Its soo silent that sometimes our car is started and my dad is starting is again and again. Then he says something is wrong with the car.

Now, Check some pics of our car.

Hi lxtreme,

Nice pics. The car is well maintained. I think just the number plate is scratched. You should change it. Do post more pics of your car.

Congrats on the car ,it looks great!!!

Magna O is the most popular option in the i-Gen i20 and it covers most of the must-haves like ACC,Electric fold mirror,music system etc .

It misses out on spilt rear seats/alloys/ABS/airbags and different steering wheel. One of my relatives have the same car in bronze and he is satisfied.

Ps- I really hate the rain visor it spoils the look of the car.

Thanks rssh. Yes the magna O is a popular version bcoz its got everything a customer would want from a car like this. And the rain visors really spoils the look but its important in The north east region. Bcoz here the rainfall is a bit higher than that of other regions.

Now thats a well maintained car! :) Any ICE upgrades / alloys planned? B)

Thank Bhavneet. I am thinking of the alloys but I want some exclusive alloys not available in the stores but I have ordered one.

Thanks Adv_martand. I got a decent FE os 12 on city and 16-17 on Highways normal driving at 70-80. Maintainance fee is 2000+ something like that. And the steering is perfect, nothing is rattling till now. And I think Hyundai had solved the rattling problem in the new i20.
