    Recently Asked User Questions

    Q. Confused between Honda Amaze CVT and Hyundai i20 CVT. Budget is 10 lakh.
    • Both i20 CVT Sporta/Asta as well as Honda Amaze V CVT( prefer this over SCVT as it has 15 inch alloy wheels and will give you smoother and comfortable ride over bumpy roads) I would vote for V CVT instead of I20 for 2 reasons:1) Drive comfort and smoothness - is way ahead of Hyundai i202) Boot is 420 litres -- even if you do add CNG later - you have a lot of space left to use for luggatei20 -- is also a very powerful car - though the handling is a bit rough - but you won't get much space left if you add a CNG down the line.Both are good for long drives. if well maintained , would easily last you 10 years.
    Q. Which one is better i20 or amaze?
    • Both the cars belongs to different segments. Hyundai Elite i20 is hatchback while Honda Amaze is compact sedan. On one hand, the Honda Amaze makes a pretty serious case for itself as the choice for customers in the compact sedan segment. It’s unique design, spacious interiors, premium features, excellent ride-and-handling qualities and, very importantly, the brilliant diesel engine coupled to the equally brilliant first-in-segment CVT, make it highly attractive. Honda has also promised a premium ownership experience without the costs involved. On the other hand, the Elite i20 has stood the test of time and the facelift does just enough to keep the it relevant in a highly competitive segment. The new i20 features a few changes but is essentially still the same car with slightly improved driving dynamics. So if you’re looking for a frugal yet youthful family hatch, the i20 is still a viable option. To wrap up, buying one will depends on your requirement, if you need a compact-seda with added boot space then opt for Honda Amaze. Otherwise, go for Hyundai Elite i20.

    • Elite i20 is a good car, very good comfort level, good build quality materials used inside & outside of car but need to compromise with mileage of petrol i20. One thing is sure once you enter inside of car & drive it, you feel premium car like Audi driving experience. Performance wise car takes times to get pick up in 2nd gear, It easily go 60 - 100 km without any extra efforts very smoothly. Need to say if you are looking for premium class with good comfort can go blindly with i20 but mileage wise slightly slow compare to any Maruti vehicles... What else to say further.... As i have Elite i 20 Asta O Petrol 2017 model and driving busy Bangalore city traffic gets around 11 -12 km in city & highway around 16 - 18 km depends on driving pattern. You can easily get around 17 km with smooth driving on highway & 12 km in city with full time Ac. Even i gets same till now. Maintenance come around 5- 7 thousands with service interval 10000 km
    • I20 is one of the car in the market leading with sales about 9000 to 11000+Vehicles per month. It leads the market with Hatchback segment. If you wish to buy A hatchback this is best buy .However Baleno and honda jazz you can compare with these vehicles ..Regarding Honda amaze is a Compact sedan with best in class features it is now second larger sold vehicle in the segment . both vehicles are good vehicles. Amaze is a practical family car. I20 is good in City ride. .

    Q. I am confuse between Honda Amaze and Hyundai i20?
    • You don't have to be confused about the two cars you had mentioned, what is that you want ? in your car, Amaze has a dicky space for carrying luggage. In the case of I 20 it's hatch back and space constraint is there int he dicky. Looking at resale value and driveability of the car , the i 20 is worth the investment.
    • Amaze anytime. Very practical car. Sedan with a proper boot for those family trips. Powerful yet fuel efficient engine. Spacious and ergonomic interiors. Powerful ac. And backed by Honda peace of mind (after sales service) .
