    Q. Elite i20 or Mahindra Thar which is better?
    • Thar is off-Road SUV . Its abilities are high . It can go on mud , Sand , Water . It can climb hilly terrain. I 20 is a premium hatch back . On good road & highway it is king. But if goes off-road it will need a thar to pull it on road.
    • It depends on your driving preferences. If you want to go offroading obviously you would want to buy thar . but if you are looking for city touring than obviously i20 is your best option.
    • You cannot compare a hatchback with an off-roader. They have different purposes and style

    Q. What is the difference between Sportz and Asta - i20?
    • The Sportz variant gets certain feel-good features that are more want-based rather than need. For example, it gets LED DRLs, keyless entry and steering-mounted controls - features that enhance your overall ownership experience but can possibly live without. This variant, too, misses out on rear parking aids, a feature that has turned into a necessity these days, especially in cities. Also, a variant that’s called Sportz should have at least had alloy wheels. Those who’re willing to pay the premium for Sportz should instead try to stretch their budget and buy the Asta variant. There’s no denying the fact that the Elite i20 Asta is loaded to the gills, getting a huge jump up in terms of equipment over the previous variant. For those looking for the CVT option with petrol engine, the Asta variant costs Rs 1.17 lakh more than the Magna Executive. But the additional features you get in the Asta variant (including all features of the Sportz) justify the premium as well.
    • Sportz concept ?only teo air bags..no iOS fix for child seat...are lacking comparing to other asta ..non sports.rest same
    • There are features diffrence in sportz nd asta,in asta u have Alloys,Rear wiper,auto headlamps,rear seat headrest,armrest,Reverse parking camera with touchscreen,Keyless entry,Projector Headlamps and more

    Q. Should i wait for 3rd gen i20 or buy the current model in September 2019?
    • The 3rd generation Hyundai Elite i20 is expected to debut at the 2020 Auto Expo. It is likely to feature significant updates inside-out. It will be more feature-rich and could pack a sunroof too. You can expect it to come with an eSIM for internet connectivity & more. It is likely to equipped with the Venue’s 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbo-petrol engine. The next-gen Elite i20 is expected to be more spacious than the outgoing model. The current car is quite cramped, especially when compared to rivals like the Honda Jazz and Maruti Suzuki Baleno. Still, if you are willing to purchase the car soon, so you can go for the current one, else wait for the upcoming version.
    • No you should buy 2019 model because you don't think they will make any difference in engine so you will get a great discount if you buy 2019 model
    • I am getting 1.2Lac discount on i20 sports+ then should i wait for next generation or not?
