Hyundai Elite i20 User Review Happy on HIghway Car

Hyundai Elite i20 seems to have its focus right, nothing beats the car in premium hatchback segment when it comes to styling, even the Baleno from Maruti Suzuki being sold from their Nexa outlets falls short on stylish looks.

Previous Car

This my 2nd car,  earlier I had Swift Diesel Vdi


Over 5 years clocked around 200000 Kms as I normally travel to my home town in Jaipur every week.

Avg service cost: Rs.5000/service. 3 services in a year

Service interval: 10000 Kms / 1 year whichever is earlier.

Mileage: City – 19 Kmpl. Highway – 20 Kmpl.


Comfort – 4/5 

Performance – 4/5

Safety – 4/5

Style – 3/5  - When compared to Hyundai which can be categorised as modern premium cars, Swift does not have luxury inside, you can say its not too stylish.

Overall - 4/5

Value for money – 5/5 - Thanks to low servicing cost and good resale value of Maruti cars and particulary the Swift which gave me a good resale.

When I was in the market for a new car. I was actively considering diesel cars namely; Honda City, Hyundai Verna and Elite i20

Honda City – Because of the price, I wanted a diesel car, at that time City diesel price was around 12 lacs much above my budget. Same goes for Verna too, for which the  diesel variant was priced around 12.5 Lacs.

What I love about my Hyundai Elite i20

I like the interiors if you see the dashboard its better than other cars in its segment. If you compare my Elite i20 with Dzire it's dashboard is not so premium. Elite i20 plastic is bit more glossy and does not look too old. Compare to Swift even though I have been driving Elite i20 for last 30 months the inside body does not look old.

Comfort - Leg space in the car as compared to Swift it better and while driving one feels more relaxed as I drive a lot and feel less tired even after driving 300 Kms from Jaipur to Delhi. Even my wife and daughter feels comfortable in this car. My daughter says 'Papa Elite i20 Le chalo Swift Dzire Nahi'.

Overall look of the car is good, back light looks like a pistol when lit. Rear light looks quite similar to Audi Q3.

In this segment Elite i20 design, lights and interiors were the reason I bought this car.

In this car when I compare it with my family's Swift Dzire, 3 people can easily sit in row 2, whereas in my Dzire they used to feel cramped.

What I don’t like about my Hyundai Elite i20

While the company claims a mileage of 23.4 Kmpl however I get much lower mileage than that. When I take Dzire to Jaipur its Mileage is better than Elite i20, even though difference in mileage is not much but still it’s around 1-2 km per litre.

Service cost is comparably higher than even my Swift Dzire. At Rs.18000-20000 per year it does work out costly.  I have heard that even Altis can be serviced for as low as 3500-4000/service.

Highway Experience

Even when I go to 120 Kmph on highway the car does not vibrate and feels in control, however the Dzire vibrates at higher speed.


Nice car, fantastic interiors and good design, value for money.


Service cost needs to be looked at when compared other cars.
