Hyundai Elite i20 sees overwhelming response before launch
Hyundai Elite i20 is launching in less than two days and response for the first generation i20 replacement is pretty overwhelming. We spoke to dealers in New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Bengaluru, and they reported that numerous enquiries are made by potential customers everyday for second generation i20.
Thus far, from many spyshots surfaced online, it is safe to assume that people know to an extent what the Elite i20 is like and what all it is loaded with. So it might mean that the design, features and overall package of second generation i20 are appreciated by the target audience and the new premium hatchback is on its way to becoming a grand success for Hyundai.
It is known that older version of Hyundai i20 was received very well and competed closely with Maruti Suzuki Swift. Although new facelift cars like Volkswagen Polo and Fiat Punto EVO are launched recently, Hyundai Elite i20 seems to be trending high. It may be fortunate for the South Korean manufacturer that Maruti Swift facelift would be launching only by November 2014, nevertheless, Swift is still the bestseller in segment. We are yet to see if Hyundai Elite i20 can change that.
