The Hyundai i20 was launched today and prices started at ₹ 6.80 lakh and the premium hatchback comes with a lot more tech and of course powertrain options. The Hyundai i20 is available in 4 variants – Magna, Sportz, Asta and Asta (O) and in 3 engine options. It's probably because of the magnitude of choice that is on offer, the company has received more than 10,000 bookings for the car till date. The company had kick started bookings for the i20. In just 9 days the company has received these bookings and the numbers are certainly encouraging.
Given that the i20 is launched ahead of the festive season, it becomes extremely important for the company to get such numbers because, that is effectively a boost in terms of sales. The i20 has been a strong seller for the company, and the new generation looks to add more value to the customers. The company has already announced that it will have the lowest cost of ownership in the segment, a claim that we wait to hear from people who buy the car.
