The third generation of the Hyundai i20 is finding quite a great number of takers despite being on the pricier side
Hyundai launched the third generation I-20 about three weeks ago on November 5. The premium hatchback from the Korean manufacturer competes against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Toyota Glanza, Tata Altroz, Volkswagen Polo, and Honda Jazz here. Albeit I-20 has been one of the top sellers in the segment for the last 5 years.
Hyundai has given the third generation I-20 a complete make-over inside out. The all-new too has become a game-changer for Hyundai in the premium hatchback segment here and the manufacturer has announced that the car crossed 20000 bookings in just three weeks time and 4000 cars already been delivered during the Diwali season, which exemplifies the popularity the I-20 has.
