This version of the i20 is on its own

Those who want an automatic hatchback should thank Hyundai’s export commitments. Because they produce the automatic versions of the i10 and i20 for other countries, they pass along some to the Indian market as well. Otherwise where do you go if you want an automatic hatchback? Maruti Suzuki had the Wagon R AT, but the nation’s largest carmaker doesn’t think giving automatic small cars to Indians is worth their while. So if you want one, you have the choice of two cars, depending on your budget.

The i20 comes with a four-speed automatic that sends power from a bigger 1396cc inline-four to the front wheels. (So no excise duty benefits for the AT customer to help cut this car’s huge price-tag – it retails at Rs 7.84 lakh in Mumbai). The gearbox would sap all the effort of the smaller 1.2 motor in the heavier i20 anyway.

I still wish all car manufacturers should produce a base version in auto transmission of all their models at least by pre - order booking, so the price will not be high and all can have the luxury of driving a auto geared car.

With Same value you can go for SX4 Automatic. Its good value for money. Also for tall guys it is very comfortable.

Ah! At last! Great that you guys are perhaps the first to review this car...that sounds pretty disappointing for such an expensive thing. It's almost as if Hyundai are bending backwards to see that most buyers will be put off! Strange indeed...I guess I'll have to wait for the Polo 1.6 Automatic, but going by the general opinion about the Vento Auto, it'd perhaps be an equally damp squib. So where do I go from here? Wait for the Micra CVT or is a used Honda City Auto possibly available under 8 lakhs in Pune? Doc

How can you guys forget the newly launched A-star automatic??

Bunty, the story appeared in BS Motoring July issue before the A-Star Automatic went on sale. Which is why the reference.
