    Among the first in class features, Rear AC vents, Smart key/Push-button start and Chilled glove-box are nice additions.

  5. Nitin says:

    With this launch it would be interesting to see future of i20. I mean in terms of pricing it is above XCent whereas nobody would “downgrade” from a compact sedan to a hatchback.

  6. Dmitry says:

    From the picture of automatic transmission I understood that it has manual mode. Am I correct?
