Waiting for my Sparkle i


Yesterday I just ordered my new car after that the one I had was totalled by a Honda Civic! (find a pic of my totalled car after the break).

The new car that I ordered is a Hyundai i20 Comfort in a bright Sparkle Blue colour. It has the smallest 1.2 ltr petrol engine, 6 airbags, ac, ABS with EBD, electric mirros, Radio CD Mp3 player with 6 speakers, Aux + USB port, Steering Audio Controls, Alarm, Trip Computer, and much more. I only have one problem…. I need to wait 71 days for it to arrive to Malta!!! 🙁 But I think it will be worth it!! 🙂

Here are some reviews of the i20.

“It was unveiled recently at the Paris auto show amid much fanfare. The success of Hyundai’s large hatchback, the i30, has people all over the world looking forward to the i20. The 2525mm wheelbase coupled with front MacPherson strut and rear torsion beam suspension promises appreciable space on the inside.”

“Now, pop inside. The first impression is packed with ‘Wow!-factor’. The bold sweep of grown-up dashboard houses neat dials and an even neater centre stack, with easy to read graphics and the tightest of trim shut-lines. Obtaining a good seating position is easy thanks to a wide range of seat base and in/out-up/down steering column adjustment. What’s more, the seats are supremely comfortable, supportive and luxuriously trimmed (part-leather on Style; two-tone cloth on Comfort; single contrasting colour on Classic). The stalk controls and switchgear feel substantial and expensive. In fact, the overall impression of the interior is that it smacks of the highest VW-grade quality, minus the all-pervading blandness. “

“For safety, Hyundai has used high-tensile steel in the chassis, provided six airbags – front, side and curtain – fitted as standard, active headrests, front seatbelt pretensioners and latest generation ABS anti-lock brakes, ESP electronic stability control, EBD Electronic Brakeforce Distribution.  We aren’t sure how many of these safety features will make it to the Indian market, though.

Along with the usual features, Hyundai is also offering tyre pressure monitoring system, Isofix mounting points in the rear and seatbelt reminders for all five occupants, 40:60 split flat-folding rear bench with a low lip, 295-litre rear loadbay, a large cooled passenger glovebox, a reach-and-rake adjustable steering wheel complete with integrated audio controls and an unlimited mileage three-year warranty.”
