Hyundai Elite i20 bags 12,000 bookings in India

Hyundai`s new offering the Elite i20 has managed to wow the Indian consumers. The car has managed to get 12,000 bookings in just 15 days. This is no mean feat considering the competition the Elite i20 has in the form of Volkswagen`s Polo, Fiat`s Punto and the popular swift.

The older i20 was doing okay, but then Hyundai decided to bring in the Elite i20 which is much better than its predecessor. The older car had good interiors, class leading space and features, but the Elite i20 raises the bar and sets a new benchmark with regards to interior space, features and equipment. The Elite i20 is gorgeous to look at and is loaded with features. Most of the leading auto journalists predicted that the car would set the sales charts on fire.
