Hyundai Motor India today announced that the New-Gen i20 bookings have crossed the 30,000 mark in the country just 40 days since its launch. The South Korean automaker has sold around 20,000 units with 10,000 customers already receiving the hatchback. The All-New Hyundai i20 was launched on 5th November 2020, at a special introductory price of Rs 6.8 lakh (ex-showroom), India. Prices of the recently introduced hatchback could increase in the starting of the new year considering that rivals like Maruti and Kia have already announced it for their existing product portfolio. Competition wise, the i20 goes up against Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Tata Altroz, Honda Jazz, Volkswagen Polo and Toyota Glanza in the domestic market. As per the manufacturer, almost 10 percent of customers have shown a preference for the dual-tone colour option. Thus Fiery Red and Starry Night colour options have emerged as favourite choices for the Indian buyer.
