Hyundai i20: Reasons To Buy

Built as a super-mini car marketed by Hyundai; a South Korean corporation and been into manufacturing from 2008; Hyundai i20 had successfully launched its debut at Motor Show of Paris in the year 2008 and comes between both models of i10 and i30. Available in both five and three door version, the vehicle is a front-wheel drive. The vehicle will successfully drive away the model Getz in nearly all the markets in the year 2011. The model plant was set up at Turkey for the whole of Europe market and for Oceania and Asian countries a plant in India was setup.

Reason behind the Decline:

The i20 has not been sold in America and South Korea. The model i20 was later in 2012 discontinued in market of Indonesia as the reason behind the drop of its sale due to the entry of Grand Avega or Accent.
