Hyundai Motor India on Monday announced that its latest offering in the market - the i20 2020 - has received a solid response and has received 30,000 bookings in the 40 days since its official launch on November 5. The new i20 comes with a whole lot of changes - from exterior design and cabin comfort to multiple engine and transmission options and a packed feature list.

The new i20 has fared strongly in its initial few weeks and while it has a rather premium price tag, its mile-long list of updates and upgrades may have struck a chord with prospective buyers and hence the booking figures are as they are. "We are delighted to receive around 30 000 bookings for the all-new i20," said Tarun Garg, Director - Sales, Marketing and Service - at Hyundai India.
