I like the little car. It reminds me of the old Ford Fiesta, they sold in the UK when we lived there.
Do you like me find it strange when companies completely change the look of a car? new engine body shape and yet still call a car by the same name, a case in point is the Fiesta you mentioned looks nothing like the new model inside or out yet still called a Fiesta personally don't get it at all what do you think?

by how gear changes sound, do you think is an Auto?
Nah, she's definitely manual. Listen to it closely from the 2 minute mark when you can actually hear the slower gear changes properly (sounds like the test pilot is flat-changing on the track). This is probably the best video of the i20N to date, great to see it getting absolutely totally flogged with severe tyre howl and all.

And is that the face-lifted i30N I spy on it's tail at 1:01??

Ditto ^ definitely a manual gearbox. This one with production parts.:)
Based upon our experience with the Kia Soul Gt-Line 1.6T Gamma II engine, the i20N will be a little rocket ship in comparison. The Soul GT-Line moves on rather quickly and does really well with fuel economy. We' re averaging 33-35 mpg in normal city and rural driving. We haven't had it on the long haul as of yet but are expecting nearer 37 -39 mpg at normal highway speeds. :)
