Hyundai has launched the new i20 in India. The price of the new i20 starts at INR 6.79 lakh (ex-showroom) for the base Magna trim and goes all the way up to INR 11.17 lakh (ex-showroom) for the Asta (O) trim. It is to be noted that these are the introductory prices which will remain valid only until 31 December 2020.
The third-gen Hyundai i20 is being offered with two petrol and one diesel engine options in India. There’s a 1.0L turbo petrol which churns out 120 PS and 171 Nm with either the 6-speed iMT or 7-speed DCT. The new i20’s 1.2L naturally aspirated petrol engine produces 83 PS with the MT and 88 PS with the IVT. It generates 114 Nm of peak torque. The last engine option is the 1.5L diesel that is capable of delivering 100 PS and 240 Nm. It is available with only the 6-speed MT.
The ARAI claimed mileage for the 1.2-litre petrol engine is 20.35kpl with the manual gearbox and 19.65kpl with the CVT auto box, while the 1.0-litre turbo petrol returns 20.25kpl with the DCT gearbox and 20kpl with the iMT. The 1.5-litre diesel manual has a claimed fuel efficiency figure of 25.2kpl.
The 2020 Hyundai i20 is a major step up from its predecessor in every aspect. It features totally revised styling. It imparts a bolder and futuristic look to the car. The front end flaunts the parametric jewel pattern grille along with the new set of LED projector headlamps. This combination ensures that a balance between sportiness and elegance is maintained.
The side profile of the new Hyundai i20 is kept busy by the gorgeous diamond-cut alloy wheels. Also, the chrome beltline helps the car to keep the premium-ness intact. Hyundai has ensured that the new i20 is as good-looking at the rear as it is at the front. We have a pair of Z-shaped LED taillamp clusters that are connected together via a horizontal chrome strip. This treatment also makes the new hatchback look wider.
Hyundai has packed the new i20 to the brim with features. The top-spec Asta (O) trim gets a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Hyundai’s ‘BlueLink’ connected car features. This trim also gets a digital instrument cluster, a 7 speaker Bose sound system, sunroof, a wireless phone charger, ambient lighting and much more.
The new i20 also gets a number of safety features, including 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability control, vehicle stability management and hill start assist, to name a few.
Hyundai is also offering the premium hatchback with up to 5 years warranty with its ‘Wonder’ warranty package, along with 3 years of roadside assistance (RSA), and a 3-year subscription to its BlueLink connected tech.
