Have you been waiting for the next-gen Hyundai car in the Indian markets? If yes, then now is the time to plan for your drive because the Korean major is planning to launch its BS6 compliant all new Hyundai i20 around mid of this year (Aug 2020).
The third gen i20 is expected to hit the markets with its power packed features, ravishing looks & competitive pricing.
The first gen i20 made its debut in India back in 2008 followed by the second gen i20 in the year 2014. Now, with its upcoming 2020 variant the brand is certainly looking forward to win millions of India hearts once again in its premium hatchback segment space.
Let’s see what the upcoming i20 has in for offering.
Hyundai i20 specifications:
The car will sport three engine options in the Indian market:
- 1.5-litre CRDI diesel with 6 speed gear box shall generate a max power output of 100bhp & 244Nm of torque, this is an upgrade from its previous 1.4-litre U2 CRDI diesel engine.
- 1.0-litre, 3 cylinder turbocharged petrol engine which is a new option; the motor can produce 99bhp of power & deliver 118 Nm of torque & finally
- A 1.2-liter, 4 cylinder petrol engine which is the most economical option which can clock 83bhp & 113Nm torque.
The design identity of the 2020 Hyundai i20 is called sensuous sportiness which indeed is very sporty with its dual tone body. While the front and sides of the car is more dynamic and edgy the rear looks wider-thanks to the combination tail lights running across the breadth of the hatch. The front of the car looks very sharp & focused with those wide LED DRLs & at the back the angular Z shaped LED tail lights looks rather stunning, the car comes with alloy wheels which is again very prominent & leaves a strong impression on the passersby.
The interior of the car compliments the overall outside makeover of the car and continues to speak the same sporty design language. The digital information cluster & infotainment cluster looks modern & big for that effortless ease of navigation & as usual the car may come loaded with features like wireless charging, 6 airbags, ABS, Cruise control, Bose speakers & much more.
Expected Price of Hyundai i20:
The expected base variant will cost around Rs. 5.5 Lakhs & will go up to Rs. 8.5 lakhs for the top end diesel variant (ex- showroom) & the on-road price will vary from state to state in India.
The Hyundai i20 since its inception has received phenomenal response from the Indian market & with the upcoming launch of its third-gen soon, we will see if the legacy continues.
