Next-generation 2020 Hyundai Elite i20 is all set to be unveiled at this year's Geneva Motor Show which is scheduled to be held next month
Hyundai Elite i20 has been one of the best-selling cars of the Indian subsidiary of the South-Korean manufacturer. Even in several global markets, the small car has been dominating the premium-hatchback space for several years. But the i20 is now due for an update, a major one at that. Hyundai has been working over the next-generation of i20 for quite some time now and the pictures of the test mules have been floating all around the internet. However, now, it is finally the time to unveil the car to the masses. The manufacturer will be doing so at the Geneva Motor Show 2020 in March.
The next-gen Elite i20 is all set to be unveiled at upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March.
The 2020 Hyundai Elite i20 will adopt the new ‘Sensuous Sporty’ design theme to feature completely new looks on the outside as well as on the inside. The design sketches revealed by Hyundai suggest that the car will look sharper than the outgoing car. The rear-end of the car will use piano-black plastic inserts to hide the metal bulk like the Altroz. The front-end will be in line with the upcoming Verna facelift. It can be seen in the design sketches that the next-gen i20 will get a new design for the alloys wheels.
The next-gen i20 will be developed right from the ground-up. It will be based on a new platform and will be sold in India with BS-6 engines. It is expected to come with 3 engine options, a 1.2L Kappa petrol, a 1.0L turbo-petrol (as seen on the Grand i10 Nios) and the 1.2L U2 CRDi engine (seen on the Aura). The next-gen i20 is expected to get an option of DCT apart from the 6-speed manual transmission.
2020 Hyundai Elite i20 will be bigger and posher car than the outgoing model.
The 2020 Hyundai Elite i20 is expected to come up as a bigger and more spacious car, thanks to the new platform. It will offer a posher driving experience and will be equipped with a lot more features than the outgoing car. However, there’s not much revealed about the car yet, but Hyundai will be launching it in 2020 itself as the manufacturer will not update the current generation of Elite i20 with a BS6 diesel engine.
