Ahead of its global debut next week, Hyundai has officially unveiled the interior details and features of the next-gen i20
The 2020 Hyundai i20 is about to have its global debut at the upcoming 2020 Geneva Motor Show. The South Korean manufacturer is slowly building up anticipation among its audience by slowly revealing all the details. Previously, the company had has revealed the exterior of the car, and now we have the interior details as well.
2020 Hyundai i20 interior looks extremely premium
The biggest highlight of the next-gen i20’s interior is the 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, as opposed to the conventional dials on the outgoing model. The cluster can also change colours according to the selected drive mode. You have green, blue, and orange, for Eco, Normal, and Sports modes, respectively. Other than that, there is a leather-wrapped steering wheel with integrated controls for audio and cruise control, in a fashion similar to the upcoming Hyundai Creta.
As for the design, the new-generation model is a far cry from the plain, rather boring, interior of the current i20. The centre console is quite sharp-looking, with the 10.25-inch infotainment system jutting upwards from the centre console and integrating into the instrument console housing. Below that are the front AC vents, with neatly flowing horizontal lines running across the dashboard from one end to the other. The car boasts Apple Carplay, Android Auto, and Hyundai Bluelink Telematics connectivity, along with a premium eight-speaker Bose audio system, a wireless charging pad, multiple USB ports, automatic climate control, and ambient lighting. There will be three options for the interior schemes - Black, Black/Grey(Dual-tone), and Yellow/Green.
The international version will have bigger dimensions than the India-spec model
As reported earlier, the dimensions of the upcoming model will be longer than the Elite i20 currently on sale in India. Its length is 4,040 mm, width is 1,750 mm and height is 1,450 mm. The wheelbase of the car will be 2,580 mm long. To fall in the sub-4-metre tax bracket, the India-spec version will be slightly shorter in length.
Powering the next-gen Hyundai i20 will be three engine options- a 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol, a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel, and a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbo-petrol. While the first two will be the updated versions of the motors powering the outgoing model, the last one is a new powerplant. It is borrowed from the Aura/Venue, and is available in two states of tune (100PS/172 Nm and 120 PS/172 Nm). Upon launch, the car will compete against the likes of Maruti Baleno, Toyota Glanza, Honda Jazz, and Tata Altroz.
