The third generation Hyundai i20 is all set to go on sale in the country. It was recently spotted at a dealership stockyards. Take a look at the Maruti Baleno rival here
All-new Hyundai i20 will soon so go on sale in the Indian market. The display units of the car have started reaching the dealerships; however, they are still under the wraps. Recently, we came across another set of pictures of the top-spec Asta trim of the all-new i20. It seems like these pictures were clicked from a dealership’s stockyard as some dust is accumulated on the car’s exterior. While the new-gen model is yet to be unveiled in the country, it already is on sale in some international markets. Yes! the India-spec model will come with a few changes. But, not all of them are praiseworthy.
The all-new Hyundai i20 in the international markets gets a set of full-LED headlamps. On the contrary, the India-spec car misses out on them and gets projector headlamps, instead. To measure under 4 meters in length, it will come with slimmer bumpers as well. On the inside, the new-gen i20 will come with an all-digital instrument like the Verna. In the international markets, however, it comes with a 10.25-inch LCD. Apart from these changes, the new-gen model remains identical to the international-spec car. But the presence of a 48-volt mild-hybrid remains a question unanswered.
In the pictures, it can be seen that new-gen Hyundai i20 boasts of a new design for the exterior and interior in contrast to the outgoing model. It now gets bigger and wider cascading grille, which neatly merges into the upswept headlamps. The side profile is now much more elegant, while the rear end feels contemporarily designed with a connected effect for the tail lamps.
In the new-gen iteration, the Hyundai i20 will be offered with three engine options – 1.2L petrol, 1.0L turbo-petrol, and 1.5L diesel. The gearbox options will include a 5-speed MT, 6-speed MT, 6-speed iMT, and 7-speed DCT. Also, it is likely to be priced a little higher than its outgoing model. Once launched, it will continue to rival the likes of Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Tata Altroz, Honda Jazz, Volkswagen Polo and more. As for now, Hyundai is offering massive discounts on the outgoing model to clear the stocks.
