As the festive season is getting close, car manufacturers are gearing up toward launching their new vehicles. One of the most anticipated launches this Diwali is the new-gen Hyundai i20. Ahead of the launch, the Hyundai i20 has been spotted on several occasions. From the latest test mule spy pictures, we are given some new details of the upcoming Hyundai i20.
Hyundai i20 Turbo DCT was spotted during testing
On the newest spy shots, the Hyundai i20 was carefully camouflaged except for the front bumper. It appears that the India-spec i20 will feature a similar bumper design used on the outgoing international version. Based on the international-spec model, we can expect the India-spec Hyundai i20 to come with a sharper and more aggressive look. On the front end, the global-spec Hyundai i20 gets LED headlights, LED Daytime Running lamps and Elantra-inspired foglight housing. Along with these new additions, the roofline is lowered and the width is increased in order to attain a plusher appearance. Apart from the regular version, Hyundai has also worked on the N Line variant of the Hyundai i20. For those who don’t know, the N Line trim is dedicated for the sportier versions of Hyundai’s models.
It is suggested that the Hyundai i20 in question is powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged GDI engine. This engine is paired to a 7-speed DCT gearbox. The same powertrain can be found on the Hyundai Verna and Venue. On the Verna and the Venue, the same engine can deliver two states of tunes, 99 Bhp and 118 Bhp of maximum power. However, it remains unknown which version will make it to the new Hyundai i20. Regardless of the power specs, the torque figure stays at 172 Nm. This engine will surely make the upcoming Hyundai i20 a desirable vehicle in terms of performance.
Next-gen Hyundai i20 will launch during the festive season
Along with the turbocharged petrol engine, the Hyundai i20 will also come with a 1.2-litre Kappa engine and a 1.5-litre diesel engine. While the 1.2-litre petrol engine will come with a five-speed manual transmission, the latter will avail with a six-speed manual gearbox. Automatic options will also be available for both of these engines.
