Check out this customised Hyundai Elite i20 with full-body gold-wrapped exterior and custom aero body kit.
Hyundai i20 is one of the first premium hatchbacks to be sold in India, and has been one of the most popular ones in the market. With such popularity, it isn’t a surprise to see multiple examples of extensively modified i20 on the roads. That being said, none of the cars we've seen are as flamboyant and eye-catchy as the one below.
Hyundai i20 Modified | Universal Bodykit | Gold Chrome full body car wrap
The video above, posted by YouTuber ‘Vinay Kapoor’ on his channel, features a detailed walkaround of a heavily modified Hyundai Elite i20. The car is instantly recognisable as a customised vehicle, on account of it shiny, gold-chrome wrapped exterior. The full-body wrap is cleanly applied to the car, with only the roof and C-pillars remaining blacked-out. There is a small hood ornament on the car, a tiny, black ‘Batman’ logo. Apart from that, there is a Shiva-lingam vinyl/sticker on top of the windscreen, outside of where the IRVM is situated.
There are plenty of mechanical additions and changes to the car as well. Starting from the front, there is a lip spoiler added to the car, and quite a sturdy one too. Moving on to the side profile, we notice the custom alloy wheels with red-coloured branding stuck on the inner side. There are side skirt spoilers too, which add to the sporty look of the car. At the rear, we get a neatly-installed, three-piece rear diffuser under the rear bumper. The three parts can be replaced individually in the event of an accident. The body kit used on the car is Predator body kit, Stage 2, priced at Rs. 12,999 (excluding taxes).
As for the engine, that seems to be stock. Currently, the Hyundai Elite i20 is powered by a 1.2-litre BS6 compliant petrol engine. Previously, there was a 1.4-litre diesel motor on offer as well, but as it was only BS4 compliant, it has been discontinued. There, however, is a new generation i20 on the horizon, coming soon to India. That car is expected to be offered with three different engine options- a 1.2-litre petrol (same as the current one), a 1.5-litre diesel, and a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol unit. The next-gen i20 was earlier expected to be launched sometime around the mid-year mark, although it could be delayed now due to the coronavirus outbreak.
