The upcoming new-gen Hyundai i20 has been recently spied outside a dealership ahead of its launch next month. The new model will lock horns with Maruti Baleno, Tata Altroz and Honda Jazz
The new-genHyundai i20 is all set to hit the Indian shores by the first week of next month. Ahead of its official launch, the premium hatchback has started arriving at the selected Hyundai dealerships around the country. The latest set of spy pictures confirm that the first batch of new-gen Hyundai i20 has been dispatched to some dealers. In these pictures, one can also check out the interior of third-gen i20. It gets a sunroof, a big touchscreen infotainment unit with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
The top-spec trims of the new Hyundai i20 will be exclusively offered with the configurable colour TFT instrument cluster. The hatchback employs Creta-like multi-function steering wheel, toggle switches, wireless charging pad, Bose premium sound system with 7/8 speakers and low mounted AC vents.
Like Hyundai Creta and Venue, the new-gen i20 will feature the company’s BlueLink car connected technology, which consists of 33 features. In terms of looks, the new-gen Hyundai Creta will feature some extensive changes. Upfront, the premium hatchback will feature an all-black cascading grille and full LED headlamps with LED DRLs. It also features aggressive-looking front bumper with some sharp lines, newly-designed LED taillights, shark fin antenna and diamond-cut alloy wheels. The 2020 model of the car will be powered by three different engine options, which consists of 1.2-litre petrol, 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine.
The 1.2-litre NA petrol unit puts out 82bhp of power, the turbo petrol unit develops 99bhp, and the diesel motor is capable of shredding out a power output of 99bhp. It’ll be offered with five distinctive transmission options- a 5-speed manual, a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed torque converter automatic, a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic and iMT (Intelligent Manual Transmission). The price of the all-new Premium hatchback is yet to be revealed and it is expected to be slightly pricier than the outgoing model. Once launched, it’ll rival with the likes of Maruti Baleno and Tata Altroz.
