Recently, a test mule of the upcoming new-gen Hyundai Elite i20 was caught on camera, thereby revealing a lot of details of the car. Take a look at the walkaround video here.
Hyundai Elite i20 is all set to make its way to the showroom floors sometime soon. The South-Korean carmaker has, however, not confirmed of the actual date of the new-gen Elite i20;s launch in the Indian car market. Though, it is expected to happen sometime in the 3rd quarter of 2020 itself. That being said, the production-spec test mules of the new-gen Hyundai Elite i20 are currently performing their final rounds of testing. Also, one of them was recently spotted by the folks at Autowheels India. They also managed to upload a walkaround video of the same on their YouTube channel.
It can be seen in the video above that the new-gen Elite i20 gets a similar silhouette as the outgoing model. At least it looks like that under the camo wraps. Also, it is identical to the model showcased internationally, in terms of its overall looks. It gets a wide cascading grille at the front, which covers a major part of the front facet. It is flanked by a set of sleek LED headlamps. According to the host of the video, it isn’t the top-spec trim, thus it had conventional halogen bulbs for the headlamps.
Moving over to the sides, one can see that new-gen Elite i20 will have a low-slung stance. Since the car on test isn't the top-spec trim, it does miss out on the black sash tape for the B-pillars. It does get a set of 16-inch alloy wheels, instead. Their design seems to be inspired by those seen on the facelifted Verna. A shark-fin antenna can also be spotted on the roof. As a major part of the car’s exterior was covered in camouflage, a lot could not be seen and shown in the video.
Interestingly, the video host managed to get a glimpse of the car’s interior by opening the door. It reveals that the new-gen Elite i20 will get an all-black theme for the interior. Also, this was an automatic variant, thus had only two pedals in place. The host confirmed that it also missed out on a push-button for the start-stop function. However, the seats are nicely contoured and the headrest gets a unique design with an integrated cushion.
