The all-new Hyundai i20 was launched this Diwali with a single objective, to get the premium hatchback crown back. But only 10% of buyers are going for the two-tone shades, read on for full details.
The third-generation Hyundai i20 has been seen a very positive response since its launch during Diwali 2020. Hyundai has revealed that it has already garnered over 30,000 bookings in only 40 days since its launch. The customers are loving the new i20’s new Sensuous Sportiness design language with signature visual cues like the new jewel pattern grille is flanked by new Projector LED and LED DRLS, while the side profile gets new creases and wedge-shaped cuts and gets chrome side inserts on the windows which leads to a more aggressive stance. Brand new Z-shaped LED tail lamps are bridged by a chrome strip which has quickly become the new model’s signature feature.
Hyundai has recently stated that 10% of customers of the new i20 are splurging on the new dual-tone shades. It may be noted here that the dual-tone options cost Rs 15,000 more than the monotone counterparts. It may not sound much but it looks like most customers aren't keen to spend a bit extra on the dual-tone look. The third-generation Hyundai i20 has segment-leading features like a 7-speaker bose audio system, all-digital instrument console with multiple modes, a 10-inch infotainment system with inbuilt Apple Carplay and Android Auto, Hyundai Bluelink over the air updates, and a wireless charger with a cooling pad. For safety, it gets 6 airbags, ESC with VSM & Hill Assist Control.
The new Hyundai i20 comes with multiple powertrain options, starting with the 86 PS/115 Nm 1.2 litre petrol which can be matched with a 5-speed manual or CVT. The 1.0-litre turbo-petrol comes next for the enthusiasts pumping out 120 PS/172 Nm of max power and torque and is mated with a 6-speed iMT or the 7-speed DCT. There’s a 1.5 litre oil-burner as well that makes 99Ps and 240Nm of power and torque figures respectively. It only comes with a 6-speed manual and it is the most fuel-efficient diesel powertrain in the country with figures of 25.6 kmpl, as claimed by Hyundai.
