This Hyundai Elite i20 looks dope with 18-inch rims, Doesn't it? Take a look at it here and decide.
Hyundai Elite i20 is one of the best-looking hatchbacks in the country. It sports a European design theme with a gorgeous silhouette that comprises of a long bonnet and proportionately long cabin. Also, the overall height of the Elite i20 isn’t much. Thus, it boasts of a low-slung appeal. Extensively modified examples of Elite i20 can be seen on roads with ease, as its scintillating looks make it an easy car to work around. However, the first mod that almost every owner plans on his/her Elite i20 is a set of aftermarket alloy wheels. Most of them generally prefer a size or two bigger than the OEM units, which measure 16-inch in diameter. Here’s one example that now rides on a set of 18-inch rims.
These massive 18-inch rims come from the collection of Plati Alloys India, which is an Indian brand, and this mod job was performed by Creative Wheels, who are based out of Punjab. In terms of looks, these 5-spoke dual-tone units aid the Elite i20 with a lot more presence. Also, they seek a lot of attention. The rims are draped in a set of low-profile tyres. While this setup is appealing to eyes, it comes at the cost of reduced ride comfort. Moreover, the chances of bending or breaking rims while hitting a pothole or road undulation at high-speed increases with the use of low-profile tyres. Talking of the OEM units, the Elite i20 comes fitted with 16-inch diamond-cut units with 195/55 R16 tyres.
Powering the Elite i20 is a 1.2L 4-cylinder naturally aspirated Kappa motor that propels out a peak power output of 83 PS and max torque of 114 Nm. There are two transmission options on offer – 5-speed MT and CVT. Also, Hyundai is planning to launch the new-gen model of the Elite i20 in the country. It is likely to go on sale by festive season this year. On the new-gen Elite i20, customers will get the option to choose between three engine options – 1.2L petrol, 1.0L turbo-petrol, and 1.5L turbo-diesel. The gearbox options will include a 5-speed MT, 6-speed MT, 6-speed iMT, and 7-speed DCT.
