Here’s a new walkaround video of the next-gen Hyundai i20 revealing the design, interior and feature details of the recently revealed car.
At the 2020 Auto Expo earlier this year, Korean automaker showcased a number of new products like next-gen Creta and Tucson facelift. The 2020 Creta and Verna are already on sale in the Indian market but the automaker is not done with the introduction of its new range of vehicles. The ongoing challenging situation has obstructed the progress of the automobile industry but the automaker has plans to introduce the new Tucson and next-gen i20 in our market very soon. Once launched, the premium hatchback will compete with the likes of Maruti Baleno, Tata Altroz, VW Polo and Honda Jazz. The all-new Euro-spec Hyundai i20 was scheduled to debut at the Geneva Motor Show but the showcase got cancelled due to the current situation, and hence, the automaker released its specs and images online. It may be noted here that the India-spec Hyundai i20 will look very similar to its European cousin.
It’ll feature a sleeker front fascia with some new styling bits all around. The all-new hatchback will get a redesigned grille along with a new bumper, bolder air inlets, new alloy wheels, aggressive cuts and bolder creases. The rear profile of the car now gets sporty looking LED taillights. One can expect the Turbo trim of the new-gen Hyundai Elite i20 to get all-black cabin theme with some sporty highlights and the India-spec i20 will sport an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Moreover, the next-gen India-bound i20 is also likely to get a fully-digital instrument console like the one offered with the 2020 Verna facelift.
The dashboard will feature integrated AC vents and a new centre console. Some of the key features of the next-gen i20 are an eight-speaker Bose sound system, new steering wheel with mounted controls and a wireless charging pad. In terms of dimensions, the new-gen Hyundai i20 will be bigger than the outgoing model, though the overall length of the India-spec model will be a shade under the 4-metre limit. Mechanically, the all-new premium hatchback will be powered by 1.2-litre petrol, 1.0-litre turbo petrol or a 1.5-litre diesel engines, based on the variant you select. Transmission choices will include manual and automatic options. The new hatchback is expected to hit the Indian shores by the upcoming festive season.
