The new Hyundai i20 has gone on sale in four variants - Magna, Sportz, Asta and Asta (O). There is no Era version owing to low demand for bare-basic variants of premium hatchbacks

The third-gen Hyundai i20 has been launched in India, starting at Rs 6.71 lakh(ex-showroom). It comes in four trim levels, the Magna, Sportz, Asta, and Asta(O). In this video we’ll be focusing on the base Magna trim specifically.

Considering the price gap between the Magna and the top of the line Asta(O), owners will be quite satisfied with the features on it. It gets regular halogen headlamps instead of projectors, LED DRLs, electrically adjustable ORVMs but no folding mechanism, and 14-inch steel wheels. Also, you miss out on the rear wiper/washer, LED rear lamps and the turn indicators are on the front fenders instead of the ORVM.

The main exterior highlights have been retained, the gloss black detailing on the side skirts and grille with the rear spoiler are all there. Inside the cabin, it gets black fabric seats instead of leather, which should be better for Indian conditions, but this is also where see where most of the costs are cut compared to the higher trims

Instead of the huge all-digital instrument cluster which has been promoted heavily, you get twin-pod analogue dials with a multi-information display in between. This has been carried over from the older i20 and is shared with the Hyundai Venue as well. It does get a new steering wheel but misses out on cruise control and a flat bottom. Furthermore, the 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system for the centre-console has been replaced by the older 2-DIN Bluetooth system with aux connection, and the AC knobs have been lifted off of the old car as well.

But fear not, the dashboard does have the new design language with similar detailing.  You get the front centre armrest with a single USB port and a 12V one along with rear AC vents and another charging port but you miss out on the fast charger and rear centre armrest.

You get the option of the 1.2 litre KAPPA petrol which makes 83Ps(87 for the CVT) and 114Nm or the 1.5 litre U2 diesel which churns out 99Ps and 240Nm of max power/torque figures. The petrol is mated to either a 5-speed manual or CVT gearbox while the diesel comes with a 6-speed manual only. Safety and ease-of-use features include dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, and more.
