The top speed of the 2020 Hyundai i20 Turbo has been tested out in the real world. Check out the details below.

Hyundai has just launched the new-gen i20 hatchback in India with three engine options, one of which is a potent turbo-petrol unit. The 2020 Hyundai i20 comes with an all-new 1.0-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged-petrol motor that comes mated to a 7-speed DCT and a 6-speed iMT unit. The turbo variants of the 2020 i20 are currently on sales within the price bracket of around Rs 10 – 11.18 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), making it the costliest hatchback in our country. But how powerful the new i20 Turbo actually is?  Here we found a video showing the real-world top-speed testing result of the 2020 Hyundai i20 Turbo model. Let’s check it out.

2020 Hyundai i20 vs Old Hyundai i20: An In-Depth Comparison

The 2020 Hyundai i20 Turbo is capable of generating 120 PS of max power and 175 Nm of peak torque, be it the most powerful hatchback cars in the category. With the kerb weight of around 1,000 kg, the new i20 Turbo can accelerate quickly from the standstill. The hatchback maintains good stability at high speeds. After the speed of 100 kmph, the Hyundai i20 Turbo-DCT starts revving up rapidly. We think that it could effortlessly reach the speed of 170 kmph if the roads were less crowded.

Apart from the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol mill, the 2020 Hyundai i20 also offers a 1.2-litre 4-cylinder petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel engine under the hood. While the former can be had with either a 5-speed MT or a CVT, the diesel motor comes paired with a sole 6-speed manual transmission.
