Hyundai is working to replace the current version of the Elite i20 with an all-new car. The all-new i20 will be launched in the Indian market next year and the car has already been spotted testing under heavy camouflage. The all-new i20 has been seen testing on the international roads, as well as in India. While the car is still a few months away from entering the production line and launching in the market, here is a speculative rendered image that indicates what the car may look like when it is launched in the Indian market.
The rendering image has been made by Shoeb Kalania for IAB. The image is based on the camouflaged test mules of the upcoming i20 that have been spotted testing in India and international roads. The image indicates that the all-new i20 will get a large grille, which is in accordance with the latest design trends of Hyundai. The headlamps are conventional and not like the ones we get to see on the Hyundai Venue. The headlamps also feature LED DRL that looks quite good on the car. Moreover, the car gets a large foglamp housing that is designed pretty aggressively. It gets a bumper splitter that adds an overall sporty look to the car.
The overall shape remains similar to the current version of the Hyundai Elite i20. While shape has become a bit sleeker, Hyundai may not change the overall shape of the car to keep its DNA alive. On the side, the all-new Hyundai Elite i20 might get deep creases that form the character lines of the car.
Hyundai has always been known for their good looking alloy wheels and the all-new Hyundai Elite will also get a new set of alloy wheels. The headlamp and the tail lamps are expected to get powered by LED lamps. On the inside, the Hyundai Elite i20 currently gets a long list of features. The all-new version will get an even more elaborative list of features that may be segment-leading.
We may get to see the similar connected infotainment system, just like the Hyundai Venue in the next-generation i20. Also, features like air purifier can be introduced to the car. The all-new car will get a plush new cabin with added features like cruise control and sunroof.
Hyundai has not said anything on the engine that will power the all-new Elite i20. However, the car is expected to get 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine or the 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that powers the Hyundai Venue. The diesel variants will utilise the 1.4-litre BS6 engine. Hyundai will offer both manual and automatic transmission options with the Venue. We may get to see the official unveiling at the 2020 Auto Expo.
