Hyundai will launch the all-new Elite i20 in the Indian market later this year. The all-new premium hatchback will take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Baleno in the market and was expected to be launched in the coming months. However, due to the coronavirus outbreak and lockdown in India, the launch might get shifted by a couple of months. The upcoming Hyundai Elite i20 has been spotted on the Indian roads several times under heavy camouflage. Here is the first image of the all-new i20 testing on the roads without any camouflage.
The picture comes from South Korea by Motograph, which is where Hyundai is headquartered. It should be noted that the European version of i20 was revealed officially recently through a video. The all-new i20 was scheduled to get unveiled globally at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. However, the motor show was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak globally.
The all-new Hyundai i20 gets a new platform and an all design. The car gets aggressive looks and follows the new “Sensuous Design” theme that makes the car look very aggressive. The all-new i20 also gets a large grille and there are sleek LED headlamps on both sides. There are large triangular fog lamp housings on the bumper. On the side, the all-new Hyundai i20 gets deep creases that converge together and form a very sporty design.
At the rear, this i20 gets sharp-looking lamps with a lightbar connecting both the lamps. There is a gloss black stripe running over the lightbar that makes the car look very aggressive. The new Elite i20 gets ten colours including dual-tone versions in the international markets.
The cabin also gets an all-new look. The cabin has AC vents that run across the dashboard. There is a floating-type infotainment system that supports all the modern connectivity requirements plus the BlueLink system from Hyundai that keeps it connected to the Internet. The all-new i20 also features an all-digital instrument cluster of 10.25-inch. Even the infotainment system is of the same size. Safety-wise, the Indian-spec hatchback will get features like ESP, 6-airbags, traction control system, ISOFIX seat anchors, and more.
The Indian version of the Hyundai Elite i20 will get powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged engine that is available with the Hyundai Venue. It will get the 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission too. Moreover, it will feature the new 1.5-litre diesel engine and the lower variants can feature the 1.2-litre petrol engine option. Hyundai is likely to offer the automatic transmission options with all the three engine options.
