Hyundai i20 is one of the popular premium hatchbacks sold in the country. It competes with cars like Maruti Baleno, Tata Altroz, Volkswagen Polo and Honda Jazz in the segment. Hyundai launched the all-new i20 in the market last year and like many other Hyundai models, i20 also became popular in a short span of time. We are all aware of rising fuel prices in the country. Some states have already seen triple digits for a litre of petrol while some are inching towards the Rs 100 per litre mark. Car users have already started looking for alternate options like installing CNG kits on petrol vehicles. Here we have a Hyundai i20 hatchback that has been retro fitted with a CNG kit.
The video has been uploaded by cngMarutiautogas Cng on their YouTube channel. Maruti Auto Gas is actually the garage that has installed this kit and they are authorised distributors for Zavoli CNG Kits India which is an Italian brand. Hyundai i20 is actually a good looking premium hatchback in the segment and is available with a variety of engine and transmission options.
Hyundai i20 seen here is a Sportz variant and it comes with decent list of features, both inside and outside. Hyundai does not offer i20 with a company fitted CNG kit and that is why owners are looking for such alternate options. The kit installed on this Hyundai i20 is a Zavoli Bora S32 sequential CNG kit. In this video, they show how the CNG has been installed neatly under the bonnet. The wiring and all the gas pipes, injectors are all neatly installed on the car.
What makes this CNG setup unique is that, it comes with 8 injectors. Normally a car with a 4 cylinder engine comes with for injectors but, here they have doubled the number of injectors for better power delivery. In comparison to a petrol vehicle, vehicles fitted with a CNG kit has a small lag and by installing more number of injectors they aim at reducing the lag and give a seamless driving experience to the driver.
The video also mentions that none of the existing wires on the i20 were cut while installing this new kit. They also show the CNG gas cylinder that has been installed in the boot. Most of the space in the boot has been occupied by the cylinder. The spare wheel is now placed vertically and without any doubt, these two have eaten up all the space in boot.
The whole setup looks very neat and the indicator switch showing the level of gas in the vehicle is also shown in the video. Hyundai i20 as mentioned above is available with various engine and transmission options. There is a 1.2 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine which generates 82 Bhp and 115 Nm of peak torque. It comes with a manual and CVT gearbox option. The 1.5 litre turbo diesel engine comes with a manual gearbox and it generates 99 Bhp and 240 Nm of peak torque. Hyundai also offers a 1.0 litre, three cylinder, turbo petrol engine that generates 118 Bhp and 172 Nm of peak torque. It comes with a DCT and iMT gearbox options.
