Hyundai is India is the second largest car manufacturer in India. Even during these pandemic times, they had launched number of models in the Indian market. One of the recent was the all-new Hyundai Creta which is doing great in terms of sales. One of the upcoming car from Hyundai this year is the all-new i20 premium hatchback. It will replace the current i20 elite and will compete with cars like Maruti Baleno, Tata Altroz and Honda Jazz in the segment. Hyundai will be launching the new i20 next month and here we have an official video that shows how the new i20 is built at Hyundai’s factory in Chennai.
The video has been shared by Hyundai India on their official youtube channel. The video show how they were building the new i20 hatchback from scratch. It all started from press shop where they were cutting metal sheets for building the body and other panels on the car. After all these parts were precisely cut using machines, they were all joined with the frame. The chassis of the new i20 is using 66 percent of high strength steel. After that, the whole shell is sent to the paint shop where number of robots paint the car carefully.
Meanwhile, the engine and the interior of the car is also assembled in the other part of the plant. Hyundai i20 will be available with a 1.0 litre turbo petrol, 1.2 litre naturally aspirated petrol and a 1.5 litre diesel engine options. A variety of transmission options will also be available with these engine options. Once the engine and the dashboard is all assembled, they are installed inside the car that was earlier painted by the robots.
Once everything is set and is in place, the team conducts number of tests to make sure that everything is working fine in the car. The video shows glimpses of the all-new Hyundai i20. It will have a wide grille with jewel patterns in it. The headlight looks sharp and sleek with LED DRLs integrated in it. The i20 gets machine cut dual tone alloy wheels and the rear gets a distinct looking design with ‘Z’ shaped spilt LED tail lights. There is a reflector bar running between the lamps at the rear too. The i20 definitely looks promising in terms of design and we are sure that it won’t disappoint when it comes to the features too.
