Hyundai has launched the BS6 compliant Elite i20 in the Indian market before the official deadline of 1st April 2020. The premium hatchback that takes on the Tata Altroz and Maruti Suzuki Baleno gets a price tag of Rs 6.49 lakhs on the base variant while the top-end version costs Rs 8.31 lakhs. Hyundai has launched only petrol version of the Elite i20 in the Indian market. The diesel version is expected to be launched when the all-new version of the car arrives later this year.
The new BS6 compliant Elite i20 now gets a reshuffled variant list. Hyundai has dropped the base trim Era from and the Sportz+ petrol-CVT version is out too. The minimum price hike on the Elite i20 is Rs 15,000 while the maximum increase is Rs 90,000 over the BS4 version of the model.

Hyundai has not changed the vehicle cosmetically and it remains identical to the BS4 version of the car. Also, the feature-list of the Hyundai Elite i20 remains the same and there are no changes. In fact, the base model is now Magna+, which gets additional features like 2-DIN audio system, LED DRLs, remote locking, electrically adjustable wing mirrors and rear AC vents. The higher-end variants will also get a similar 7.0-inch touchscreen system, automatic climate control, side and curtain airbags, reverse camera and more.
The BS6 compliant Elite i20 will get the 1.2-litre petrol engine as before. It generates a maximum power of 83 PS and peak torque of 114 Nm. Hyundai is yet to reveal the fuel efficiency figure officially in the market but since all the BS6 upgraded vehicles have seen a marginal drop in the mileage, we can expect the same from the Elite i20 too.
Hyundai will reveal the all-new i20 in the international market next month. The all-new car is expected to be launched later in the Indian market and car has already been spotted testing on the Indian roads. The all-new Hyundai Elite i20 will re-introduce the diesel engine option to the model. Hyundai recently launched the Hyundai Venue with the 1.5-litre diesel engine option from the Kia Seltos but in a de-tuned form. The Elite i20 will also get powered by the same 1.5-litre engine from the Seltos and will produce lower power than the Seltos.
