The Elite i20 is among the best selling cars from Hyundai in India. It rivals the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and the Honda Jazz in the premium hatchback segment. While its chief rival Maruti Suzuki Baleno is quite popular in the mod circuits across the country, the Elite is a step behind in that aspect. However, the one featured here has been transformed into a hot looking hatchback with a ton of aesthetic enhancements. The video below by Vinay Kapoor shows this Elite i20 in full glory. Let’s check out the video now before indulging in the modifications done on the car.
Painted in red, this Elite i20 definitely sticks out of the crowd in a good way. The front end of the car features blacked-out grille with a black Hyundai logo and a strip of black metal running under it. The bumper gets an adjustable splitter upfront which may not provide any special aerodynamic benefits but adds to the coolness quotient of the car. The headlamps have been fitted with projector lamps along with LED DRLs while the fog lamps are also LED units now. The bonnet features 3D decals while a hood strap has been placed in front.
Moving to the side, there are metal side skirts in place here which again won’t be playing any major aerodynamic role but enhance the aesthetics for sure. Another addition on the side is the wheel arch cladding on all four fenders. The car now rides on hot looking multi-spoke rims that have been given a special black wrap treatment. The handlebars have been coated with black wrapping but only on the face side. Towards the rear, a custom diffuser is in place which is lined with reflector coating. The blacked-out roof ends with vortex generators mounted towards the rear end to add to the overall aesthetics.
Also present on the rear are smoked taillights and bumper-mounted dim light LEDs. All the logos have been blacked out here also just as the front end of the car. Other enhancements include a 360-degree camera and blind-spot mirrors mounted atop the ORVMs. The 360-degree camera can be accessed via the large aftermarket infotainment system on the dashboard.
Talking about the Hyundai i20 Elite, the car comes with both petrol and diesel powertrains.

The petrol engine, on the other hand, is a 1.2-litre VTVT unit that churns out with 82 Bhp of power along with 114 Nm of torque is standard.
