Hyundai recently launched their all-new version of their premium hatchback, i20 in the market. It competes with the likes of Maruti Baleno, Honda Jazz, Tata Altroz, Volkswagen Polo in the segment. It is entirely different from the older generation i20 and is Hyundai’s first car in the country to use K-platform. Hyundai has launched i20 in variety of engine and transmission options and here we have a rendered image that shows how the all-new i20 would look like, if it were to get a Dark Edition model.
The render image has been uploaded by Indian Auto on their website. The render image is just an imagination of how the Dark edition of Hyundia i20 would look like and the manufacturer does not have any intentions of launching this version. The main difference in the Dark Edition in comparison to the regular i20 is that it gets an all-black shade.
The Dark Edition 0f the all-new i20 is a bit different from the Dark Edition that we have seen in Tata Harrier. Here in i20, the chrome elements have not been completely removed or blacked they are retained which gives it an even more premium look. The front of the car gets gloss black grille with a muscular bumper and Hyundai logo on it.
The headlights are sleek looking LED units that give it an aggressive look. They act like an extension to the grille which completes the front look. Moving to the side profile, the i20 gets the chrome garnish on window line with boomerang shaped garnish on the C-pillar. The door handles also get chrome garnish.
The stock alloy wheels have been replaced with an all-black unit which gives it a sporty look. The lower part of the door also gets chrome garnish along with cladding. The rear of the car is not seen in the image but looking at the front and the rear, it looks like no major changes will be done to it and the chrome strip running between the split LED tail lights will also be retained.
The all-new Hyundai i20 is offered with a long list of features and some of them like Bose speakers, iMT gearbox are even segment first. The i20 is available with three engine options. There is a 1.2 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine with manual and CVT gerabox options, a 1.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine with 7-speed DCT and iMT gearbox and a 1.5 litre diesel engine that is available with a diesel engine only.
Hyundai has also unveiled the high-performance version of the new i20 internationally. Called the i20 N, the hot hatch version of this hatchback makes over 200 Bhp of peak power. Hyundai India hasn’t indicated any plans to launch the i20 N here though.
