Hyundai India released the first sketches of the new-gen i20, units of which have just started showing up at dealerships. Everyone would now be able to affirm that the third-gen i20 will be launched in India in the first week of November.
Highlight features of the new India-spec Hyundai i20 incorporate the signature cascading grille, projector headlamps, triangular-shaped fog light surrounds, new diamond-cut alloy wheels, Z-shaped LED taillights, a chrome strip running into the length of the bootlid, back guard mounted number plate recess, back washer and wiper, and a shark-fin antenna.
Inside, the next-gen Hyundai i20 comes outfitted with a completely digital instrument console, directing mounted controls, huge touchscreen infotainment system, wireless charging, four-spoke steering wheel, second-row AC vents, electric sunroof, and an air purifier.
The 2020 Hyundai i20 is required to be offered with three powertrain alternatives including a 1.2-liter NA petroleum motor, 1.5-liter diesel motor, and a 1.0-liter turbo-petroleum motor. The previous is probably going to be offered with a five-speed manual unit while the latter two could be combined to a six-speed manual unit. A DCT unit mated to the 1.0-liter turbo-petroleum engine can’t be precluded either. Once launched, the new Hyundai i20 will match the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Volkswagen Polo, Honda Jazz, and the Tata Altroz.
