Hyundai today launched the latest generation of their premium i20 hatchback. Now named as the Hyundai Elite i20, the new generation car features a raft of changes both mechanically and visually. Styling wise, the Elite i20 features Hyundai’s latest generation of design – the Fluidic Scuplture 2.0 philosophy. So, the new design now has sharper lines, a much more aggressive front end with a large grille and a striking rear with large, wrap around tail lamps. In fact, the new design contributes greatly to further enhance the appeal of the Elite i20, especially with its large 16″ wheels.
Powertrain wise, the i20 features updated version of the two engines offered on the last-generation car. So, now the 1.2-liter petrol engine offers 83PS of power and 11.7Kgm of torque, while the 1.4-liter U2 CRDi engine offers 90PS and an impressive 22.4Kgm of torque. Both engines have also been updated as far as their efficiency is concerned, so the claimed fuel efficiency is now 18.6km/l for the petrol and 22.54km/l for the diesel, which Hyundai claims are best-in-class figures.
The interiors are also completely revamped, offering impressive design and quality levels. Of course, as one would expect, the Hyundai Elite i20 is loaded to the brim with features as standard equipment. So, starting with automatic climate control, rear a/c vents, audio system with built-in 1GB of storage, Bluetooth connectivity, steering controls, smart key with start-stop button, automatic headlamps, dual airbags, ABS, rear parking sensors, reversing camera and an automatic dimming mirror the car is packed with features. In fact, it would be quite apt to say that the Hyundai Elite i20 is the best equipped car in its class.
Available in four version in both petrol and diesel, the pricing of the Elite i20 is quite competitive and it seems that Hyundai has yet another successful product on offer for the Indian market.
