    CarWale's Take

    • Good Things
      • Great all-rounder with a plethora of variants.
      • A well put together cabin with plenty of features. 
      • Decently spacious with good quality all around.
    • Bad Things
      • The steering lacks feedback.
      • Suspension is a little too soft for spirited driving.
      • New generation model is just around the corner.

    Elite i20 Verdict

    The Elite i20 has always been a good all-rounder, with a well-balanced design, tons of features and a spacious cabin. After the midlife facelift in 2018, there are even more significant improvements such as the revised upholstery, updated infotainment system, and improved high-speed ride. Overall, the Elite i20 is a very capable and upmarket hatch.  

    Elite i20 Review

    We’ll answer that question by telling you five things that still work for the Elite i20 and the two things that don’t.

    Introduction

    Hyundai Elite i20 Front Right Three-Quarter

    It’s hard to imagine that the Hyundai i20 has been in the Indian market since as long as 2008. Of course it has received its share of updates but still, 11 years is a long time. Now called the Elite i20, it’s already been five years since the major update. So does it still have enough charm left to woo the buyers? We’ll answer that question by telling you five things that still work for the Elite i20 and the two things that don’t.

    Positives

    1. Design 

    Hyundai Elite i20 Left Front Three Quarter

    Yes it has been five years since the last major update, but the Elite i20’s design has aged gracefully or let’s say stylishly. The stylish headlights along with the family cascading grille gives it a very European look. On the sides, the Elite i20 gets one of the best looking OEM alloys that are complimented by that stylish rising hipline. Overall, the Elite i20 is still one of the better looking premium hatchbacks out there even amongst the newer competition. 

    2. Interiors 

    Hyundai Elite i20 Dashboard

    Like the exteriors, even the i20’s interiors still feel rather fresh. It’s a very clean layout and everything falls at hand easily. There is soft-touch padding around the arm rest and top half of the dash, supplemented by silver trim highlights on the centre console. The recent update is the addition of new buttons on the steering wheel and new trim colours. 

    3. Space 

    Hyundai Elite i20 Rear Seat Space

    Another of the Elite i20’s highlights has been space. Starting at the rear bench, there is more than adequate legroom and it’s also wide enough seat three comfortably. There is no issue with the headroom either and the low beltline means the visibility all around is great. The boot, meanwhile, remains the same at 285 litres, expanding to 1,042 litres when the rear seats are folded flat.

    4. Ride Quality 

    Hyundai has recently tweaked the rear suspension in the Elite i20 and that has improved things as compared to before. You can actually feel the upgraded rear-end improving the car’s high speed manners, with less of the up-and-down movement.

    It also retains its class leading refinement over bad roads. Road noise is minimal and the suspension remains rather quiet over jittery surfaces. 

    5. Refined Engine and Gearbox 

    Hyundai Elite i20 Engine Bay

    The Elite i20 can be had with two engine options, a 1.2-litre petrol and the 1.4 litre diesel. Hyundai has recently tweaked this engine for better low end response and upped the efficiency as well. With just 1400cc to play with, it’s not the punchiest motor out there, but has more than enough torque to dart into gaps in traffic or cruise at comfortable triple-digit speeds. A special mention here goes to the six-speed manual which is incredibly precise, easy to use and supplements the linear torque delivery.

    Negatives

    1. No automatic diesel 

    Hyundai Elite i20 Action

    Now the Elite i20 does get a CVT automatic, but that’s only with the 1.2-litre petrol engine. This 1.4 diesel is an extremely popular choice and we can’t help but miss an automatic transmission for this engine. Hyundai already has an automatic gearbox for the diesel Creta and we hope they get one for the Elite i20 diesel too. 

    2. Not for the spirited driver 

    Hyundai Elite i20 Action

    As sporty as the Elite i20 looks, it really isn’t the sportiest to drive. The steering feel is still inconsistent off centre and there is more body roll than what you would expect. Also the clutch feel isn’t too linear and the action is just too springy which mars the overall driving experience.

    Conclusion

    Hyundai Elite i20 Rear Left Three-Quarter

    So does the Elite i20 still make a good buy? We think it does. Its still one of the most stylish premium hatchbacks out there, has plenty of features and is quite spacious too. We do wish Hyundai offers an AT gearbox for the diesel soon and as for us enthusiasts…Hyundai can we please have the i20 N?
