Hyundai Elite i20 facelift explained in detail

Hyundai Elite i20 facelift explained in detail

While we have been seeing a slew of spy shots of the Hyundai Elite i20's camouflaged test mules for over a year, the unmasked vehicle was spotted ahead of the Expo. Now, with the refreshed version of the premium hatchback officially unveiled at the biennial event, we have all the information about the car. Let's delve into the details.

Exterior changes

The refreshed hatchback gets a new front grille and bumper. The headlamps don’t seem to have any changes, however, they still feature DRLs and projector headlamps. At the back, the tail lamps sport a new LED pattern and the bumper is also redesigned. The profile of the hatchback remains unchanged save for the new five-spoke design pattern of the alloy wheels.

Interior updates

It’s a similar story with the interiors, as Hyundai has kept the changes inside the cabin minimal too. The dashboard design and colour scheme is carried over from the predecessor. Nevertheless, minor feature additions include a 17.7cm touchscreen infotainment system and revised air-con controls. Also, to enliven the cabin, the car gets red and orange accents.

Engine and gearbox

The 2018 Iteration of the Elite i20 will continue to operate with petrol and diesel engines. While the 1.2-litre petrol engine produces 82bhp and 115Nm of torque, the 1.4-litre diesel motor is significantly more powerful with a power output of 89bhp and 220 Nm. This diesel features a six-speed manual, while the petrol comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Hyundai also announced that it will add a CVT automatic gearbox option to the 1.2-litre Kappa petrol engine in May 2018.

Variant-wise price and competition

The entry-level Era petrol and diesel cost Rs 5.34 lakhs and Rs 6.73 lakhs respectively, while the Magna Era, positioned above the Era, is priced at Rs 5.99 lakhs for the petrol and Rs 7.31 lakhs for the diesel. The mid-variant Sport petrol costs Rs 6.59 lakhs, while the diesel model retails at Rs 7.83 lakhs. The Asta petrol and diesel are priced at Rs 7.11 lakhs and Rs 8.35 lakhs respectively. The top-of-the-line Asta (O) petrol trim retails at Rs 7.9 lakhs, while the diesel is priced at Rs 9.15 lakhs. The Elite i20 will continue to compete against the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Honda Jazz and the Volkswagen Polo.
