Hyundai has prolonged its focus towards the performance end of things by launching the i20 Turbo in the UK. Designed and built in Europe, the i20 Turbo will be priced from £12,975 (Rs 11.53 lakh) on-road when it enters showrooms this August.
Meeting the growing trend for small capacity turbo petrol engines, the i20 Turbo features a 100bhp 1-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder petrol engine. Paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox, this tiny engine allows the i20 to accelerate from 0-100kmph in 10.9 seconds.
The car is fitted with distinctive 16-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth, cruise control with speed limiter, and a leather wrapped steering wheel with audio controls as standard.
The i20 Turbo is now on sale in the UK and competes with cars like the Vauxhall Astra and the VW Polo.
