Hyundai to launch a special edition of the Elite i20
Hyundai India is planning to launch a special edition variant of the Elite i20 to commemorate the first anniversary of the hatchback in India. This might also help Hyundai get the attention of potential customers who might have been distracted by the launch of the new Honda Jazz. This special edition dubbed the Hyundai i20 Celebration Edition, will be limited to just 600 units. The Hyundai Elite i20 is the current segment leader in terms of sales thanks to the stellar response the received by the standard i20 and the i20 Active and this special edition will only help enhance the hatchback’s appeal.

The current i20 hatchback was launched in India on August 11, 2014. Seeing as this is a special edition commemorating the Elite i20’s first anniversary, we expect Hyundai to make an official announcement very soon. Prices of the diesel and petrol variants have already been listed on Hyundai’s official website

This edition will only be available in the white paint shade and should start retailing through dealerships across the country very soon. These changes will find their way to the Sportz trim of the Elite i20. Interiors could also get minor changes in the form of new upholstery, etc., but that is just speculation at the moment.
