The all-new Hyundai i20 is going to see its global premiere at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show next week, and ahead of that, Hyundai has released the first image of the interiors of the 2020 i20. Hyundai revealed the exterior images of the i20 earlier last week and we were very impressed with the striking new design. Following that, Hyundai even teased us with a sketch image of the interiors of the new i20 and now we have a concrete image of the same.
First up, there’s going to be a new four-spoke steering wheels which is quite identical to the one on the India-spec Creta SUV. The steering features controls for the audio system, the cruise control and also for a new fully-digital instrument cluster. The 10.25-inch digital instrument console even changed color depending on the selected drive mode – it turns blue for Normal, green for Eco, and orange for Sport.
Further, the dashboard also gets a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system which seems connected with the instrument binnacle. The system is replete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, Hyundai’s BlueLink connectivity suite and Hyundai Live services, which includes real-time traffic updates, weather data and more. Below the infotainment screen, there’s a panel with horizontal blades running the length of the dashboard and very cleverly also houses the AC vents, making it look like one continuous AC vent.
You also notice similar blades around the door handles and along the door pockets. The layered dashboard then has a stack of buttons below the AC vents for the HVAC system and it also has multiple USB ports and a wireless charging pad located just ahead of the gear lever. The new-gen i20 gets push button start/stop system, ambient lighting, a Bose audio system and a front centre armrest as well. The all-new i20 will be available with three different interior trims – Black Mono, Black and Gray and Black Mono, and Yellow Green.
However, this image previews what the interiors of the international-spec i20 is going to look like. For the India-spec model, the steering wheel will of course be shifted to the right side and there might be some changes to the interior trim and upholstery along with features. The overall dashboard layout is however going to remain identical.
Under the hood, the new Hyundai i20 will be powered by a 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol, a 1.5-litre diesel, and also the 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbo-petrol. Hyundai will also be offering a 7-speed DCT gearbox with the 1.0L, turbo-petrol engine. When it’s launched, the new Hyundai i20 will rival other premium hatchbacks like the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Tata Altroz, Honda Jazz and the Toyota Glanza. Expect prices to be in the range of Rs 6-10 lakh (ex-showroom).
