We have some exclusive spy shots of the 2020 Hyundai i20, spotted testing in India. The hatchback is due to launch this year with a complete makeover.
2020 Hyundai i20 New generation has been spied testing on the roads of Delhi, again. Through our exclusive spy shots from our reader Himanshu, we can confirm that the India-spec version will be slightly different from the Euro-spec. The hatchback will be inspired by Hyundai’s latest design language.
Going by the spy shots, we can see that the front and rear bumpers are sharper, giving an edgy look. The alloy wheels are also new and we might see their design similar to what’s on the Venue. Lastly, the bonnet line also seems to be a bit taller.
New and sleeker projector headlamps can be seen on the spied 2020 Hyundai i20. Also, it will get new LED tail lamps with a sharper outlining. There would also be some sporty bits like a faux diffuser at the back, body-kit type bumpers and side skirts.
Hyundai would not be showcasing the 2020 i20 New generation at the Auto Expo. It will most likely debut by June this year with its launch scheduled around that time only. Not only will the changes be limited to styling, but also new engines onboard.
I20 will continue with the 1.2 Litre petrol engine with BS6 compliance. Hyundai will discontinue its 1.4 Litre turbo-diesel engine, which might be replaced by the 1.5 Litre diesel engine from Seltos. So, Seltos’s diesel engine will be detuned to equip the Venue and i20.
Also, the new generation i20 will get Venue’s 1.0 Litre turbo-petrol engine. On the hatchback, the motor will produce around 110-115 BHP. We can also expect the 7-speed DCT of Venue to come on the i20 turbo-petrol variants.
Further, the new i20 will get many new features like cruise control, a fully digital instrument console, an electric sunroof, disc brakes on all four wheels, a refreshed touchscreen infotainment unit and some bits more.
Expect Hyundai i20 to get expensive by a significant margin, with its new generation coming. It will continue to rival the likes of Volkswagen Polo, Honda Jazz, Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Toyota Glanza and Ford Freestyle. As of now, none of them are due for any big upgrade.
