The new Elite i20 Automatic receives a 4-Speed Automatic transmission. This is a conventional torque converter unit. This 4-speed Transmission could be only slightly fuel-sapping. However, given the bigger engine, the upcoming Hyundai Elite i20 Automatic is sure to be a lot more fun to drive. The new 1.4-litre petrol motor for i20 Automatic has a max. power of 100 PS @ 6000 rpm and a peak torque of 132 Nm @ 4000 RPM. The Hyundai Elite i20 Automatic could have a true top speed of 170 KMPH.
Hyundai Elite i20 Automatic Mileage
The torque converter automatic transmission won’t be as efficient as Dual Clutch units. Hence, we don’t expect the new i20 Automatic to have a claimed fuel mileage of more than 17 kpl. Currently, the petrol variants with the 5-speed manual transmission return 18.6 kpl overall according to official figures.
