New Spy shots of the next-gen Hyundai i20 reveal that it will get a sunroof and projector headlamps. With this, it will be the first one in its rivals.
Hyundai has commenced testing the next-gen versions of Elite i20, Grand i10 and Xcent. All of them will get some significant updates in terms of styling and features as well. The case is different with the Elite i20.
Motor Vikatan has revealed new spy shots of the next-gen i20. Interestingly, the new Hyundai i20 test mule has been spotted with an electric sunroof and projector headlamps. With the sunroof, it will be the only hatchback in its segment with it.
Further, we can see Hyundai’s new Cascading Grille, that comes on Venue and Creta. The interiors are also set to receive a makeover, possibly with a new dashboard layout and new upholstery.
That’s not all the upgrades that the new Hyundai i20 will get. The new 1.0 Litre Turbo-petrol engine that debuted on the Venue is likely to make its way on the hatchback. This would come as a competition to Baleno, which also has the RS variant with a 1.0 Litre turbo-petrol unit.
Additionally, the i20 will continue with the 1.2 Litre naturally aspirated petrol engine and the 1.4 Litre diesel engine. The turbo petrol engine produces 120 BHP and 172 Nm of peak torque. The diesel engine puts out 89 BHP and 220 Nm.
It is likely to get the same 7-speed DCT with the turbo-petrol engine. The petrol engine will get the 5-speed manual gearbox and the diesel with the 6-speed MT.
Inside the cabin, the new Hyundai i20 could get a revised touchscreen infotainment, wireless charging, etc. Safety features onboard will include dual-airbags, ABS with EBD, Rear Parking sensors, Seat belt warning and high-speed alert as standard fitments.
WIth the new features and BS-6 compliant engine, the prices of the hatchback will increase. It will continue to rival the likes of Maruti Baleno, Honda Jazz, Volkswagen Polo and the upcoming Tata Altroz.
