Hyundai has yet again been spied testing the next-gen i20 on our roads which is scheduled for a launch in the festive season. The new i20 is a whole new car inside out with brand new engines under the hood as well.
Hyundai‘s fourth-biggest launch of this year will be the new generation i20. The new Hyundai i20 has already been unveiled for the global market and we will be getting it around the festive season. It will sport a plethora of upgrades ranging from new dimensions, refreshed design, new engines and tons of feature upgrades.
Hyundai has commenced testing the new i20 on the roads of Delhi. We recently spotted one testing on the roads of Delhi NCR. While it was completely camouflaged, we got some specific details to catch our eyes. The headlamps are completely new and so is the alloy wheel design. This looks similar to the one that we have for Sportz i20 variant.
The stance of the new Hyundai i20 feels more aggressive and sportier. While the silhouette of the new hatch will remain quite similar to the outgoing one, some design bits including sharper and bolder lines will be new. Inside the cabin, it will get a complete makeover with new dashboard, steering wheel and even the seat upholstery.
Currently, the Hyundai i20 only comes with a 1.2L petrol engine as its 1.4 Litre diesel unit was discontinued. The new model will continue with the 1.2 Litre four-cylinder petrol engine. New additions will include a 1.0 Litre turbo petrol and a 1.5 Litre turbo diesel engine. The three-cylinder turbo unit will come from the Nios and Aura Turbo, producing 100 PS and 172 Nm of peak torque. There are reports of it getting a manual gearbox along with the option of a DCT.

New features onboard will include a bigger touchscreen infotainment, BlueLink internet technology, voice assist, electric sunroof, LED headlamps, cruise control and wireless charger. Prices will rise by at least Rs 50,000 from the current range of Rs 6.49 Lakhs up to Rs 8.30 Lakhs (ex-showroom).
