Hyundai is all set to launch the new generation Hyundai i20 in India very soon with dealers already taking pre-bookings for the new model. Hyundai is yet to make an official launch announcement. The all-new generation Hyundai i20 is one of the most-awaited launches of this year and some dealers are taking bookings at Rs 25,000 which is eligible for a full refund.
Stepping up its game, Hyundai has made its new-generation i20 bigger, bolder, sharper compared to the previous model. Visually, the car has a sporty look with a large front grille with new LED projector headlamps and LED DRLs (daytime running lamp). It also has a sculpted look from the front with diamond-cut alloy wheels. The car will come with an electric Outside Rear-view Mirror (ORVMs) with integrated LED side indicators, shark fin antenna, rear wiper, wraparound LED tail lights with a connected chrome strip, and much more.
The new generation i20 has a premium black interior design with a digital instrument cluster, a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment unit, flat-bottom steering with mounted controls, dual airbags, rear AC vents, charging sockets, Hyundai’s BlueLink connected car technology, and other features.
The car is expected to come with three engines options,1.2-litre petrol engine, the 1.5-litre diesel engine and the 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engines. Transmission options will include manual and automatic units. It seems the new i20 is likely to give tough competition to the Maruti Baleno, the Toyota Glanza and the Honda Jazz.
The new generation i20’s interior is quite similar to the Hyundai Venue but the car-maker has made a few changes in the new i20 as it comes with a wider dashboard space. The new i20 has an air purifier with virus protection, a digital instrument console, automatic AC, multi-functional steering wheel, cruise control, and a Bose premium sound system with an automatic sunroof.
