This model of the i20 is the latest generation hatchback from Hyundai. It is also the company’s most premium hatchback. It was designed at Hyundai Motor’s Design Centre Europe in Russelsheim, Germany with an investment of Rs 1,050 crore.
The new-generation model features the brand’s ‘Fluidic Sculpture 2.0’ design philosophy that lends it a completely new look.
The Elite i20 is available in both petrol and diesel engine options in India. However, only petrol engine option will be available in the South African market
There are two engine options- one is the 83bhp four-cylinder 1.2-litre VTVT Kappa unit and another the 99bhp 1.4-litre mill. Both the engines come mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.
Marketing as ‘The Elite i20’, Hyundai launched the hatchback in India on August 11 last year and since then it has been creating a sensation in the market. This is the second generation model of the i20 that goes up against other cars.
