Last-minute preparations must be in full swing at Hyundai Motor India’s HQ as the country’s second-largest automaker gets ready to launch the all-new i20 tomorrow. The spiritual successor to the very popular Elite i20, this third-generation model has garnered many eyeballs from prospective buyers. It has seemingly got all the right recipes behind its birth and is poised to take the premium-ish hatchback segment by storm. The Korean auto marque began accepting bookings for the all-new i20 sometime back, with the amount set at Rs 21,000. You can still place your order for the car either by visiting an authorized Hyundai dealership or through the brand’s official website.

Upon launch, the all-new Hyundai i20 is likely to be priced somewhere between Rs 5.70 lakh to Rs 9.90 lakh (ex-showroom). It will also be available in four different trim levels and with at least four engine-gearbox configurations. Customers of the all-new i20 will be able to pick from one of 8 colors, including six mono-tone and two dual-tone shades. These will include Fiery Red, Metallic Copper, Polar White, Typhoon Silver, Fiery Red with Black Roof, and Polar White with Black Roof. Trim levels of the all-new Hyundai i20 will begin with the entry-level Magna, followed by the Sportz, Asta, and the range-topping Asta (O). Some of the i20’s premier competitors will see cars like the Tata Altroz, Maruti Suzuki Baleno, and Volkswagen Polo entering the ring.
Just as with its precursor, the all-new Hyundai i20 will also come with a diesel heart. The unit in question is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharged mill from the Venue. It comes paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox and whips out 99hp and 240Nm of torque. There will also be two petrol engines on offer. One will be a 1.0-liter turbocharged three-popper with 118hp and 172Nm on tap, whilst the base motor is a 1.2-liter naturally-aspirated four-banger that makes 82hp and 114Nm of twist. As expected, Hyundai will offer the all-new i20 with plenty of gearbox options to pick from. These include a 5-speed and 6-speed manual, along with a 6-speed clutchless transmission, a CVT, and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
The all-new Hyundai i20 will be loaded to the gills with new and modern features. These include a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto & Apple CarPlay, a digital instrument display, LED mood lighting, electric sunroof, automatic climate control with rear AC vents, ventilated front seats, cruise control, wireless phone charger, and a multifunction flat-bottom steering wheel. The i20’s safety suite will get you up to 6 airbags, parking sensors with a reversing camera, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist, and ISOFIX child-seat anchor points, among a few more.
