Hyundai is planning to launch the 2020 edition of its premium hatchback, the i20, in India by the end of this year. In the latest development, a heavily camouflaged test mule of the upcoming model has been spotted plying on roads.
The not-so-clear images reveal some design aspects of the India-specific i20, including the presence of halogen headlamps and updated alloy wheels.
In India, the i20 is expected to come with three BS6-compliant engines: 1.2-liter petrol, 1.2-liter diesel, and a 1.0-liter turbo-petrol. However, their power figures are unknown as of now. For transmission duties, both manual and automatic gearboxes will be on offer.
Hyundai will announce the prices of the next-generation i20 at the launch event, which is likely to take place by year-end. However, looking at the upgrades, the hatchback is expected to carry a slight premium over the existing model which starts at Rs. 6.49 lakh.
