South Korean automaker Hyundai is planning to launch its updated i20 hatchback in India by the end of this year.
The upcoming vehicle is expected to come with an eight-speaker Bose audio system, similar to its European counterpart. Moreover, it will get an updated design and a turbo-petrol powertrain.
As for the pocket-pinch, the car should sport a price-figure upwards of Rs. 6.5 lakh.
The 2020 Hyundai i20 will have an eye-catching design, featuring a sloping roofline, a trapezoidal grille at the front, a muscular bonnet with sculpted lines, and refreshed bumpers.
On the sides, the hatchback will be flanked by blacked-out B-pillars, ORVMS, and designer alloy wheels.
Finally, for lighting, the vehicle will house projector headlights with DRLs and Z-shaped LED taillamps.
The i20 will be offered with three BS6-compliant engine options- 1.0-liter turbo petrol, 1.0-liter petrol, and 1.2-liter petrol. The first will come mated to a 48V mild-hybrid system and generate 118.35hp and 172Nm. Meanwhile, the second and third one will make 97.64hp and 82.9hp, respectively.
Hyundai i20 will feature a spacious cabin with automatic climate control, an 8-speaker Bose audio system, and a power steering wheel.
The hatchback will house two 10.25-inch displays for instrumentation and infotainment, respectively, with the latter supporting Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and BlueLink system.
For safety, the car should get Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control and Hyundai's SmartSense safety package with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist.
The India-bound Hyundai i20 is expected to be launched by the end of this year and should be priced between Rs. 6.5-10 lakh (ex-showroom). Once launched, the hatchback will take on the likes of Honda Jazz, Maruti Suzuki Baleno, and Tata Altroz.
