Noticeable changes in the design
Though there were presumptions on how the India-bound i20 would look like; courtesy the earlier revealed European-spec i20, there’s now no doubt that the new-gen Hyundai i20 is definitely awesome and more attractive than ever before.
Hyundai defines the next-generation i20 as the epitome of ‘Sensuous Sportiness’. And there are various elements that prove that it is indeed the one with that ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ character. The design, especially the front profile will remind you of the 2020 Hyundai Creta and Hyundai Venue.
There’s a new parametric jewel pattern grille that is extended downwards towards the front bumper (very much like Hyundai Venue) and also there are appealing triangular air vents that house fog lamps. The uniquely designed LED headlamps look fresh and also house LED DRLs. Besides these, the robust and prominent hood character lines perfectly complement the bold and widestance of the next-generation i20.
The ORVMs of the next-generation Hyundai i20 get LED turn indicators and also sport puddle lamps with welcome function. Also, on the sides, what you see new is the chrome beltline with flyback rear quarter glass. The newly styled chrome outside door handles adds to the luxury profile and gives you an easy grip. In addition, the 5-spoke R16 diamond cut alloy wheels further amplify the premium charm of this hatch.
Don’t be surprised if you see the all-new Hyundai i20 with a shark fin antenna because it gets one and certainly adds to its dynamic appeal. Another highlight of the Hyundai i20 2020 is the Z-shaped LED tail lamps with connecting chrome garnish. There’s also a black treatment that can be seen on the front grille as well as under the rear windscreen and on the rear reflector.
Powerful engines borrowed from Hyundai Venue
The new-gen Hyundai i20 also has specifications as its another surprising factor. It is available in 83ps 1.2-litre Kappa petrol, 100ps 1.5-litre U2 CRDi diesel and 1.0-litre turbo GDI petrol engine choices, borrowed from Hyundai Venue. While the 1.2-litre Kappa petrol trims are available in 5-speed MT and iVT gearbox choices, the 1.5-litre U2 CRDi diesel engine trims are offered with 6-speed manual transmission gearbox. The other, 1.0-litre turbo GDI petrol engine is offered with iMT and 7-speed DCT gearbox choices.
New interior and features make it more premium
The next-generation model of Hyundai i20 also gets an all-new premium interior coloured in black. There is a new dashboard with sleek horizontal lines that houses a total of 4 air vents. Besides this, the instrument cluster of the 2020 Hyundai i20 is fully digital.
The key highlight inside the new-gen Hyundai i20 is its largest-in-segment 10.25 inches touchscreen infotainment and navigation system. This new upcoming model of Hyundai i20 is also comes loaded with other exciting features such as oxyboost air purifier with air quality indicator, automatic climate control, one-touch electric sunroof with tilt function, smartphone wireless charger with cooling pad, cruise control, Bose premium 7 speaker system, rear AC vents and more.

Price-wise, not cheaper than Maruti Baleno and Tata Altroz
