Japanese automaker Hyundai has unleashed the latest version of its popular car, the i20, aiming to compete head-to-head with the Maruti Baleno and Tata Altroz.
The revamped i20, released on September 8th, comes with a starting price tag of ₹6.99 lakh, challenging the Baleno’s pricing. However, please note that this is the ex-showroom price.
New Power Under the Hood
The refreshed Hyundai i20 will exclusively feature a 1.2-liter Kappa petrol engine, generating an impressive 83 PS of power and 114.7 Nm of torque.
The previously available turbo engine has been discontinued, leaving buyers with the petrol variant. The vehicle boasts a 5-speed manual transmission.
Safety Takes Center Stage
Hyundai is elevating safety standards with the new i20. The car now comes equipped with six airbags as a standard feature, offering enhanced protection to occupants.
It also incorporates advanced safety technologies like Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), and Emergency Stop Signal (ESS).
Additional safety perks include hill start assist, ISOFIX child seat anchors, and a driver rear view monitor.
A Fresh Exterior Makeover
Hyundai has given the i20 a facelift with noticeable exterior improvements.
Sharper styling accents adorn the bumpers, complemented by the addition of new LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs). The vehicle rides on stylish 16-inch alloy wheels.
Inside the Hyundai i20, you’ll discover a dual-tone interior with leatherette seats featuring the i20 branding.
The vehicle also offers a glove box with cooling functionality, automatic temperature control, and a Type-C charger. The D-Cut steering wheel adds to the driving experience.
This update positions the Hyundai i20 as a formidable contender in the competitive hatchback market, ready to take on its rivals with its improved features and fresh design elements.
