New I20 launched at Rs 6.79 lakh in India

Hyundai has launched their new i20 with prices ranging from Rs 6.79 to Rs 11.18 Lakhs. The new i20 has been completely revamped and is now larger and more sharply styled than before. There is also a much wider list of features and engine options.

Hyundai’s new i20 is available in four trim levels – Magna, Sportz, Asta and Asta(O). Additionally, it gets three engine and four gearbox options. On the more budget side of the scale is the 83hp, 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol mill that comes mated to a manual or a CVT automatic transmission. 

Moreover, Hyundai claims to have extended its 1.0-litre turbo-petrol offering to the latest i20 for providing a punchier performance and catering to the growing segment of a younger demographic. The 120hp motor can be had with a clutch-less manual transmission (or iMT in Hyundai parlance) or a sportier DCT automatic setup. 

i20’s competitors like the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Honda Jazz ditched their diesel offerings, earlier this year and are now only available with 1.2-litre petrol powertrains. The Tata Altroz is the only other premium hatchback contender to offer the choice between petrol and diesel engines, with an additional turbo-petrol mill expected to join the line-up later this month.
