The Hyundai i20 facelift was recently seen testing in India. It is true that only in April the Hyundai India launched a slightly updated version of the car in new dual tone colour option, the upcoming model will be a proper mid-life facelift with significant cosmetic changes and feature upgrades. As of now the date of launch is not yet confirmed, but we can expect it to go on sale by the end of the year.
we can tell you that the new Hyundai i20 will come with an updated front, with the company’s new signature cascading grille design and restyled headlamps. Projector lamps and LED daytime running lights will surely be a part of the i20 facelift but just in the top-end variants. The testing model also sported a new stylish set of alloy wheels that look very premium and should improve the overall look of the car.
The rear portion and the cabin are highly masked so we can’t completely be sure about the updates. However, we do expect to see revised LED tail lamps, a new rear bumper design and a small roof-mounted spoil. Also, it is expected that the cabin will get upmarket treatment with new interior trim options and features. A touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic climate control and faux leather upholstery are some of the comfort features we expect to see. Airbags and ABS with EBD might be a part of standard offerings.
In terms of powertrain options, we don’t expect to see any changes so the car will continue to be powered by a 1.2 liter petrol engine with a 5-speed manual unit, a 1.4-litre diesel engine with a 6-speed manual gearbox and a 1.4-litre petrol with a 4-speed automatic transmission.
Hyundai i20 is on the road from 2014 and since the car getting much love. I will tell you the car already got one update in 2017 and Hyundai is set to give major change and may launch new i20 in 2020.
Quoting the sources, to give stiff competition to rival, Hyundai is considering to offer more inside space, more head and leg space with powerful AC vent at the front & rear. Also considering powerful touchscreen infotainment with android and apple car play, Sunroof and attractive, bigger in size trims
Though, with change, the engine would be the same as the 90hp, 1.4-litre diesel and the 83hp, 1.2-litre petrol. If you own or thinking to buy i20, do comment your thoughts and suggest what should be next features in upcoming Hyundai i20 in 2020
