Facelifted Hyundai i-Gen i20 launched in India at price of INR 4.73 Lac, Ex-showroom price

Hyundai Motor India Ltd, India’s largest passenger car exporter and second largest manufacturer announced the launch of its All New iGen i20. The i-Gen i20 is available in 12 variants. The Petrol variants range from Rs 473,400 to Rs 665,894, the diesel variants range from Rs 596,334 to Rs 744,013 and the automatic variant is priced at Rs767,405.

As you would expect, the new i20 now gets a heavy facelift with Hyundai’s popular fluidic design language being incorporated in the updated design. As you can see in the photos, the new Hyundai i20 gets updated headlights, taillights, bumpers and a re-sculpted bonnet. The popular ‘F1-nose-like’ creases on the bonnet now make way for simpler lines and the bonnet size itself has reduced too. Also on offer are new eight spoke alloys, a roof spoiler, high-gloss treatment for the front grille, ORVM mounted turn blinkers etc.

The engines for the new i20 have undergone tuning changes as well – and that explains why the new i20 was being tested on the Indian roads for such a long time. The 1.2-litre Kappa engine now gets variable valve timing (VTVT) and produces 84 PS as opposed to the earlier model’s power output of 80 PS. The power outputs for the i20 diesel and the i20 automatic remain unchanged at 90 PS and 100 PS respectively. The fuel economy for the 1.2 petrol is claimed at 18.5 kmpl, 1.4-litre diesel at 21.9 kmpl and the 1.4 automatic at 15 kmpl.
