The first official sketches of new Hyundai i20 premium hatchback have been revealed. Along with it, Hyundai India also reveals that the new i20 will not be called just i20 or Grand i20 (as predicted earlier). Instead, it will be called Elite i20.

We spoke to a dealer in Mumbai, and he confirmed that they are accepting bookings for an amount of Rs 50,000. This is 100% refundable once you decide that you do not want to buy the car after it’s price is revealed on 11th August. Yes, the Elite i20 will be launched in India on 11th August.

Featuring a wider stance and a longer look, the new Elite i20 comes with hexagonal airdam, mesh inserts, larger headlamp housing, thicker C Pillar, LED taillights, and a larger logo. Spotted undisguised just yesterday, 2015 Hyundai i20 will continue to be offered in a choice of petrol and diesel variants.

Engine options will continue to be the same one’s which are seen on current gen i20. Era, Asta, Magna and Sportz variants will again be seen on the Elite i20, and so will the manual and automatic transmission gearboxes. Once launched, new Hyundai Elite i20 will compete with the likes of Fiat Punto Evo, New Volkswagen Polo, Maruti Swift facelift, and yet to be launched Tata Bolt and Honda Jazz.
