Earlier today, Hyundai India officially issued a statement that their new i20 will be called Elite i20. Designed and developed by their team in Europe, i20 is a global hatchback. It will make its European debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show in October this year. Compared to the Indian variant, the European variant will be slightly different.
Based on Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design ideology, the 2015 i20 features a more fluidic design than the outgoing variant. Larger headlamps, sloping roof, wider stance, LED tail lamps, all indicate to a sportier appeal with a smarter road presence for a city car.
On the inside, new Elite i20 will be a little similar to that as the Grand i10 hatchback, albeit with a more premium touch. The centre console gets display for air temperature, ac vents are squarish, instrument panel has two large dials and a TFT LCD display in the center, and steering wheel comes with a chrome garnish.
As far as engine options are concerned, Hyundai Elite i20 will continue to be offered with the same set of 1.2l and 1.4l for petrol and 1.4l for diesel. Along with manual, automatic transmission will also be on offer in the petrol variant. Prices will range from Rs 5-7.5 lakhs expectedly.
