After eliminating a few features across Hyundai Elite i20 lineup, the automaker has now added touchscreen AVN system (Audio, Video, Navigation) to the premium hatchback as well its soft crossover sibling i20 Active.
The touchscreen multimedia infotainment system employs a 7-inch display located on the centre console. The system incorporates usual in-car entertainment and connectivity features with pre-loaded maps, satellite navigation with voice guidance and rear view camera.
No other features have been added. The inclusion of a touchscreen AVN plugs the equipment gap the premium hatchback had over its rival Honda Jazz.
The twins are powered by a 83 PS 1.2-litre petrol engine and a 90 PS 1.4-litre diesel engine. The petrol motor makes do with a 5-speed manual transmission while the oil burner sports a 6-speed manual transmission.
The upmarket equipment is available only on the top-end Elite i20 Asta (O) and i20 Active SX variants. Elite i20 Asta (O) petrol is now priced at INR 7.16 lakhs while the diesel variant retails for INR 8.28 lakhs. i20 Active SX petrol and diesel variants carry price tags of INR 7.92 lakhs and INR 9.16 lakhs respectively. All prices are ex-showroom, New Delhi.
Hyundai hopes to continue its strong run in the premium hatchback segment with the updated models.
