The brisk selling Hyundai Elite i20 premium hatchback has just received its second equipment level revision of the year. According to a report by Team-bhp, the Maruti Baleno rival gains and loses a few features in its fully-loaded Asta (O) avatar.
The variant now sports glossy black C-Pillar finish instead of matte back treatment seen in rest of the variants. The Elite i20 Asta (O) also receives a shorter roof-mounted radio antenna which is sourced from the i20 Active soft crossover.
Hyundai has decided to delete the auto dimming interior rear view mirror from the Asta (O)’s equipment package. Rest of the elements continue without any changes. The mild revision is appears to be a part of Hyundai’s continued efforts to improve the cost structure without compromising on the overall appeal of the product.
The Hyundai Elite i20 Asta (O) is currently priced at INR 7.18 lakhs for the petrol version and INR 8.19 lakhs for the diesel version (ex-showroom, New Delhi). The company has announced a marginal price hike which will come into effect from January 1, 2016.
The premium hatchback is powered by a 1.2-litre Kappa 2 petrol engine outputting 83 PS and 115 Nm of torque when mated to a 5-speed MT. The diesel engine of choice is a 1.4-litre U2 CRDI engine which is paired with a 6-speed MT to dish out 90 PS and 220 Nm of torque.
