Set for launch on 17th March 2015, the new Hyundai i20 Active interiors are now revealed in a set of official studio shots. The exteriors were already revealed last month, when the car was out for a TVC shoot.
Spy shots of Hyundai i20 Active interiors reveal a completely new look, as compared to the Elite i20. Though the overall layout is same, the designers have given the i20 Active an all black dashboard, with orange finish on the ac vents (left and right, centre ones remain black) rim, gear knob, and around the controls to FM/AM and music player. Apart from this, the seats also get orange accents on the lumbar and thigh support area.
Depending on the exterior colour of the car, the interior theme will match accordingly. In this case, as the car has orange (or Mars Red) colour on the exterior, the interiors are done up in same contrast of black and orange.
Exterior changes include a new grille upfront, revised lower bumper in the front and rear, circular fog lights in the front, circular reflectors in the rear, LED DRLs and projector headlamps, black plastic cladding on all sides, front and rear lower bumper also get cladding in silver finish, adding to the SUV-like-look of the i20 Active.
Speaking about engine options, there has been no change. Petrol will be in the form of 1.2l mill generating 83 PS and 114 Nm torque, delivering claimed mileage of 17.19 kmpl via five speed gearbox. The diesel will be a 1.4l mill generating 90 PS power and 220 Nm torque, delivering 21.19 kmpl via six speed gearbox. There is no 4×4 on offer. All variants are front wheel drive. The only change as compared to Elite i20 in the engine department, is that the engineers have tweaked to deliver better low-end torque. To be precise, the petrol delivers 6% better low-end torque, while diesel delivers 11% better low-end torque.
