Speaking about engine and transmission, the current Hyundai i20 is offered in a choice of petrol and diesel engine options. Same will continue with the 2020 Hyundai i20. These are 1.2 liter petrol 4 cylinder engine generating 82 hp and 115 Nm via 5 speed MT or CVT automatic. The 1.4 liter diesel engine delivers 89 hp and 220 Nm via 6 speed MT.
Standard safety features on offer include dual airbags in the front along with ABS. Top end variants will also get 6 airbags. Price range will slightly increase, from the current i20 which is ranged from Rs 5.4 lakhs to Rs 9.2 lakhs.
