The third-generation Hyundai i20 is ready to make its debut at the 2020 Auto Expo. While the official unveiling of the hatchback is a few months away, its details have started emerging on the web.
According to a latest report, the 2020 Hyundai i20 will get the segment-first all digital instrument cluster similar to the new-generation Hyundai Creta (iX25). However, there is no clarity whether this unit will be reserved for the top-end trim or made available across the lineup.
The 2020 Hyundai i20 will also receive the brand’s BlueLink connected car technology as we have seen in the Hyundai Venue subcompact SUV. One of the major updates will include a new, larger 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
Features such as wireless charging, push-button start-stop, front and rear armrests, automatic climate control with rear AC vents and 6 airbags will also be on offer.
The 2020 Hyundai i20 will also witness some significant design changes that will make it look more refreshing. There will be minor dimensional changes, thus making it more spacious especially for the rear seat occupants.
Engine setup will be new and more powerful than the existing powertrains. The 2020 Hyundai i20 will get the Venue’s 1.0L, 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine pushing out 118bhp with 172Nm. It can be had either with a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT automatic transmission.
Powering the diesel version will be a 1.5L unit sourced from the Kia Seltos. This oil burner makes a peak power of 115bhp against 250Nm of torque. Though, it could be detuned and get a fixed geometry turbo technology.
