All-new Hyundai Elite i20: Turbo petrol version with twin clutch automatic gearbox on video

  • Thursday 22nd October 2020

Hyundai will launch the all-new Elite i20 in the first week of November. The manufacturer has already started dispatching the units of the all-new premium hatchback to the dealerships across India and we have already seen a few spy shots revealing almost everything about the car. While Hyundai is yet to officially announce the variant details, specifications and features of the upcoming i20, this video confirms that the car will be launched with a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with the DCT automatic transmission on video.

The short video has been made by Mighty Bubbles and is uploaded on his YouTube channel. The video shows the top-end Asta optional variant that will offer some of the many first-in-segment features. Starting at the front, the all-new Hyundai Elite i20’s design looks radical. It gets a large grille that remains the main highlight on the front. The sleek headlamps are positioned in a way that it looks like an extension of the grille itself. It gets projector headlamps and trapezoidal fog lamps. There is also a black coloured bumper lip, which makes the car look very sport.

There is a turbo badge positioned in the grille of the vehicle and the same badge can be seen on the sides of this hatchback. Since it is powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, just like the other new Hyundai cars, it also gets the badges all around. Also, there is a chrome window line that rakes sharply towards the roof towards the end. There is more chrome on the door handles and the dual-tone alloy wheels do look extremely good.

The rear gets a black applique just below the rear windshield adds a sportier look while there is a chrome stripe connecting the tail lamps through and through. The tail lamps also look extremely aggressively designed and there are only two badges in the rear apart from the manufacturer’s logo. One of the badges shows the Asta variant and the other moniker says “i20”.

The VIN sticker reveals that this car is powered by a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine and it gets a 7-speed DCT automatic transmission. This is the first time that Hyundai will offer a 7-speed DCT automatic in the segment. That’s not all, Hyundai will also offer a sunroof and a massive 10.25-inch infotainment screen.

The all-new Elite i20 will take on the likes of Tata Altroz, Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Honda Jazz and the Toyota Glanza. Elite i20 will also be available with naturally-aspirated 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine.
