FireShot Capture 020 - AURA Highlights - Stylish New Sedan - Hyundai India - www.hyundai.com.png



The Hyundai i20 Active, a variant of the popular hatchback with rough road package, has been removed from Hyundai India’s official website.

This removal suggests that the automaker has decided against updating the variant to BS6 standard which is set to kick in from April 1, 2020. We reported earlier that Hyundai has recently discontinued petrol CVT and diesel variants of the Elite i20 premium hatchback. Only the petrol manual variants will be upgraded to BS6 standards as the company is gearing up to welcome the next-generation model soon.

Compared to the regular version of the hatchback, the Hyundai i20 Active featured different alloy wheels and crossover-like elements such as roof rails, front and rear silver scuff plates and black plastic body cladding. The soft-crossover shared its powertrain lineup with the regular hatchback. The petrol engine was a 1.2-liter unit which produced 82 hp and 115 Nm of torque. The diesel unit displaced 1.4-liter and dished out 89 hp and 220 Nm of torque. The former was equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission while the latter received a 6-speed manual unit.
