Hyundai India has already confirmed that they will be launching 8 new cars by 2020. One of these cars is the new generation 2020 Hyundai i20 hatchback. The car has just began testing, and has now been spotted for the first time.

Hyundai i20 is a very important car for the brand. Not only the hatchback is popular in India, but also in many other countries, including Europe. To be bigger and wider than current Hyundai i20, the new generation variant will also be lighter and feature-rich than the current i20.


The spy shots of the car show a completely camouflaged car, but reveals the A, B and C pillars, thus giving away the side profile of the car. The car seems to feature bigger front and rear windows. It also has new LED tail lights.

More details are not available, but one can expect the 2020 Hyundai i20 to feature revised stance, with new bumper, LED headlight, LED grille, alloys, etc. Also, the car will be passing Bharat NCAP safety norms, which come into effect in India from 1st October 2019.


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.

Once launched, the new Hyundai i20 will take on the Maruti Baleno, which is also the segment leader. It will also rival the upcoming Tata 45X hatchback, which was showcased as a concept earlier this year.

Never expected Hyundai Elite i20's Bodyshell to be termed Unstable. Shocking results. (Atleast I expected a stable bodyshell even with 3 star ratings)
So, in order to drive around in a car with a stable bodyshell with 4 Stars rating, one has to end up spending 10+ lakhs.
Now I wonder what will the Tata Tiago and Tigor score in Global NCAP?

Next-Gen Hyundai Elite i20 To Be Bigger In Size With More Features

hyundai-elite-i20-next-gen-redering-1-2-696x437.jpg


Next generation Hyundai Elite i20 could launch in India by the middle of next year with bigger proportions and an upgraded interior and exterior

Our rendering shows how the second generation Elite i20 could look like and it got big shoes to fill by taking over from the existing model that has been in the business for nearly five years. The 2020 Hyundai Elite i20 will likely have bigger proportions than the outgoing model to emphasise more interior space.

2020 Hyundai i20 sunroof spied in latest spy shots

2020-hyundai-i20-sunroof-spied-4.jpg


The 2020 Hyundai i20 opts for a generously proportioned hexagonal grille with accentuated edges, new peeled back headlamps which merge well with the grille, triangular foglight enclosures and a slit for secondary airdam. The profile doesn’t appear to have changed much and this is not a bad thing at all considering that the current car still has a dynamic stance despite being half-a-decade old. One of the new features which the spy shots have confirmed, is that the 2020 Hyundai i20 sunroof.

New gen Hyundai i20 digital instrument console spied

2020-hyundai-i20-digital-instrument-cluster-1.jpg


As expected, the 2020 Hyundai i20 receives digital colour instrument console with a huge configurable central area. The speedo and tacho displays settle for classic shapes. The next gen hatchback also sports a large infotainment display mounted high up on the center console. If the modern Hyundais are anything to go by, one can expect the new i20 to offer state-of-the-art connectivity and entertainment features.
