Hyundai Elite i20 Exteriors and Interiors Styling and Design
Most of the changes made to the Elite i20 are cosmetic in nature, as you would expect from a facelift. The new grille up front is essentially a beefed up version of the older one. The front bumper looks sharper and gets smaller front fog lamp enclosures. A cool touch here is that they include slim air curtains to reduce drag. It also gets restyled 16-inch alloys on the Asta dual-tone and Asta (O) variants which are lifted directly from the Euro-spec car. At the rear, the tail lamps have been redesigned, but the biggest change however is that the number plate has been shifted from the bumper to
the tailgate, which has already divided opinions.
The cabin is mostly the same as before. You still get the dual-tone dash finished in beige and black, with the trademark Hyundai steering wheel and a similar centre console layout. There are however subtle changes, like one of the 12V sockets in the centre console that has been replaced with a USB port. The MID or multi-information display has been tweaked and is more comprehensive. The 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment is still in place but features a revised user interface and the Arkamys sound tuner system. Hyundai has also added the Auto Link telematics app that allows users to remotely access information like distance travelled, hard braking or acceleration and travel time. The all black interiors are available with the dual-tone variants only. The dual –tone variants also feature coloured accents in the cabin as well. The dual-tone paint is available with the Asta variant only and also gets adjustable rear headrests, 16-inch alloy wheels and costs Rs 25,000 over the standard Elite i20 Asta.
