The New-gen Hyundai i20 Launch Is Just Around The Corner!

The i20 has started reaching dealerships and a select few have even commenced unofficial bookings


  • New-gen Hyundai i20 expected to be launched ahead of Diwali.
  • It’s likely to be offered with three engine options including the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol.
  • Interior design looks similar to the international-spec model with few India-specific changes.
  • Prime features include a 10.25-inch infotainment system, digital instrumentation and a sunroof.

The 2020 Hyundai i20, set to be launched this festive season, has started reaching dealerships. A select few have even commenced unofficial bookings and hinted at a possible November first week launch. Moreover, this is the first time we’ve managed to get a glimpse of the India-spec i20’s interior.  


While the dashboard layout is similar to the international-spec i20, the India-spec model gets a few changes. For starters, the 10.25-inch infotainment system is a straight lift from the Hyundai Creta/Kia Seltos while the instrument cluster uses the Verna’s bar-style digital unit. In comparison, the international-spec i20 gets a more premium coloured digital instrument display.  


The rest of the design is similar to the international-spec model. There’s a hint of Audi with faux AC vents while the sleek console for air-con controls is a straight lift from the international car. The steering wheel is similar to the Hyundai Creta and that’s no bad thing. The exterior design is identical to the international-spec model. Take a closer look here.  


In typical Hyundai fashion, the new-gen i20 will come loaded with features such as connected car tech, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, automatic climate control, cruise control, a sunroof, a wireless phone charger, a multi-info display, and possibly a Bose sound system as well. Safety should be covered by multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, parking sensors and a rear view camera. 


We already know the engine options for the new-gen i20. Here’s a quick recap. It will be offered with three engines: a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol, a 1.5-litre diesel and a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol. Here are the expected specifications:


I20 1.2-litre Petrol

I20 1.0-litre Turbo-petrol

I20 1.5-litre Diesel

Power (PS)




Torque (Nm)




Transmission Options

5-speed manual 

6-speed iMT* / 7-speed DCT

The new-gen i20 is well armed for a tough battle against its well-established rivals. We expect it to be priced from Rs 6 lakh (ex-showroom), putting it in the ballpark of the Tata Altroz, Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Toyota Glanza, and the new Honda Jazz
