Elite i20 highlights
April 25, 2017: The 2018 Hyundai Elite i20 facelift has been spied for the first time in India. The 2018 i20 is expected to come with redesigned front and rear profiles along with subtly updated interior. The facelift model is likely to be launched in early 2018.
Earlier in April 2017, Hyundai Motor India launched the 2017 Elite i20 at a starting price of Rs 5.37 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It now comes with an updated list of features and choice of dual-tone body colours as well. On the outside, the 2017 Elite i20 is offered, for the first time, with dual-tone body colour options – Red Passion or Polar White body colour with Phantom Black roof colour. Additionally, there is a new Marina Blue colour on offer as well. Inside the cabin, the car now comes with orange colour inserts in the black interior theme, which makes for a sporty aura. Besides these, it also receives a new 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with support for both Apple CarPlay, Android Auto along with Mirror Link connectivity.
The 2017 Hyundai Elite i20 is available with three options each for engines and transmissions. While the 1.2-litre petrol engine produces 83PS/115Nm and comes mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, the 1.4-litre U2 CRDi diesel unit generates 90PS/220Nm and comes paired with a six-speed manual transmission. The third option is the 1.4-litre petrol mill that comes mated to a four-speed auto box and produces 100PS/132Nm. The updated 2017 Elite i20 renews its rivalry with the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Honda Jazz and the Volkswagen Polo.
When I saw Elite i20 is getting updates one after the other when it comes to features and other tit bits, I decided to get the car for testing. The Elite i20 came at a time when I had to choose from the four cars despite 3 SUV's for the quick new year trip. I decided I wanted to spend some time with the Elite class and hence I opted for the i20. The Hyundai Elite i20 has been the car that started the premium hatchback segment.

I am planning to buy a good car for my family in the range of Rs. 7 - 9 lakh and therefore I went to Hyundai showroom to test ride i20. Not to say the car has got great looks and this is something I cannot ignore. I got into the car and the ambience inside did not disappoint me. Though i found it more impressive from outside. The center console looks attractive and overall interior quality and features offered are also good. There is ample space at rear as well and you can easily seat three peop read more 145
I am planning to buy a good car for myself so I went to Hyundai to test-drive some of its models. I would specifically talk about i20 as this car suits my budget and has got many features to keep me engaged. The i20 has got good looks. I have checked out the Maruti Baleno also but I will say i20 is more appealing, especially the rear profile. I took on the driving seat and car was very powerful. I have driven Verna in the past, and i20 pick up reminded me of the sedan.

When we look at the record that Hyundai has made here in India, we tend to wonder just how the South Korean manufacturer overshot numerous local and international competitors to become the second largest carmaker in India. Well, when you look at a car like the Elite i20, you tend to get a glimpse of the answer. Style, comfort and performance come together in this vehicle, making it quite a likeable package.
Ever since its introduction, the Elite i20 has found favour with Indian buyers. Newer rivals have entered the fray, making things all the more competitive, but Hyundai’s premium hatch continues to get buyers into the brand’s showrooms. However, we’re not here to sing hymns of its praise. We take a close look at the Elite i20 and tell you what’s hot and what’s not.
Things We Like in Elite i20
Dual airbags standard across all variants.
Fantastic exterior styling.
The 1.4-litre diesel engine gives you quite the drive with a great gearbox adding a cherry on top.
Things We Don't Like in Elite i20
1.2-litre petrol is underwhelming.
ABS restricted to the mid and top variants.
Tall and husky people may feel confined within the limited cabin area.
Stand Out Features
The new AVN system with Bluetooth.
The Elite i20 is a great blend of style, quality, features and function. It’s not as spacious as the Baleno or Jazz, not is the petrol powertrain as engaging to use as the Swift. However, the fit and finish quality is impeccable and the Elite’s trim quality levels are a benchmark. There’s a good amount of features on offer too and let’s not forget, the car looks fantastic too.
"The Elite i20 is a great all-rounder and makes for a great buy."
Can only good design determine worth or is there something else to it? In our next comparison test we pitch Hyundai's latest ?Elite i20' with Fiat's ?Punto Evo' to tell you which of these diesels is an ideal money fitting proposition and why?
Evolution describes the stature and success of any commodity. Over the years, Hyundai's i20 has carved a niche for itself and now with the advent of Elite i20 the image of this premium hatch has only grown greater. Can it break through the shackles of Maruti Swift and recent inclusion of Fiat's Punto EVO into...
