January 05, 2016: Hyundai has made dual-front airbags as standard in the 2016 model year of Elite i20 and i20 Active . Earlier from last year, Hyundai Motor India Ltd introduced a 7” touchscreen Audio-Video navigation system for its highly sought after Elite i20 and i20 Active models. The new 7” touch screen Audio-Video Navigation system comes with pre-loaded Maps, satellite-based voice guided navigation, rear camera display and complete in-car entertainment and connectivity features.
Look and Style
Exterior - When it comes to the outer body, there is no comparison with other vehicles in this segment. They are just marvellous. I personally felt that White one looks like a big, huge SUV with spoilers and 16 inch Diamond cut rims. Beautiful!
The Day Time LED lamps add more beauty to the i20 Active. Feels like an Audi :)
Ground clearance has been increased which makes it more sporty and rugged. You don't feel like you are sitting on the ground while driving (which was v read more 99

This car is a run of the mill hatchback which we can expect to find in most of the roads across the country due to its highly competitive pricing and the Excellent value for money it offers. While the car does resemble the Elite across all angles, there is a lot of difference between both the offerings. Up front, the i20 Active gets a new bumper and grille – this seems like an inverted replica of the same design that is found on the Elite. The headlamps are majorly same but get projectors and da read more 10
The Hyundai i20 Active is essentially a cosmetically enhanced Elite i20. The car features add-ons like black body cladding, roof rails and different bumpers, while the 190mm ground clearance is more than the Elite i20’s as well. It also comes with some unique changes to the interior and Hyundai introduced the model to appeal to crossover/SUV crazed buyers, who still want the practicality of an urban hatchback. Here’s a look at what the i20 Active’s package includes.
Things We Like in i20 Active
Dual airbags offered as standard. Side and curtain airbags offered on top-end SX grade.
Butch crossover styling and 190mm ground clearance.
1.4-litre diesel engine offers great performance and driveability.
Things We Don't Like in i20 Active
Aqua blue interior colour (offered with Sleek Silver and Polar White exterior paint shade) may not be to everyone’s taste.
1.2-litre petrol is underwhelming.
Stand Out Features
Tangerine Orange and Aqua Blue interior colour packs.
Side and curtain airbags on top-end variant.
The Elite i20 was already a stylish, well-built and feature loaded car. The i20 Active simply offers the same traits in a more butch avatar.
"Make no mistake, it’s not an off-roader, but thanks to the raised ground clearance, it can deal with rough roads better."
Make no mistake, it’s not an off-roader, but thanks to the raised ground clearance, it can deal with rough roads better. It’s still a great city car and offers the easy of use you’d expect of a hatchback, but thanks to the cosmetic changes, it has more road presence too. Choosing it over the Elite i20 is primarily a matter of personal preference when it comes to styling.
Cross variants of hatchbacks have been around for quite some time now. The current scene has pretty much seen the most action with quite a few manufacturers getting into the scene. You already have the Volkswagen Cross Polo and the Toyota Etios Liva Cross battling it out and now Hyundai has decided to get into the scene as well. The new Elite i20 came across as a huge success for Hyundai and the Korean giant has decided to cash in further on its success by bringing in a cross variant of the same as well. We take the car for an extensive first drive to find out if its just a cladded hatchback or is there more than meets the eye!
