Hyundai i20 Active Expert Review

0 Shares

Introduction

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.

Pros
  • 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.
Cons
  • 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.

CarDekho Verdict

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.
