The premium hatchback is expected to be launched in mid-2020


  • Hyundai’s premium hatchback has been spotted testing on our shores multiple times.

  • It will be offered with three BS6 engines including the Venue’s 1.0-litre turbo petrol.

  • Its feature list is expected to include connected car tech, wireless charging, and sunroof.

  • New Elite i20 will continue to rival the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Honda Jazz, among others.

Earlier, we brought you a list of cars that Hyundai could possibly showcase at Auto Expo 2020. It included the next-gen Creta as well as the Verna facelift. But now our sources have told us that Hyundai won’t be showcasing the third-gen Elite i20 at the expo.

The third-gen 2020 Hyundai Elite i20 will get a new design in line with the carmaker’s latest models like the Nios. Exterior highlights include projector headlamps with DRLs, a shark fin antenna, and even a sunroof. What’s more, connected car tech, a digital instrument cluster, and wireless charging will also be offered on the third-gen Elite i20.

The new Elite i20 will be offered with three BS6-compliant engines: two petrol and one diesel. It will get the Grand i10 Nios' 1.2-litre petrol unit that puts out 83PS and 113Nm. The second engine will be the Venue's 1.0-litre turbo-petrol likely in 120PS/173Nm tune. In the Venue, it is offered with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT (dual-clutch transmission) gearbox. On the other hand, the new Elite i20 will get the Seltos’ 1.5-litre BS6-compliant diesel engine, although in a detuned state. Kia offers this engine with either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed AT in the Seltos, where it churns out 115PS and 250Nm.

The third-gen Elite i20 is expected to be priced at a slight premium over the current hatchback. For reference, the second-gen i20 retails between Rs 5.52 lakh and Rs 9.34 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It is expected to be launched in India by mid-2020 and will continue to rival the Maruti Baleno/Toyota Glanza, Honda Jazz, VW Polo and the recently unveiled Tata Altroz.
