In case you are eyeing the most fuel-efficient version of the third-gen i20, a diesel variant should be your pick

Update (05/11/2020):Hyundai has launched the third-gen i20 with prices beginning from Rs 6.79 lakh (ex-showroom). Read more about it here.

  • The new i20 shares its engines with the Venue.

  • Its petrol variants will offer a choice of three automatic transmissions.

  • Hyundai won’t be offering the diesel engine with an automatic gearbox.

The third-gen Hyundai i20 will be launched on November 5. It will be sold with three engine options: two petrol and a diesel. The turbo-petrol and diesel are new to the nameplate, while the naturally aspirated petrol has been carried over. We have now got our hands on the engine-wise ARAI certified fuel efficiency figures which are as follows:

  • 1.2-litre manual- 21kmpl

  • 1.2-litre CVT- 19.65kmpl

  • 1.0-litre turbo-petrol iMT (clutchless manual)- 20kmpl

  • 1.0-litre turbo-petrol DCT- 20.28kmpl

  • 1.5-litre diesel Manual- 25kmpl

The most fuel efficient model is unsurprisingly the new diesel, followed by the manual 1.2-litre petrol. The DCT (dual-clutch automatic) equipped 1.0-litre closely matches the certified efficiency of the 1.2-litre manual. The 1.2-litre petrol with CVT is the least fuel efficient here. 

The new i20 shares its engines with the Venue. Here’s a look at the engine-gearbox combos:

1.2-litre petrol

1.0-litre turbo-petrol

1.5-litre diesel










5-speed MT/ CVT

6-speed iMT*/ 7-speed DCT

Apart from the specifications, we also know the variant lineup and the colour options of the new i20. It will be offered in four variants [Magna, Sportz, Asta and Asta (O)] and in a total of six monotone and two dual-tone exterior shades. Features on offer will include a sunroof, a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and a semi-digital instrument cluster.
