The spy shots hint at minor design changes to the front of the premium hatchback

Hyundai i20 Facelift

  • The updated i20 is expected to arrive in India by early 2024.
  • To get revised headlamps and taillamps designs.
  • Likely to get a few new features too.
  • Expected to continue with the current range of petrol powertrains.
  • Diesel options may get axed in the face of stricter emission norms.

Only two years after the current generation of Hyundai's premium hatchback was introduced, it is due to get a minor makeover in 2024. The latest spy shots show a lower-variant test mule covered in camouflage, but still hints at potential design tweaks.

Exterior design revisions

Hyundai i20 Facelift Front

As a facelift, the overall shape of the i20 seems unchanged. Based on the picture of the front-end, the car may get modest changes such as refreshed headlights and bumper. The grille also appears to have a new mesh pattern, but that can be market-specific.

Hyundai i20 Facelift Rear

From the side, the premium hatchback revealed wheel covers fitted on steel rims, implying that the lower trims of the redesigned i20 will have the same. Also, the C-pillar section appears to have been altered, since it is concealed.

Around the back, the updated premium hatchback could receive all-LED taillamps and a new bumper. Because the test mule appears to be a lower variant, it lacks a rear wiper.

Minimal changes expected to the cabin

Hyundai i20 Interior

The interior of the facelifted hatchback is yet to be seen but the 2023 i20 may include some new equipment. At present, the i20 in India features a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a digital driver's display, an air purifier, connected car tech, auto LED headlights, and a sunroof.

Changes to the powertrains

Hyundai i20 Engine

Hyundai is unlikely to make significant mechanical changes as part of the facelift. It is expected to carry forward its petrol engines but the diesel option may get discontinued in India with the emission norms set to get stricter in the near future. The details of the current i20 engines are mentioned below:


1.2-litre NA

1.0-litre Turbo

1.5-litre diesel










5-speed MT/CVT

6-speed iMT/7-speed DCT

6-speed MT

Hyundai could also consider introducing the mild-hybrid petrol powertrain in India with the facelift which is already available with the i20 in other markets.

Currently, the Hyundai i20 is retailed between Rs 7.07 lakh and 11.62 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The facelifted model could be unveiled globally in the second half of 2023, and will be launched in early 2024. It would continue to rival the likes of the Maruti Baleno, Toyota Glanza, Honda Jazz and Tata Altroz.
