Hyundai has finally introduced an automatic transmission for the Elite i20 facelift, which, since its launch in February 2018, was available with a manual transmission only. With this, the premium hatchback from Hyundai will go head to head with the automatic versions of the Maruti Baleno and the Honda Jazz. We have already compared it with the segment-leader Baleno, now let’s see how it stands its ground against the Honda Jazz on paper.

  • The Elite i20 is longer and wider than the Jazz. It also has a longer wheelbase, which could result in more space on the inside

  • The Jazz, however, has the larger boot of the two

  • Despite being powered by same capacity engines, the Jazz edges past the Elite i20 by 7PS. However, in terms of torque, the Elite i20 beats the Jazz by 5Nm

  • The Jazz manual has a better claimed fuel efficiency figure than the Elite i20 manual. Since claimed FEs for CVTs generally hover around their manual counterpart’s figures, we expect the Jazz CVT to be more efficient than Elite i20. Hyundai is yet to reveal the fuel economy figures for the Elite i20 CVT
