KBC 2023 Contestant Mayank Awarded Hyundai i20 After Winning Rs 1 Crore
He is the youngest contestant on the show to win the Rs 1 crore prize
The i20 facelift was launched in September 2023 in India.
It is available in five broad variants: Era, Magna, Sportz, Asta, and Asta (O).
Offered with a single 1.2-litre petrol powertrain.
Features on board the i20 include a 10.25-inch touchscreen, auto AC, and 6 airbags.
It’s been a few months since India’s popular TV game show, Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC), started airing in its fifteenth season. The show, hosted by none other than Amitabh Bachchan, recently got its youngest winner, Mayank, to bag the Rs 1 crore cheque, which also got him a Hyundai i20 as an award. Early on in this season, Jaskaran Singh, the first contestant to win Rs 1 crore, also got the Hyundai Exter as a bonus prize.
While Mayank quit the quiz after winning Rs 1 crore, had he played on and won Rs 7 crore, he would have bagged the new Hyundai Verna instead. That said, we don’t know the variant of the premium hatchback that was handed over to the winner, though we suspect it to be the fully loaded Asta (O) trim.
Hyundai i20: A Summary
Hyundai’s premium hatchback was launched in its third-generation avatar back in 2020 in India, and was given a refresh recently. The i20 is sold in five broad variants – Era, Magna, Sportz, Asta, and Asta (O). More details about the updates made to the Hyundai i20 can be found in our in-depth launch story.
What’s Under The Hood?
The regular i20 is offered with a 1.2-litre petrol engine (up to 88 PS/115 Nm), paired with a 5-speed MT or CVT. With the refresh, the turbo-petrol engine is now limited to the i20 N Line, which also got a minor design update.
Loaded With Tech
Hyundai has equipped the i20 with a bunch of features, including a 10.25-inch touchscreen, a single-pane sunroof, an air purifier, push-button start/stop, and wireless phone charging.
Passenger safety is taken care of by six airbags, electronic stability control (ESC), a tyre pressure monitoring system, and a reversing camera.
