New Hyundai i20: Which Colour Is Best?
The latest version of the premium hatchback offers a choice of eight exterior colours including two dual-tone options
The third-gen Hyundai i20 brings with it a new level of sporty styling to the premium hatchback segment. It is also the most powerful choice in the segment and the only one to currently offer 6-speed iMT(clutchless) and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmissions for its 120PS 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine. The new i20 is also more expensive than before, priced between Rs 6.8 lakh and Rs 11.18 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It comes with a choice of six monotone and two dual-tone colour options but which one should you pick? We help you decide.
This is the newest colour to be offered from the Hyundai stable and it is a distinctive one. Metallic Copper is a youthful shade but it’s not too stark. You can tell it helps the i20 stand out as a premium offering in its segment. We’d recommend this colour if you’re looking for a soothing, offbeat shade for your new hatchback.
It is important to note that we have seen this shade of the i20 in person (pictured above) and it is not as bright as showcased on the Hyundai website.
We would equate this shade of the new i20 to a nice pair of jeans. It’s a deep shade of blue that offers subtlety without looking dull. It’s not as bright as the Marina Blue that was offered on the previous-gen Elite i20, which should broaden its appeal as a tasteful choice across the buyer age groups. This could also be seen as Hyundai’s choice to rival Maruti’s successful shade, Nexa Blue. It is also our favourite shade for the i20.
It is the hero colour of the new-gen i20 in India and has been used for most of the promos. The name Fiery Red seems quite appropriate for this bright shade that accentuates the car’s sporty nature, especially with the turbo-petrol variants. It is the most sporty colour choice for the new i20. If you’re looking to buy the 120PS variant for some driving fun, this is the shade for you. The turbo-petrol variants also get a sportier grille design which looks best in this shade.
If you prefer a contrast black roof for your sporty red hatchback, Hyundai has you covered. You can opt for the dual-tone version for an extra Rs 15,000 which is offered from the Sports variant onwards.
A classic shade for any Hyundai, the Typhoon Silver is sure to be a popular one. It is a neutral choice that doesn’t take away from the i20’s premium styling. The silver paint is quite discrete, compared to the previously discussed shades. This will likely appeal to those who prefer understated colours.
The dark alternative to the silver paint option, Titan Grey is the most mature and sophisticated colour option for the new i20. It is more practical too as grime from regular use won’t be as visible on this paint, as it might be on the brighter and more colourful shades. This is as close to a black paint choice as Hyundai will offer. It gives the i20 a mature presence, allowing its sporty nature to look more menacing. It’s the most monochrome look possible as it blends best with the blacked-out elements like the B-pillar, rear windscreen surrounds, and the panel across the tailgate.
While white is usually seen as the most basic of colours, premium Hyundai models look quite good in the brand’s Polar White paint option. It is the ideal colour if you intend to apply some aftermarket decals. This option looks better in the higher variants which come with the 16-inch alloy wheels.
However, this shade looks best with the dual-tone option of the blacked-out roof and the contrast makes it look sportier too.
