i20 promises a new level of 'luxury' to hatchback section of the market.
The Elite, as Hyundai prefers to call it, is a fine example of that, with an array of crisp lines and features that give the car an all-new look, and yet, manages to retain hints of its predecessor's design.
It has a bigger wheelbase, is marginally wider, but has actually lost a few millimetres in length. Cabin space is generous in terms of legroom. The seats are reasonably big and give enough overall support. At the rear, three people can sit without feeling hemmed-in. The angle to which the seat back can be reclined is sufficient, and there is good under-thigh support, although the bench could've offered more under-thigh cushioning.
It's a well-laid out cabin, the Elite's, with a host of features like a dashboard-integrated music system, climate control, and USB and Bluetooth connectivity. The steering is big but easy to grip, and the twin-dial instrument cluster is neat. The quality of plastics, fabric and trim are high, as are the levels of fit and finish, all of which are enough to give you the upmarket feel you need from a premium hatchback.
