The next-generation (2020) Hyundai i20 Active has been spotted in India during one of its test runs. The car, despite its camouflage, seems to be bigger in size than the current version. It is expected to sport a number of mechanical changes along with design upgrades.



The 2020 Hyndai i20 Active is slated to be unveiled at next year’s Auto Expo. Commercial launch is expected to happen in mid-2020.

The entry-level model of the new Hyundai i20 Active is likely to be hauled by a turbocharged, 1.0-litre BS-VI engine. The motor produces 120PS maximum power and 172Nm peak torque. It will be mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox while the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT) may be available as an option. Other engine choices could include a 1.5-litre diesel motor and the existing 1.2-litre petrol unit from the Grand i10 Nios.



Images of the 2020 Hyundai i20 Active that are now available online, have revealed the car in its production-ready form. The crossover hatchback has faux skid plates on the rear bumper, flared wheel arches, and roof rails. The rear taillights are likely to be LED units. The India-specific version of the car is expected to have wireless charging, climate control, and touchscreen infotainment with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support. The next-generation Hyundai i20 Active may get the BlueLink connected technology which debuted in the Hyundai Venue. The technology supports internet-enabled functions, including voice command. 



The 2020 Hyundai i20 Active is almost certain to command a premium over its current price because of the added features. The car’s existing version is priced between ₹7.74 lakh to ₹9.93 lakh.

The next-generation i20, when launched, would lock horns with the Toyota Etios Cross, Honda Jazz, Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Toyota Glanza, and the Volkswagen Polo in its class. It will also rival the upcoming Tata Altroz.
