Overview

This is the all-new i20 and a car that not only Indian, but people from around the world have been waiting for sometime now. The global premier did take place in India and needless to say, we think the wait for worth it. The new i20 looks great and certainly is one of the better looking cars in the segment. Hyundai has always launched great looking cars in India and this new model is no different. Making use of the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 philosophy, this new i20 instantly looks stunning. The car now gets a new bold front design that is dominated by a huge single frame hexagonal grille and sharp swept back headlamps. The cleverly designed front fog lamps sit between black housing for the lower air dam and look neat. 

Side on, you notice the rising shoulder line and sporty 16-inch diamond cut alloy wheels as well as the blackened c-pillar. The rear three quarters is one of the best angles to look at this new model - the wide 3 step wrap around tail lamps look unique and very upmarket. The new i20 is slighty wider as well and all together, this thing looks stunning in flesh. 
The interior of the Elite i20 are a class act too! The fit and finish, quality of materials, cabin layout everything is top-notch here. There's a generous amount of room for the occupants as well. The interiors sport a nice mix of black and beige, imparting a more upmarket look than the previous model. The centre-console design is inspired by a particular premium car brand but, no one should be complaining about it. The rear-bench is flat, and offers generous amount of leg- and knee-room. There are also rear air conditioning vents for occupants at the back seat. Overall, the interiors compliment the stylish and contermporary exterior of the car perfectly.
 
On the engine front, Hyundai has retained the same 1.2-litre petrol and 1.4-diesel units though the bigger 1.4-litre petrol engine has been ditched and so has the automatic transsmission.  
 
On the pricing front, Hyundai has done a very good job by increasing the price of the new car by a very small margin only. Petrol versions start at Rs 4.90 lakh while the diesel range starts at Rs 6.10 lakh. Considering its fresh design and high quality interiors along with a long list of standard features, we think this pricing makes the stunning new i20 a pretty good deal in the segment. 

 

 

 

Interior

On the inside, there is simply no comparison with the older version. Open the door and the first thing that hits is you is the amount of space on offer along with the new dual tone interiors that is a mix of black and beige. The steering seems a lot like the Grand i10 and the Xcent but similarities end here - the Supervision instrumentation cluster is all-new and looks nice. 
 
The cental console and the premium looking audio system seems to have been inspired by a particular german car brand. we also love the way the beige fascia wraps over the central air-vents. The climate control sits under the audio system and attention to detail is impressive. There are a lot of cubby holes around and a front arm rest makes adds to the convenience. 
 
At the back, space is very impressive and the rear air-con vents are a thoughtful added feature. All in all, the new i20 looks brilliant both from the outside and inside.

In terms of equipment, while new i20 does not get more than 2 airbags or a sunroof, the top end Asta gets features like rear camera with park assist, keyless entry and start-stop, cooled glovebox, front armrest, rear air-con vents, audio system with 8 speakers and 1GB of internal memory, climate control sytem, electric foldable outside mirrors, auto headlamps etc.

Exterior

Compared to its predecessor, the Elite i20 sports a mature European look that looks sportier and more stylish than ever before.

Mileage Running Cost

  • Arai Rated Economy

    The Hyundai Elite i20 petrol has an ARAI certified fuel economy of 18.60 km/l for Era and Magna variants and 18.24 kpl for and Asta, Sportz, Sportz (O) variants. The diesel version of the Elite i20 has an ARAI certified economy of 22.54 kpl for Era and Magna variants & 21.76 kpl for the Sportz, Sportz (O) and Asta.

  • Tank Range

    The Elite i20 has a fuel tank capacity of 45 litres, resulting in about 810 km (diesel) and 630 km (petrol) of range in mixed driving conditions.

Comfort Suspension

The Elite i20 has a balanced suspension setup that offers a comfortable and supple ride quality. The front suspensions is a MacPherson Strut setup that is tuned more towards comfort, although, unlike the previous model the Elite i20 has neutral handling behaviour. 

Comfort and Suspension

  • Comfort

    The Elite i20 offers a comfortable and pliant ride-quality.

  • Front Suspension

    The front suspension is Macpherson Strut bars with coil springs and provide balanced road-holding characteristics,

  • Rear Suspension

    The rear suspension is torsion beam-type and offers a pliant ride quality.

Engine Performance

The 1.4-litre diesel engine on the Elite i20 has been carried over from the previous model. Only this time it's more refined and has been greatly tuned for Indian traffic conditions. While on the move, there's hardly any turbo-lag and the Elite i20 pulls away effortlessly even with the slightest of throttle inputs. The torque delivery is much more linear than before, and it feels adequate throughout the rev-range. Even at lower rpms, the Elite i20 feels sprightly and the pace builds-up briskly regardless of the gear you are in!

While driving in city, the diesel engine offers excellent driveability, meaning less downshifts. On open-stretches, the diesel engine again offers oodles of torque and the Elite i20 proves out to be a great mile-muncher. The only gripe here would be the long clutch-travel, which can get cumbersome in bumper to bumper traffic. But like mentioned before, the fact that it has a sweet torquey diesel motor with tractable performance, the negatives can be overlooked quite comfortably. 

Like the diesel, the petrol engine on the Elite i20 has also been retained from the outgoing model as well. It's a 1.2-litre engine. In comparison to the diesel, the Elite i20 petrol feels a bit sluggish, and a wee bit underpowered. The engine is smooth and revs freely, but it does not have the get up and go attitude of its diesel counterpart. The driveability is satisfactory for intra-city commutes, but on the highway the Elite i20 petrol runs out of puff. Overtaking requires a lot of work with the gear-shifter. That said, for a daily non-enthusiatic commute, the petrol Elite i20 does the job just fine. It's efficient if not fast. And if you do not like the concept of 'pedal-to-the-metal' everytime you are behind the steering wheel, the Elite i20 petrol is an adequate performer. 

 

 

Engine Performance

  • Acceleration

    The Elite i20 diesel engine has a strong punch and it builds up pace briskly. The petrol Elite i20, however, feels a tad under-powered in comparison.

  • In Gear Acceleration

    The gear-ratios on both petrol and diesel Elite i20 have been ideally designed for Indian road-conditions. The in-gear acceleration is impressive!

  • Gearbox

    The gearbox is slick, and the gear ratios have been designed in accordance with Indian road conditions. The gear-lever also offers positive and short throws.

  • Power

    The petrol version of Elite i20 develops 83PS @ 6,000 rpm. The diesel Elite i20 produces 90PS @ 4,000 rpm.

  • Torque

    The petrol version of Elite i20 develops 117Nm @ 4,000 rpm The diesel Elite i20 produces 220Nm of torque between 1,500 - 2,750 rpm.

  • NVH Levels

    The NVH levels are excellent in the Elite i20,

Braking Safety

The previous-gen Hyundai i20 was always criticised for its body-roll and nervous handling, especially at high-speeds. With the new Elite i20, Hyundai seems to have addressed to the issue. The Elite i20 has not only matured on dynamic front, but it also feels more poised and its handling more predictable than ever before. Even though the suspension is softly-sprung, the Elite i20 has a compliant on-road behaviour. The steering weighs up nicely as the numbers climb in the speedometer, and feels more connected than earlier. Handling around the bends has always improved vastly. The Elite i20 does not wallow or roll like experienced in the previous models. The straight-line stability is also much much better than before, courtesy a tweaked suspension setup. 

While Hyundai has dynamically improved the Elite i20, it has to be added that it still isn't a corner carver or segment best. The steering feels a little vague and inert in comparison to some of its rivals. 

In the previous-gen i20, Hyundai used to offer disc brakes on all four wheels. However, in the Elite i20, disc brakes on rear wheels have been given a miss in favour of drum brakes. That said, the braking performance is still top-notch, and it maintains composure no matter how hard you stomp on the brake pedal.

Safety kit on the Elite i20 includes ABS, driver and passenger airbags, automatic door unlock in case of an impact etc.
