We are now just 4 days away from India’s biggest Automobile festival – Auto Expo 2018 and India’s second-biggest carmaker Hyundai is set to charm the visitors with many global debuts and will also include showcasing the new facelift version of its popular hatch Hyundai i20 2018. Hyundai i20 2018 has been in India for a long time and is due to a mid-life facelift.
The new Hyundai i20 2018 facelift is expected to get many exterior and interior styling changes and a few new features. After Hyundai Elantra and 2018 Verna and Hyundai Grand i10 facelifts, Hyundai i20 is set to follow Hyundai’s latest design philosophy. The face of new Hyundai i10 gets a new front grille that looks a bit similar to that in current Hyundai Xcent but in a honeycomb pattern. It will also feature a new headlamp cluster which is now integrated with LED DRLs. New front and rear bumpers and also new fog lamp cluster will compete for the exterior changes on 2018 Hyundai i20 along with new alloy wheels.
On the inside, expect Hyundai India to change a bit of interior to add a premium touch. New color schemes, redesigned dashboard and a new infotainment system that supports both Apple Car Play and Android Auto along with Bluetooth and navigation.
Mechanically, Hyundai i20 2018 that will be showcased at Auto Expo 2018 will continue to get the same 1.2L petrol engine and 1.2L diesel engine paired with 5-speed Manual Transmission and 6-Speed Manual respectively. The petrol version of Hyundai i20 also is available with an automatic gearbox.
Hyundai i20 has been the company’s best selling car after Hyundai Grand i10 and rivals the likes of Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Honda Jazz, and Volkswagen Polo. We also expect the company to showcase the facelift of Hyundai Active i20 at the Auto Expo 2018.
