Hyundai i20 Elite came out in 2014 in India and three years down the road it has been the same ever since. The entry of new cars like the Maruti Suzuki Baleno in the segment has created quite a stir in this segment and Hyundai wants to make sure it is still the tope contender in the race with the i20 2018 facelift. The new Hyundai i20 facelift is slated to launch next year and was spied testing on Indian roads under heavy camouflage.
What is all the new Hyundai i20 Facelift about to bring?
Hyundai is facing tough competition in the premium hatchback category due to the newer cars like the Maruti Suzuki Baleno. To maintain the sale of the i20 Hyundai is trying hard to keep the car fresh and hence is working on the 2018 facelift which will be showcased at the Auto Expo 2018 in Delhi. The new Hyundai i20 will get a redesigned grille and bumpers which will be in line with the new desing language by teh Korean company that we saw on the Xcent and the Verna. The changes in the headlamps and tail lights are pretty much certain with LED inserts. An updated infotainment touch screen system with navigation as well as Apple Carplay and Android Auto might also come with the new Hyundai i20 facelift in 2018. Mechanically the car is believed to come with the same engine options – the 1.2-litre petrol and the 1.4-litre diesel. However, with keeping with the trend of powerful hatchbacks being a thing in India we cannot rule out a 1.6-litre diesel from the Verna in the updated Hyundai i20 2018 facelift. Hyundai has been the top player in the market when it comes to additional features and the trend might continue with the new updated i20 as well.
Launch Date and Price Details of the new i20 2018 facelift:
The new Hyundai i20 facelift might be showcased at the Auto Expo 2018 in Delhi and will be launched soon after. The pricing of the car might not change much due to stiff competition in this price bracket by the Maruti Suzuki Baleno and the Honda Jazz. Expect the new Hyundai i20 2018 facelift to be priced at a premium of 30-40 thousand Indian Rupees over the outgoing model.
