Sir, I'm also aware of all these features in SX (Diesel) model, but my question was, Why the top SX model hasn't been Launched in Petrol variant or there is any chance of Launching it in near future?

Hyundai i20 active is a very economical car for long rides as it provide an unmatched mileage of 18-19kmpl on highways. When average running of the car is more than 1000km per month then diesel car is more preferred over petrol. The i20 active is preferred by various users due to its engine performance, safety measures, and high-end features. Hyundai active i20 1.4SX (diesel variant) and 1.2S (petrol variant) does not come with many differences. Major feature difference include passenger airbag, automatic headlamps, adjustable steering, push button start and keyless entry, automatic climate control and air quality check.

Hey Sachin, 
It is quite obvious trend that the diesel variants of the top models are people’s preference. Hyundai didn’t want to launch a petrol version of the SX version, probably because it was not sure of its acceptability in the market. Those who would go for the SX variant, will go naturally go for the Diesel version of the variant. Very few would try out the petrol version. 
There is no such implication yet, that Hyundai is going to launch a petrol version of the top variant. Chances are very less that they will come up with such a version in near future.
