Will get machine cut (diamond cut) alloy wheels right from launch, spied on the test vehicle.
Base variants will still get steel wheels.
Long feature list will remain.
The upcoming generation of Hyundai’s Elite i20 is undergoing testing right now, in preparation for a 2020 launch, and it has been spotted with a new feature: machine-cut alloy wheels, aka diamond-cut alloy wheels.
The i20 has always been one of the frontrunners when it comes to features, and the new i20 will be no different. It has been spotted testing with machine-cut alloy wheels, which are the rage these days. They are also called by different names like ‘diamond-cut alloy wheels’ or ‘dual-tone alloy wheels’. And they have made their presence felt in the i20’s test mules, which have been spotted with them. One of the designs spotted is surprisingly similar to the kind the 2019 Maruti Suzuki Baleno uses, while the other is quite a different 8-spoke design.
The i20 will debut with a whole host of features, as befits a Hyundai – Hyundai will aim to regain its position in the segment with the model with the most features. The driveline will consist of petrol engines (for now at least), which will definitely include the 1.2-liter four-cylinder petrol. The 1.0-liter turbo-petrol from the Venue will also probably make it to the i20, to offer the automatic transmission option and to position it head-to-head with the Baleno RS. Both these engines will be BS Vl compliant. The inclusion of diesel might happen at a later date.
The i20 is rumored to get a completely new interior, including a large touchscreen infotainment system that will also sport the BlueLink connectivity that we first experienced in the Venue. Of course, it will be larger and will offer just as much interior space – if not more – as the best in class. The third-gen i20 is scheduled to launch in 2020 and will compete with the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Toyota Glanza, and the upcoming Tata Altroz.
