Hyundai Elite i20, in an unexpected turn of events, has lost some of the comfort features offered with it, as per a report. All the variants of Elite i20 in petrol and diesel fuel trims witness these changes and surprisingly, the pricing is unchanged. The mechanicals of the hatch are unchanged and it continues with the same set of petrol and diesel powertrains. For those asking, these changes in features are not applicable on Hyundai i20 Active.
Talking about the changes in length, the i20 hatch would now be offered with different seat upholstery and without a ticket holder in all its trims. The base Era variant loses out on passenger vanity mirror. Magna trim witness no other changes apart from the dicontinuation of ticket holder and different seat upholstery. Moving to the Sportz trim, it misses out on a couple of premium features such as on the leather-wrapped steering and gearknob, boot lamp and driver window auto up function. Furthermore, the Elite i20 Sportz would now be sold with only one folding key instead of the earlier two. Also, the Sportz (O) variant would be available without the leather-wrapped steering and gearknob as well.
Last but not least, the range-topping Asta grade has sacrificed one 12V power outlet out of the two offered earlier and now would be available with one only. This move from the South-Korean automajor seems to be quite contradictory as recently it was reported that the company was mulling to introduce a touch-screen infotainment system with the hatch due to the arrival of its fierce competitor Honda Jazz with the same system. Just so you know, all-new Honda Jazz was launched with several bells and whistles, and it's two top variants V and VX get leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob. Mechanically, the Hyundai Elite i20 retains the 1.2L petrol and 1.4L diesel engines as before.
