Hyundai India is all set to introduce the Elite i20 automatic in the country. But prior to the official launch, the brochure of the automatic variant has been leaked online. The official brochure reveals that the South-Korean automaker would offer the automatic gearbox with the Magna trim, henceby limiting the features. Contrary to the earlier reports that suggested a festive season launch, the Hyundai i20 automatic might launch in the next 7-10 days in India.

Speaking of the Hyundai i20 Magna, it comes loaded with dual front airbags as standard feature. It misses out on several high-end features such as Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) & Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Alloy wheels, Projector headlamps, Keyless entry, Rear parking camera, Touch-screen infotainment system and Automatic climate control. The company is offering the i20 AT with the 1.4L dual VTVT petrol engine, while the manual variants are powered by a 1.2L engine. Hence, Hyundai has presented the automatic variant in Magna trim instead of the range-topping Asta trim as it would be quite costly due to the increase in excise duty from 12.5 percent to 24 percent. The increase in excise duty would raise the price heavily and make it out of consideration for several prospective buyers.

Know Everything about the Hyundai i20 automatic

Talking about the 1.4L dual VTVT petrol engine, it delivers a maximum power of 99bhp at 6000rpm and peak torque of 132Nm at 4000rpm. As compared to the manual variants' 1.2L petrol engine, it returns 17bhp of more power and 17Nm of more torque. It is mated to a 4-speed torque-converter automatic transmission. Recently, Hyundai launched the i20 in Indonesia with the identical engine and gearbox setup. The Elite i20 automatic would rival the likes of Maruti Baleno CVT, Honda Jazz CVT and Volkswagen Polo GT TSI in the Indian market.
