The new Hyundai i20 facelift edition got launched at this year’s Auto Expo. The new car has obviously got some refreshed styling and some features to surprise you. The Hyundai i20 features a new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment, rear AC vents and slidable armrests as the major changes.
The car would still have the same engine options as the previous model and have the same output and mileage figures. It has, however, received some features and tweaks to help it compete with its rivals.
The Exterior Modifications on the Facelift – New Hyundai i20
The new design gets a new bumper and a larger grille. The projector headlamps with the LED DRLs would blend quite nicely with the redesigned front bumpers of the newly redesigned model. The side profile gets some adjustments too. There is a new set of 16-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels. The rest remains same along with the semi-floating roof design.

The rear AC vents and the sliding armrests are new additions that would definitely please the customers. The dual airbags and the ABS would now come as standard across all the variants of the new Hyundai i20. The top ASTA variant would get 6 airbags and the ISOFIX child seat mounts.

The Engine Upgrades
No changes were made to the Hyundai i20 in its facelift. However, there is a new CVT unit that has been paired to the 1.2-litre petrol engine to offer a power output of 83 bhp and 115 Nm of peak torque.
The 4-speed torque converter has bee replaced that used to be offered with the 1.4-litre engine. The CVT is offered in the mid and top-level trims.
The old model was quite outdated when compared to the rivals like the Maruti Suzuki Baleno or the Volkswagen Polo. The sales figures were going down but the new generation has the capacity to make up for it.
