Hyundai Elite i20 facelift

Hyundai Elite i20 facelift

Hyundai India recently launched the Elite i20 facelift at the Auto Expo 2018. The Elite i20 facelift now comes with a high-gloss front grille, new diamond-cut 16-inch alloy wheels, air curtain, Tucson-like DRLs around fog lamps, a new tailgate design, new taillamps, and glossy C-pillar. The new Hyundai Elite i20 facelift also features a segment-first dual tone exterior colour option that we feel could prove to be quite popular. The Hyundai Elite i20 facelift is priced at Rs 5.34 lakh for the base petrol variant and Rs 6.73 lakh for the base diesel variant. The Elite i20 facelift is offered in four variants, namely Era, Magna Executive, Sportz, Asta and Asta(O).
The base variant Era comes equipped with front airbags, ABS, central locking, seat belt pre-tensioners, engine immobilizers, two tone beige and black interior, adjustable front seat headrest, front power windows and internally adjustable mirror. Magna Executive is the variant that is positioned above the base and comes equipped with body coloured door mirrors and handles, wheel covers, 2-DIN integrated radio with MP3 player, front and rear speakers with Aux-in and USB connectivity. Additionally, it gets rear AC vents, and electrically adjustable mirrors.
The Sportz variant of the Elite i20 facelift comes equipped with fog lamps, rear defogger, mirror embedded with indicators, height adjustable driver seat, bluetooth connectivity and multifunction controls on the steering wheel. The variant placed over the Sportz is the Asta that comes with reverse parking sensors, rear view cameras, R15 gun metal finish alloys, 17.77cm touchscreen with navigation, MirrorLink, CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and Arkamys surround sound system. We believe this is the variant that one should go for for someone who needs the best of features and not pay the premium for the most steep variant.
The most premium variant of the Hyundai Elite i20 facelift is the Asta(O) that comes with side and curtain airbags, automatic projector headlamps, keyless entry, height adjustable seat belt – driver and passenger, cornering lamps, LED DRL and positioning lamps, R16 diamond-cut alloys, push button Start/Stop, automatic climate control.
Hyundai is known for adding a long list of features in its cars. The Elite i20 is no different. It gets the longest feature list among all three and also a few unique features. The Elite i20 gets projector headlamps, dual tone body that makes it look unique. The dual tone body paint is not available with any other car in the segment. The car also gets cooled glove box, seat pockets, rear boot lamp, sliding front armrest, sunglass holder, making the cabin plush and comfortable. It is the only car to get rear AC vent in the segment.
Safety-wise, the Elite i20 leads among the three too. The top-end variant of the car comes with 6-airbags, which is highest among three. There is ABS, reverse parking camera with sensors, auto up/down window with pinch guard, auto headlamp, speed sensing auto door lock, ISOFIX seat hooks and smart pedal. The smart pedal works by disabling the accelerator pedal and applies brake only when both the pedals are simultaneously used during panic braking or similar situations.
Hyundai also offers connected Auto Link that is also a first in segment feature. Users can now connect their phone to the vehicle and check the status of the car, driving pattern, know the last location, get roadside assistance, and get service appointments.
