Exterior Design Enhancements

The i20 facelift receives subtle yet impactful updates to its exterior design. Notable changes include a redesigned front grille with a prominent black surround connecting it to the headlamps. The top-tier trim now boasts full LED headlamps with revised LED daytime running lamp signatures, enhancing both style and visibility. The iconic Hyundai logo has been repositioned to the base of the bonnet and has undergone a sleek 2D redesign.

The front bumper features distinctive arrow-shaped inlets on each side, albeit without fog lamps. The front chin sports a more pronounced splitter-like element. While the overall profile remains largely consistent, the 16-inch alloy wheels have received a fresh design. At the rear, a revised bumper with a prominent dual-tone finish, relocated reflectors, and a faux-silver skid plate complete the refreshed look.

Paint Options

The Hyundai i20 facelift is available in a striking new Amazon Grey paint shade, joining the existing color palette, which includes Atlas White, Titan Gray, Typhoon Silver, Starry Night, and Fiery Red. Additionally, dual-tone options are available, combining Atlas White with a Black Roof or Fiery Red with a Black Roof.

Interior Updates and Features

Inside the cabin, the i20 facelift retains its stylish layout with a key change being the introduction of a dual-tone black and grey finish for the dashboard. The semi-leatherette seat upholstery in the top-spec trim adds a touch of sophistication and improves the perception of space within the cabin.

Hyundai has also made usability enhancements, introducing a physical volume control knob at the base of the touchscreen, replacing the previous haptic touch buttons. Additional interior features include revised ambient lighting, leatherette padding on the door armrests, puddle lamps with a welcome function, and the introduction of Hyundai’s ‘Sounds of Nature’ feature.

The i20 facelift maintains its tech-savvy character with a 10.25-inch touchscreen, all-digital instrument cluster, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a seven-speaker Bose sound system, wireless phone charger, single-pane sunroof, automatic climate control, 60+ connected features, OTA updates, voice commands, and Type-C charging ports.

Safety Features

Safety is paramount, and the i20 facelift delivers with standard features including six airbags, ABS, EBD, ESC, hill assist control, three-point seatbelts with reminders for all seats, a reverse parking camera, TPMS, and automatic headlamps with an escort function.

Engine Specifications

Under the hood, the i20 facelift exclusively features a 1.2-liter, four-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine. This powerplant is available with a choice of a 5-speed manual or CVT transmission, delivering 83hp with the manual and 88hp with the CVT, accompanied by 115Nm of peak torque.

It’s worth noting that Hyundai has phased out the 120hp 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine from the standard i20 lineup. However, this engine is set to make a comeback with the i20 N Line facelift, reserved exclusively for this performance-oriented model, as confirmed by Hyundai India. Stay tuned for more information on the launch date of the i20 N Line facelift.

In response to the BS6 Phase II emission norms, Hyundai had already discontinued the diesel engine option for the i20.

In conclusion, the Hyundai i20 facelift brings a wealth of improvements to an already popular model, offering enhanced style, features, and performance options. With its attractive pricing and comprehensive range of trims, the i20 facelift is poised to make a significant impact on the Indian automotive market.
