Hyundai i20 Gets Two New Automatic Variants
Expanding the variant lineup of the i20, Hyundai India has silently launched two new automatic trims: 1.2 CVT Asta (O) and 1.0 DCT Sportz – priced at Rs 10.51 lakh and Rs 9.76 lakh, respectively (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Korean carmaker has also used this opportunity to revise the features list of the i20. But before we head to the details, here’s a look at the complete price list of this premium hatchback: –
|Variant||1.2 Petrol||1.0 Turbo-Petrol||1.5 Diesel|
|Magna||Rs 6.98 lakh (MT)||–||Rs 8.28 lakh (MT)|
|Sportz*||Rs 7.88 lakh (MT)|
Rs 8.90 lakh (CVT)
|Rs 8.78 lakh (iMT)|
Rs 9.76 lakh (DCT) (NEW)
|Rs 9.14 lakh (MT)|
|Asta*||Rs 8.75 lakh (MT)|
Rs 9.95 lakh (CVT)
|Rs 9.99 lakh (iMT)|
Rs 10.81 lakh (DCT)
|Asta (O)*||Rs 9.49 lakh (MT)|
Rs 10.51 lakh (CVT) (NEW)
|Rs 11.33 lakh (DCT)||Rs 10.70 lakh (MT)|
- With the introduction of 1.0 DCT Sportz, the Hyundai i20 DCT automatic has become more accessible for buyers. It is Rs 1.05 lakh more affordable than the 1.0-liter Asta DCT trim.
- People buying the Hyundai i20 for moderate use will now get the convenience of CVT with its fully-loaded Asta (O) trim as well.
- The diesel engine, on the other hand, will continue to be available with manual tranmission only.
As far as the feature changes are concerned, most of the i20 variants have gained some new features. The changes include: –
- The base-spec Magna trim gets gunmetal finished wheel covers instead of silver.
- Addition of automatic climate control and cruise control to the 1.0 iMT Sportz trim.
- The Asta trim now gets an electric sunroof as standard fitment. Earlier, it was limited to its 1.0-litre iMT trim. However, the brand has now replaced its 10.1-inch infotainment system with an 8-inch unit. It also witnesses the deletion of connected car features.
- The range-topping Asta (O) variant gains some additional voice commands for the Blue Link connected car tech.
Apart from the above-mentioned revisions, the Hyundai i20 remains unchanged. It continues to rival the likes of Honda Jazz, VW Polo, facelifted Maruti Baleno, Tata Altroz, and soon-to-be updated Toyota Glanza. In fact, Tata Motors is also gearing up to introduce dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) with the Altroz.
