Hyundai has launched new generation, i20, christened Elite i20 in India at a starting price of Rs 4.89 lakh for the base petrol model while the high end Asta petrol variant is available for Rs 6.47 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The global unveiling took place in the capital of India, New Delhi. Hyundai has launched new Elite i20 in both diesel and petrol guise in four trim levels each including- Era, Magna, Sportz, and Asta. While the old version has been phased out, we believe that deliveries of new Elite i20 should commence immediately. Boasting increased dimensions, Elite i20 is bigger than its predecessor. Wheelbase has been increased by 45mm that means cabin will proffer ample legroom for passengers, even the back row offer aplenty head room and leg room. Ground clearance too has been increased by 5mm at 170mm. Boot space stands at 285 litres which mean enough space for luggage storage. Hyundai has also worked on the NVH levels of the hatchback that has been improved substantially now.
