The Korean automaker Hyundai will soon revise the feature list for its popular selling model, the Elite i20. As seen in leaked images, the automaker might also introduce the Asta dual-tone variant sometime soon. The automaker will however not introduce any changes to the top-spec Asta (O) variant and the base Era variant will be offered at an attractive starting price.

Based on what can be seen in pictures, the Magna variant is likely to be renamed as Magna Executive. Along with the revised naming, the variant will also loose out on features like headlamp escort function, keyless entry and rear parcel tray. Moving one step ahead, the Sportz variant loses out on features like reverse parking sensors and camera. The second to top Asta variant will now get a 7-inch infotainment system which supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirror Link. The system also supports rear camera, however the fresh addition will mean replacing a certain set of features like automatic headlamps, diamond cut alloy wheels and chrome outside door handles.

The petrol engine comes mated to a five-speed manual, while the diesel version gets six-speed manual transmission.
