In February 2020, Hyundai officially unveiled the third-gen i20 online, followed by a sneak peek of her interior. Although we did a story shortly after its announcement ‘what to expect,’ we are now looking closely at its interior as the carmaker recently published several interior pictures and information. These images belong to the Euro-spec model, but Hyundai could offer an all-black interior for the India-bound model , especially for the sportier turbo-petrol variant.
The pictures show the neon green highlights that were used in the official drawings. The door panels and AC vents display these, while the gear knob, chairs, and steering cover receive fluorescent green stitching. The Indian-spec turbo model may attain red highlights such as the Verna and Nios / Aura.
In addition to the highlights, the latest i20 now features two screens: a 10.25-inch optical instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen. However, the India-spec model is expected to miss out on both of these screens and come with a cluster of digital instruments (similar to the Verna facelift) and an 8-inch infotainment system.
Nevertheless, the latest dashboard interface on India-spec platform should be identical. It contains horizontal lines across making it feel spaciouser than ever. In the new layout, the AC vents are neatly integrated with the climate controls placed under them.
The third-gen i20 also includes ambient lighting in the storage areas of the footwells and doors. Other than that, wireless storage, an 8-speaker Bose sound system with a subwoofer, and BlueLink connected car software from Hyundai will also come in. The latest i20 would have a boot capacity of 351 litres, 66 liters greater than the outgoing edition, according to Hyundai.
It will be powered by a range of BS6 engines in India: a 1.2 liter petrol, a 1.0 liter turbo-petrol, and a 1.5 liter diesel. The turbo-petrol engine alternative would also incorporate 48V mild-hybrid engineering internationally which is not supposed to be provided here. A 5-speed manual will match the 1.2-liter petrol unit, while the turbo-petrol and diesel engines will be matched to a 6-speed manual, each with its own automatic transmission option.
