Hyundai has begun reservations for the third-gen i20, which will be released on 5 November. The carmaker also announced the variant-wise engine choices of the new i20 ahead of its price disclosure. Although a conventional manual gearbox on the 1.2-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine will be provided by the carmaker, the turbo-petrol unit will lose out on a proper MT option.
- In four models, the third-gen i20 will be sold: Magna, Sportz, Asta and Asta (O)
- Both models, except the base-spec Magna, will be offered with a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine
- Just two gearbox variants are available: the 6-speed iMT (clutchless manual) and the 7-speed DCT. Along with these, The Place still has a full manual transmission
- To get a 7-speed DCT (dual-clutch automatic) option, the new i20 will be the only hatchback in the segment
- The only luxury hatchback that actually gets a turbo-petrol engine is the VW Polo
