Hyundai’s new i20 has hit the road in South Africa with a refreshed, stylish design in the hatchback segment, with the local pricing also being revealed.

The new i20 announces itself in three specification and trim levels and a mix of three engines and three transmissions that gives a range of options – from the entry-level Premium variants to the Executive versions, followed by the flagship, sporty N Line with its turbo-charged mill.

At entry level, the i20 Premium is equipped with either a 1.2-litre or a 1.4 litre 4-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine. The 1.2 Premium delivers power to the front wheels through a 5-speed manual gearbox, while the 1.4 Premium uses a 6-speed automatic transmission.

One step up in terms of specification level and features, the Executive variants also come with the 1.2-litre engine and 5-speed manual gearbox combination, which delivers fuel consumption as low as 5.9 litres/100 km, or the 1.4-litre engine linked to the 6-speed automatic transmission, where overall fuel consumption of 6.9 litres/100 km has been recorded.

At the top of the range is the i20 N Line with its turbocharged 1-litre petrol engine and a 7-speed Dual Clutch transmission, also driving the car through the front wheels.

Exterior

The refreshed design of the new i20 includes a new shape and pattern of the front bumper and glossy black radiator grille, which have been enhanced to create a sporty look.

At the rear, a redesigned bumper and a unique taillight design are paired with new-look 16-inch alloy wheels on the Executive and N Line derivatives. The Premium variants feature 15-inch steel wheels, cladded with carbon-black wheel covers. A dynamic light signature that emphasises its overall bold look, is provided by the front lights – with halogen lamps for the Premium and Executive, and LEDs for the N Line.
