The 2015 Hyundai i20 continues its test runs in and around the city of Chennai. The 2015 Hyundai i20 is the next major launch from the South Korean carmaker in the Indian market.
The 2015 Hyundai i20 might be launched sometime in between the months of September and October this year. Industry whispers suggest that the Indian market will be one of the first markets for the all-new Hyundai i20. It has been codenamed as the “IB” within Hyundai circles.
The 2015 Hyundai i20 will carry significant changes on its exterior as compared to the outgoing model. The front and the rear portions will be completely redone to lend the car an unrecognisable look. In addition, the new i20 will possess fresh designs for the headlamps as well as the tail-lamps. The engine grille and the rear tailgate will be newer ones, too. Hyundai’s designers have ensured that the new i20 stays under the length limit of 4 meters, in order to avail excise benefits.
Interiors of the 2015 Hyundai i20 will receive a facelift. It will possess a three-spoke steering wheel and a new dashboard design. The central console will now be painted in black, instead of silver as in the outgoing model. The list of changes includes the addition of a conventional shift pattern for the 5-speed gearbox.
The feature list will include :
- Alloy Wheels
- Climate Control
- Keyless entry with starter button
- Steering mounted audio controls
- Bluetooth connectivity
- Reverse camera and Parking sensors
- Automatic Day / Night interior mirror
Mechanically, things are expected to be carried over from the current Hyundai i20. Petrol options include a 1.2 Liter powerplant as well as a 1.4 Liter powerplant. While the 1.2 Liter engine comes with a 5-Speed manual gearbox, the 1.4 Liter engine is equipped to a 4-Speed automatic gearbox. O the diesel front, there is the sole option of a 1.4 Liter engine mated to a 6-Speed manual transmission.
We expect the feature-rich, premium 2015 Hyundai i20 to cost in the region of INR 5-8 lakhs. Stay with us for more updates.
