Changes to the exterior of the 2018 Hyundai Elite i20 facelift come in the form of a new front bumper with the brand’s signature ‘cascading grille’ design and redesigned fog lamp cluster. On either side, the only change to the model is the new alloy wheels while the posterior features a host of updates including a new bumper with a large plastic insert and reflectors on either side, new LED tail lights and the number plate recess which has been repositioned from the bumper to the boot-lid.

It is said that the new Hyundai elite i20 facelift will continue to be offered with the same 1.2-litre petrol engine and 1.4-litre diesel engine. Reports suggest that Hyundai could replace the 1.4-litre diesel engine mated to the four speed automatic unit with a 1.2-litre engine mated to a CVT. Expect no other changes to the engine and transmission options. Hyundai India will reveal more details when the 2018 Elite i20 facelift is launched next week at the Auto Expo 2018.
