We have already fed you in about the upcoming 2014 Hyundai i20, christened the Elite i20 by the Korean carmaker. The slight alteration in the name also suggests that the new i20, which seems bigger, more feature-laden and differently styled, will sell alongside the current-gen model. There most definitely is space for both the car models to sell concurrently, as exhibited earlier by the i10 / Grand i10 duo. Hyundai, in the meantime have revealed the official sketches of the next generation model of the popular hatchabck, listing out some important design details. India, being one of the most important markets for the big hatch, will witness the global launch of the car on 11th August in New Delhi.

While there is still some time before Hyundai officially reveals the interior, avid Motoroids reader and fan Shiv Mahapatra has shared these exclusive images of the i20’s cabin with us. It’s a double bonanza of sorts, as the pictures represent the cabin both in daylight, and while being lit up in the night.

The images you see here are those of the top of the line Asta variant, which had arrived in one of the Cuttack dealerships for a demo. The bookings for the car are being taken for a token amount of Rs 5000, and the fact that Shiv booked the car after having a quick look is indeed testimony to the new model’s plush interior.

Apparently, the cabin looks much richer and more premium in the flesh than in the pictures. The backlights on the centre console and instrument cluster apparently look fantastic. On the outside, there is a white stripe above the headlamp, which in all probability a DRL – and should look fabulous. Shiv also managed to take an image of the car’s tail-lamp in the dark, revealing its fabulously detailed homogenously lit LED illumination.

The quality of the materials used in the cabin, as reported, is fabulous. The seats are reportedly very comfortable and spacious. Shiv, being a 5 feet 10 incher didn’t find any difficulty in sitting comfortably on the backseat.

In addition to the information provided by Shiv, a look at these images of the Elite i20 also reveals the following important details about the new car

  • Push button start / keyless entry
  • Climate Control
  • Central screen with audio display (doesn’t seem like a touch sensitive panel)
  • Two-tone brown beige interior
  • Horizontally laid out central A/C vents unlike the vertical units of the current gen i20
  • New three spoke steering wheel (as reported by Shiv) with mounted controls

    Like Jayanand, I am too curious to know what other features did it add to existing coz I have one. I cant find one other than ergonomics or fitting dash components from verna. But I have no doubt Hyndai has worked on ride and handling to make it par with competition. Also petrol 1.2 is underpowered in current gen i20. I feel they have worked on ECU and gear ratio remapping so that it is powered enough till 120 kph. Had they add 1.2 turbo petrol powerlant for i20, would have been most saught after premimum hatch.

    This car takes the Interior quality and gadgets included in this segment to next level. So completely loved what i saw here. Would like to add that i suspect the car has a Color Screen display in its instrument cluster. Also individual Door ajar notification is present on the Asta version of iGen i20 (i own it). Its a Lovely car with Auto Headlights, Rain sensing wipers system, reversing cam, monochromatic RVM, Excellent Audio system oh boy i can go on n on about its features. Am very curious to see, feature wise, what it adds on over the current model. Hyundai has added many common sense features. One i recently found out was, after the car has be turned off completely, the power window operates for 30 sec without turning on the car. This has happened to me many times before that in hurry i forgot to roll up window only to realize after i have switched off the car.
