Powering the Elite i20 Automatic is Hyundai’s 1.4-litre Dual VTVT petrol engine. This 1368cc motor is tuned to produce a power output of 100 PS at 6000 rpm while the peak torque of 132 Nm comes up at 4000 rpm. This engine now comes mated to a four speed automatic transmission as an option whereas a five speed manual transmission is standard. The Elite i20 automatic will now rival the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Volkswagen Polo, Honda Jazz, and the Ford Figo.
