Prices mentioned below are applicable across the country and deliveries of the new i20 will start as soon as the customers cut the cheque. The 2020 Hyundai i20 will be available in petrol and diesel engine options along with multiple gearbox choices to please the premium hatchback buyers.

As mentioned below, the baseline 1.2L petrol is available across all trims while the same 1.2L motor with an IVT / CVT gearbox is only sold in the Sportz and Asta trim. The 1.0L turbo petrol with iMT is sold only in the Sportz and Asta trim while the 7-speed DCT of the 1.0L turbo-petrol comes only in the top Asta & Asta (O) trims. The diesel engine option with the 1.5L motor is sold in the Magna, Sportz and Asta (O) trims only. Also note, there will be an optional dual tone paint scheme if you wish.

The most exciting motor on the all-new 2020 Hyundai i20 is the 1.0L, Kappa Turbo GDi 3-cylinder block which produces 120 PS of power @ 6000 RPM and 17.5 kgm of torque @ 1500 – 400- RPM matched to either a 7-speed DCT or a 6-speed iMT gearbox. This engine claims to deliver a mileage of 20.25 kmpl. The iMT gearbox comes with creep function for ease of use in traffic and also increases the clutch life as the clutch is optimally operated by the car itself.

The 1.2L baseline Kappa petrol motor is a 4-cylinder block producing 83 PS of power in manual transmission options @ 6000 RPM and 88 PS of power @ 6000 RPM with the IVT / CVT transmission.
