The 2018 Hyundai Elite i20 has been spotted in Tamil Nadu revealing only the alloy wheels.
The 2018 Hyundai Elite i20 has been spotted for the second time testing here in India. This time in Tamil Nadu. MotorBeam reader Ankur Mittal clicked the image of the car.
The facelifted Elite i20 was heavily camouflaged from the front, rear as well as the sides and revealed only the alloy wheels which are similar to the Mercedes CLA. The facelifted Elite i20 will be bearing the same fluidic design language as the current model. The premium hatchback will get Hyundai’s signature hexagonal front grille with chrome slats. Hyundai has also tweaked the front bumper and the headlights get a new updated design.
The overall proportions of the car are expected to remain the same. The sides of the 2018 Hyundai Elite i20 tell the same story, while at the rear, the company is expected to give a new bumper and tail-lights. The registration plate will now be placed on the boot instead of the bumper. The interiors of the vehicle were covered but expect new upholstery inside while the dash layout is expected to remain the same.
Coming to the engines, the Elite i20 facelift will be offered with the same engine options as on the current model. There’s a 1.4-litre CRDi oil burner that punches out 89 HP of power and 220 Nm of torque. This engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. Then there are the 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre petrol motors that come mated to a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic transmission respectively. A 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine is expected too but there is no confirmation from Hyundai yet.
