Hyundai India is planning to launch the i20 on 28th December. The i20 will be initially launched with a 1.4 liter Kappa petrol engine. The Hyundai i20 will be priced in the Rs 5-6 lakh range. Hyundai has no plans to launch a diesel variant of the i20 as of now.

Hyundai i20 will take on Suzuki Swift Zxi and Skoda Fabia. Hyundai had started exporting i20 to Europe in November 2008. While this model will replace Getz in Europe over the medium term, the company is non-committal about its phase out schedule for India.
