It was a week ago when Hyundai India teased the facelifted i20 and the prices are now out, ranging from Rs 6.99 lakh to Rs 11.01 lakh, ex-showroom. While the changes aren’t massive, they are enough to provide a fresher perspective for the hatchback which gets an update for the first time since its launch in November 2020.
|Era (New)||Rs 6.99 lakh|
|Magna||Rs 7.70 lakh|
|Sportz||Rs 8.33 lakh|
|Asta||Rs 9.29 lakh|
|Asta (O)||Rs 9.98 lakh|
|Sportz||Rs 9.38 lakh|
|Asta (O)||Rs 11.01 lakh|
At a glance the design has largely remained the same, but if you look closer, you’ll notice, the cascading front grille now has a mesh inspired by the 2023 Hyundai Verna. This is flanked by a revised set of LED headlights and LED DRLs, with the front bumper also getting a minor touch up. The changes continue with a new 16-inch alloy wheel design, and a tweaked rear bumper. A new Amazon Grey paint shade joins the current lineup that includes, Atlas White, Titan Gray, Typhoon Silver, Starry Night, Fiery Red and dual-tone options of Atlas White + Black Roof and Fiery Red + Black Roof
Inside, there’s a new dual-tone black and grey theme for the dashboard and seat upholstery. The existing set of features that include a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a Bose sound system, connected car tech, a wireless phone charger, automatic climate control have been retained with additional kit expected. That being said, there are USB Type-C charging ports as an additional feature. Standard safety kit now includes six airbags, ESC, Hill Assist Control (HAC), ABS with EBD, and three-point seatbelts with reminders for all seats.
Under the hood is where the big changes lie. While the 83PS 1.2-litre petrol engine with the five-speed manual and CVT gearbox option has been retained, the 120PS 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine with the seven-speed DCT gearbox has been axed which is an unfortunate miss for the enthusiasts. That being said, this engine and gearbox combo is still on offer for the i20 N Line and should make its way to the facelifted model as well.
The 2023 Hyundai i20 facelift is offered in the Era, Magna, Sportz, Asta, and Asta (O) variants. It continues to take on the Tata Altroz, Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Toyota Glanza.
