On sale with a discount of Rs 50,000, the Hyundai Elite i20 ends up being an even stronger rival to the best-selling Maruti Suzuki Baleno
The Hyundai Elite i20, which got a facelift in February this year, is among the most well-rounded hatchbacks on sale in the country. It has a powerful engine, a well-built cabin, good interior space, sorted dynamics, and even benefits from the company’s decent sales and service network.
To gain from the surge in new car sales during the festive period, the company is selling the Hyundai Elite i20 with some attractive discounts. All the variants of the Hyundai Elite i20 get a straight cash discount worth Rs 20,000.
Other than this, you can have another discount of Rs 30,000 in case you sell off your old car to Hyundai. This means you can become entitled to total benefits worth Rs 50,000. The exchange bonus on your old car are in addition to the value of the old model.
On sale in a price bracket of Rs 5.41 lakh to Rs 9.21 lakh (ex-showroom). With a price cut of Rs 50,000, the price of the entry-level model becomes just Rs 4.91 lakh, which is lower to even the price of the entry-level Maruti Baleno (Rs 5.37 lakh) and Maruti Swift (Rs 4.99 lakh).
At this price point, the Hyundai Elite i20 comes across as a great product. The facelifted version looks sufficient modern and updated engines. The petrol version is powered by a 1.2-litre engine that produces 83 PS of maximum power and 115Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. There’s also an optional CVT.
The diesel variant is powered by a 1.4-litre U2 CRDi turbocharged engine that comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The diesel engine produces a maximum power of 90 PS and a peak torque of 220 Nm. We feel that this is a good time for all future buyers of the Hyundai Elite i20 to make the purchase and benefit from the lower effective price.
