New-Gen Hyundai Elite i20 rendering

Our in-house rendering expert visualizes the new gen Hyundai Elite i20 with Elantra facelift’s face

Hyundai Motor Company recently revealed a comprehensive facelift for the Hyundai Elantra sedan. The facelift for the highly popular sedan by Hyundai gives the car a thorough makeover. Thanks to the several styling updates, it now looks far more radical than the pre-facelift version. We’ve visualized the new gen Hyundai Elite i20 using the refreshed Elantra’s face.

As seen in the rendering, the new-gen Hyundai Elite i20 gets similar revisions to its front-end. The car gets a similar set of really sleek headlamps that make the front-fascia look much bolder than before. The new headlamps are far more angular than before and sport striking LED DRLs.

The biggest highlight is the new version of Hyundai’s cascading grille. The hexagonal grille is far more angular than before and plays an important role in making the front-end look sharper. The updated bumper also features bolder foglamp housings. Also, suitable modifications have been made to the bonnet and the front fenders to accommodate the design changes.

The radical nose job is visualized on the recently updated Hyundai Elite i20, which was launched at the Auto Expo 2018. Currently, prices of the Hyundai Elite i20 start at Rs 5.94 lakh and extend till Rs 10.45 lakh.

The car is available in two engine variants – 1.2-litre petrol and 1.4-litre diesel. Transmission options for the petrol variant include a 5-speed manual and a CVT. The diesel engine is available with a 6-speed manual transmission only. The Hyundai Elite i20 has been the most premium sedan from the Indian subsidiary of South Korean auto giant.

Its biggest rivals are Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Honda Jazz. We feel that a facelift similar to the one visualized above can give the current-generation i20 a new lease of life and help it become a stronger competitor to the Japanese hatchbacks. What do you think?
