The highly anticipated new Hyundai Elite i20 launched in Indian market. It has been launched in the market along with the global showcase of Hyundai Ioniq electric and hybrid Sedan. The petrol variants of 2018 Hyundai i20 have been priced between Rs. 5.34 lakh to Rs. 7.90 lakh and the diesel versions now cost Rs 6.73 lakh to Rs. 9.15 lakh.
The most eye-catching change is the shift to a more advanced 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality. Hyundai is also offering its Auto-Link software that transmits key vehicle information straight to a linked mobile phone. As India is a key market for Hyundai, and expecting a 7-8 percent rise in the demand for automatics in 2018, Hyundai has invested in a new transmission tailored specifically for the country. With the smaller 1.2-litre petrol engine, the i20 gets the benefit of the lower ‘small car’ tax rate (12.5 percent) which applies to cars under four metre in length, with petrol engines under 1,200cc.
