The new Hyundai i20 is slated to be unveiled soon. Here is a video of the Hyundai i20 DCT spotted on test. So what will be offered on the Hyundai i20 DCT? What engine will it have? When will the car launch?
The new Hyundai i20 DCT is expected to launch by November first week. The new Hyundai i20 units have been started to reach dealerships slowly and the car has been creating waves in the market. The official bookings of the car have not open and the only thing that holds this back is that Hyundai has not announced the variants and specifications of the premium hatch.
Turbo Petrol DCT
As seen in the video below, the Hyundai i20 is seen with a BS6 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine. This engine will be paired with a 7-speed DCT gearbox. Also, we are expecting it to tune it a bit sporty as the DCT gearbox will be quick with shifts.
Being a sporty variant it still does not get flat-bottom steering which is kind of a standard on other Hyundai cars with sporty versions. The badging on this car suggests that is it available on the Asta variant.
The Asta variant in which the New Hyundai i20 DCT is seen is the topmost variant in the lineup. We also expect other segment-first features to make it on this variant and above. The front of the Hyundai i20 looks similar to the Hyundai family design. The new grille design merges with the headlights and gives this family character to the car. The Headlamps are a projector and there are fog lamps below it. The bumper lip is black coloured for the sporty element.
At the front, there is a prominent Turbo badging as seen on other Hyundai cars with this same Turbo engine setup. The usage of chrome on the car is also generous. The window line is chrome and it rakes sharply towards the roof at the end. Even though it is a sporty version of the car we can see chrome on the door handles and the dual-tone alloys also have touches of sliver.
The other engine that will be available on the new Hyundai i20 will be the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine. The car competes with Tata Altroz, Honda Jazz and Toyota Glanza. Most of these cars have a naturally aspirated petrol engine. We are expecting the Tata Altroz to get a DCT option soon.
