Car buyers have picked up the Elite i20 mainly due to its styling. The aggressive look with the sleek front grille and the hexagonal lower grille are unique. The pulled back headlamps sleek and thicker towards the side. They extend upto the fenders. The large fog lamps are glamorous. From the side too the Hyundai Elite i20 2017 looks premium, specially with the blacked out door pillars. The alloy wheels are smart and contribute to the overall styling.

Hyundai Elite i20 2017 Interiors

The cabin looks sophisticated

It is not just the exteriors but also the interiors that make the Hyundai Elite i20 2017 special. The 2017 Hyundai Elite i20 has black and beige interiors but the high point is the look and feel of the plastics. The interiors feel plush due the top notch fit and finish. This is one area where Hyundai is making excellent progress. The excitement that the exterior design develops is continued on the inside. The three-spoke steering wheel comes wrapped in rich leather on the higher variants. It adds to the comfort factor.

The instrument cluster has twin dials with multi information display. The graphics used in this information display is good, however there is no instantaneous mileage, average fuel efficiency or even distance to empty. This is quite shocking actually and one of the chances in the Elite i20’s armour. The centre console looks amazing with the new touchscreen AVN system. It even has maps and even gets a reverse parking camera built in. Steering mounted audio controls and climate control are available on higher variants. Hyundai is now offering ABS and dual airbags across all variants, even though it is optional. The 2017 Hyundai Elite i20 has become an even better value for money package.

Now, let’s see how much space does it have to offer.  It is quite surprising that the new Hyundai Elite i20 2017 beats many sedans in this department. It has good space in the front row. The seats are wide and there is sufficient room even for tall people. The second row also does not disappoint and is one the most spacious hatchbacks you will find. The Hyundai Elite i20 offers good enough space at the rear to keep passengers comfortable.

There are rear AC vents too (only one in this segment to have that feature) and two six footers can sit back to back. The back seat recline could have been a bit more better though. the car has a big enough boot as well. Where the Hyundai Elite i20 2017 excels is the practicality it offers. The rear seats have a 60:40 fold. The door pockets can hold a one litre bottle. There is enough space below the centre console to keep your knick knacks too.

Hyundai Elite i20 engine

The Hyundai Elite i20 2017 comes with a 1.2-litre petrol engine that churns about 80bhp of power and 115Nm of maximum torque. It is not a very refined engine. This is the highest selling engine in the portfolio. The power of this engine is decent but it needs some amount of gear shifting especially when driving in city. To extract good enough performance, one needs to work hard. This engine has strong performance at higher engine rpm, while in the mid range it is just fine. The petrol is available with a five-speed manual transmission.

The second engine is the 1.4-litre U2 engine that produces 90bhp of power. This oil burner is extremely powerful and this makes it a great option to consider. It is easily one of the best diesel engines around. One of the strong points of this engine is the low NVH, which is probably the best in its class of diesel engines. The performance is good and there is ample of torque once the engine crosses the 2000rpm mark. This comes mated to a  six-speed manual transmission.
