One of the most awaited premium hatchbacks was the all-new 2020 Hyundai i20 and with all the segment-first features and new styling, it instantly gained attention in the Indian market. Yes, the pricing might be on a higher side for some but nonetheless, in this modification article, we bring you the all-new 2020 Hyundai i20 where its interiors are modified.
Before we go any further and share details on the modified interiors of the 2020 Hyundai i20, make sure you are a member of our exclusive 91Wheels Telegram Group where we share the latest information about the Indian Automotive Industry.
This i20 is finished in Titan Grey colour scheme and is the Sportz variant with 1.0L turbo petrol engine. On the exteriors, it gets skirting at the front, rear and on the side profile while it continues with an alloy wheel design wheel covers which enhance the sportiness of the hatchback.
Do notice that the grille on the turbo petrol and the diesel version is a honeycomb style pattern while with the 1.2-litre naturally aspirated model, it gets a parametric jewel pattern. The turbo badging can be seen at the front of the car highlighting the variant to the user.
Sharing details on the modified interiors of this 2020 Hyundai i20 then the stock version comes with an all-black theme. Now, it gives a sporty look but the Indian market is biased towards the dual-tone beige and black colour scheme. It gives the cabin a premium look and the interiors speak of the fit and finish of the material used inside.
Starting with the door panels then the upper portion gets beige colour scheme while the lower part gets finished in black leather with contrast beige colour stitching. The power window panel gets a woody work of brown and black but to us, it looks a little bit of an extra.
The dashboard gets covered in wooden part and surrounds the AC vents, touchscreen and more. Like we said above, it looks a tad bit extra in our opinion. Moving onto the lower part of the dashboard and other areas, beige colour is seen which gives it a more sophisticated look.
At the seats, armrest, centre console, glove box and pillars receive leather soft-feel coating in beige colour. Yes, this isn't leather but a coat which resembles the beige colour. The lady in the video highlights how the interiors look just like OEM style and we couldn't agree more.
The seats get perforated treatment which not only enhances the looks but are also comfortable during the long journeys. The new i20 is in fact one of the better looking and feature-loaded premium hatchback in its segment with multiple engine options.
Coming to this Sportz variant then being a mid-variant, it does get few features like multi-function steering wheel, tyre pressure monitoring system, electrically adjustable and retractable ORVMs, turn indicators on the ORVMs, rear defogger, LED taillights, digital instrument cluster, touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with 6 speakers.
Under the hood, this turbo petrol gets a 998 cc, three cylinders Inline DOHC engine which generates 118 bhp at 6000 RPM with a peak torque of 172 Nm at 1500 RPM. This engine is compliant to the latest BS6 emission norms and gets mated to a 6-speed iMT and an optional 7-speed DCT for the higher variants. The ARAI certified fuel economy of the 1.0L turbo petrol with 6-speed iMT sticks to 20.25 km/l. It gets 195/55 R16 wheel size.
