South Korean automaker Hyundai is all set to introduce the facelifted second-gen Elite i20 in the Indian market. Hyundai has already commenced testing of the facelifted hatchback.
Fly Wheel has spotted the facelifted Elite i20 hatchback. The car is heavily camouflaged and covered with canvas. The spy images reveal the rear fascia of the updated hatchback.
The 2018 Hyundai Elite i20 gets new LED tail lights. Another significant change is the revamped tailgate. The registration plate is repositioned from the lower bumper to the tailgate.
The facelifted Elite i20 is likely to feature a front fascia derived from the i30 and the Accent or Verna. The car will be equipped with new cascading front grille, redesigned headlamps and a new bumper.
The second-gen Elite i20 is expected to draw power from the existing 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre petrol engines and a 1.4-litre diesel engine. No updates to the interior are expected as the company recently upgraded the infotainment system of the Elite i20.
But the interior could feature revised trim and upholstery and upmarket equipment. The facelifted Elite i20 is likely to hit the roads after the 2018 Auto Expo in February.
Hyundai is updating its successful hatchback to stay in the competition of the hot hatches in the Indian market. With the launch of the new Swift around the corner, Hyundai is readying the updated Elite i20.
