The Hyundai i20 Active is essentially a beefed up version of the Elite i20 premium hatchback. The i20 Active does come with a fair bit of cosmetic changes compared to the hatchback, to help differentiate between the two models.
Exterior changes to the i20 Active include a higher ground clearance. The Hyundai i20 Active Cross hatchback comes with 190mm of ground clearance; 20mm higher than the Elite i20. Other styling changes to the cross-hatch include the addition of new bumpers at both the front and rear, body cladding all around the car, new set of wheels and roof rails.
The front profile of the i20 Active features a slightly tweaked set of projector headlamps with integrated DRLs, new bumper with fog lamps and a silver skid plate. The rear profile also comes with a skid plate, along with integrated circular reflectors.
The additional styling features added to the i20 Active give it a rather muscular look. The black-cladding on the sides, along with the roof rails and the 16-inch alloy wheels further accentuate the look of the cross-hatchback.
Inside, the Hyundai i20 Active retains the same cabin as seen on the Elite i20 hatchback. However, it does receive small changes as well. This includes dual-tone upholstery with vibrant colour options (Tangerine Orange/ Black & Aqua Blue/Black). The other changes also include a partly-coloured gear knob and aluminium-coated pedals.
The Hyundai i20 Active continues to be powered by the same engine options as on the Elite i20 hatchback. This includes a 1.2-litre petrol and 1.4-litre diesel engine options. The petrol engine produces 83bhp and 115Nm of torque, mated to a five-speed manual gearboc. The diesel unit churns out 90bhp and 200Nm of torque and is mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
In terms of performance, the Hyundai i20 Active remains similar to its hatchback sibling. The car offers decent performance in daily city traffic conditions. The delivery of power itself is linear with a good, especially in the low and mid-revv range. The steering and clutch is light and offers ease of driving. However, the steering doesn`t weigh up at higher speed, while also feeling a bit unresponsive.
Suspension and braking are fairly good. However, the braking could do with a bit more bite. The suspension is also set up a bit firm, although it does absorb small road undulations with ease.
The Hyundai i20 Active comes with a 40-litre fuel tank capacity. The petrol engine claims to return an ARAI-certified mileage of 17.2km/l while the diesel fares slightly better, with a fuel efficiency of 22.2km/l.
The Hyundai i20 Active features mostly the same equipment seen on the i20 Elite hatchback. Some of the standard features on the car include projector headlamps with LED DRLs, black cladding on the side and the wheel arches, front and rear skid plates, waistline moulding, 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, height adjustable front seat, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, smartphone connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, push-button start/stop, fully-automatic air conditioning and tilt & telescopic steering among a host of others.
In terms of safety features, the Hyundai i20 Active comes equipped with ABS and EBD, multiple airbags, reverse parking camera/sensors, impact sensing auto door unlock, ISOFIX and immobiliser to name a few.
The Hyundai i20 Active is definitely one of the best looking cross hatchback in the Indian market. It offers nearly the same capability as that of a SUV, yet remains compact enough to pass-off as a hatchback as well. It drives well, offers decent performance and comes packed with features. However, it remains to be seen if Hyundai bring in any more updates to the model or not in the future.
The Hyundai Elite i20 is a better overall package. However, if you are looking to take the car that extra mile off-road then the i20 Active is the car for you.
The Hyundai i20 Active comes with a bit more cosmetic changes such as skid plates, high ground clearance and body cladding; making it more capable of off-roading than the Elite i20.
The Hyundai i20 Active comes with a ground clearance of 190mm. This is 20mm more than the Elite i20 hatchback.
The Hyundai i20 Active rivals the likes of the Toyota Etios Cross.
The waiting period for the Hyundai i20 Active varies by a few days, depending on the city and the variants chosen by the customers.
