Hyundai is gearing up to launch the next-generation i20 hatchback in the Indian market. Ahead of its launch, the company officials have confirmed that the new-gen i20 will feature the latest connected technology.
Speaking to NDTV auto Tarun Garg, Director of Sales and Marketing, Hyundai Motor India, confirmed that the upcoming i20 will feature the company's latest BlueLink connected technology.
He also stated that the company will consider featuring connected technology across its India line-up at a later date. The current trend and the buyers in the Indian market also want the connected technology for increased convenience. As a result, both the Hyundai Creta and the Verna models launched recently feature the company's latest connected technology as well.
Hyundai has four vehicles from its current Indian line-up that feature BlueLink technology — the Venue, the Verna, the Creta, and the Elantra. The upcoming Tucson facelift will feature ‘BlueLink' connected technology as well. As a result, the next-gen i20 will be the sixth connected Hyundai vehicle when launched in India.
The recently launched Verna facelift and the new-gen Creta features 45 and 50 ‘connected' commands, respectively. In comparison, the Hyundai Venue and the Elantra will feature only 33 and 34 commands, respectively. We expect the upcoming i20 to get the same connected car features as the Venue.
The South Korean auto manufacturer has unveiled the next-gen i20 globally ahead of its India launch. It also released a walkaround video explaining the new features and design changes of the upcoming hatchback — here are more details.
The upcoming i20 will be its third iteration and will feature a host of changes, with design revisions and added features inside and out. The new front facia of the upcoming hatchback will feature a new cascading grille, and restyled headlamps which are much sleeker as compared to the older ones. At the rear, the new tail lamps are connected by a light bar running across the length of the boot-lid. It also features a new funky looking dual-tone alloy wheel design.
Interiors of the 2020 Hyundai i20 have undergone a complete design revision with a host of additional features. This includes a new dashboard design with horizontal lines running across the length, connecting all four air-con vents. It also includes two 10.25-inch displays for the instrument cluster, and the touch-screen infotainment system, respectively. The touch-screen infotainment system supports Android Auto and Apple Carplay.
Hyundai is expected to offer the new-gen i20 with a host of new powertrain options. This includes the 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine with a 48V mild-hybrid unit paired with a six-speed (iMT) intelligent Manual Transmission. The company claims that this configuration helps reduce fuel consumption by a huge margin. It will also be offered with other engine options including the current 1.2-litre petrol and the 1.5-litre diesel unit borrowed from the Kia Seltos, I'll bet in a detuned state.
Thoughts About The Next-Gen Hyundai i20 Featuring Connected Technology
Connected technology is the current trend among Indian four-wheeler buyers. Hyundai models have always been feature-rich among its segment rivals. With the next-gen i20, the company aims to offer a feature-packed premium hatchback with a host of powertrain options that will cater to a wider audience in the Indian market.
