Hyundai India has quietly introduced new functions and the awaited automatic transmission on the Elite i20 to keep the sales momentum going. The automaker has added the new 1.4-litre fuel motor to the engine variety that comes combined to a 4-speed automatic transmission, while the range-topping Asta (O) trim on the manual fuel and diesel variations now gets six air bags.
The Elite i20 Asta (O) gas is priced at Rs. 7,75,828 ($11,662) while the Asta (O) diesel is priced at Rs.8,99,992 ($13,528). The production of the 1.4-litre automated alternative commenced simply recently and the cars are expected to reach dealers by September 12. The autobox will be readily available on the mid-level Magna trim, while rates need to be revealed within today.
The brand-new 1.4-litre Dual VTVT, four-cylinder fuel engine is noted on Hyundai India’s website, and a main launch can be anticipated in coming days. The motor can producing 98bhp of power at 6000rpm and 132Nm of torque at 4000rpm. The 4-speed torque convertor doing duty here is the similar unit that is seen on the Verna 4S and Grand i10. The Elite i20 automatic does not get any particular function additions, but misses out on a number of functions rather like ABS, reverse parking sensors, front fog lamps, auto headlamps, touchscreen infotainment system, wise key, projector lights, DRLs and more.
Speaking about the added air bags, Hyundai has added side and drape air bags to the Elite i20, which by the way were readily available on the first generation variations of the model in addition to rear disc brakes. But the automaker terminated both the features along with the sunroof with the present generation model went on sale. However, the safety feature is a huge welcome and makes the premium hatchback, the second model of its type get the very same after the Ford Figo automatic.
