Details on 2020 Hyundai i20 variants

Buyers will certainly be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a variant of the new i20. There are three engine options on the table – a 1.2-litre, naturally-aspirated petrol, a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel. 

While a manual gearbox will be available with both the 1.2 petrol and 1.5 diesel, the 1.0 turbo will only get an intelligent manual transmission (iMT) option. Both petrol engines will be available with an automatic gearbox as well, the 1.2 petrol will have a CVT (IVT in Hyundai-speak), while the 1.0 turbo will have a 7-speed DCT. For those keen to know, the 2020 Hyundai i20 diesel will not get an automatic gearbox option at launch.

The new Hyundai i20 variant line-up starts with the base Magna trim, which will only be offered with the 1.2 petrol and 1.5 diesel engines, and with a manual gearbox only. Choices expand with the next step in the range, which is the Hyundai i20 Sportz. The Sportz will be available with all three engine options, as well as a choice of manual, CVT and iMT options.
