The front now sports a large trapezoidal grille embedded in the bumper, while the headlamps are bigger than the outgoing model. New 8-spoke alloys look stylish, while the C-pillar has been blacked-out to lend the roof-line a floating appearance. Vertically stashed tail-lights have been replaced with smarter looking horizontal lamps at the rear and make the car look muscular. It comes with large sweptback headlights and the redesigned bumper features angular shaped fog lamps. The side profile looks appealing with a sharp shoulder line and also gets new diamond cut alloy wheels as well as ORVM integrated turn indicators.

The rear on the other hand is a complete departure from the outgoing model and features a completely new design. The boot-lid now gets a more bulbous appearance and houses the wraparound LED tail lights that look splendid. Hyundai has played well with the looks by restraining the curves and emphasising the on the lines of the new i20.

The new Hyundai Elite i20 retains the 82bhp 1.2-litre petrol and 89bhp 1.4-litre diesel motors from the outgoing car. Both petrol and diesel versions are available in four trims with an additional options pack on offer for the Sportz trim. Hyundai has discontinued the 1.4-litre petrol automatic variant from the Elite i20’s lineup.
