Hyundai has raised the prices of its i20 premium hatchback. The Hyundai i20’s price has been increased by up to Rs 21,000.
The Hyundai i20’s prices have risen across the board. The updated price list for the i20 lineup also revealed that the iMT gearbox has been removed from the Turbo models.
The Magna and Sportz (both manual and IVT) variants have had their prices raised by Rs 11,500. Except for the DCT variant, all Asta models have been increased by Rs 16,600.
Ex-showroom prices for the Turbo variants with the 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine and the dual-clutch automatic gearbox have risen by Rs 21,500.
The Hyundai i20 Turbo variants have also seen a drop in total sales as Hyundai no longer offers them with the iMT transmission. The i20 continues to be available in three N Line trim levels: N6, N8, and N8 DCT. The Hyundai i20 N Line variants’ prices have been raised by Rs 16,500.
The N6 iMT model of the i20 N Line is now priced at Rs 10.16 lakh, while the N8 iMT is now priced at Rs 11.19 lakh. The top-of-the-line Hyundai N Line N8 DCT costs Rs 12.12 lakh (all prices mentioned are ex-showroom). The Hyundai i20 N Line is now the only version of the hatchback with an iMT transmission.
Prices for the i20 diesel variants remain unchanged, though Hyundai is expected to discontinue the engine when stricter Real Driving Emission standards take effect on April 1, 2023.
About Hyundai i20 Engine and Transmission
The petrol versions of the Hyundai i20 are available with either a naturally aspirated 1.2-litre four-cylinder engine or a turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine that powers the Turbo and N Line variants. The 1.2-liter naturally aspirated engine produces 82bhp and 115Nm of peak torque and is available with either a 6-speed manual or a CVT transmission.
The 1.0-litre engine is more powerful because it has a turbocharger, which allows it to produce 118bhp and 172Nm of peak torque. In the ‘Turbo’ variants, the engine comes with a 6-speed DCT automatic transmission, while the N Line gets the iMT transmission in addition to the DCT.
The Hyundai i20 has seen its annual price increase for 2023. However, the premium hatchback has lost a few trim levels as a result of Hyundai discontinuing the iMT transmission for the i20 Turbo models.
