Just a few weeks ago, we wrote about a new 2021 Hyundai i10 and now coming bigger 2021 Hyundai i20. Korean producer decides to provide more interior information due to delays in Geneva.
A first look at the cabin pictures shows more digital screens and fewer physical controls. Both displays are 10.25 inches in size. One is for the dashboard while the other is for the multimedia system. The digital dashboard has several displays, with different colors: blue for Normal, green for Eco, and orange for Sport mode. It is possible to simulate the classic analog clock speedometer and speedometer.
The second screen is located above the vents, and is tablet-shaped. The multimedia system provides Android Auto and Apple Car Play connectivity. Optional Hyundai offer wireless mobile phone charger and 8-speaker Bose audio system.
The competition in the B segment is high. For this reason, designers have undergone aesthetic changes. Among other things, the new hatchback is 5 mm longer, 30 mm wider, while wheelbase is extended by 10 mm.
2021 Hyundai i20 Engine Options
The drive units will be 2 gasoline engines. The weaker version will be 84 horses, which gives the 1.2 L 4 cylinder engine. The basic version comes with a 5-speed manual transmission. The second option will be turbo charged 1.0 L 3 cylinder GDi engine with 100 or 120 horses. Here you have a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic or 6-speed manual transmission. For this engine, a hybrid combination with a 48-volt battery is also possible.
