Spy pics take by TheKoreanCarBlog also reveal that the console will display a temperature guage at the right-bottom corner of the tachometer.
We expect the soon-to-be-launched Hyundai i20 to feature an upgraded eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, like the one that is seen in the company's Venue rage of cars. Hyundai's new offering is also expected to arrive with the company's BlueLink connected car technology.
Hyundai plans to continue with the 1.2-litre petrol engine that produces 81bhp of power and 115Nm or torque. The i20's current diesel engine will be replaced with the 1.5-litre engine that is featured on the Kia Seltos, but will arrive in a different state of tune. The company could also offer the Venue's more powerful 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine mated to a either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed DCT.
The 1.5-litre diesel engine currently produces 113bhp of power and 250Nm of torque, and comes mated to either a six-speed manual transmission, and a torque-converter automatic. Hyundai could also similar transmission options for the diesel variants of the new Elite i20.
The new Elite i20 looks sharper than before, and features a larger front grille (fairly similar to the one on the recently launched Elantra facelift). The upcoming third-generation Hyundai Elite i20 is expected to be priced between Rs 7 lakh to Rs 10.5 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
Thoughts About The Digital Instrument Cluster
We don't expect anything lesser by today's industry standards. All manufacturers are moving to fully digital instrument clusters. It reduces bulk and adds to the cosmetic value of the vehicles.
The all new Hyundai Elite i20 has been spotted testing, and spy pics reveal that the car will feature a new coloured Multi-Info Display screen at the center of the console. The MID screen will be flanked by a digital speedometer and tachometer on either side.
