Hyundai launches facelift of elite i20 at Auto Expo 2018; price starts at Rs 5.3 lac

The Hyundai i20 has been unveiled at the Auto Expo. The new Elite i20 has now got the minor facelift treatment from the outside, and inside as well. Without the camouflage, we can now get the full view of what the car will be like.

On the front, the new i20 gets all-new bumpers with a wider chin and the signature cascade grille which is similar to Hyundai’s current gen Verna and the Elantra.

The headlamps are the same, design-wise, but now get more chrome inserts with projector units now. On the sides, the alloy wheels are new and look like the design from Mercedes Benz A-Class hatchback, and look premium.

The rear side is where the facelift shows, with a heavily updated design, new tail lamps, new license plate housing on the rear door panel, and new bumpers which get the similar treatment of the i10 grande with faux mesh design.
