  1. New Hyundai i20

    Finally a detailed walkaround of the new i20:
  2. New Hyundai i20

    The i20 line-up has received an update for 2019, including a standard safety kit. The base Era petrol now gets ear parking sensors and eco-coating tech for the AC unit as standard. The next variant – Magna Executive – has been renamed the Magna+. It's available with a manual transmission only and gets Bluetooth and voice recognition for audio system, steering-mounted controls, keyless entry and fog lamps with DRLs at the front. Hyundai also discontinued the Sportz and Asta trims in favour of a Sportz+ trim that gets manual and CVT options (only for the petrol engine) and also gets a dual-tone exterior finish as an extra The Sportz+ MT gets equipment such as 15-inch gun-metal alloys, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system (with MirrorLink, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), a reverse camera, front centre arm rest, a USB charging port at the front and a tilt/telescopic adjustable steering. The Sportz+-CVT variant also gets wireless charging while the dual-tone version adds 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, adjustable rear headrests and an interior colour package. The biggest change on the top-spec Asta (O) trim is that it now gets manual and automatic gearbox options with the petrol variant. In terms of equipment, it shares all its kit with the Sportz+ Dual-Tone variant. Found this walkaround giving a detailed look at the updated i20 Magna+ inside and out: Source
