The exterior of the Hyundai i20 now resembles the cars in their global line-up. The new body is sharp, sleek and sporty with ample helpings of aggression and style further enhanced by chrome elements that run along the sides of the car and on the tailgate as well. Notable highlights include LED headlamps, projector fog lamps, 16-inch alloy wheels, Z-shaped tail-lamps and subtle i20 branding on key elements of the car. There are two kinds of front grilles on offer, the regular model gets a parametric jewel pattern while the sporty turbo variant gets a hexagonal affair with “turbo” badging.

The i20’s large glass area gives the cabin an airy, roomy feel that complements its premium interiors. The dashboard design is simple and has horizontal patterns that makes the car feel wider than it really is. Furthermore, with leatherette upholstery and larger dimensions in terms of cabin space as compared to its predecessor, this i20 has an interior that is among the best in its segment. When we sat in the car, there was ample space in the front and the rear seats were also not lacking in space. Hyundai claim that the rear seating space is one of the best in the segment. As for the quality of plastics and fit-and-finish, it is at par with Hyundai’s reputation for build quality.

Would gape at fast cars. Still does but now has a chance to drive some of them. Hates driving in traffic but makes up for with a spot of off-roading or the occasional track outing. Insta: @motoknight
