Inside Cabin: The 2020 Hyundai i20 is made very premium and sportier compare to old i120 model, one that is really elegant and sensual, it comes with four-spoke steering wheel, horizontal blade lines covering high and prominent dashboard, the LED ambient lighting and the visually combined 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system make the interior look very premium. There is also a Bose premium sound system with 08 speakers including a subwoofer

Connected car services, aimed at making driving and ownership experience easier, are included in the Bluelink suite that comes with a free five-year subscription. Not all of these services are expected to be on offer in India, and also, the free subscription period is expected to be three years here.

Key highlights:

1. Alloy wheels

The 2020 Hyundai i20 will be available with bigger, 17-inch alloy wheels. However, we do not expect these alloy wheels to be offered in India because of the poor roads.

2. LEDs lights

On the outside, the third generation Hyundai i20 features LED headlights and LED taillights. New on the inside is LED ambient light technology.

3. Sportiness design language

The 2020 i20 comes with new Sensuous Sportiness design language and looks much more sportier and classier

4. 10.25-inch touch screen

The 2020 Hyundai i20 features two new 10.25-inch screens, one being a full-digital instrument cluster and the other a touchscreen infotainment with navigation. These screens are visually combined in the dashboard to minimize the distraction for the driver. The new touchscreen infotainment system offers split-screen functionality for multitasking.

5. Bose audio system

The next-gen Hyundai i20 packs a premium Bose audio system with eight speakers, including a sub-woofer, for a high-end listening experience.

6. Semi-autonomous parking

the new generation i20 is equipped with Parking Assist (PA) that allows for semi-autonomous parking. A range of sensors and software work together and make parking in tight spaces easy for the driver. We hope Hyundai offers this feature in the Indian-spec new generation i20.

7. Bluelink connected car services

Coming inbuilt with Hyundai’s Bluelink technology, the all-new i20 offers a plethora of connected car services such as remote features via the Bluelink smartphone app, cloud-based voice recognition with natural voice understanding and Hyundai Live services. Hyundai Live services include real-time traffic information (powered by TomTom),fuel stations/parking spaces along with prices, speed cameras (if permitted in the country) and weather updates. (Don’t expect these to be offered in India) Bluelink app services include vehicle location tracking, remote unlocking, searching POIs and sending results to the infotainment system, vehicle alarm notification and maintenance updates.

8. 48-volt mild hybrid system

Hyundai will offer a 48-volt mild hybrid system in the third generation i20 optionally. This electrification system reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 3-4%. Unfortunately, it may prove to be too costly for our market hence there are chances that Hyundai may not bring following features in India

9. Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control

Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control (NSCC) adjusts the vehicle speed based on the expected road conditions. It uses the navigation data of the infotainment system to anticipate curves or straights on highways and changes the speed, if required, accordingly. This is something Hyundai might offer in the Indian-spec 2020 i20.

10. eCall feature

eCall is a mandatory safety feature in EU for new models approved for manufacture after 31 March 2018. eCall is an in-vehicle system that automatically alerts emergency services in case of a road accident and will also inform the rescue workers about the crash site’s exact location. … The voice call allows vehicle occupants to communicate directly with the trained eCall operator.
