Hyundai i20, i20 Active get standard dual airbags
Following in the footsteps of its rivals on offering safety features across all trims, Hyundai has added dual front airbags as standard on the i20 and the i20 Active. The carmaker has also rejigged the i20’s variant line-up for the year 2016.
The 2016 i20 comes in five trim levels. It continues to be offered with a choice of a 1.4-litre diesel and a 1.2-litre petrol engine option. The diesel version comes with a six-speed manual gearbox while the petrol model gets a five-speed unit. ABS, however, is still not on offer on the lower Era and Magna trims.
The i20 Sportz (O) trim has been discontinued. The top-spec 2016 i20 Asta (O) now sports projector headlamps with cornering function and LED daytime running lamps, as well as 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. It also gets a 7.0-inch Audio Video Navigation system as standard. The Hyundai i20 competes with the likes of the Honda Jazz and the recently launched Maruti Baleno. The 2016 model year i20 will hit showrooms soon.
