Sources have told Indian Autos Blog that Hyundai India could launch the new i20 prior to its European debut, preferably in the July-September period. Last year, Hyundai India launched the Grand i10 (a longer version of the 2014 European i10) even before the car’s European debut, and a similar launch strategy might be used for the new i20.

    New i20 desperately needs a powerful petrol engine and a bigger ac compressor…….. Because current 1.2 L feels severly underpowered…….. Please hyundai give it a turbocharger.

    They need to give it a fuel efficient & powerful 1.2l engine. The current one feels under-powered and inefficient in i20 but works wonders in less bulky Gi10 .
