A report from Gaadi.com claims to reveal the technical specifications of the new 2015 Hyundai Elite i20. Here are the reported dimensions of the new hatchback.
The width of the new i20 will increase by 24 mm, in a bid to offer more shoulder room for rear passengers. For reference, the current i20 measures 1,710 mm in width. Also increasing comfort levels will be the wheelbase of the car, which is reported to increase by 45 mm from the current model’s 2,525 mm. However, the overall length of the Elite i20 will be 10 mm shorter than the outgoing model. Where the current model measures 3,995 mm in length, the Elite i20 will measure only 3,985 mm.
The height, at 1,505 mm, will continue unchanged. However, the ground clearance of the car would be 169 mm, which is 4 mm more than the current model. The boot volume will see no changes.
On the top-end trim of the car, Hyundai would offer 16-inch alloy wheels with tyre specifications of 195/55 R16. And speaking of variants, the five model lineup (Era, Magna, Sportz Asta and an option pack) would continue to be offered.
The engine options, as mentioned before, will carry on unchanged. However, the 1.4-liter petrol would get a manual transmission instead of the 4-speed automatic which is currently seen. The new i20 launches in India on August 11.
