Hyundai has introduced the Hyundai i20 Turbo Edition in the UK. The special edition i20 has been designed, engineered and built in Europe.
The Hyundai i20 Turbo Edition, as the name suggests, is powered by a 1.0-litre T-GDi turbocharged three-cylinder petrol motor producing 74 kW (100 PS) at 4,500 rpm and 171 Nm of torque at 1,500-4,000 rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The Turbo Edition model has a CO2 emissions rating of 104 g/km and a fuel consumption rating of 4.5 L/100 km (22.22 km/l). Hyundai offers the 1.0-litre T-GDi engine model with a 6-speed manual transmission also, in which the turbocharged unit produces 88 kW (120 PS) at 6,000 rpm, while the torque output remains unchanged.
The Hyundai i20 Turbo Edition is based on the Hyundai i20 SE grade. Noteworthy features include automatic lights with dusk sensor, 16-inch alloy wheels, Black/Grey interior, leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control with speed limiter, 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation and reversing camera.
The Hyundai i20 Turbo Edition is priced from £12,975 (INR 11.33 lakhs) and will reach UK showrooms this month. Exterior colour choices include Polar White, Aqua Sparkling, Sleek Silver, Stardust Grey, Phantom Black and Red Passion.
