Prices of the 2018 Hyundai i20 automatic have been revealed. Available in Magna and Asta grades, the Hyundai i20 CVT range starts INR 7.04 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi) onwards. Direct rivals of the new variant include Maruti Baleno CVT, Honda Jazz CVT, and Ford Figo 1.5 AT.
The CVT gearbox mates with the 1.2 L Kappa petrol engine good for 83 PS and 11.7 kgm. The use of a 1.2 L engine will help the i20 automatic comply with small car restrictions. The petrol automatic variant of the pre-facelift model came with 1.4 L engine paired with a 4-speed torque converter automatic. As it exceeded the 1,200 cc petrol engine cap for small cars, Hyundai was unable to price it competitively and was thus, unable to find many takers. It was launched in September 2016 solely in Magna grade priced at INR 9.02 lakhs (ex-showroom).
As per the distribution of the features seen in the case of manual variants, the Hyundai i20 CVT will miss out on side and curtain airbags, automatic headlamps, smart key, headlamps with projector units and LED DRLs, diamond cut alloy wheels, and electric folding ORVMs. It will get features like the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system and bumper mounted LED DRLs, however. Hyundai is yet to announce the official variant wise features list for the i20 automatic, though.
