It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Gets a handful of new features.

The Hyundai i20 was recently updated with new features such as projector headlamps and LED DRLs.

As part of the MY2016 update, the top-end Hyundai i20 Asta (O) gets projector headlamps with cornering lights and LED DRLs, which was only available in the Euro-spec Hyundai i20 and Indian-spec Hyundai i20 Active. With the increased awareness towards vehicle safety, Hyundai have made dual airbags standard across the range. Also, a new body colour called “Phantom Black” has been introduced.

While the lower grades get a music system with an LCD display, the top-end Asta (O) comes with an Audio Video Navigation 7.0-inch touchscreen display that was introduced in 2015. Bluetooth telephony continues to be standard in Magna and variants above it
