A Facebook fan page that goes by the name ‘i20 Elite’ has shared undisguised images of the 2018 Hyundai i20 facelift. These images reveal the exterior and interior updates the hatchback gets as part of the mid-life refresh.

Changes to the front include a new ‘Cascading’ grille, updated front bumper, and new fog lamp enclosures.

As anticipated, the front end gains Hyundai’s signature ‘Cascading’ grille along with a reprofiled bumper and new fog lamp enclosures. This particular unit features projector headlamps with LED DRLs indicating that is in the top-spec Asta(O) grade. At the back, there’s a new bumper with a black insert towards the lower portion housing the reflector units. The number plate has now moved up to the rear hatch. The updated taillight is also partially visible.

Inside, the button arrangement flanking the touchscreen has been rejigged. The central aircon vents positioned above the screen have been reprofiled slightly and so have the hazard light and central locking buttons. The vents now get silver finish surrounds.

According to report published last month, the Hyundai i20 will drop the 1.4 L Gamma petrol and 4-speed automatic combo in favour of a more cost-effective 1.2 L Kappa petrol plus CVT option. The rest of the engine and transmission options will be carried over unchanged.
