CVT is available in the 2018 Hyundai i20 with only the 1.2-litre Kappa Dual VTVT petrol engine. A 5-speed manual transmission is still the standard fitment. The naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine develops 83 PS at 6,000 rpm and 11.7 kg.m of torque at 4,000 rpm. Hyundai is yet to reveal the fuel economy rating.

The 2018 Hyundai i20 range comprises five grades: Era, Magna Executive, Sportz, Asta and Asta (O). The petrol engine is available with a continuously variable transmission in only the Magna Executive and Asta grades.

On the outside, the Magna Executive grade has standard halogen headlamps, high-gloss front grille, body-coloured and electrically adjustable mirrors, body-coloured door handles and 14-inch steel wheels with full wheel covers. Fixed-type front centre armrest, 2-DIN audio system (MP3, Aux & USB), all four power windows, rear AC vents and glovebox cooling are the key interior features. Safety equipment includes dual-front airbags, ABS with EBD, speed sensing auto door lock and impact sensing auto door unlock.

The Asta grade has a slightly more appealing exterior thanks to DRLs and 15-inch gunmetal-finish alloy wheels. Its ORVMs come with electric folding and auto folding functions as well. Interior highlights include automatic climate control, sliding-type front centre armrest, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink, Arkamys sound system and USB charger.

The Asta grade is safer than the Magna Executive grade, thanks to the addition of front fog lamps, reverse parking sensors, rear camera and rear defogger with timer. It is priced at INR 8.16 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).
