In Europe, Hyundai has introduced the facelifted Hyundai i20 Active along with the facelifted Hyundai i20.
Unlike the Hyundai i20, the Hyundai i20 Active has not received a new front-end. On the sides, the crossover-styled Active variant no longer features the unique star-shaped fuel filler cap with gunmetal finish. At the rear, the 2018 Hyundai i20 Active has an updated bumper with new faux skid plate, redesigned tail lamps and reworked tailgate with the integrated license plate. Hyundai has introduced a two-tone colour scheme in which the roof is painted in Phantom Black colour.
The pre-facelift Hyundai i20 Active is available in Europe with 100 PS 1.4L petrol, 90 PS 1.4L CRDi diesel and 100 PS/120 PS 1.0L T-GDi petrol engines. Hyundai has announced the facelifted Hyundai i20 Active with 100 PS 1.4L and 100 PS/120 PS 1.0L T-GDI petrol engines. The 1.4L engine is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission. The 1.0L engine sends the drive to the wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission (100 PS version)/6-speed manual transmission (120 PS version) or a new optional 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The company's Idle Stop and Go (ISG) stop-start system is standard in the new model.
The 2018 Hyundai i20 Active will go on sale in Germany in June.
