Is this what you'd call a bolt out of the blue? Hardly a day has passed since we showed you images of the Hyundai i20 facelift from a dealer yard and here comes Hyundai with the prices and details of the i20 facelift, dubbed i-Gen Hyundai i20. Hyundai sent out an email containing details and studio shots of the car.

A Hyundai spokesman told Indian Autos Blog there was no specific reason for not conducting a press conference or a launch ceremony. He said vehicles have been dispatched to dealers across the country.

The i-Gen i20 is served up in 12 variants with prices of the petrol variants ranging from Rs 473,400 to Rs 665,894, and the diesel variants ranging from Rs 596,334 to Rs 744,013. The automatic variant is priced at Rs 767,405.

The petrol variant is fitted with the same 1.2 Kappa petrol engine but with the Dual VTVT mechanism (used first on the i10 facelift) which delivers 84 ps of peak power. The 1.4 U2 CRDi diesel is paired to a 6-speed manual transmission that delivers 90PS power and 224Nm of torque. Hyundai has brought back the 6-speed manual to the i20, which is great news for long distance customers.

The 1.4 Gamma automatic petrol producing 100 PS power and 139Nm of torque is paired to a 4-speed automatic transmission.

As we pointed out yesterday, plenty of feature additions are available on the new i20 such as rear Parking Camera with display on the cabin mirror, Electro Chromic Mirror that offers anti-glare vision during night time driving, Clean Air-Cluster ionizer for fresh air in the cabin, Auto Headlight Control Function, 6 Airbags, Rear Disc Brakes and Rain Sensing Wipers. A clutch lock system that prevents accidental starts, speed-sensing door locks and rear parking sensors are also available.
