Hyundai reportedly plans to launch the 2020 i20 in India in September.

In a conversation with carandbike recently, Tarun Garg, Director - Sales, Marketing and Service, Hyundai (India), talked about the 2020 Hyundai i20’s launch plan for India. Below is what he said:

“At Hyundai I think we have very very good systems in place and there are no delays. I am not going into when, but there are no delays, let me put it on record.”

According to a report released in March, Hyundai plans to launch the 2020 i20 in India in September. The company has upgraded the previous generation i20 to BS6 and will continue selling it until then.

Featuring a noticeably bold exterior, to an extent even offbeat, and an upmarket interior, the 2020 Hyundai i20 aims to raise the bar again in its segment in India. The all-new model features full LED headlamps, LED tail lamps, luxury car-style dashboard and steering wheel, (10.25-inch) virtual instrument cluster, 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, an array of connected car services and much more.
