Hyundai has announced a price hike effective across its entire model lineup from April 2021, ranging between INR 1,000 to INR 34,000. This is the second instance of Hyundai hiking the price of its models this year, which has come about due to rising input and material costs.

The new Hyundai i20 is certainly an expensive hatchback with the top-end Asta(O) trim priced at INR 11.34 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the turbo-petrol DCT variant. That's a huge premium over the previous-gen model and it is also considerably more expensive than any of its rivals in the premium hatchback segment. Customers have however not shied away from that price tag as Hyundai had previously revealed that 85% of the bookings have been for the higher-spec trims.
