Directly from our friends at IndianAutosBlog, today we can sahre with you the first completely undisguised pictures of the previously called Hyundai Elite i20 crossover, finally called i20 Active, or the Cross version of European i20.
The dressed-up Elite i20 also gets a new brown exterior colour, and an increased ground clearance that’s marginally higher than the hatchback’s 170 mm. A person privy to the product’s development earlier told IndianAutosBlog that the suspension would be upgraded, and test mules were spotted with projector headlamp, full plastic body armour, and a camouflaged dashboard suggesting an upgrade in the infotainment system.
The Hyundai i20 Active will launch in India next month, and the car will also be exported. The engine configurations are unlikely to change with the 1.2L petrol Kappa engine which develops 83 PS @ 6,000 rpm and 115 Nm torque @ 4000 rpm, and the 1.4L diesel engine which delivers 90 PS power at 4,000 rpm and 220 Nm torque at 1,500 – 2,750 rpm, soldiering on. Could this model arrive to Europe while Hyundai develop a completely new B-segment?
