At the 2018 India auto Expo, Hyundai motors launched the new i20 Elite. The only thing it was missing out during the launch was a CVT transmission. At that time, there were some news that the Korean will soon launch a CVT transmission for this hatchback. After about three months, Hyundai has finally launched the Elite i20 CVT at a starting price of Rs 7.04 lakh ( Ex-Showroom, Delhi).
Like other models in Hyundai stable, the CVT transmission will only be available on the petrol engine. In addition to this, the Elite i20 will only get the CVT transmission on the Magna and Asta trims. They have been priced at Rs 7.04 lakh (Ex-Showroom, Delhi) for the Magna variant and Rs 8.16 lakh (Ex-Showroom, Delhi) for the Asta variant.
Coming to the aesthetics, there is no change in the CVT models. Both the Magna and Asta trims with the CVT transmission is similar to the ones with the 2018 manual transmission models. Just like the aesthetics, even the interior and the safety features do not get any changes. Front dual airbags and ABS is standard for all the trims right from the base trim.
Previously, the Hyundai i20 was powered with a 14 litre petrol engine and it got the automatic (torque converter) transmission. Now, hyundai has discontinued the 1.4 litre petrol engine and introduced the 2.2 litre petrol engine. This is done to take benefit from the tax induced on sub four meter cars with 1200cc engine. Hence the 2018 Elite i20 gets the 1.2 litre petrol engine which is mated with an automatic (CVT) transmission and it generates 83 hp of power. In comparison with the manual transmission 1.2 litre petrol engine, the CVT model is costs more than a lakh above it.
With the launch on the CVT Elite i20 from Hyundai, it competes head on with the Maruti suzuki Baleno CVT and the Honda Jazz CVT in the Indian market. The Korean manufacturer has given this hatchback with a competitive price tag which helps it to underpins its rivals.
