The third-gen Hyundai i20 has garnered over 20,0oo bookings since order books opened on October 28. In the Diwali festive period, over 4,000 units of the new i20 were delivered to customers. Bookings for the 2020 i20 can be made online or at dealerships for a Rs 21,000 fee.

Most i20 customers have shown a preference for the top-spec variants with the Sportz, Asta and Asta(O) variants receiving over 85 per cent of all bookings. Prices for the i20 premium hatchback start from Rs 6.80 lakh for the base petrol variant and go up to Rs 10.60 for the top-end diesel-manual. Prices for the turbo-iMT variant start from Rs 8.80 lakh with the turbo-DCT priced from Rs 10.67 lakh. Prices for the diesel Hyundai i20 start from Rs 8.20 lakh. These prices are ex-showroom India and applicable up to December 31, 2020.

The 2020 Hyundai i20 is powered by a set of familiar engines, already seen on cars like the Venue and facelifted Verna. At the base of the range is the 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated Kappa four-cylinder petrol which makes 83PS when paired with a five-speed manual and 88PS when paired with the CVT. Torque output is 114 Nm. The 1.0-litre three-cylinder T-GDi makes an appearance here too, in its highest 120PS and 172 Nm form. This pairs with either a seven-speed DCT or a six-speed iMT. There is no manual option but Hyundai claims a 0 to 100 kmph time of 9.9s with the turbo-iMT. The diesel engine option is the 1.5-litre four-cylinder U2 CRDi diesel. Seen here in its non-VGT 100PS and 240 Nm, this motor pairs only with a six-speed manual.

The turbo-petrol i20 has a mileage of 20.25 kmpl. The 1.2-litre petrol with the manual returns 20.35 kmpl with the manual and 19.65 kmpl with the CVT. The diesel manual has a fuel-efficiency figure of 25.2 kmpl. Helping here is the co-efficient of drag of 0.33.
