Prices of the Hyundai Elite i20 automatic 2018 have finally been announced in India. The CVT-loaded option is being offered in the Magna Executive and Asta trims only. Prices of the automatic variants start from Rs. 7.04 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Hyundai had launched the facelifted Elite i20 earlier this year. The car was offered only in the manual variants and thus customers were demanding the automaker to introduce an automatic transmission option as well. Hyundai has finally responded to market requirements with the launch of the new Elite i20 automatic.
It is worth noting that the CVT (continuously variable transmission) option is available only with the petrol engine. This power plant is a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder unit that is capable of developing 83 PS and 115 Nm of peak torque.
No cosmetic or feature related changes have been made to the automatic variants. Hence, safety features like dual airbags and ABS with EBD are standard on all variants of the Elite i20 automatic. The top end Asta trim also gets fog lamps, rear parking sensors and camera, and 15-inch diamond-cut alloys. Infotainment duties are handled by a 7.0-inch unit that comes with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink.
