Hyundai i20 – 2019 – Video
In order to meet customers’ expectations, 2019 Hyundai i20 five-door and Active now have a more modern design as well as updated safety features with Hyundai SmartSense. For the entire i20 line-up, Hyundai is also introducing a seven-speed dual clutch transmission (7DCT) for an optimal driving comfort and an Idle Stop and Go (ISG) system, which will reduce CO2 emissions. Offering a choice of three different gasoline powertrains, the New i20 meets current market demands.
The New i20 offers a choice of three gasoline powertrains. The Kappa 1.0-litre T-GDI engine, available for the entire i20 line-up, comes with a choice of two power outputs: the engine that is capable of 74 kW/100 PS is available with a five-speed manual transmission, while the high-power version of 88 kW/120 PS comes with a six-speed manual transmission. As an alternative, both powertrains can be matched with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission – a Hyundai first in the i20 range. Offered for the i20 five-door and three-door Coupe, the Kappa 1.2-litre engine is available with two different outputs, both mated to a five-speed manual transmission: 55 kW/75 PS or 62 kW/84 PS. The i20 Active is available with the Kappa 1.4-litre engine generating an output of 74 kW/100 PS. The powertrain is paired with a six-speed manual transmission.
The Idle Stop and Go (ISG) is a standard feature in all three i20 versions, which will contribute to lower fuel consumption, lower CO2 emissions and higher efficiency. The fuel savings of using the ISG will be especially apparent when driving in urban areas, as ISG automatically switches off the engine when the car comes to a halt.
By concentrating on efficient gasoline engines in the i20 range, Hyundai is responding to market demands. The 1.0 T-GDI is now equipped with a built-in particulate filter to enhance environmental performance. The whole i20 powertrain line-up is fully compliant with Euro 6d temp regulations.
