Hyundai i20 2020 interior
The all-new India-spec Hyundai i20 has reached the dealers across India before its launch and spy shots have already surfaced across the Internet.
With the spy shots, we can clearly see the interior and exterior design of the new Hyundai i20. The interior design looks similar to the international model that was revealed a few months back. From the spy shot we can see that the central AC vents are nicely integrated onto the dashboard. The highlight of the cabin is the large 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system which will also be the largest in the segment when launch. In terms of the instrument cluster, the new India bound i20 will get a digital unit, but not the configurable LCD unit that is offered on the international model. Rather its the same unit has is offered on the 2020 Hyundai Verna. Top-spec model will also get sunroof just like the newly launched Honda Jazz BS6. This makes i20 the second car with sunroof in the premium hatchback segment.
We can also see from the pictures that the interior will get dual-tone treatment with leatherette seats giving i20 the premium feel. Other types of equipment on offer are the wireless smartphone charging pad, a multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, Bose premium sound system, auto climate control, centre armrest both for front and rear seats, and an air purifier. BlueLink connected car feature may also be offered which will make it another premium add-on.
