Hyundai’s all new i-Gen i20 has been officially launched in Goa.
Goa Hyundai’s owner Mr. Prashant Joshi, handed over the keys to the first customer, Dr. Uday Nagarsekar from Vasco at their showroom in Verna.
A Segment first features:

The new Gen i20 is now available in 12 variants. The car is available in 3 engine options: 1.2 Kappa VTVT, 1.4 petrol and 1.4 CRDi diesel. The 1.2 Kappa now gets VTVT technology which helps increase power to delivers 84 ps and is available with a 5 speed manual.
Some good news is that the 1.4 diesel engine is now mated to a 6-speed manual transmission that delivers 90PS power and 224Nm of torque. This is some good news as the 5 speed gear box was discontinued on the pre-facelift variant. We can guess Hyundai has carefully taken care of customer demand.The 1.4 Gamma automatic petrol produces 100 PS power and 139Nm of torque is mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission.
The mileage of the 1.2 Kappa with VTVT petrol is 18.5 kmpl, the diesel variant (1.4 CRDi) gives 21.9 kmpl while the 1.4-litre petrol with automatic transmission gives 15 kmpl.
