Hyundai To Drop Select Variants From 2022 i20 Range

Hyundai is gearing up to change some variants of the 2022 i20 ahead of the launch of the Tata Altroz DCT and update some grades’ equipment lists.

The Korean automaker will discontinue the Asta 1.2-litre petrol CVT and 1.0-litre turbo DCT and instead will offer the Asta trim in 1.2-litre petrol MT and 1.0-litre turbo iMT versions.

Alternatively, Hyundai will introduce the Asta (O) 1.2-liter petrol CVT and Sportz 1.0-liter turbo DCT variants for the 2022 model year i20. Sportz variant of the i20 now comes with a couple of extra features

That is not all. Starting with the Sportz variant, automatic climate control and cruise control will be standard. All Asta grades will get a sunroof, in addition to the existing features, while the Asta(O) trim will get additional voice commands for the BlueLink system.

However, while gaining a sunroof, the Asta models will feature a smaller 8.0-inch touchscreen in place of the 10.25-inch screen and will not come with connected car features.

Hyundai will not make any mechanical changes to the 2022 i20. The revisions mentioned above are designed to allow the premium hatchback to compete with its rivals, including the refreshed 2022 Maruti Baleno and Tata Altroz.
