Time flies so quickly , we don’t even realize. We keep saying the ‘new’ i20, when in reality it has almost been a year since the launch in September last year. To celebrate the one year anniversary and the success of the second generation i20, Hyundai have decided to bring in a Celebration edition of the car.
Only 600 specimens of this car will be made.
The new Celebration Elite i20 edition will be built on mid-level Sportz trim and is likely to carry a price tag at a premium of Rs.29,990 on the current model.
Inside the cabin too, the Elite i20 is expected to get changes like new upholstery with new edition branding and sporty pedals. The new model will also be available in both petrol and diesel model and under hood, the Celebration edition will continue to pack 1.2-litre four-cylinder motor and a 1.4-litre mill.
The guys at Autocar have shown us the glimpse of the special edition. The distinguishing factor is the graphics under the mirrors which have numerical one as a pole for a fluttering checkered flag, which would denote that the car has completed one year in the market with incredible success. Since the car was launched in September last year, we should be expecting deliveries by next month. The booking might get underway prior to that. But as of now we have no clear inputs from the management at Hyundai regarding anything.
