Features That Were Removed from New Hyundai Elite i20

Hyundai is one of the premium automakers of India and i20 is the flagship car from this brand. With each iteration that Hyundai gives for i20, they have managed to make the new one better than the old one – at least in design terms.

That is true with the latest Elite i20 as well. It has the most phenomenal looks for every i20. The design of this i20 might probably be the best hatchback design in the entire country. Although they have dramatically improved design, they have removed a lot of features from the older version.

If the features mentioned below are what you wanted in your i20, you can always buy used Hyundai i20 online India.

Removed Features

  1. Elite i20’s Sportz (O) model doesn’t get an airbag for the passenger side, but the Asta variant has all the safety measures. As this feature is one of the most basic ones, Hyundai could have offered it as standard on the car, which is sold under the tag of premium hatchbacks in India. Other hatchbacks in this segment offer airbags as standard feature.
  2. The Magna model of Elite i20 doesn’t have integrated turn indicators as well on ORVMs.
  3. The Magna and Era Variants do not have ABS.
  4. Only Asta and Sportz (O) have alloy wheels available.
  5. The Magna and Era variants don’t have clutch lock either and even Sportz variant does not have clutch lock. They don’t have impact sensing auto unlock for door as well.
  6. The Sportz variant doesn’t have the 60:40 rear seat split any more. It does have a bench seat though. The 60:40 rear seat split feature is available on Asta though. Adjustable rear seat headrest is also unavailable.
  7. The daytime running lights are also missing, but the new i20 does have a head lamp escort.
  8. The timer and rear defogger is missing from the Magna trim as well, but for the older i20 it was just missing from the Era variant.
  9. The adjustable front seat height is only available in the Sportz (O) variant and not in the new i20 Sportz variant.
  10. The Magna variant doesn’t have automatic climate control option. It doesn’t have the practical luggage lamp as well.

There are a ton of features added as well, but we are not happy about the features they removed. Many i20 owners won’t upgrade to the new one, but some still would.
