Actually its not bad for the 120, its bad for that car costing 3 times more
Some sort of decency should be maintained while copying elements from elsewhere.

Some more pics and details:

The i20 in these images is the top-end Asta trim powered by a petrol engine (it could be the 1.2- or 1.4-liter motor). On the outside, the top-end trim will get 195/55 R16 alloy wheels with a diamond finish as seen in these images. However, LED daytime running lights are not seen in the new generation model.

Inside, the instrument cluster gets a new multi-information display which also doubles up as an interface for the driver to adjust vehicle settings such as auto door lock.

Sitting in between the front seats is a center armrest, underneath which space is available for storage of small items. One of the images also confirms the presence of a rear AC vent, and this will be a proper AC vent, and not merely a blower, our reader reports.

I suppose that the third scroll switch on the steering wheel is for toggling the MID settings. Also, 16 incher wheels sounds really nice!

What happened to brakes? Hyundai is famous for providing discs all around in their cars. The wheel shown in one of the above posted pictures looks like a rear wheel having drums.

1.4 Petrol seem to be missing here. Also no mention about automatic.

I'm waiting for information on the kind of autobox in the new i20. If it's going to have a six speed box just as the new russian verna, I will book one tomorrow itself. If a four speed box, I will have to reconsider .

The 1.2 Kappa petrol always came with the normal setup of discs at the front and drums at the rear. Only the ABS equipped variants of the 1.4 CRDi diesel and the 1.4 Gamma petrol (Auto) came with discs at the rear too. I think this would hold true for the new generation car as well.

The car in the picture is a 1.2 VTVT as can be seen from the site carrying those images. So no surprises on this one.

The real surprise is the missing LED DRLs. I hope Hyundai include these very soon, just like they did with the i-gen i20 (which initially came without them, but sported them after a couple of months). Inverted L shaped LED DRLs above the fog lamps (like on the new European i10) would be ideal.

I think we'll get neither a 1.4 petrol nor an automatic gearbox on the Elite i20, at least in the near future.

What? No automatic variant? That's a huge disappointment. Hyundai has always provided automatic versions of all their cars except the Eon.

I could be wrong, but that just doesn't look like a DRL to me. It's way too flat (narrow). I think it's only a metallic insert to enhance the looks (or less likely, provide some assistance in preventing the scattering of the headlamp beam).

P.S.: The headlamps do have some strange detailing, even making them appear like double-barrel units from some angles. But I think it's only a single barrel unit.

If true, the Elite i20's single barrel headlamps, missing LED DRLs and absence of a rear fog lamp are a step backward on the illumination front when compared to the facelifted i-gen i20. Hyundai must include at least the DRLs and rear fog lamp soon, as its very easy to do so.

I suppose they will be providing discs all around for the 1.4 D Asta (or even Sportz) like the outgoing i20 model.

I only wish they were like the ones on those EcoSports! Those DRLs have uniform width, even if they're a bit narrow. On the i20, the width isn't uniform at all, and it's quite flat at the bottom. This is what makes me believe they're just metal inserts.

Kudos to that BHPian (ecosport rules)! His modifications are fabulous and look classy!

It is more logical to have it on the right side. The key hole usually resides on the right and we are more used to starting our cars with our right hand. Ain't that right ???

I don't think the entire top portion of the dashboard is beige. If you look closely, the part that might cause a reflection which is close to the windscreen is black.

Well, you cant put any buttons or a screen on the passenger side dash, can you?

Most of the cars in India which feature a Start/Stop button, have them on the left side. For example the i10 Grand, Verna, City, Fiesta, Ecosport etc. I think the new Swift will have it on the right side of the steering wheel.

After famous fluidic theme on the exterior Hyundai is following beige fall model for interior design it seems. That dash board top looks pathetic! and overall this car has no character.
