Scoop! New Hyundai i20 spied alongside old i20 Active

The old i20 Active looks slightly taller than the new i20 hatchback.

The third generation Hyundai i20 has been spotted testing once again. This time, the car was seen cruising past an old i20 Active, which gives us a chance to do a visual comparison the two cars.

The i20 Active clearly looks slightly taller than the new hatchback, which isn't surprising as the former has raised suspension and is fitted with roof rails. On the other hand, the new i20 sits lower to the ground. This particular test car is equipped with black 5-spoke alloy wheels. The i20 Active is no longer on sale in India.

Last month, a test mule of the new i20 was spotted without any camouflage. The images revealed the car's new front and rear fascias as well as its crisp lines.

The new i20 could get the same engine options as the Venue sub-4 meter crossover. It is likely to get a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine paired with a 5-speed manual transmission and a 1.0-litre, turbo petrol unit which could be offered with a 6-speed manual and 7-speed DCT. Additionally, the car will also get a 1.5-litre diesel engine option. This engine could be offered with a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearbox.

The third generation i20 could be launched around October 2020.
