Except for the addition of a minor feature and a new colour option, the i20 Active remains pretty much the same.
Hyundai has replaced the Earth Brown colour with Stardust paint option.
The refreshed i20 Active is powered by the same 1.2-litre petrol and 1.4-litre diesel engines.
It now gets a wireless phone charger as well.
The i20 Active is priced between Rs 7.74 lakh and Rs 9.93 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Hyundai is expected to introduce the next-gen Elite i20 and i20 Active in India in early 2020. Meanwhile, Hyundai has silently refreshed the i20 Active with a minor feature and colour addition to bring it at par with the Elite i20.
The cross-hatchback is available in three variants - S, SX, and SX dual tone. In terms of changes, it now gets a wireless charging feature along with a new colour option. Hyundai has discontinued the Earth Brown colour and now offers the i20 Active in four single-tone colours and two dual-tone options. The single-tone colours are Stardust, Typhoon Silver, Polar White, and Fiery Red whereas the dual-tone options are Marina Blue (with white roof) and Polar White (with black roof).
As it is a minor update, the 2019 Hyundai i20 Active is still powered by the same 1.2-litre petrol and 1.4-litre diesel engines. The power and torque figures stand at 83PS/114Nm and 90PS/220Nm respectively. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual for the petrol unit whereas the diesel engine is coupled with a 6-speed gearbox.
As far as safety features are concerned, Hyundai still offers dual airbags, rear parking sensors, ABS with EBD, speed alert and front seatbelt reminder as standard across all variants. The hatchback continues to pack features like a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, steering-mounted audio and Bluetooth controls, rear AC vents, and more.
The refreshed i20 Active is priced between Rs 7.74 lakh and Rs 9.93 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), which is the same as before. The i20 Active takes on the likes of the Ford Freestyle and the Honda WR-V in India.
