Hyundai India has launched a new automatic variant of the Elite i20 hatchback priced at Rs 9.01 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). The automatic variant of the Hyundai Elite i20 will only be available in the Magna variant.

Under the hood, the Elite i20 Automatic packs a 1.4-litre Dual VTVT petrol engine that churns out 100 PS at 6000 rpm and 132.5Nm of torque at 4000 rpm. The engine is mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission as optional, while there’s also a 5-speed manual transmission that comes as standard.

The automatic variant of the premium hatchback comes with features such as dual airbags, a 2 din music system with Aux-in, Bluetooth, and 1GB of built-in storage.  Besides, it also gets steering mounted controls and rear AC vents.
