If you have been waiting to hear the key details of Hyundai's new generation i20, well this may be the good news for you. A fresh batch of new Elite i20 spy shots has hit the web again, this time giving us an insight into the interiors of the car.

Thanks to the team at Motorbeam for the latest images, possibly taken at a Hyundai dealership in Hyderabad.

We have already seen dozens of spy shots of new Elite i20, but this time the car is seen without camouflage, revealing more details of boot space, interior and rear-end design.

The new Elite i20, which is inspired by "Fluidic Sculpture 2.0" design philosophy, has been styled at Hyundai Motor's Design Centre Europe.

Some of the expected exterior changes include hexagonal air-dam element flared head lamps and wrap-around tail lamps.

In the latest pictures, the car is seen wearing new light units at the bottom of the rear bumper, giving new Elite i20 a sporty look along with LED tail lights. Hyundai also seemed to have worked on the interior and boot space of the new generation i20.

The car is likely to get features like climate control, keyless entry, steering-mounted audio controls, reverse camera, parking sensors and automatic day/night interior mirror.

Expect the same 1.4-litre diesel and 1.2-litre Kappa2 engines of its current model to power new Elite i20, which is likely to come mated to either a five-speed or a six-speed manual transmission in India.

While the petrol engine is expected to churn out 83 bhp of power and 113 Nm of peak torque, the diesel engine might give 89 bhp of power and 219 Nm of torque. The new generation i20 is likely to be offered in four trims - Magna, Sportz, Sportz (O) and Asta trims.

The new Elite i20 will become official in India on 11 August and once it hits the market, the new hot hatchback will be squared off against the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Fiat Punto, Tata Bolt, Toyota Etios Liva and Ford Figo.

The dealers of the company have already started accepting the bookings for new Elite i20, and the rumour is that the company would price within ₹9 lakh-₹10 lakh price brackets.

Meanwhile, a new report of CarTrade says that the Hyundai has discontinued the current generation i20 in the country ahead of the arrival of the new i20 avatar. The company has also removed the old i20 from its India website.

We are not sure yet if the Elite i20 will show the door to the current model, but the reports suggest that the dealers are clearing i20 in order to stock the new Elite version.
