As for styling, the i20 Active, a crossover based on Hyundai's popular model Elite i20, will flaunt a new front fascia with projector headlamps, daytime running lights LED and fog lights.
At the back, the model will feature a new bumper like the front with circular reflectors, roof spoiler, plastic claddings and new i20 Active badge. Other features will include plastic body cladding, skid plates, roof spoiler, new alloy wheels and roof rails.

Power is likely to come from the same engine of small Elite i20 in the form of 1.2-litre petrol and 1.4-litre diesel. The petrol engine of Elite i20 has the capacity to churn out 83PS power and a peak torque of 114Nm and the diesel motor generates 90PS power and a peak torque of 220Nm. The transmission will be taken care by 5-speed manual transmission in the petrol model and a 6-speed manual gearbox in the diesel engine variant.
