Hyundai has launched the new Elite i20 CVT in the Indian market at the introductory price of Rs 7.04 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). This CVT box was showcased at the launch of the facelifted Elite i20 in the 2018 Auto Expo. It's accessible only with the 1.2-litre petrol mill and is offered in the Magna Executive and Asta variants.

The continuously variable transmission (CVT) is combined with the 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine on the 2018 i20 that is tuned for 83bhp. The automaker guarantees an advantageous drive with the automatic variant, devoid of any gearshift jerks.
From inside, the 2018 Hyundai i20 CVT, there's another seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, rear armrest, Arkamys premium sound system and more. The i20 automatic acquires dual airbags, ABS and EBD as standard on both trims.
