Hyundai India has given its 2017 model of the Elite i20 some mild cosmetic and feature updates. There is a choice of dual-tone exteriors to pick from - red body with black roof or white body with black roof. That, and an all-new colour option called Marina Blue. The black interiors with orange inserts are available in the Asta trim with dual tone exteriors.

The 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system on the top trims now supports Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirror linking. The Elite i20 now has six airbags - front dual, side and curtain airbags. Surprisingly, Hyundai has taken away a few features with these updates as well. For instance, the top trim doesn't get push button start and the Sportz trim no longer gets a reverse camera or automatic climate control.

Mechanically unchanged, the 2017 Elite i20 is available with a choice of the same three engines - a 1.2-litre petrol that makes 82bhp and 115Nm paired to a 5-speed manual and the 1.4-litre diesel with a max output of 89bhp and 220Nm paired to a 6-speed manual. The only engine available with the 4-speed automatic transmission is the 1.4-litre petrol that has a peak output of 99bhp and 132Nm. The automatic is only available in the Magna trim which misses out on features like ABS and the touchscreen infotainment system.

The prices for the various trims of the 2017 Hyundai Elite i20 are as follows:

Era - Rs 5.36 lakh
Magna Executive - Rs 5.6 lakh
Sportz - Rs 6.47 lakh
Asta - Rs 7 lakh
