The ace up the new Hyundai i20’s sleeve is its newest powertrain addition, a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine mated to a seven-speed DCT. This engine makes 118 bhp of power and 17.5 kg-m of peak torque.
When all of that torque is sent to the front wheels, that ensues is a whole lot of entertainment. The transmission shifts extremely quickly and lets you keep the engine in the powerband at all times. This combination of an extremely powerful engine and a lively transmission makes for a very engaging drive. The new Hyundai i20 packs one of the most sophisticated powertrains in its segment and it definitely #BringsTheRevolution.
