Cross over to more excitement with the newest offering from Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), the Hyundai i20 Cross Sport. The new vehicle expands the Hyundai lineup, giving the customers a car choice that stands out from the usual hatchback driving experience.
During the inauguration of the Hyundai Logistics Center (HLC) in Laguna recently, HARI gave members of the motoring and lifestyle media a preview of the i20 Cross Sport that the exclusive Hyundai distributor plans to introduce to the market within the year. Designed for the more active and adventurous customers who want to achieve more with their vehicles, the i20 boasts of a premium ride experience packed with elegant style, solid performance, and sophisticated convenience features, making it ready to challenge current car segments with its value-based specifications.
The i20 Cross Sport will come in two engine types: 1.4-liter Kappa Petrol with Dual MPI with VIS (Variable Intake System), and a 1.4-liter U2 CRDi Diesel, with 5-speed manual transmission and 6-speed manual transmission respectively, giving drivers the freedom and control in their driving experience with the i20 Cross Sport. Nonetheless, other drivers who prefer a minimalist and simplistic drive over the stick shift can opt for the automatic transmission in the 1.4-liter Kappa Petrol engine.
Standing tall among the features of the i20 Cross Sport is its height above the ground. With a 170-millimeter ground clearance, it can perform better than most hatchbacks and sedans in plying over rough, difficult surfaces. Side mouldings and claddings, and the skid plate complement the car well, ultimately completing both form and function. All of these add a tough, SUV look on the i20 Cross Sport, while also giving an extra layer of protection to the car, enabling you to take on rough roads and even floods.
The new i20 Cross Sport is also equipped with roof rails, which also provide both looks and use to the car. The silver finish improves the rugged and sporty appeal, and its form is sturdy enough to carry sports gear or other equipment catering to outdoor activities.
Achieve a secure ride even during long drives at higher speeds with the rear tailgate spoiler of the i20 Cross Sport, as it provides excellent aerodynamics while giving your car’s rear side a compelling view. The tailgate spoiler comes with a stop lamp, also an essential for road safety.
Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 gives i20 Cross Sport the looks that can attract any road onlooker. Headlining its captivating exterior design are projector headlamps and an aggressive front grille that give the i20 a unique and pleasing image, aside from its solid performance credentials.
The headlamps also come with cornering headlamps to provide better illumination while driving; all this is achieved while still infusing a sense of beauty in the car.
The front air dam with two-tone bumper of the i20 Cross Sport, a new hexagonal grille accented by chrome surrounds, and the stylish R16 alloy wheels round up the car’s bold image, easily making a strong presence on the road.
The i20 Cross Sport comes with a Multi-function Steering Wheel, which enables you to control your phone, make a call, or even play music via Bluetooth. The sophisticated steering wheel also has an audio system that lets you control volume and choose tracks to play.
In any case that you feel uncomfortable with the steering wheel, it is equipped with tilt and telescopic adjustment to ensure the perfect driving position for you. The i20 Cross Sport is also equipped with one touch signal system to warn lane change intention to the rear traffic – all by just a flick of a finger.
Adding more flexibility and space, the i20 Cross Sport has convenient seat configurations to accommodate more luggage or travel gear. The rear seat can be folded into 60:40 splits to create more storage space, like for a longer cargo, or bigger equipment.
So if it comes down to a difficult decision—whether to go sedan or hatchback, or maybe shift to something bigger like a Compact SUV, there’s no more need to worry. The i20 Cross Sport gives the best of all worlds all rolled into one active and exciting ride.
