Fashion remodel ordinary hatchbacks into a kind of crossover emerged not so long ago. Many manufacturers are limited to simple installation skirts or plastic protection on the perimeter of the body, as well as a slight increase in ground clearance, which allows you to overcome the more difficult road sections.
What is most interesting, consumers are delighted by this idea, since converted into a compact crossover hatchbacks fly very fast in the network of authorized dealers. For the producers themselves is also a way to expand the line with minimal investment. No need to spend a lot of money, time and energy to build a new full-fledged SUV. Just taken hatchback, slightly modernized, and now in front of us is almost urban crossover.
As an approach to the production of mutually machines, many companies are beginning to try their hand at, in fact, a new segment. They can be called all-terrain hatchback, because it is the name of the fair reflects the essence of the car.
One of the most interesting innovations in this, we can say the class, became 2018-2019 Hyundai i20 Active, built as you know, on the basis of a conventional hatchback i20.
Alas, the wait psevdokrossover in Russia is not worth it. The manufacturer does not plan to deliver it to us. At least in the near future. However, interest in the car have not reduced.
We offer you a complete overview of news, where we will examine all aspects of the car. First, find the external differences in comparison with the source code, look inside, and do not forget about the hood space, since the technical characteristics of interest very many.
Exterior 2018-2019 Hyundai i20 Active
As we have said, hatchback conversion psevdokrossover occurs approximately on the same scenario. And in the case of the 2018-2019 Hyundai i20 Active everything went exactly as a new means for the automotive industry genre.
The front part has got a new bumper with something like a flattened “kenguryatnik”. Although it is rather a decorative element that allows you to make a crossover appearance. Well, an interesting solution. In conjunction with the new fog lamp shades, original optics and trim hood and trapezoidal trim grille, we get quite a SUV, albeit modest size. Of course, not without the protection of black plastic, which are dispersed throughout the perimeter of the body.
On the side it is worth noting a comfortable, well-designed doors, large windows, roof rails, which previously was not, of course. Narrowed exterior mirror housings, wheel arches with plastic trim, stylish wheels – all point to the fact that 2018-2019 Hyundai is really made efforts and endeavors, so they do not get the same the i20, but simply in plastic clothes. Such an appearance might well be present in the high-grade crossover.
Behind the car and greets us plastic cover, a small diffuser in the rear bumper, the original door of the luggage compartment. It is interesting to look ceiling side lights, and rear optics thought very elegant. Small glass boot successfully completed with an integrated spoiler in his additional stop signal.
If we talk about the dimensions, the exterior changes virtually no effect on the size of the car. As a result, important are the following figures:
- length – 4035 mm;
- width – 1710 mm;
- height – 1490 mm;
- wheelbase – 2570 mm;
- ground clearance – 190 mm.
As you can see, compared to the hatchback, it has changed only a clearance. In i20, and so he was not a little, as much as 170 millimeters. However, the increase in the additional 20 millimeters obviously superfluous will not.
Interior 2018-2019 Hyundai ah 20 Active
And here is where the manufacturer to make changes decided not to, because it is in the interior. Judging from the photo and video materials, absolutely nothing in the cabin was not affected. It just moved from hatch and left in its original form.
Is this bad? Hardly. Far too successful was the interior of the new generation of 2018-2019 Hyundai ay20, on the basis of which the variation made under the name Active.
So, at the disposal of the driver of the new psevdokrossovera is a new, stylish multifuntsionalny wheel, good thought-out instrument panel with two wells and a trip computer in the center. No less attractive turned out center console with optional multimedia system and other useful equipment.
The seats are comfortable, with both front and rear. Rear sofa without any problems is ready to place themselves on the three passengers and provide them with comfort, even on long journeys. This component ay20 developed very well, and therefore the need to change anything for the all-terrain modifications have disappeared by themselves.
Do not blame the manufacturer that they did not want to make the interior more unique novelty or originality. Yet it is simply a variation of the conventional hatchback, rather than the release of some new models.
Options i20 Active
Apparently, the equipment and the car 2018-2019 Hyundai i20 Active will get from the source code. This means that it is possible to announce a list of already known equipment available for the hatchback.
The most attractive options:

The price of the new 2018-2019 Hyundai i20 Active in Russia
Sorry, but about the price of 2018-2019 Hyundai i20 Active manufacturer has decided not to tell anything. It is possible, in the camp of the company 2018-2019 Hyundai is simply not yet decided how much they appreciate all-terrain vehicle, based at the hatch.
Interestingly, the first sales started in India. Then the machine is available from the beginning of March this year. After some time, will direct cars to Europe. When exactly this will happen – say at the moment is difficult. Indicative price tag to European consumers may be 14-15 thousand euros. But this is just speculation. Official reports on this subject have been reported.
Specifications ay 20 Active
Since the car will be sold in India, and then move to Europe, while in Russia the novelty wait hardly worth it, its technical characteristics do not cause as much interest. But they need to talk about.
Despite his affinity with crossovers, all-wheel drive car will not. It offers its customers only with front-wheel drive.
As for the power plant, that is, we can talk only about the best engines for India. It offers two engines – petrol and diesel.
It is possible, of course, that the European markets for 2018-2019 Hyundai will offer something more impressive and powerful. Although, given the love of economical compact cars, it is more likely than a fact.
Video Test Drive i20 Active
In principle, the modification of the 2018-2019 Hyundai i20 Active year has been very, very successful. Change of appearance is clearly superior to the level of attractiveness of the exterior of its source. Let inside both cars have identical furniture, nothing wrong with that absolutely no.
For all the merits of the interior and exterior, we are still dealing with a fairly rich set. It remains to know how much it will cost a car, in order to finally reach a verdict regarding 2018-2019 Hyundai ay20 asset.
I would like to add that in the engine compartment car lacks just a little bit. It would have at least one turbo engine capacity not exceeding 1.5 liters, in order to power close to the mark of 120-140 horsepower. With these parameters the car more attractive to potential buyers has increased to twice, if not more.
Yet we wish to European consumers, so 2018-2019 Hyundai has added to the gasoline and diesel engines a couple of powertrains. There is simply gorgeous, if at least one of them will get a turbocharger.
