i20 Performance Key Visual

The all-new
i20

More powertrain choices.
More efficiency.

Choose from 4 unique engine configurations: At the top of the range, a 1.0 T-GDi petrol engine is available with 100 PS or 120 PS. It can be equipped with a 48-volt mild hybrid system, either as an option with the 100 PS or as standard with the 120 PS. The mild hybrid system contributes to a 3-4% reduction of fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. A 1.2-litre MPi petrol engine is also available with 84 PS.
More powertrain choices. More efficiency.

  • Comfort start

    Comfort start

    The mild hybrid system has particular advantages in city traffic, with the MHSG supporting the combustion engine when re-starting after traffic stops. This action supports a faster and smoother engine start with supplemental torque, drawing on energy from the 48V battery. The MHSG assists the combustion engine during take-off by compensating with torque and power.
  • Acceleration

    Acceleration

    Under acceleration, the MHSG supports the combustion engine with compensatory 4 to 10 kW of power, depending on the battery system’s state of charge and the degree of accelerator input from the driver. Once the required speed is reached, the MHSG shifts to neutral mode, delivering no power. As a result CO2 emissions, as well as fuel consumption, can be reduced by up to 11 per cent.* (*NEDC 2.0)
  • Constant driving

    Constant driving

    At a constant speed, the MHSG either is at idle or acts as a generator charging the 48V battery, depending on the battery state of charge.
  • Recuperation

    Recuperation

    In active braking or overrun phases, the rotating crankshaft powers the MHSG, which then acts as a generator with a maximum recuperation output of 10 to 12 kW. The generator converts the kinetic braking energy into electricity, and feeds it back into the 48V battery. In these phases, the combustion engine remains switched on and clutch kept closed to be able to transfer the power from the wheels over the transmission and the engine to the MHSG.
  • Extended start-stop

    Extended start-stop

    When coasting at low speeds, the start-stop function already activates at 30 km/h. Under deceleration between 30 and 0 km/h, and with the clutch disengaged, the engine is switched off completely.

Coasting.

Coasting.

Available on engine configurations with iMT and MHSG, the all-new i20 automatically enters coasting mode when you release the accelerator, saving fuel.
Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT).

Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT).

The 6-speed iMT is designed to lower emissions and increase fuel efficiency by automatically engaging coasting mode whenever you release the accelerator.
6-speed manual transmission.

6-speed manual transmission.

Prefer to operate the clutch and gears yourself? Choose an engine configuration with manual transmission for a precise, smooth-shifting drive.

Energy Regeneration System (ERS).

Idle Stop & Go (ISG), Alternator Management System (AMS) and low rolling resistance tyres are complemented by our Energy Regeneration System (ERS): when the car is moving in gear but with a closed throttle, the braking effect of the engine generates kinetic energy that is converted into electricity and stored in the battery. This reduces both fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.
