The i20 Active boasts a higher ground clearance, a more rugged bodywork and retuned 1.2-litre petrol and the 1.4-litre diesel engines.
Adding to the 'off-road' stance are satin-finished roof rails, chrome-coated door handles and a fuel-filler cap.
The rear end mimics the theme seen on the fascia, with round reflector in the bumpers. A matte black cladding underscores the entire car to give it the rugged stance.
The front fascia of the i20 Active receives a larger bumper, round fog lamps with a
cornering lamp function, a skid plate and an inverted hexagonal grille. The headlight unit also gets LED DRLs.
The cabin carries forward the design from the Elite i20, but reflects the sportier side of the i20 Active with body coloured inserts in the dashboard fascia and the upholstery.
The i20 Active also gets sportier pedals. The smart pedals overrides the accelerator pedal and applies brake only.
Hyundai has also introduced new colour options with the i20 Active viz. brown, black and grey.
The i20 Active, a crossover-styled vehicle based on the Elite i20, has been launched
in India at prices (ex showroom Delhi) starting at Rs 6.38 lakh for the petrol variants and Rs 7.63 lakh for the diesel options.
