Top 10 Performance Hatchbacks in India

9Hyundai Elite i20

Here is a symbol of uncompromised confidence on the road. This is one of the ambitious designs from Hyundai. Feel the power at just one fleeting look. A mono-frame with the finest hexagonal grille and the key styling constituent of Elite i20 echoes a unique masculine look.

Elite i20, with the brand new ‘Fluidic Sculpture 2.0’ plan, brings to all the excitement
and stylishness you’d be expecting from a modish car. Sporty fog lamps harmonize the
headlamps with trendy and contemporary design and affords maximum access in foggy
driving conditions.

The 3-spoke steering wheel gets incorporated acoustic and Bluetooth controls. It gets a driver seat which is height adjustable. Along with this, there is 2D in-audio system with 1 GB internal memory, climate control system, cooled glovebox, cruise control, overturn parking assist, gear shift pointers and rear view mirrors which are electro chromatic. The boot capacity is 285 litres is the 2nd best in the segment.

The idiosyncratic black colour side moulding conveys sporty looks and prevents side cuts or dents to the body. There is a roof antenna that optimizes the signal frequency for improved acoustic surrounding. The rear wipers provide lofty wiping effectiveness with best exposure of sweep area.

The Elite i20 acquires the same petrol and diesel engines from the preceding car. The petrol is a 4-cylinder 1.2L Kappa engine turning out 83bhp and 113Nm of torque assisted to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The diesel alternative is power-driven by the 1.4-L CRDI mill stirring up 89bhp and 219Nm of torque coupled to a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Just sporty looks are not enough to make a sporty car. The Elite stands at No.9 due to its relatively low performance compared to the latter in series. Keep reading to see who’s next on the list of the top 10 performance hatchbacks in India.
