Ahead of its launch, Tata Motors delved into the upcoming i20 through a video about the spooky Halloween festival.
The next Hyundai i20 will be the safest iteration to arrive in our market
Hyundai Motor India is set to launch the next-generation premium Hyundai i20 hatchback in the country early next month. Hyundai’s all-new i20 premium sedan will take on Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Tata Altroz, Honda Jazz and the Volkswagen Polo. Ahead of its launch, Tata Motors explored the upcoming i20 through a video on social media. The message read, “You can do the trick 20 times, but it’s the fun you get.”

The message was very clear in the tweet, calling the i20 a trick and the Altroz a treat. We are waiting to see if Hyundai has something to say. The i20 will fight against the Altroz and promise to be one of the most feature-rich premium sedans in the segment. The next Hyundai i20 will be the safest iteration to arrive in our market with increased equipment and better impact resistance. The South Korean automaker is already accepting reservations for the premium car in the symbolic amount of ₹ 21,000. Interested buyers can reserve the car through the brand’s official online reservation platform or any other authorized dealer across the country.
The premium hatchback space is very crucial for automakers like Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai as the segment has continued to show growth and volumes. This is precisely why, Maruti Suzuki Baleno dominated the space followed by the Hyundai i20. Tata’s latest addition to the segment is the Altroz, which has helped the automaker serve a good number of customers.
The premium Tata Altroz sedan was introduced in India earlier in January alongside the updated Tiago, Tigor and Nexon. It is one of the safest cars from Indian automakers to achieve a five-star safety rating in the NCAP Global Crash Test. It is the second car from Tata’s team to achieve perfect five-star safety ratings after the Nexon subcompact SUV.

The all new Hyundai i20 is a very important product for the automaker in India. It will be interesting to see how Hyundai responds to Tata Motors’ dig in its premium offering. We believe that competitive rivalry is essential unless it is offensive. Happy Halloween, everyone!
