The Hyundai i20 has received a facelift in an attempt to revive its appeal. The 2023 Hyundai i20 facelift comes with a subtly updated design, new features, and additional safety equipment.

With all these updates, the premium hatchback aims to re-energise its competition against rivals such as Maruti Suzuki Baleno and Tata Altroz.

Priced between 6.99 lakh and 11.16 lakh (ex-showroom), the Hyundai i20 facelift is based on the third-generation model of the hatchback. While Hyundai has added a nip and tuck here and there to the car to call it a facelift, it is to see how the updated model competes with its rivals.
