One of the last of the diesel hatchbacks sold in the country has been axed as Hyundai Motor India has pulled the plug on the i20 diesel. The company has delisted the i20 diesel variants from its website while dealerships too have confirmed the development. The move though was a long coming one with low demand for diesel hatchbacks and the transition to the new BS6 Phase 2 norms set to arrive from April 1, 2023, onwards.

Apart from removing the diesel variants, the Hyundai i20 petrol versions get upgraded engines. The 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol and 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol now comply with BS6 Phase 2 and RDE norms. There are no changes on the power front on either engine. The 1.2 motor continues to develop 82 bhp and 115 Nm of peak torque, whereas the 1.0 turbo churns out 118 bhp and 172 Nm of peak torque. Transmission options include the 5-speed manual and CVT on the 1.2-litre version and a 7-speed DCT on the turbo petrol. Hyundai discontinued the 1.0 IMT on the i20 earlier this year.
