Hyundai i20 – 1,1L CRDI diesel engine, 75 horsepower, lowest CO2 emissions
Hyundai i20 gets a brand-new 1,1L 3-cylinder CRDI diesel engine with 75 horsepower and CO2 emissions of only 84 g/km – lowest emissions for any conventional powertrain available on the market at this moment!
Hyundai staged the world premiere of the all-new i20 at the Geneva Motor Show last week. The popular sub-compact hatchback, which competes against cars like VW Polo, Ford Fiesta and Kia Rio, received a mid-cycle styling makeover for the 2013 model year.
The slightly revised Hyundai i20 hatchback received an updated front and rear fascia with styling tweaks that bring the car more in line with the rest of the Hyundai car family.
The updated front fascia features new headlamps, hexagonal signature grille, lower airdam and new hood too, while the rear features revised tail-lamps and bumper.
The highlight of a brand-new Hyundai i20 is an all-new 1,1L CRDI diesel engine, which has been developed at Hyundai’s research & development centre in Germany.
The 1,1L CRDI diesel engine has an output of 75 horsepower and emits only 84 grams of CO2 per kilometer. According to Hyundai, this is the lowest CO2 figure for any conventional powertrain currently available on the market!
The other, more potent, diesel engine option in the all-new Hyundai i20 is a technically upgraded 1.4L CRDI diesel engine, which generates 90 horsepower and emits just 96 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
