Thanks to the good folks at Rushlane , we’ve now got the best pictures of the upcoming Elite i20 crossover , or should we say the i20 Active.The upcoming car has been spotted in full production guise , at what seems to be a TVC-shoot in Bangalore. This is also confirmation of an imminent launch.
The Elite i20 crossover will officially be called the i20 active , and obviously come with many cosmetic changes from the Elite i20.But like most crossovers in its segment, The Active too fails to live up to the design standards of its parent hatchback.
The front seems to be completely redesigned , now sporting a new bumper ,smaller grilles and a faux-skid plate. Projector headlamps have been provided , and the foglamps are now round in shape. LED DRL’s will also be provided.
The sides follow a similar design pattern as the front, and along with the obvious increment in ground clearance , new alloy wheels and some body cladding has been provided.Roof rails , being a staple feature of cars in the segment, can be seen to be added.
At the rear, the LED wrap around tail lamps (seen on the Elite) have been retained . However large amount of thick cladding is provided on the bumper. A faux ‘brushed Aluminum’ skid plate and round reflectors complete the changes.
Mechanically , the same engines seen on the Elite i20 are expected to be carried on, but at a slightly higher state of tune. Prices will also go up proportionally.
