    Hyundai i20, i20 Active and Verna to get touchscreen

    Hyundai will introduce the touchscreen infotainment system on the i20 and i20 Active by end of the month; Verna to receive it around Diwali.

    We had previously reported that Hyundai will be introducing a touchscreen infotainment system in the i20 hatchback. Now we've received information that the company will be introducing the system on the i20 Active and the Verna sedan as well.

    The carmaker removed some equipment from the i20 in April, like the 12V power outlet from the top-spec Asta trim and the leather-wrapped steering and gear knob from mid-spec variants. It's likely that the feature deletions were carried out to make way for this new touchscreen system, without having to raise prices too much.

    Given that the recently launched Jazz hatchback from rival Honda gets a touchscreen on the top trim, Hyundai's move could well be an attempt at better positioning the i20 against it. The i20 and i20 Active will get the touchscreen system by end July, while the Verna will see the introduction of the system around Diwali.
