The Hyundai i20 is soon going to get its long-overdue update. The company will be unveiling the new i20 at the Geneva Motor Show. However, the official images of a production-ready i20 have already surfaced. The new i20 design falls in line with the latest Hyundai cars that were launched during the Auto Expo 2020. The ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design aesthetics encourage sleeker-looking cars and the latest i20 complies with that theme from every aspect.
The Hyundai i20 2020 features a much sleeker grille with an all-new headlamp cluster. The headlights are swept back and are well integrated with the cascading grille. The daytime running lights outline the top half of the headlamps giving the car a meaner fascia. The sharp lines below the grille also accentuate the stance of the car.
The bold character lines running across the sides of the car also give the new i20 an imposing side profile while maintaining the sleek architecture. The tail lamps will see a dramatic makeover as well. The lights have been pinched into a sleeker profile and the bold black bar that runs between both the tail lamps gives the car a more modern-looking rear profile. The scruff plates and low positioned reflectors give the car an illusion of being higher than it actually is.
The blackened c-pillar and dual-tone black roof on this variant give the car a very sporty finish overall. The well-integrated c-pillar also gives a floating roof effect to the car.
The new Hyundai i20 is expected to feature a BS6 petrol engine that can also be found in the Hyundai i10 Nios. Hyundai India might also launch a 1-liter turbo petrol engine for the hot hatch variant. The company might discontinue the 1.4-liter diesel and replace it with a detuned 1.5-liter engine that is found in the Kia Seltos.
The car in the pictures seems to be a top variant with bigger wheels and a dual-tone paint job. The Indian version may come with smaller wheels (at least in the lower variants). The official unveil of the car will happen in March at the Geneva Motor Show.
