This is the world’s first, and what can be seen over here are the first ever images surfaced on internet of the most awaited “new i20”!
The new hatchback looks primarily to caste the taste of Europeans for most of the sought. The car now features crisp and sharper liners unlike the fluidic and curve edges of the ongoing generation.
In fact, the deigning and drawing cues are most probably taken from the Grand i10 and the Xcent. The low mounted grille with the mesh for central air intake is forming a V-type stance on the front fascia. The metal inputs in the headlamps are propped to do the rest of the detailing. The placement of the numbers plate is also well-executed.
On contrary, the whole car is raking a sporty image, with the rising shoulder line and sloping roof submerging together at the rear. To some of the extent, the new i20 will also have a blackened C-pillar to aid the Hyundai hatchback a floating roof element. At the same time, deployed with such jargons, the new Hyundai i20 is looked upon as a more upmarket model with the European tweaks.
Now, the Hyundai is also done with the longer wheelbase ample of cabin space guaranteed with the size larger and comfortable interiors. The hatchback is expected to go on sale in September 2014, that too to be a host of new technologies like it used to be always coupled with the segments’ first features.
Under the hoods, it could be the 1.4-liter diesel engine of 89bhp and 1.2-liter petrol Kappa engine of 83bhp lifted from Xcent. Marrying to them will be the five speed automatic gearbox in the optional list. To addition, Hyundai is looking forward to launch the sportier ‘N’ or performance version of the new i20, to rival the sporty stance of its major competitor the ‘Swift’.
Hence, the launch will conclude it how it’s going to fare in the competition. We guess the Koreans seem serious this time with regards to outdoing the rival from the competition in attention to new i20.
