Hyundai i20 is one of the most popular hatchbacks in India, owing to its premium looks, great comfort, and the brand’s excellent service and support system. It comes as no shock that the next-generation i20 is soon to launch in India.
The new-gen Hyundai i20 has already been officially revealed online, and before that, it had been spied multiple times on the streets of South Korea during its road testing. Now, a new spy video of the upcoming car has surfaced online that shows the model being tested on Indian roads.
The video has been posted by a Youtube channel called ‘Power Stroke’. In the video, we can see the India-bound next-gen i20 in full-body camouflage, driving around the streets of Tamil Nadu. At the beginning of the video, we can see the car parked near another test vehicle, which could be the upcoming Kia Sonet. Regardless, the video manages to successfully capture the car from different angles, while also recognising some important features that will be offered in the India-spec version. These include a sunroof, LED taillamps, projector headlamps with LED DRLS, dual-tone (diamond-cut) alloy wheels, window-mounted ORVMs, and Sonata-inspired steering wheel.
The front fascia of the next-gen i20 resembles the Hyundai Verna facelift
Spy pictures and videos aside, we actually have a fair idea of what equipment the car will offer, and what it looks like in pictures, but we still have to wait to know what the car would look like in the metal, that to the official pictures. The exterior of the car is sharper than the outgoing model, and the front-end has been inspired by the Hyundai Verna facelift, especially the front grille and headlamps. The rear end is completely new, and has ‘Z’ shaped LED taillight on either end joined together by a horizontal strip.
The interior of the 2020 Hyundai i20 look futuristic
The interior design is also completely new compared to the old model. The dashboard looks futuristic with all its sweeping lines and creases. The touchscreen unit for the infotainment system juts upwards from the dash, and joins into the housing of the all-digital instrument cluster. The four-spoke steering wheel is another design highlight.
The new car will also have two new engine options, apart from one old one. The 1.2-litre petrol engine will be carried over from the outgoing version. Apart from that, you’ll get a new 1.5-litre diesel engine and a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine. Both these engines will be borrowed from the Hyundai Venue BS6.
