The new-generation Hyundai i20 will make its debut at the 2020 Auto Expo, followed by its launch. We have seen the vehicle in multiple spy pictures and speculative renderings. Though, a latest digital rendering shows the sporty rear design of the 2020 Hyundai i20.
The new connected LED taillamps with integrated turn indicators seem inspired by the new-generation Hyundai Creta (2020 Hyundai iX25). The rear bumper has also been revised and features a thick chrome bar enwrapping reflector lights at both ends.
Carrying wider stance, the 2020 Hyundai i20 looks more aggressive and slightly closer to the ground. Though, the premium hatchback retains the original design and dimensions. The all-new model will sit on a slightly modified version of the existing platform.
Major changes are likely to be made inside the cabin as well. The premium hatchback will receive a newly-designed dashboard along with a fully digital instrument panel with a centrally placed MID screen and a twin-segmented display. It might also borrow several features from the Hyundai Venue subcompact SUV including the BlueLink connected car technology.
On the engine front, the 2020 Hyundai i20 might receive the BS6-compliant 1.2L naturally aspirated petrol and 1.5-litre diesel motor. The latter one could be borrowed from the Kia Seltos. Transmission choices might include a 5-speed manual, a 6-speed manual and a CVT unit.
Reports suggest that the South Korean carmaker might also bring in the performance-oriented Hyundai i20 N-Line in India. This model comes powered by a 1.0L T-GDI turbocharged petrol engine paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT).
