South Korean automaker, Hyundai has finally unveiled a three-door version of the second generation i20 hatchback. The i20 Coupe will compete against the likes of Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo in the international markets.
The i20 Coupe has new front fascia with larger hexagonal grille, flanked by LED daytime running lamps and fog lights to the side. Based on the Hyundai’s fluidic 2.0 design philosophy, the Coupe features aggressive lines running across the length. Its rear is equipped with larger tail lights, while the sloppy roofline and integrated spoiler gives it a sporty touch. There are raked A, B and C pillars which offers sporty look to the coupe. Its flared wheel arches have been fitted to 17-inch alloy wheels.
The headroom, legroom and shoulder space remains the same, while the roofline has been reduced by 25mm than the current model i20. The boot space has been raised by 10-litre to 336-litre. Hyundai i20 Coupe is available in four engine options- two diesel and two petrol. The gasoline versions include the 83bhp, 1.248cc petrol engine and a 99bhp, 1.4-litre unit. The oil burners are the 74bhp, 1,120cc and 89bhp, 1,396cc units. The diesel engines are paired to a six-speed manual transmission. The entry level petrol variant is coupled to a five-speed manual gearbox, while the 1.4L unit also gets a four-speed automatic transmission.
