The New Generation Hyundai i20 was revealed at the Paris Motor Show earlier this month
This new model is based on Hyundai's Fluidic Sculpture design philosophy for a more modern look, and features bi-function headlamps and LED daytime running lights that merge into the front grille.
The interior has been moderrnised as well, with a spacious cabin that offers greater comfort and sophistication. It's now roomier thanks to a new, longer wheelbase, and has more legroom for all passengers – a class-leading 1892mm for both front and back seats! This additional legroom as not been at the cost of bootspace either, which has an impressive 326-litres capacity. This makes the New Generation i20 a true five-door car, and comfortable even on long journeys.
The technology has been modernised and upgraded too, with new options for front and rear parking assist, heated steering wheel, static bending headlamps, lane departure warning system and a new automatic defog system.
Hyundai has also introduced the option of a new panoramic sunroof, which can either tilt or be opened fully – perfect for those summer journeys.
The engines from the previous model are continued on the New Generation i20, with some improvements. There is a choice of three engines – a 'Kappa' petrol unit and two U-II diesel engines – that all delivery a great driving experience. All three have been thoroughly tested in all conditions, including ride and handling testing in alpine mountain areas, hot summer evaluation in southern Europe and cold winter testing in Scandinavia, in temperatures ranging between -35 and +40 Celcius and at altitudes of up to 2500 metres.
The new 1.0-litre 'Kappa' petrol engine is the first of a new generation of downsized turbocharged engines, offering up to 120PS and 172Nm of torque and providing a nice blend of performance and efficiency.
The New Generation i20 goes on sale in November and comes with Hyundai's Five Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty as standard, including five years of roadside assistance and five years of vehicle health checks.
