Hyundai almost completed tests of a completely new generation of i20 hatchback

The tests captured the prototype of the South Korean hatchback Hyundai i20 of the next generation. Judging by the published pictures, the car has already received all the serial elements of the exterior.

In June 2019, foreign publications published photos from the next generation Hyundai i20 tests – the car was spotted on public roads in Europe. The prototype was heavily disguised, but nevertheless, one could notice the appearance and sporty silhouette of the hatchback inspired by the stylish exterior of the new Hyundai Sonata.

Now we have at our disposal new photos of the South Korean news and to be honest we are very surprised to see that the prototype has an additional disguise in front that hides what we already saw. Hatchback test samples this time were spotted at the Hyundai test center in Sweden. In general, the new generation i20 looks quite familiar in its general form and it looks like the prototype has already received serial headlights and taillights. The body is probably also in its final form, and we can assume that the work on designing a new model is completed. The South Korean automaker is likely to make the latest changes to the car’s settings before it enters the market, which is scheduled for the end of this year.

 The new i20 seems longer and slightly wider than its current performance and, logically, this should have a positive effect on the amount of free space in the cabin, especially in the rear seats.

 Under the hood, we expect to see a new 1.0-liter turbocharged engine. The motor will be available in two power options – one of them per 100 horsepower. The basic version of the i20 should get an atmospheric 1.0-liter engine. There were rumors of the appearance of a new automatic transmission, which will notice the current “automatic” with four speeds.
