“Live” photos of the new Hyundai i20 appeared on the webMay 5, 2020
A new generation Korean hatchback was spotted by photo spies with virtually no camouflage.
In mid-February, we already published pictures of the new Hyundai i20. It became clear from them that the third-generation model will receive a fresh design, additional technologies and a wide range of driver safety systems, which will make Hyundai the leader in its class. Today, IndianAutosBlog published live snapshots of the model directly from the tests.
As we noted earlier, the new i20 is both familiar and fresh. Hyundai’s current design language is reflected in the updated hatchback in front with a wide grille. At the rear, the i20 is equipped with an LED strip that runs through the entire trunk lid and connects the new taillights installed in the upgraded bumper.
In terms of proportions, the new i20 remains a compact model. The roof got a little lower, but the car was about 30 millimeters wider and even got a little longer (5 mm). The wheelbase also increased by 10 mm, which means an increase in the inside space for rear row passengers.
In the interior of the new Hyundai there will be a 10.25-inch digital dashboard, which is combined with another 10.25-inch central touch screen multimedia complex. Features such as wireless mobile phone charging, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, and an eight-speaker Bose audio system are among the luxurious options, and Hyundai also offers all kinds of additional services through Bluelink Connected Car Services.
The i20 technical revolution continues with the Hyundai SmartSense safety package, which includes navigation smart cruise control that can track the vehicle’s location and automatically adjust speed, a traffic assistance system and lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring and cross-traffic alerts, and also an upgraded frontal collision warning system that can detect pedestrians.
Under the hood of the i20 will be a 1.2-liter 83-horsepower four-cylinder engine with a five-speed manual gearbox. In addition, the engine range will include a power unit with a soft hybrid technology, which includes a 99-liter turbocharged 1.0-liter GDi engine with 99 hp or 118 hp, a pair of which is a 48-volt starter-generator. As a transmission, the unit will receive a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, or a new “smart” six-speed gearbox.
The debut of the new Hyundai i20 was supposed to take place at the Geneva Motor Show, but the latter was canceled due to the coronavirus. Therefore, the model can be presented by the end of May.
