This time the photospies managed to photograph the front of the future news. The exterior features of the cross-version of the i20 still hide camouflage, but some of the new design elements can be seen.

Hyundai is preparing for the official debut of the new generation of hatchback Hyundai i20, as well as its off-road version i20 Active. Promise to present new items this year. A couple of days ago, the camouflaged novelty was captured during one of the final road tests. On the spy shots that got into the Network, despite the rather dense protective film, we see a more squat car silhouette, an increased grille with a large pattern and a chrome impact piece, we guess the outlines of spectacular head optics on LED matrices.

Off-road version gets a plastic protective body kit, athletic wheel arch extensions and rails.

 It is known that the new product will be based on the upgraded platform of its predecessor. The engine lineup of the new Hyundai i20 will be supplemented by a 1.2-liter, 83-hp gasoline engine, a 90-hp turbo diesel 1.4 liters, and a liter turbo engine with a capacity of 100 or 120 horsepower. For the last power unit, a seven-speed robotized gearbox is provided, for the first two – a manual gearbox with five or six stages. Drive – front.

 Inside, auto experts expect to see a new front panel, which will be decorated with a large multimedia touchscreen, a truncated steering wheel and a modernized dashboard. The first commodity cars will get to official dealers only in the spring of 2020.

Meanwhile, Land Rover unveiled off-road Defender 2020 model year.
