The new Hyundai i20 will receive a digital dashboard

Photo spies once again managed to capture the updated hatchback and even photograph the interior of the model.

After the i10 was introduced a few months ago in Frankfurt, Hyundai completes the finishing touches of the next-generation i20 “older brother”. The car is still covered with a large layer of camouflage to hide the exterior design, but photo spies managed to quickly look inside the cabin.

From the very beginning, we notice that the analog instrument cluster has been removed to make way for a fully digital panel. It’s too early to say whether the big screen will replace the physical dials with arrows in the base model, or will it be offered only on the more expensive i20 variants. Be that as it may, it seems that the digital tachometer will rotate counterclockwise, as in some Aston Martin models.

The image also gives us the opportunity to make out the rear design of the subcompact hatchback, where the lights seem to continue on the tailgate. In addition, the car can get a control system for leaving the occupied lane.

To the right of the display is an infotainment system with a tablet orientation screen, which today is becoming the norm for new cars. The reason everything in German is probably due to the fact that the i20 is partly being developed at Hyundai’s European Technology Center, located in Rüsselsheim. The rather large size of the touch screen does not allow replacing the physical control, since there are still a number of ordinary buttons under the display.

Look at the center console and you will see climate control settings with a dedicated screen, as well as a couple of USB ports for connecting and recharging a smartphone or other mobile devices. The location of the controls on the steering wheel is similar to what you will find in the current i20, but the location of some functions has changed.
