Hyundai releases sketches of all-new i20, hatchback to debut in March
Hyundai Motor has released sketches of the all-new i20, indicating that it will feature a completely new design and that it will be the first car in Europe to carry Hyundai’s new design language: ‘Sensuous Sportiness’.
The all-new i20 will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2020. This will be the third generation Hyundai i20. The premium hatchback missed the Auto Expo 2020, but is likely to be launched in India at a later date.
The teaser images show that the all-new i20 will have a more sporty and dynamic look. The cascading grille in the front running horizontally to the sides results in the characteristic wide and low body. Also the unique lighting signature underlines the width and the stance of the all-new i20.

The bold character line on the side of the body emphasizes the car’s sporty proportions and agility. The rear is complemented with a horizontal tail lamp design which is seamlessly connected with the rear glass.
The horizontal blades covering the dashboard are a real icon of the all-new i20 interior. The slick treatment emphasises the width of the front fascia and neatly disguises the air vents. The 'Sensuous Sportiness' design language has already made its way to Hyundai cars in India courtesy Aura sedan, Tucson 2020 and Creta 2020. The Tucson and Creta have been showcased and the official launch are expected soon.
As for the i20, to further enhance the elegance and the aesthetics of its interior, the new digital cluster and the main centre fascia have been combined together and feature two 10.25-inch screens.

The present version of Hyundai i20 is priced between ₹5.59 lakh and ₹9.41 lakh (ex-showroom). When launched, the new Hyundai i20 will take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki’s Baleno, Tata Motor’s Altroz, Volkswagen’ Polo and Honda Jazz.
