It is no news that the next-gen i20 will be a fairly sharper and aggressive looking model featuring Hyundai's latest design theme. It is set to use more intimidating styling elements such as broader front grille, sharper front lights, DRLs, Z-shaped tail lights, new 16-inch diamond-cut alloys, triangular housing for fog lamps, faux rear diffuser, sportier bumpers and silhouette. All these design updates will make the model a much more up-market product in comparison to the current car.
The new i20 (international-spec) gets a segment-first 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system which comes seamlessly merged with the instrument console. The latter is also a 10.25-inch unit. (More details here)

Some of the key connectivity and entertainment features on the infotainment system include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto connectivity and new connected car solutions including Hyundai Live services, Blue Link app services, voice recognition and more services.The Euro-spec i20 also gets a wireless charging pad and an optional Bose audio system featuring eight speakers.
In India, the 2021 i20 is expected to be introduced in three engine configurations: a 1.2-litre MPi unit, a 1.0-litre T-GDi unit and a 1.5-litre U2 CRDi unit. It will go on to rival the likes of the Maruti Baleno, Tata Altroz, VW Polo and Renault Clio.
