From the looks of it, Hyundai is moving to a more matured, Euro-inspired design, with a neat slit of a grille connecting the large, swept-back headlights. Just below it is an enormous trapezoidal air intake underlined by a smaller inlet and flanked by large fog lights.
At the rear, there are blacked-out C-pillars, slim tail lights and a number plate recess on the bumper. Incidentally, the tail lights on this particular unit are different from the L-shaped ones on a prototype spotted in Europe, so this could be a model unique to India, most probably a longer “Grand” model in the vein of the Grand i10.
The new Hyundai i20 is expected to make use of the i10‘s 1.0 litre three-cylinder and 1.25 litre four-cylinder engines, as well as the current i20‘s 1.4 litre petrol and – in India at least – turbodiesel engines. An N-badged hot hatch is also reportedly on the cards.
