2020 Hyundai i20 will be a handsome hatchback

Hyundai previews the next-gen i20 via design sketches


This year's Geneva Motor Show will be a busy one for Hyundai as it will be revealing a slew of new offerings. Aside from the i30 compact hatchback, Hyundai is also set to reveal the all-new i20 next month.

Featuring the brand's 'Sensuous Sportiness' design language, the next-gen i20 will be the first European model to carry the new look. Based on the design sketches Hyundai released, the subcompact hatch will get an aggressive styling.

Starting with the front fascia, the prominent 'Cascading Grill' appears to run horizontally with the sleek LED headlights and front fenders. Meanwhile, distinct daytime running lights give the i20 a mean and sophisticated appearance. Finally, the front bumper and redesigned foglights further highlight the i20's sportier demeanor.

A bold character line, along with a sleek roofline and a pair of eye-catching taillights complement the hatchback's sexy looks. The rear bumper, on the other hand, has been redesigned and appears to have an integrated diffuser for better aerodynamics.

Images of the i20's interior have yet to be revealed. However, they did mention that it will come with an elegant cabin complete with a 10.25-inch touchscreen display, and a fully-digital instrument cluster.

A wide array of naturally-aspirated and turbocharged engines could be available for the new i20. Moreover, an N Line variant, as well as a high-performance N model may be offered as well in the near future.

Hyundai will officially take the covers off the i20, as well as the i30 on March 5.
