Hyundai showcases its i20 facelift at the Geneva Motor Show. The refreshed i20 gets a light dose of Hyundai’s latest fluidic sculpture design language which is clearly seen in the front styling. The headlights are slimmer and the grille is hexagonal.
The front bumper is completely new with re-styled housings for the fog lamps and a much-wider chin. The hood design is also updated possibly due to the new EU crash-test regulations. Styling changes to the rear include a new bumper and re-profiled tail lamps. It also gets new alloy-wheel designs. The updated i20 also features minor tweaks to the interiors.
For the international markets, the i20 will be unveiled with its new 1.1-litre, 3-cylinder ‘U-II’ diesel engine that generates 74bhp. When mated to Hyundai’s Blue Drive technologies, this derivative emits just 84 g/km of CO2 - a figure lower than any other car with a conventional powertrain. This 3-cylinder motor was developed at Hyundai’s Diesel Centre of Excellence – part of the European R&D set-up in Rüsselsheim, Germany – and showcases it’s expertise in clean diesel technology.
