Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

Regular Indian Autos Blog readers know that Hyundai has commenced testing of the second generation i20 for a mid-2014 launch.

Spyshots of the new global hatchback testing on Indian roads were also shown to you earlier this year. Now, Autobild.de has envisioned the new i20 based on the clues gathered from test mules.

The speculative rendering shows a sharply designed front fascia, giving the car a more aggressive character. The redesigned hexagonal secondary airdam and the foglamp enclosure are significant departures up front.

The profile would undergo an extensive change as depicted in the rendering, with the shoulder line shifting to a higher position. To mask the bulk, the hatchback would get stronger crease lines and blacked out C-Pillars. According to Autobild’s rendering, the rear is characterized by Auris-style boomerang taillamps and a high loading lip.

The 2015 Hyundai i20 would be unveiled next year and its main European rival is the VW Polo. In India, the Grand i10’s entry with a diesel engine may elevate the i20’s positioning to the C Segment. It remains to be seen if the upgraded i20 adheres to small car rules, as the current car is dangerously close (in length) to 4m mark.

Just like the current car, the hatchback is expected to come packed with equipment, in convenience and safety, cascading from higher segments.
