Spied – Front fascia of 2015 Hyundai i20 with thin camouflage

Posted on: Jun 10, 2014 - 10:44pm IST

The 2015 Hyundai i20 has been spotted numerous times, both in India and abroad but the camouflaged test mules did good to keep everyone guessing about the frontal design of the next gen premium hatchback.

The latest spy pictures from Europe have surfaced online and this time, the front fascia is partially revealed. Changes are quite drastic with styling influences coming from the larger Genesis in the grille and bumper area.

The prominent trapezium shaped air-intake with chrome outlining catches the eye. The front grill is a straight slit connecting the headlamps compared to the current car’s V-shaped element. Headlamps are pushed further to the edges to help the sense of width while the new bumper incorporates a chin spoiler like in the Polo.

The profile of the next gen i20 is completely new as evident from the revised glasshouse, especially the rear quarter panel. A new interior design, with a drastically different dashboard, has also been planned out for the next gen i20.

Hyundai is likely to keep the powertrain lineup unchanged. The India-spec car could get the same 1.2-litre petrol and 1.4-litre diesel engines mated to 5- and 6-speed manual gearboxes respectively. A 1.4-litre petrol motor paired only to an automatic gearbox could also be offered.

According to our sources, India would be the first market to get the new i20. The Indian launch is expected to take place in September, in the run up to festive season, whereas the European premiere would be held at the Paris Motor Show in October.

    If hyundai wants this i20 to succeed truly, then they have to allow this car to create the space of its own on the basis of sound inherent driving qualities. (Almost all their offerings are practically offering same things – VFM, Decent quality,Nice interior space, at dangerously close price points)

    Worthy to price tag Driving dynamics, drivetrain refinement, steering has to be provided rather than just a good VFM, space & decent quality, fit and finish proposition (which the previous i20 actually was).

    Otherwise, this product will get cannibalized by its own siblings (Xcent, Grand i10) which are practically offering the same things which previous i20 did.Or will be eaten up slowly by competition who have started loading up features in their cars. (the only actual forte or USP hyundai has got, IMHO)

    HMI is just bringing out the motor boats one after the other.They should learn from Hyundai Australia as they are doing some really good stuff when it comes to sorting out Ride, handling & dialling some driving pleasure.

    HMI needs to understand that with time more and more people have started understanding the benefits and fun that dynamically balanced cars bring (and yes, they are much safer and feel way more secure on higher speeds) and also that fact that the features can be loaded up in cars almost overnight as compared to honing the driving skills of the cars which takes time and lots of it.
