Sources have told Indian Autos Blog that Hyundai India could launch the new i20 prior to its European debut, preferably in the July-September period. Last year, Hyundai India launched the Grand i10 (a longer version of the 2014 European i10) even before the car's European debut, and a similar launch strategy might be used for the new i20.
