New Hyundai i20 Exterior Detailed In Pictures
Take a closer look at the stunning design of the latest-generation Hyundai premium hatchback
The third generation of the Hyundai i20 is now on sale in India and it looks a lot different from the previous model. Like the new Creta, the new i20 also follows Hyundai’s latest design philosophy called Sensuous Sportiness. Let’s take a look at the new Hyundai premium hatchback’s exterior in more detail:
The front of the new i20 is its most aggressive side as the front fascia features plenty of sharp and angular details dominated by the hexagonal-looking grille. Its front bumper is quite slim between the blacked-out grille and the air dam but wide on the sides.
The turbo-petrol variants get the mesh-type grille while other variants get a simpler grille design as seen above.
There’s even a splitter-like design under the front bumper. The fog lamp housings are sculpted to look like sporty air vents.
Matching the sharp details of the front fascia, the new i20’s headlamps are quite angular. The integrated LED daytime running lights are positioned above the LED projector headlamps. It has a three-stripe design for the turn-indicators that are actually positioned towards the grille rather than the outside of the headlamp unit. The i20 does get projector fog lamps but they’re still halogen units.
The LED headlamp units also feature cornering lamps.
The rear-end design of the new i20 continues the sharp and angular details as seen on the front of the car. It features a gloss black surround for the rear windscreen and continues down till the chrome bar connecting the LED taillamps. The rear bumper is quite chunky and accentuates the width of the i20 which slopes outwards from the roof. Underneath the bumper, we can spot a faux diffuser design as well. However, it doesn’t look as sporty from the rear as it does from the front.
Hyundai has given its latest premium hatch sporty LED taillamps in the shape of a Z. The light signature doesn’t light up all the way around the side and instead has the i20 branding inside the taillamp unit. The connecting chrome bar also splits the Z-shaped light signature from the other elements of the split taillamps such as the turn indicators, reversing lamp and brake light.
The fuel cap design has been cleverly integrated with the taillamp design on the left side of the new i20.
The new i20 looks sportier than ever with the low front end that continues to slope upwards from the bonnet, the steeply raked windscreen and till the roofline. All the cabin pillars are blacked out in the dual-tone finish which gives it a sporty contrast. Even in the monotone painted variants, the blacked-out B-pillar and chrome surround towards the rear make it look quite premium. The character line along the profile of the new i20 also goes upwards from the headlamps till the tail lamps. Furthermore, the bottom of the door panels are also sculpted and the contrast-black side sills add to the sportiness of the new i20.
There are some interesting design details on the top half of the new i20’s rear end. It has a discrete integrated roof spoiler that also houses the top-mounted stop lamp. The sides of the rear windscreen get a gloss black section that connects to the spoiler and has small fin-like bumps designed into it. Given the popularity of chrome in the Indian car market, many may like the chrome insert surrounding the rear quarter window that lines up with the chrome surround along the window line.
Hyundai is offering the latest i20 with 16-inch diamond-cut alloys while the 15-inch steelies are limited to the entry variant only. Though the 16-inch wheels don’t look as cool as the 17-inch wheels offered on the European-spec i20, they’re still sporty enough for its segment in the Indian automotive landscape.
It is available in 8 colour choices: 6 monotone and 2 dual-tone options. The latter has a contrast black roof with the red and white exterior paints. Hyundai has introduced a new Metallic Copper colour on the new i20 hatchback.
The new i20 is offered with a range of powertrain options which consist of two petrol engines and a diesel one. Its cabin has been revamped too and is feature-packed as usual, including a digital instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with connected car technology. The stunning design, the performance and its long list of features make it a bit costly, with prices ranging between Rs 6.80 lakh and Rs 11.18 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It continues to rival the likes of the Maruti Baleno/Toyota Glanza, Tata Altroz, Honda Jazz and Volkswagen Polo.
