The new version of Hyundai i20 super mini gets a fresh new face, enhanced equipments, and lowered CO2.
The new styling details are on the par with the rest of Hyundai’s current range, featuring curvy headlights, and the signature grille, plus a wide mouth. They give the car an identity, but they don’t really make it look better than the old model.
The city hatchback will be available with a lineup of four engines, including a new 1.1-litre, 3-cylinder ‘U-II’ diesel engine that generates 75 ps and, at 84 g/km, best-in-class CO2 emissions.You need better performance, you should then go for the 1.4-litre ‘U-II’ 90 ps engine, which emits 96 g/km.
The length of the new i20 has increased by just 55 mm (front 30 mm, rear 25 mm), while the rest of it remains the same – width (1710 mm), height (1490 mm) and wheelbase (2525 mm). The extra length does not really make a difference in the car’s overall size. It’s still tiny.
The new, upgraded i20 will be on display at Hyundai’s booth at 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
