Hyundai’s design has been on a slow but constant rise over the past few years, with each new model better than the last. The latest Hyundai o benefit from this trend is the i20 hatchback, previewed here in these official renderings.
As it turns out, ‘Fluidic Sculpture 2.0’ design philosophy works on small scale, too. The new Hyundai i20 looks rather handsome for what it is – an extremely affordable city runabout with decent quality and good features.
One could argue that the front end of the new i20 looks too much like a Kia Pro Ceed, and that the back is almost identical to Alfa Romeo Guilietta. And those are fair arguments. But that doesn’t matter when we’re talking about a B-segment car. Highlights of the new Hyundai i20 in terms of design include hexagonal grille,new thin horizontal strip connecting the headlamps, wrap-around rear window and unique treatment for the lamp clusters.
The New Generation i20 will makes its official debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show in October.
