The 2015 version of the Hyundai i20 has been photographed again; this time more thoroughly than ever before, inside out! The latest spy shots come courtesy of Carscoops.com and apparently have been clicked up somewhere in Europe (Germany, going by the registration plate).
These are the best ever images of the car which reveal some new juicy bits. The new spyshots show the rear of the car as well as interiors showing a heavily wired up mule with a lot of test equipment to monitor various performance parameters.
The uncovered rear end of the new i20 sports thoroughly redesigned tail lamps and possibly redesigned bumpers and the boot of the car. The rear is comprehensively redone and looks more mature and sophisticated than the current model. The front end unfortunately couldn’t be made out from underneath the black camo but would definitely carry the design language that’s evident at the rear.
The interiors are a revelation. The new i20 seems to have gone sedate; more businesslike. Or perhaps this particular variant of the i20 has that kind of a dashboard. The manual lever for the side mirrors would mean that the photographed i20 might not be the top-shelf variant.
The interiors also show the speedo calibrated to 220 km/h and the rev meter marked all the way up to 8000 RPM. Right from the instrument cluster to the console to the dashboard to the music player, AC knobs everything has gone through a change, a comprehensive one at that.
Looks like this Next-Gen Hyundai i20 is going to be a lot softer and mature than the current looking younger sharper i20 we have on sale here. The major point of interest is that Hyundai is testing the next-Gen i20 simultaneously in India as well. The current set of 1.2L & 1.4L petrol and 1.4L CRDI diesel are expected to be carried over to the next-gen i20 in India.
Official unveiling is expected in October incidentally at the same show where it debuted in 2008 – the Paris Motor Show!
