As has been reported earlier, the next gen i20 has also been spotted in Europe where it is being assessed for its winter worthiness.
The newest revelation of this story is the time frame when we will be able to see the car in total.

The i20 in its current state wouldn’t strike one as a car needing a redo. It has earned the maximum 5 Stars from Euro NCAP, the Kappa petrol and the CRDI diesel motors have been well accepted for their performance and the car looks gorgeous in total. The stylish i20 also comes with a pretty lengthy feature list making it one of the best selling cars from the Hyundai’s stable.
Incidentally, Paris Motor Show is the same stage where i20 made its world debut in 2008. Before the new i20 breaks cover, Hyundai would like its current i20 to make the most of the momentum it has already generated.
