South Korean automaker Hyundai has taken the wraps off the second generation i20 supermini which will receive its first public outing in October at the Paris Motor Show. Looking significantly more refined than its predecessor, the all-new i20 is 4035mm long and comes with a wheelbase that has been stretched by 45mm to 2570mm. Hyundai says the additional distance between the axles has provided the vehicle with a best-in-class combined front & rear legroom of 1892mm. In the back there’s a spacious trunk with a cargo capacity of 320 liters. A nice touch is the blackened C-pillar while higher-end variants come with LED taillights.
Hyundai has not provided photos of the cabin but we do know the 2015 i20 will be available with a start/stop button, rear AC vents, console armrest (with storage box), Bluetooth & USB & AUX connectivity, along with auto-folding mirrors and a Supervision instrument cluster. Other notable features include automatic climate control system, tilt & telescopic multi-function steering wheel as well as a driver seat height adjustment.
Details of the engine lineup for the Euro-spec model have not been published but the Indian version will come with a 1.2-liter Kappa gasoline engine rated at 83 PS and a 1.4-liter CRDi with 90 PS.
