2015 Hyundai i20 Coupe arrives with a clear design differentiation

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 10, 2014

Hyundai has just introduced the all-new 2015 i20 Coupe and the biggest surprise is that this model will be differentiated by design when compared to the five-door version. According to Hyundai, the raked A-, B- and C-pillars are different from the five-door model and offer the i20 Coupe a more dynamic profile.

As you can see from the photos, the front end of the vehicle shows a different approach of Hyundai’s grille design that sits in a new front bumper. Moreover, we find bolder wheel arches which dominate the rear quarter of the Coupe, a new rear bumper and a brand new rear roof spoiler.

Furthermore, to further differentiate the Coupe from the five-door model, Hyundai introduced a new Tangerine Orange exterior colour as well as a matching interior colour option. Even more interesting is a new 17-inch wheel design.

Under the hood, we find a 1.1-liter diesel engine bolted to a standard 6-speed manual transmission that delivers 75 hp at 4000 rpm and 180 Nm of torque.

There is also a bigger 1.4-liter diesel engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission that develops 90 hp at 4000 rpm and 240 Nm of torque between 1500 rpm and 2500 rpm.

When it comes to petrol engines, Hyundai offers a 1.25-liter engine with 84 hp @ 6000 rpm and 122 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm, bolted to a 5-speed manual transmission as standard.

A bigger 1.4-liter petrol engine is available with 100 hp @ 6000 rpm and 134 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm. The engine is offered as standard with a 6-speed manual transmission or an optional 4-speed automatic transmission.
