2014 Paris Motor Show Preview: 2015 Hyundai i20 becomes official

Article by Andrew Christian, on August 11, 2014

The 2015 Hyundai i20 was already spotted in India but the Korean manufacturer decided to officially show it today. Set to arrive at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, the 2015 i20 shows a new design dominated by the big chrome-framed hexagonal grille, a new horizontal grille that connects the redesigned headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED positioning lamps and a new lower grille that houses the front fog lamps.

The rear end shows new C-pillar finished in gloss black and boomerang-shaped LED taillights. According to Hyundai, the new i20 features a new platform and a 2750 mm wheelbase (+45 mm when compared with the predecessor).

Due to the longer wheelbase, the combined front and rear legroom is best in class at 1892 mm, while the boot capacity is 326 liters when the rear seats are up.

The interior was influenced by the company’s ‘Fluidic Sculpture 2.0’ design philosophy and was penned at Hyundai’s Design Centre Europe in Russelsheim, Germany. Expect more details next month when the vehicle will be officially introduced at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
