Hyundai’s new generation i20 has won the iF Design Award 2015 in the “Product” discipline, under the “Automobiles / Vehicles / Bikes” category.
The Korean carmaker’s third-generation B-segment vehicle originally made its debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show in October and entered production during the same month.
Longer, lower and wider than the previous model, the latest i20 was penned at Hyundai’s Design Centre Europe in Rüsselsheim, Germany.
The new model’s character is influenced by the latest interpretation of the company’s ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ design philosophy.
Peter Schreyer, president and chief design officer of Hyundai, said: “It’s an honour for Hyundai to be once again internationally recognised in the iF Design Awards, with New Generation i20 following the success of All-New Genesis last year. Design plays a core role in shaping our brand and driving consumer purchases of Hyundai cars, so we’re delighted to receive such a prestigious accolade from a respected authority on design.”
