Hyundai has revealed design renderings of the next generation i20. The new version of the company’s B-segment model features the brand’s ‘Fluidic Sculpture 2.0’ design philosophy.
The long hood as well as sculpted body sides give the car a “powerful stance”, say the designers. In profile, the dark treatment of the C-pillar is another attempt to visually accentuate the car’s length.
The front presents a new interpretation of the traditional Hyundai hexagonal grille together with a new thin horizontal strip connecting the headlamps. At the back, the car features a wrap-around rear window and pronounced lamp clusters.
Designed at Hyundai’s European design centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany, the new i20 will aim to target the likes of the Ford Fiesta.
The car will be officially unveiled at the Paris motor show in October.
