The shots provide the first look at the new Hyundai i20’s cabin, which appears much sharper and more modern than that of the outgoing model.

The images of the 2015 Hyundai i20 have appeared online, revealing the final production design of the new-generation city car.

The images, published by Motor Trend India, uncover the front, rear and interior styling of the all-new i20 almost two months ahead of the car’s anticipated public debut at October’s Paris motor show.

The spied i20 remains largely true to Hyundai’s official design sketches released five days ago.

Penned at the South Korean brand’s European design centre in Russelsheim, Germany, using the company’s new Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language, the city car features wraparound headlights, a large hexagonal diamond-effect grille, broad tail-lights spanning the tailgate and quarter panels and a pillar-less floating roof at the rear.

The instrument cluster features a TFT display trip computer, multi-function three-spoke steering wheel, a basic audio system at the top of the centre stack and air conditioning controls at its base.

Motor Trend India reports the new Hyundai i20 is 10mm shorter than the outgoing model, measuring 3985mm from nose to tail, but 45mm longer between the wheels (2570mm wheelbase) and 24mm wider (1734mm).


The 2015 Hyundai i20 bears little resemblance to the car it will replace. Gone are the rounded edges, instead of which Hyundai designers have chosen to go ahead with more pointed corners. This is the evolution of the Fluidic Design philosophy that the company prosaically calls 2.0. We saw this first in the Grand i10 last year and more recently in the Santa Fe and Xcent. The airdam is a wide piece and features a chrome outline. The bumper has sporty appendages while the fog lamps are wide units. The headlamps are also big and have inserts within them. Standard now for the i20 range are 15-inch wheels and there will be diamond cut 16-inch alloys on the top end variants. The ORVMs also have blinkers on them while the C-pillar in the spy images looks blacked out. Tail lamps are of the wraparound kind with the turn indicators done up in clear lens. The stop lamp is mounted higher up.


Like with the exteriors, Hyundai has spruced up the interiors of the car significantly. A three spoke steering wheel replaces the four spoke one in the current car. There is ambient blue backlighting for the switchgear. The steering wheel, like before, will have audio controls on it as well as the tripmeter settings. Push button start is expected to be standard on mid and top level variants. Creature comforts like automatic climate control and a touch screen music system with 2GB onboard storage will also be part of the features list. The cabin has also grown in size and we can expect more head and legroom. The new i20 will have a rear AC vent like the Grand i10. Boot space though remains the same as in the outgoing car.
