Hyundai i20 Official pictures and Specs!

After all the spy pictures that had been circulating around the web, Hyundai has finally released the first photo of the all new Hyundai i20. The Hyundai i20 is a 5-door hatchback which will replace the Getz and compete with the Skoda Fabia, Indica Vista and the Suzuki Swift. The i20 is the third product of Hyundai from the ‘i’ series, a segment above the i10 and a segment below the i30.

The Hyundai i20 is based on an all new platform that has a longer wheelbase than the Getz, which means an extention of interior space, which is good for the comfort of the passengers. The i20 is styled at Hyundai’s European Design Centre in Russelsheim, Germany. The president of Hyundai Europe, Kun Hee Ahn says “The i20 was designed and engineered to meet European tastes and needs”. He also notes that the ride and handling development took place on the European roads, which has created a firm and agile drive.

The new i20 will have more features, more mileage, better interior space and better styling. The engine specifications have not been confirmed yet, but we can expect a 1.2L petrol, 1.4L diesel and the recently launched 1.2L Kappa engine.

There is a special engine that have been developed which will be eco-friendly. A 1.4L diesel engine that will produce 90bhp and torque of 220Nm along with a 6-speed manual transmission. This version is called the i20 blue. Low rolling resistance tires and high performance, low friction engine oil will be used. According to Hyundai the i20 i-blue emits only 99g/km and returns 68mpg which is around an impressive 24kmpl. But we will have to wait and see if the i20 blue will be launched in India.
