What you see on this page are spy images of both the 2014 Hyundai i10 and the 2015 Hyundai i20 that have been spotted testing together in Korea.
Enough has already been talked about the upcoming 2014 Hyundai i10 and the next gen car is looking poised to become the ‘next big thing’ from Hyundai. The upcoming generation of i10 is almost half a shoe size bigger than the current i10 and as can be observed in the pics, the next i10’s greenhouse is similar in basic shape but has definitely grown in size.
The next gen i10 will be considerably larger than the current car, while sporting the plus points of the current gen model. The car will be sold with both petrol and diesel engine options and is likely to get a 1.1 Litre turbo diesel motor for the diesel variant. This engine will have a max power output of 75 Bhp of a peak torque figure of 150 Nm. The Hyundai BA is also expected to spawn a compact sedan in future. This sedan would sit beneath the India bound Hyundai HB20S based compact sedan and might throw open gates to an all new segment of small sedans.
The 2014 Hyundai i10 could be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September this year.
The next gen 2015 Hyundai i20, test mule of which you can see in these pics, will have a longer wheelbase, marginally more width and even more spacious interiors.
The next gen i20 is expected to make its public debut next year and will come as a 2015 model. While the next gen i20 seems to have got a longer wheelbase, it is unlikely that the overall length of the car will exceed 4 metres. The current i20 measures 3,995mm, which means that the next car might not be longer than the current model. It may be noted that India is an important market for Hyundai and a 4m-plus overall length would mean that the car won’t be eligible for excise duty benefits in our country.
