While the Hyundai i20 sedan might still be far from becoming a reality, a test mule of the sedan derivative of Hyundai HB20 hatchback was recently spotted testing in Brazil. The HB20 is basically a more stylish but low cost version of the i20 hatchback and has been developed exclusively for the Brazilian car market.
The HB20 has met with great success in Brazil but Hyundai is certainly not among those to sit back and relax on their laurels. The Chevrolet Onix, HB20’s arch rival, is close to getting a sedan variant (Prima) for Brazilian market and it is hence only fitting for Hyundai to come up with the sedan version of the HB20.
As with most hatchback-derived sedans, the front half of the HB20 sedan will be same as the hatchback version but will come with big changes starting from the B pillar.
The HB20 sedan will come with a sweeping roof that will join the thick C-pillar. It is being said that the car will come with a rear end styling that will be highly based on the carmaker’s Fluidic Sculpture design language.
The car will come with wrap around tail lamps, a beefy rear bumper and number plate housing on the trunk lid.
It is being said that the car will be called as the Hyundai HB20S and will be powered by 1.0-litre and 1.6-litre flex fuel engines.
The Hyundai HB20 sedan will be launched soon after the Prisma’s Brazil car market launch in March.
