The upcoming next gen Hyundai i20 has been spied testing. The car was spotted undergoing testing in Spain.
The Korean car maker is readying the new gen i20 for its launch next year. We have extensively reported when the upcoming new gen 2015 i20 was caught testing in India. Since, recently Hyundai introduced the new i10, which has grown in size, Hyundai needs to ensure that the i20’s dimensions are also increased, to widen the gap between the two.
A premium hatchback from the Korean car maker, the new gen i20 will have a longer wheelbase, marginally more width and also more spacious interiors. The test mule seen here features sweptback headlights, a bigger lower front grille and vertical taillights. Just like the current gen model. the car will also come with a tailgate-mounted spoiler and turn signals built into the mirrors.
Under the hood, Hyundai will use the 1.1 liter 3 pot diesel engine and the 1.2 liter 4 pot gasoline engine. Also, Hyundai will use the 1.0 and 1.4 liter diesel engines. The engines will be mated to 5 and 6 speed manual transmissions, and also on offer would be the automatic transmission.
The next gen 2015 i20 will be codenamed internally as ‘IB’ and is expected to use current i20’s platform. Hyundai will use this model to build the upcoming N performance variant which is slated for 2015 launch.
