At Johnsons Cars, we’re always excited to read about upcoming models, and we can’t wait for the latest incarnation of the Hyundai i20 hatchback to arrive this September!
The all-new i20 represents the beginning of a new era for the popular South Korean marque. This sleek supermini introduces a new design language, and also boasts best-in-class safety and connectivity features, plus optional mild-hybrid technology. Read on to discover more about this exciting model…
The exterior of the all-new i20 features improved proportions, plus striking front and rear bumpers, a new radiator grille and signature rear lighting. The model also marks the start of a “revolutionary and ambitious” new design language for Hyundai. It’s the first European car to represent the new ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ identity, as Chief Design Officer Luc Donckerwolke explains:
“The word ‘sensuous’ integrates the value of more emotion in our designs. ‘Sportiness’ implies dynamics, to be reactive of what’s happening around us. ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ is not about a new language or philosophy, it’s about a new concept in the creation of our cars.”
Under the bonnet, the i20 is available with 48-volt mild-hybrid technology for the first time, offering a 3-4% increase in fuel efficiency. This technology is available with the 1.0-litre T-GDi engine with 100 or 120 PS, plus Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT), which allows the car to ‘coast’ when the driver releases the accelerator pedal, therefore saving fuel.
The all-new Hyundai i20 features a sleek interior design, including a high dashboard and built-in ambient lighting, giving the cockpit an airy feeling. Earlier in the year, Hyundai released new interior pictures and a new product walkaround video, where Raf Van Nuffel, Head of Product Marketing & Pricing, highlighted the all-new i20’s main features.

The i20 cabin features two wide screens: a 10.25-inch digital cluster and a 10.25-inch centre touchscreen. High-end connectivity and audio features are available, including a wireless charging pad and a Bose Premium audio system with eight speakers. There’s also a new Lime Green interior trim option, to complement the existing Black Mono and Black & Grey colours.
The all-new i20 also comes with a range of new SmartSense active safety features, meaning it has one of the most comprehensive safety packages in its segment. The new features include navigation-based Smart Cruise Control and Intelligent Speed Limit Assist.
