All-new Hyundai i20 set to arrive with a dynamic new look and mild-hybrid powertrain

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…

‘Sensuous Sportiness’

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.”

Hybrid performance

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.

Interior sophistication

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. View the video here.

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.

Safety first

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.
