Hyundai Motor describes new i20 model
The Korean automaker Hyundai Motor has unveiled the first design pictures of the upcoming new i20 model. According to the company the new version of Hyundai's popular B-segment model comes with the brand's "Fluidic Sculpture 2.0" design philosophy and sports a sophisticated and distinctive design.
The long hood and generous shape create a powerful stance for New Generation i20. The body sides are sculpted yet the overall architecture is clear and simple, with the cabin sitting cleanly on the body. In profile, the dark treatment of the C-pillar visually accentuates the car's length.
The front presents a bold new interpretation of the well-established Hyundai hexagonal grille and there's a new thin horizontal strip that connects the headlamps. At the back, the wrap-around rear window and unique treatment for the lamp clusters combine with the car's hatchback proportions to create a distinctive design.
The new i20 has been designed at the Hyundai design center, located in Rüsselsheim, Germany. The car will debut at the 2014 Mondial de l'Automobile, which will be held in October 2014 in Paris, France.
