Hyundai Motor has finally revealed the design sketch of the new i20. Christened as the Elite i20, the car features the company’s Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design philosophy and has been designed at Hyundai Motor’s design centre in Russelsheim Germany. The car will be launched on August 11 and Hyundai is accepting pre-bookings from today.
The long hood and generous shape create a powerful stance for the Elite 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 a new thin horizontal strip connects the headlamps. At the back, the wrap-around rear window and unique treatment for the lamp clusters merge with the car’s hatchback proportions to create a distinctive design.
The Elite i20 will be sold alongside the current i20 – the same strategy has been applied for the Grand i10. We have some spy images of the premium hatchback, which also include few details of the interiors. Stay tuned as we get more details of the car, later in the day.
