Emotional Sportiness: Hyundai's new inspiring exterior design language.
The new i20 is Hyundai's first car in Europe to use the “Emotional Sportiness” design language. Starting this design philosophy with the Sonata model, Hyundai characterizes the design with the harmony between the four basic elements. Collecting oran, architecture, style and technology in one place, Hyundai wants to create emotional value and give its models a different look if we give priority. Compared to its predecessor, the car, which has been made more dynamic, is also equipped with more practical comfort items. Hyundai engineers, who pay more attention to visuality, have also developed the car, which they have increased by 30 mm in width and 5 mm in length. In addition, the wheelbase has been increased by 10 mm compared to the previous model. The new i20 has a very sporty structure with its 24 mm lowered roof.
The different character of the new i20 than its competitors stems from its dynamic-looking front and rear bumpers. In addition to these sporty bumpers, the design philosophy is emphasized with the new radiator grille, while the side view is formed with a bolder line. The lines, reinforced by the unique C-column design, offer a boomerang-like style. In addition, the sideline extending back emphasizes the vehicle's width and stance. With these external features, the New i20 reveals its modernity while at the same time giving its users a premium feel.
The Hyundai i20 will feature 10 different body colors with the newly added Blue, Flame Red, Turquoise, Sandy Gray and Mika Black. In addition, the new i20 also offers an optional black roof color for further customization.
A brand new high quality interior
Developed with various equipment, the new i20 offers a different look by offering innovative and technological solutions in the interior. While the interior looks much more attractive than the model it replaces, a spacious and spacious feeling is felt in the cockpit. The car, which stands out with its uninterrupted dashboard and door trims in terms of design, is beginning to show its difference with its more prominent dashboard. The door trims of the new i20 are designed with inspiration from the shapes found in nature. In addition, thanks to the LED ambiance light, an aesthetic interior lighting is obtained especially at night. In addition; Black Mono, Black & Gray and Yellow Green interior trim colors can also be preferred.
Now it is much more comfortable and technological
The dynamic ratios of the new i20 offer greater comfort and extended wheelbase than the previous generation. This means more seating for rear passengers. Trunk volume is increased by 25 liters, reaching a total of 351 liters.
Served wirelessly, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto work in harmony with iOS and Android smartphones.

USB port is installed to charge the technological devices. The Bose audio system is included for more in-car multimedia enjoyment. Eight speakers in the cabin, including the subwoofer, offer high-quality music.
Efficient engines and effective performance
Hyundai offers three transmission options along with two engines. The most remarkable engine option of the model is the 1.0-liter T-GDi unit. This engine has two different power outputs of 100 and 120 horsepower. In addition, Hyundai features the 20-volt semi-hybrid powertrain for the first time on the i48. Thanks to this new system, 3 to 4 percent fuel consumption and emission reductions are also achieved.
Combined with a seven-speed DCT and a newly developed 6-speed manual (iMT) transmission, the 48-volt semi-hybrid also contributes to performance during acceleration.
Apart from this engine, there is also a 1.2-liter MPi, 4-cylinder petrol unit. Available with a five-speed gearbox, this engine produces 84 horsepower. Compared to its predecessor, the Hyundai i4, which has been reduced by 20 percent, achieves a more economical fuel consumption without sacrificing driving pleasure.
