- New Hyundai i20 Active’s rugged crossover design enhances appeal and increases versatility
- Over half of exterior parts differ from standard i20 model
- Higher seating position adds to comfort and aids visibility
- The distinctive and rugged crossover design of the i20 Active sets it apart from conventional B-segment models.
While the new car is based on the i20 five-door – sharing its expansive space, comfort and quality – over 50% of the exterior parts are unique to this model.
To give the i20 Active a characteristic crossover stance, revised suspension settings elevate the body of the i20 Active by 20 mm compared to the i20 five-door. The seating position is also raised, placing the driver higher within the car. The result makes ingress and egress more comfortable, as well as offering superior visibility while driving.
Underlining the i20 Active’s adventurous appeal are the unique front and rear bumpers with integrated skid plates, which offer additional protection when driving away from public roads. Round fog lamps are integrated at the front and rear, with an exclusive rear spoiler adding to the i20 Active’s appeal.
The rugged appearance is further enhanced by bold side skirts and side cladding, to complement the robust wheel-arch mouldings. Moving to the top of the car, a set of silver roof rails complement the crossover’s stance, adding essential practicality.
Other details that set i20 Active apart from its siblings include a reverse treatment of the signature Hyundai hexagonal grille in high-gloss black with chrome surroundings, a fuel cap cover in silver finish and newly designed 17-inch wheels.
The interior benefits from the superior space, comfort and quality of the i20 five-door, with greater ergonomics from the heightened driving position and further design enhancements. Unique metal pedals present a robust and high quality appearance, while Tangerine Orange interior colour applications expand the personalisation options. Also exclusive to the i20 Active is the Morning Blue exterior colour, a distinctive option for those wanting a bespoke finish.
The New i20 Active’s rugged design and crossover features target young urban customers with active lifestyles. The higher stance and the bespoke design enhancements express the car’s adventurous spirit without compromising the spaciousness and comfort of the i20 5-door version.Raf Van NuffelHead of Product Management at Hyundai Motor Europe
