All three body types of the i20, the five-door, i20 Active and the three-door coupe are continued and will be launched in Europe from June 2018. In order to meet customers’ expectations, the i20 five-door and Active feature a refreshed, seductive design and updated safety features with Hyundai SmartSense. For the entire i20 line-up, Hyundai is also introducing a 7-speed dual clutch transmission (7DCT) for enhanced driving comfort and an Idle Stop and Go (ISG) system as standard for all powertrains to reduce CO2 emissions.

The i20 is one of our DNA models and has continuously been one of our best-selling cars in Europe for a decade. This top performer fulfils the highest customer demands on technology, efficiency and practicality and is building a strong foundation for the brand’s success in Europe. By giving the i20 an update in design, safety and connectivity as well as a revised powertrain line-up, we aim to stay among the best in class and continue the success of this model.

Since the launch of the second generation in 2014, the i20 has continuously increased sales volume year by year. 2017 was the first year in which Hyundai sold more than 100.000 units of the i20 in one single year in Europe. And by the end of May 2018, more than 760.000 units had been sold since the model’s first generation. The sales figures show that customers in Europe value the car’s overall package. To meet the requirements of European customers, the Hyundai i20 is designed, engineered and made in Europe for Europe. It represents the essence of the Hyundai brand: quality, reliability and functionality combined with a modern design, offering customers accessible cars for everyday use.

Youthful character and seductive looks for Hyundai’s number two best-selling car

The New i20 combines seductive looks and youthful exterior design with a spacious and comfortable interior. The refreshed front features a wide and expressive Cascading Grille – the family identity uniting all Hyundai models. With the new two-tone roof in Phantom Black creating a total of 17 colour combinations, customers can personalise their car. In addition, newly designed 15- and 16-inch alloy wheels complete the New i20’s sleek and modern exterior appearance.

In the interior Hyundai offers outstanding roominess for passengers and an uncompromised trunk capacity of 326 litres (VDA). The new Red Point, Blue Point and Velvet Blue interior colours reflect the youthful character of the New i20 with fresh colour accents.

Upgraded powertrains for higher efficiency

The New i20 features three efficient petrol engines. They all comply with the new Euro 6d Temp regulations and are equipped with Idle Stop and Go (ISG) as standard to reduce CO2 emissions and improve fuel consumption.

The 1.0-litre T-GDI engine is available with 88.3 kW/120 PS or with an output of 73.6 kW/100 PS. With this engine, Hyundai introduces its in-house developed seven-speed dual clutch transmission to the B-segment.

The 1.2-litre engine offers 55.2 kW/75 PS available with the five-door or 61.8kW/84 PS available with the five-door and the three-door Coupe.

The third powertrain is a 1.4-litre petrol engine exclusively available for the i20 Active. It generates 73.6kW/100PS.

Hyundai introduces SmartSense to the i20

The new Hyundai SmartSense active safety package is enhanced with new features, including Hyundai’s Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) and the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) for city and inter-urban traffic to avoid accidents. Hyundai’s Driver Attention Warning (DAW), a further SmartSense safety application, monitors driving patterns in order to detect reckless or fatigued driving. To complete the SmartSense package, Hyundai included the High Beam Assist (HBA) automatically switches from high-beam to low-beam in case of oncoming traffic.

Broad range of connectivity options

The New i20 offers a comprehensive choice of connectivity features catering for different customer requirements by offering four different audio systems. The basic version includes a 3.8-inch screen. Customers can alternatively choose a new 5-inch monochrome screen. The 7-inch colour Display Audio offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing customers to display smartphone content including navigation app on the car’s screen. For up-to-date connectivity requirements, the optional new 7-inch colour navigation system integrates media and connectivity features and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

To further demonstrate the quality and reliability of the i20, all three variants are available in Europe with a unique five-year, fully-transferable, unlimited mileage warranty.
