- Hyundai Motor has introduced the New Generation i20 Coupe, expanding the product range with distinctive sporty and dynamic design.

For the first time, Hyundai has created a three-door B-segment car that is significantly differentiated from the five-door model. Its dynamic exterior and striking interior design are intended to attract young, lifestyle-oriented consumers, further enhancing the appeal of the New Generation i20.


  • Unique silhouette of New Generation i20 Coupe with differentiated A-, B- and C-Pillar
  • Reverse hexagonal grille emphasises dynamic character
  • New rear design creates unique athletic presence

New Generation i20 Coupe offers a unique silhouette in the B-segment. The A-, B-, and C-pillars differ between three- and five-door models, each is more raked providing the Coupe with its own dynamic profile thanks to a stylish sloping roofline, 25  mm lower than its five-door sibling. Interpreting the New Generation i20’s distinctive floating roofline, the Coupe features a slim black C-pillar application that further emphasises its unique rear design.

New Generation i20 Coupe has been styled with an reverse  hexagonal front grille, redesigned frontbumpers, matching new side sill mouldings and a sporty rear spoiler. A muscular character line dominates the rear of New Generation i20 Coupe leading into the a new rear bumper design and creating an athletic presence on the road.

The front of the New Generation i20 Coupe features a reverse hexagonal grille that, framed by iconic side bumper features, lowers the visual stance and emphasizes its road-hugging character. We gave the car a sleeker looking side profile and a more appearance, while retaining generous space of rear passengers. The strong feature over the rear wheels emphasizes the shoulders and directs the attention to the striking horizontal rear lights. Together they underline the sport-oriented image of the car.

The sophisticated relationship between design and functionality continues around to the rear with new tail lamps. 17-inch alloy wheels are unique to the Coupe model, enhancing its sporty character. The stylish touches also include unique Tangerine Orange exterior paintwork carried through to a matching fashionable orange interior trim with orange decals found exclusively in the Coupe interior.

Comfort and convenience

  • Outstanding quality of five-door model carried across without compromise
  • Best-in-class boot capacity - 336 litres
  • Easy-entry front seats with memory function offer high comfort and convenience for all occupants

The New Generation i20 Coupe offers exclusive features, enhancing its appeal as a stylish package that provides interior comfort and all-round quality. An extended sunroof opens up the interior to natural light, enhancing the sense of relaxation and well-being created through an ergonomic driver-orientated interior design.

With a new rear end design, Coupe increases the already outstanding boot capacity of the 5-door model by 10-litres to class-leading 336-litres. Easy entry front seats, with a memory function, offer class-leading comfort and ease-of-use for occupants, while low levels of NVH mean New Generation i20 Coupe is a pleasant place to be.

In addition, New Generation i20 Coupe carries the same range of extensive comfort and safety features as seen on the five-door version. Depending on model and market specification, New Generation i20 can be equipped with features including a heated steering wheel, automatic-windscreen-defog and the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), while retaining the five-door’s excellent leg, head and shoulder room.

Engines and transmissions

  • Addition of new 1.0-litre T-GDI engine to the range

New Generation i20 Coupe has an engine line-up tuned and optimised for day-to-day driving.
