Hyundai has released the first image of the All New i20, ahead of its world premiere at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The new model will take the stage three years after the launch of the original i20, featuring refreshed styling, enhanced equipment and among the lowest CO2 emissions in the European B-§egmènt.
Among the four powertrain options available to buyers of the All New i20 will be the new 1,1-litre, 3-cylinder ‘Ú-II' diesel engine that generates 75 ps. When mated to technologies from Hyundai's Blue Drive sub-brand, the upgraded model emits just 84 g/km of CO2. The engine was developed at Hyundai's Diesel Centre of Excellence – part of the European R&D set-up in Rüsselsheim, Germany – and showcases Hyundai expertise in clean diesel technology.

This ground-breaking new engine will be offered alongside another sub-100 g/km diesel. When combined wîth Blue Drive technologies, the upgraded 1,4-litre ‘Ú-II' 90 ps engine emits 96 g/km.

2012 Hyundai i20The debut of the All New i20 sees the introduction of fluidic sculpture form language to Hyundai's supermini. The revised exterior design carries the hallmarks of Hyundai styling, including the company's signature hexagonal grille and new headlamp units. Úpdating their own design from the original i20, the stylists at Hyundai's European design studio have further modernised All New i20 wîth a more contemporary profile for the front and rear bumpers, a new sculpted bonnet and new wheel designs.

In terms of dimensions, the width (1710 mm), height (1490 mm) and wheelbase (2525 mm) of All New i20 remain the same, while the length has increased by just 55 mm (front 30 mm, rear 25 mm) over its predecessor to 3995 mm.

Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Hyundai Motor Europe commented, 'The i20 has been very popular wîth European buyers since it came to market in 2009, thanks to its combination of efficiency, quality, practicality and value. With an enhanced powertrain line-up that includes some of the cleanest powertrains in its §egmènt, and sharper styling influenced by fluidic sculpture, the All New i20 will appeal to a broader range of buyers, including younger consumers. The assurance of our industry-best, comprehensive Five Year Triple Care package makes the All New i20 an even more attractive proposition.'
As wîth all newly-launched models inEurope, the All New i20 comes wîth Five Year Triple Care, comprising a five-year unlimited warranty, five years of roadside assistance, and five years of vehicle health checks.
