The updated Hyundai i20 revealed

Hyundai has released the first images of the updated Hyundai i20, in time for the world premiere at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show this week.

The updated model features refreshed styling and enhanced equipment such as a redesigned centre console and a new 6 speed manual transmission.

The debut of the updated i20 sees the introduction of Hyundai’s fluidic sculpture form language. The revised exterior design carries the hallmarks of Hyundai styling, including the company’s signature hexagonal grille and new headlight units. Updating their own design from the original i20, the stylists at Hyundai’s European design studio have further modernised the i20 with 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 updated i20 remain the same, while the length has increased by 55 mm (front 30 mm, rear 25 mm) over its predecessor to 3995 mm.

The updated Hyundai i20 is expected to arrive in New Zealand showrooms mid-2012.
