Hyundai Motor has revealed a first impression of the New Generation i20 Coupe, indicating how the company’s model-range will grow beyond the recently revealed five-door version. The current five-door i20 has already been launched in India as Elite i20, replacing the previous-generation i20. This is Hyundai’s response to the growing competition in the premium hatchback market in India, and also in Europe.
The new model promises to combine driving fun, a distinctive character and sporty refinement, with the enhanced practicality and quality already previewed in its five-door sibling.
The New Generation i20 Coupe features a more sharply raked roofline and a distinctive roof spoiler, enhancing its sporty exterior. In keeping with the New Generation i20 family, the Coupe’s long hood and generous proportions create a powerful stance, while the overall architecture maintains a clear and simple design. Meanwhile, at the back, the wrap-around rear window and unique treatment for the lamp clusters communicate the model’s sophisticated design.
Like the five-door version, New Generation i20 Coupe was designed and developed at Hyundai Motor’s Design Centre Europe in Russelsheim, Germany. The upcoming Paris Motor Show will bear the answers for this new coupe from Hyundai. The Korean automaker has aggressive with its products be the design or even the features it comes loaded with. The i20 gets the Fluidic Design 2.0, which is the new iteration of this design language, which revolutionized Hyundai’s design philosophy.
Further details about New Generation i20 Coupe will be announced in due course. We aren’t sure of the fact if this will make it to India anytime soon, but it could be an option Hyundai could try and experiment with our market and introduce a sporty version of a two-door hot hatchback. The reveal of the Coupe will happen at the Paris Motor Show.
