. The brand has just revealed the first images of the new model.

Since it was launched in 2008, Hyundai sold nearly 1 million units of the i20 in Europe which gives it a strong position in the B segment of the European market and one of the best selling models of the brand in the old continent.

For the new generation Hyundai outlined as goals to increase its audience, develop the perception of the brand and confirm Hyundai's position as an European manufacturer.

Thus Hyundai chose to completely design and develop the new i20 in Europe. The Korean brand focused on three key points to satisfy European consumers: the interior space, enhanced level of comfort features and technology as well as a distinctive and refined design.

is based on a new platform with a 2570mm wheelbase, 45mm longer than the previous model. With an increased interior space, Hyundai managed to comfortably accommodate five adults. The load capacity presented by the new i20 is leader in the segment with 326 liters with rear seats unfolded.

A panoramic roof improves the comfort and the sense of space for the driver and passengers. Other features that add to the refinement of the new generation include integrated rear view camera and front and rear LED lighting.

As the latest models from Hyundai, the design of the new i20 is based on the "Fluidic Sculpture 2.0"  philosophy of the brand. The European design team created a Hyundai vehicle with a bold front, with a hexagonal grille and a chrome frame that was lowered for design and engineering reasons. The front also has a thin grid that connects the headlights and also a lower grille that houses the fog lamps. The rear of the new i20 includes a glossy black C-pillar that gives the feeling of floating roof.

The premiere is scheduled for October, but until then more details about the new Hyundai i20 should be unveiled.
