AUTO CENTRAL, EUROPE -- August 1, 2014: Inspired by ‘Fluidic Sculpture 2.0’ design philosophy Styled at Hyundai Motor’s Design Centre Europe Packaging and dimensions create generous proportions High Wycombe, 1 August- Hyundai Motor has revealed design renderings of the New Generation i20.

The new version of Hyundai’s popular B-segment model features the brand’s ‘Fluidic Sculpture 2.0’ design philosophy, in a sophisticated and distinctive design.

The long hood and generous shape create a powerful stance for New Generation i20. The body sides are sculpted yet the overall architecture is clear and simple, with the cabin sitting cleanly on the body. In profile, the dark treatment of the C-pillar visually accentuates the car’s length.

The front presents a bold new interpretation of the well-established Hyundai hexagonal grille and a new thin horizontal strip connecting the headlamps. At the back, the wrap-around rear window and unique treatment for the lamp clusters combine with the car’s hatchback proportions to create a distinctive design.

The New Generation i20 was designed at Hyundai Motor’s Design Centre Europe in Rüsselsheim, Germany.

More details about New Generation i20 will be released ahead of its world premiere at the Mondial de l'Automobile 2014 in Paris in October.
