Three-door model to join New Generation i20 family Sketch reveals clear differentiation in design Designed, engineered and built in Europe alongside five-door model

HIGH WYCOMBE,UK -- September 3, 2014: 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 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 Rüsselsheim, Germany.
