To debut at the 2015 Paris Motor Show

Hyundai has recently unveiled the 2015 i20 ahead of its world debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show in October.

A couple of weeks ago, the Korean automaker revealed the official rendering of the 2015 i20 that incorporates Hyundai’s “Fluidic Sculpture 2.0” design concept that consists of three elements: fluid aesthetics, the modern appeal and premium interiors.

The car utilizes a new platform and now measures 4035mm in length with a 2570mm wheelbase, 45mm longer than the previous model. The front fascia has a lowered chrome-faced hexagonal grille that’s been split into two parts. A thin, upper horizontal grille joins the two HID headlamps, LED daytime running lights and LED positioning lamps while the lower grille comprises the fog lamps.

At the rear, the C-pillar features a high-gloss black finish, giving the effect of a floating roofline. The rear light cluster has a “boomerang shaped” LED design that wraps around the rear wing of the car.

Inside, the 2015 i20 has a new panoramic sunroof that can be tilted or be fully opened. The front and rear legroom has a combined length of 1892mm, the best in its class according to Hyundai. It also features a 326-liter trunk space when the seats are upright. Further additions to the car will include an integrated rearview camera.

However, Hyundai has not yet released the powertrain details of the 2015 i20.
