The Hyundai i20 is one of the firm’s most popular models and the supermini has a lot riding on it.

The new i20 will be officially launched at the Paris Motor Show in October, and the company must have high hopes after racking up more than one million sales of the model in Europe.

The Hyundai i20 was first launched in 2002, and the new car has been developed and designed in Europe to be another sales success.

Technology and space in the Hyundai i20

Company chiefs say the i20 has lots of high-tech on board and improved comfort levels.

The interior, says, Hyundai is ‘class-leading’.

Among the features potential buyers can look forward to include a panoramic glass sunroof – a first in its class – an integrated rear-view camera and LED lights.

However, one of the main aims for the revamp and big push for sales is to expose the Hyundai brand to a wider buying audience and underline its European credentials.

The new Hyundai i20 will impress

Indeed, the Hyundai i20 will have one of the largest cabins in its class thanks to the all-new platform which is slightly longer than the previous model.

Five adults should find plenty of space on board in should be an impressive car.

The Hyundai i20 is competing in a tough segment against some very good cars, such as the VW Polo and the impressive Ford Fiesta, but there’s enough here to attract potential buyers.

Get this car on personal contract hire

Firstly, the Hyundai i20 will be competitively priced and it will be packed with kit to help set it apart from its rivals.

So while Hyundai’s other cars, the incredible i10 city car and their crossover vehicles, get lots of attention the i20 has languished behind recently.

The new model should do a lot to redress that balance and with the high build quality and strong warranty on offer, expect a lot of Hyundai i20s to appear on our roads from early next year.

More details of the specification and prices will be announced shortly.
