A new set of images of the next-generation Hyundai i20 hatchback have surfaced online, revealing LED tail lamps in detail ahead of its launch. It gives us a clear view of the rear profile of the car showing sharp-looking wraparound LED taillamps and a sporty rear bumper. Also, the registration plate housing seems to be shifted down to the rear bumper. The test mule can be seen draped in camouflage, serving its purpose to conceal the details. Though the car is covered in heavy camouflage, it is safe to assume that the car is almost production-ready.
The new spy pictures of the Hyundai i20 gives us a glimpse of the new LED taillamps
Hyundai has been extensively testing the third generation i20 car for quite some time now. We have already seen several spy shots of the premium hatchback while testing on Indian roads. The car is expected to sport new design language, which will be in-line with the global-spec Hyundai i20. The hatchback is likely to feature a bolder all-black cascading grille with LED headlamps and LED tail lamps, sportier bumpers, fog lamps and more.
We exclusively told you that the upcoming i20 will be Hyundai's sixth connected car with BlueLink technology in India. The premium offering from the South Korean automaker will come with more premium and futuristic cabin loaded with a new infotainment system, which could be a 10.25-inch stick-out display straight away lifted from the Venue subcompact SUV. It will also get a flat-bottom steering wheel, premium upholstery, automatic climate control, rear AC vents and improved safety features, etc.
Mechanically, the car is expected to come with a choice of petrol and diesel powertrains. It will comprise the 1.2-litre petrol, the 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol and the 1.5-litre diesel engines. Transmission options will include both manual and automatic units. When launched, the next-generation i20 will take on the rivals such as Tata Altroz, Toyota Glanza, Honda Jazz and the Maruti Suzuki Baleno.
