Hyundai i20 has not been revised for a while and in August when the 2012 model was spied in Europe, created a considerable stir. Recently the car has been spotted once again on Chennai roads under partial camouflage.
The spotted test mule was under camouflage at the front and rear while one the sides it was all naked. This model bears the same wheel caps and side profile as of the European model. A thorough revision on the front and rear is expected with this facelift model but on the technical front nothing seems to be coming along.

According to our analysis the new i20 has a front fascia resembling to that of Hyundai Verna Fluidic. Hyundai is revising all of its models with its latest fluidic design sculpture and we are sure the i20 will not go untouched as well. But this revision will be majorly done on the front of the car while the sides and rear will not get drastic changes.

In all hope the car should look like the one in the picture above which is Hyundai ix20. The side body lines as well as the wheel arches will be carried over from the ongoing model. Under the hood there will be no new engines and the current 1.2 & 1.4 MPFI petrol and 1.4 CRDI diesel units will power the car.
Since long the facelift was expected not because of the changing tastes but because other manufactures are also planning upgraded models. At present Volkswagen is considering Volkswagen Polo 1.6 diesel, Fiat Linea and Fiat Grande Punto facelift models are scheduled for 3rd January and Chevrolet Sail is being tested by General Motors. There are enough reasons to hint that the right time has come for Hyundai to introduce the all new i20 and we hope a nice refreshment comes our way.
