Hyundai has unveiled the latest-generation Hyundai i20 coupe. This is Hyundai’s first-ever three-door B-segment car remarkably differentiated from the five-door model. The car’s A-, B-, and C-pillars are significantly different from the five-door model. The coupe model has a unique Tangerine Orange exterior colour to differentiate itself from the hatchback. New 17-inch alloy wheel design and new rear spoiler add to the sportier appearance of the coupe.

DIFFERENTIATED BY DESIGN: HYUNDAI MOTOR INTRODUCES NEW GENERATION i20 COUPE – Press Release

  • Hyundai Motor reveals New Generation i20 Coupe
  • Clear design differentiation for unique three-door
  • Extends the appeal of New Generation i20 to younger customers

High Wycombe, 10 December 2014 – Hyundai Motor has today unveiled the New Generation i20 Coupe. For the first time, Hyundai has created a three-door B-segment car that is significantly differentiated from the five-door model. Its dynamic exterior and striking interior design are intended to attract young, lifestyle-oriented consumers, extending the appeal of the New Generation i20.

New Generation i20 Coupe has its own unique silhouette. The raked A-, B-, and C-pillars are markedly different from the five-door model, providing the Coupe with a more dynamic profile.

At the front, New Generation i20 Coupe takes a different approach to Hyundai Motor’s characteristic grille design. The striking reverse hexagonal front grille sits in a new front bumper. Bold wheel arches –which dominate the rear quarter of the Coupe – lead into a new rear bumper design which creates an athletic presence. Despite its sportier appearance, the Coupe is still a practical car: the 336-litre boot space is best-in-class.

To further differentiate the three-door model, Hyundai has introduced a unique Tangerine Orange exterior colour and a matching orange interior colour option for the Coupe (in addition to the existing New Generation i20 colour palette). It also features a new 17-inch alloy wheel design and new rear spoiler, among other aesthetic enhancements.

The choice of Euro6 engines includes petrol and diesel power units from 84 PS to 100 PS. A new 1.4-litre ‘Kappa’ petrol engine will be available from launch, with a new 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine joining the range later in 2015.

Designed and engineered in Europe, New Generation i20 Coupe has been developed to meet the needs of discerning European customers. Production of the New Generation i20 family, including the Coupe, takes place at the company’s product plant in Izmit, Turkey.
