Hyundai Motor hints at the style of All-New “The Elite i20”1

 Inspired by ‘Fluidic Sculpture 2.0’ design philosophy
• Styled at Hyundai Motor’s Design Centre Europe
• Generous proportions created by its packaging and dimensions

August 1, 2014, New Delhi - Hyundai Motor has revealed design renderings of All-New “The Elite i20”, which was designed at Hyundai Motor’s Design Centre Europe in Rüsselsheim, Germany.

The new version of Hyundai’s popular B-segment model features the brand’s ‘Fluidic Sculpture 2.0’ design philosophy, in a sophisticated and distinctive design.

The long hood and generous shape create a powerful stance for the All-New i20. The body sides are sculpted yet the overall architecture is clear and simple, with the cabin sitting cleanly on the body. In profile, the dark treatment of the C-pillar visually accentuates the car’s length.

The front presents a bold new interpretation of the well-established Hyundai hexagonal grille and a new thin horizontal strip connecting the headlamps. At the back, the wrap-around rear window and unique treatment for the lamp clusters combine with the car’s hatchback proportions to create a distinctive design.

Pre bookings for “The Elite i20” will commence from August 01, 2014 in India.
