UNDER THE SKIN
What is it? Hyundai i20 Why the fuss? Big selling small car
When’s it here? Late 2104 How much? Less than $15,000 The coming i20 is much more than just the latest successor to the Excel. The new compact promises more comfort and refinement, the right sort of value, and the halo effect of a competition campaign in the World Rally Championship next year. The new i20 is expected around the middle of 2014 and this Carparazzi picture shows extra length and refinement in the bodywork, as well as smart touches including turn signals in the mirrors, a bigger grille and a rear spoiler. Full details should emerge in March at the Geneva motor show before local sales towards the end of the year.
