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.
