Scoop: Hyundai Sharpens Up All-New i20 Supermini

Since Hyundai skipped the Geneva Salon in March for the presentation of the i10, it’s possible that the Koreans will reveal their city car in Frankfurt this September. However,  it’s not the only small car Hyundai is preparing, as next in line is the successor to the i20 sub-compact hatch that has been among us for five years in its current form, having received a facelift in early 2012.

Hyundai has done its best to hide the new i20’s styling features on this prototype, but it’s evident that the Korean designers are slowly abandoning curves in favor of sharper lines for their cars.

The five-door model we caught on the road outside the company’s technical center in Germany appears to be slightly longer as well as a tad sportier looking than the current i20. Very few other details are known about the car at this time, but it is believed that it rides on a newer platform with power coming from a familiar line of gasoline and diesel engine.

The next i20 is due in showrooms towards the end of 2014 or early 2015, depending on the market.
