Hyundai i20 to get 3-cylinder diesel option

RÜSSELSHEIM (Germany): Hyundai has released the first image of the latest i20, which features refreshed styling, enhanced equipment and arguably the lowest CO2 emissions of any conventional powertrain car on sale today.

Among the four powertrain options available to customers will be the new 1.1-litre, 3-cylinder ‘U-II’ diesel engine that generates 75hp.

When mated to Hyundai’s Blue Drive technologies, this derivative emits just 84 g/km of CO2 - a figure lower than any other car with a conventional powertrain.

The engine was developed at Hyundai’s European R&D set-up here. It will be offered alongside another sub-100 g/km diesel.  When combined with Blue Drive technologies, the upgraded 1.4-litre ‘U-II’ 90hp engine emits 96 g/km.

The debut of the new i20 sees the introduction of fluidic sculpture form language to Hyundai’s supermini. 

The revised exterior design carries the hallmarks of Hyundai styling, including the company’s signature hexagonal grille and new headlamp units. 

Updating their own design from the original i20, the stylists at Hyundai’s European design studio have further modernised the i20 with a more contemporary profile for the front and rear bumpers, a new sculpted bonnet and new wheel designs.

The width (1710 mm), height (1490 mm) and wheelbase (2525 mm) of the i20 remain the same but the length has increased by 55 mm (front 30 mm, rear 25 mm) over its predecessor to 3995 mm.

The car, which will make a world premiere at the Geneva motor show, is backed by a five-year warranty in Europe.
