At the time, 2018-2019 Hyundai i20 first generation has become a model of how to make quality and affordable car. After its release, the model has gained significant popularity. Largely thanks to attractive appearance, good performance and, of course, cost.
It goes without saying that the four years since the release of the first generation – the period of the solid. Because the company 2018-2019 Hyundai did not even do a restyling and has prepared a new, second generation of its successful hatchback year . Expectations on his assigned weight, and therefore wonder whether they will be able to justify the car.
Since the hatchback is largely focused on European buyers who fall in love in recent years, compact cars, namely the presentation held at the Paris International Motor Show. Immediately after the presentation will begin series production model. By the way, it has been established to build on the capacities of 2018-2019 Hyundai plant located in the town of Izmit in Turkey. So even supplies to Europe will be convenient and fast.
Even despite the fact that officially the new 2018-2019 Hyundai i20 2016 in Russia is not going to sell, how to sell and not the previous generation hatchback, the novelty is still a serious concern.
Let us try in our today’s review to find out whether the second generation will be able to surpass the first thing new was better than its predecessor, and it worth all the company from Korea to produce the next generation, but not be limited to restyling.
The car can not be called perfect in terms of design. And what he did, the perfect design ?! 2018-2019 Hyundai ay20 turned out beautiful, stylish, original, and modern, supplemented by gambling and sporting appearance. Is not that what customers want, choosing a car ?!
The front part is decorated with large, stylish triangular headlights, made on the basis of a powerful combination of headlights and driving lights and daytime running lights of the LEDs. In the center to place a small slit under the false radiator grille. Interesting bumper is supplemented on the sides the fog lamps, executed in a very original form. By the way, if he had not established a bumper of a compact hatchback, but from a certain sports car. But it plays into the hands of the exterior of 2018-2019 Hyundai i20.
Side of the car shows its restraint, brevity and practicality. Large doors with large openings for access to the interior, flat roof, high sills, wheel arches delicate lines, rather small rear.
As for the rear view, it is decorated with stylish optics with LED filling and even feature 3D effects. The tailgate is large enough, and the glass on her small, decorated with a solid spoiler with stop lamp inside. The rear diffuser and fog lights complement a magnificent image of the new generation of Korean hatchback.
If we talk about the dimensions of new items, somewhere, the car put millimeters, somewhere smaller. Let’s try to figure it out:
- length – 4035 mm
- width – 1734 mm
- height – 1474 mm
- wheelbase – 2570 mm
- ground clearance (clearance) – 150 millimeters.
That is to say that, compared with the previous generation, the new 2018-2019 Hyundai ay20 added 40 millimeters and 24 millimeters in length and width, respectively, and increased its wheelbase by 45 millimeters. And where the car lost, so it is in height. The first generation of 2018-2019 Hyundai i20 was higher by 16 millimeters.
Several strange that the car does not want to deliver to Russia. In terms of adaptation to our even the most severe conditions hatchback a very solid level. After the production of the body it was tested at extreme temperatures from minus 35 to plus 40 degrees Celsius, and ran in a novelty at a height of two and a half thousand kilometers above sea level.
The car interior is, of course, pleases. For a bright and attractive appearance of the body is hidden not less interesting interior.
It is made stylish, modern and high quality. Convenient function instrument panel with color-board computer on the 3.5 inches between two large radii tachometer and speedometer, a special dock on the top of the instrument panel, designed for installation of the driver’s smartphone. And already available in the database.
The center console can be placed on the base itself or the radio, or a full-fledged media center, as well as the climate control unit, which may be different.
Pleasantly pleased the quality of materials used. Despite the abundance of plastic, it is soft, high-quality, pleasant to the touch. Also in the lounge there is fabric, leather, carpet. These claims are absolutely no no.
Interior is made on the principle of a light top and dark bottom. And when choosing a fabric interior, you can choose one of four colors – cappuccino, beige, gray and gray-blue. If the interior is leather, then it provided a black color and stylish line in the selected tone.
Rudder anatomically correct, comfortable sits in his hands. Landing in the chair and does not cause problems. The front seats have a significant and effective lateral support, anatomical design, suitable for people of almost any height and build.
And front and rear space is enough. In particular, if we take into account the fact that no large sedan in front of us, but only a compact hatchback.
If we talk about the trunk, its volume in the normal position of 326 liters. If necessary, you can lower the rear seats and get 1042 liters of space. Tailgate opening provides a pretty good sized 1027 mm in width.
While we can not say on what configuration options split the 2018-2019 Hyundai i20 manufacturer, and some equipment for the market of a country will be provided. Yet some of the details in this regard are known.

It is expected that the price of the second generation of such 2018-2019 Hyundai i20 will be as attractive as in the case with the first generation. Of course, we expect that the new product will be available the same as the first generation 2018-2019 Hyundai ay20 now, hardly worth it.
Given the amount of modern equipment receives the machine, increasing the price of 10-20 percent can occur. Soon manufacturer announced the official price of its compact hatchback for the European market. After all, the first of November to start selling. So to delay the matter of the company is not profitable.
