Everyone knows how serious Hyundai is about its new Fluidic design language, with even its cheapest and smallest car the Eon getting the design language. Now only two vehicles from Hyundai’s stable are left without the Fluidic touch. One is the Santa Fe, which has been spied internationally with camouflage, hiding its new sharp look. The other vehicle is the Hyundai i20, which is all set to flaunt its Fluidic sculpture in early 2012. Spied around Chennai by Vikram Viswanathan (an IndianAutosBlog reader), the new i20 has heavy camouflage but the new headlights are quite visible. The rear too sees some minor design tweaks but the overall structure of the Hyundai i20 remains unchanged.
Hyundai might showcase the 2012 i20 Facelift at the upcoming Auto Expo. There is little doubt that the Korean automaker will revise prices upwards next year and the facelift to the i20 will help the company to do so easily. The addition of a sharper front along with chrome, new headlamps, redesigned foglamps, new wheel caps, new alloy wheels will make the i20 look premium (not that its not now). The interiors will be largely unchanged but Hyundai might just play around a bit with colours. The engines and features will be untouched.
