Thanks to WorldCarFans.com for clicking the first ever spyshots of the upcoming facelifted 2012 Hyundai i20, it was being delivered to Hyundai’s European test facility via that big green truck you see in the photos here.
From the images 2012 i20 is heavily camouflaged 5-door hatchback body-style but we can still spot its new front fascia, adopting an updated Hyundai Fluidic design Sculpture and a newly looking rear taillight. The new version of the car should make its debut in India by early-mid 2012.
Changes are expected within the cabin as well. We expect the basic layout and functions to remain the same but better quality materials and some inclusions such as chrome inserts may work towards freshening up the interiors.
Now Hyundai offers the car with both petrol as well as diesel engines but one of the things we don’t like is the soft suspension which does make the ride comfortable but, the drawbacks become clear when four to five people are in the car.
Presently the base petrol variant gets a 1.2 litre engine with 80 horsepower on tap and 112 torques while the base diesel variant gets a 1.4 litre CRDi unit with 90PS and 220Nm of torque. Hyundai also offers the i20 with an automatic gearbox which both the Swift and the Figo lack.
