It may be the first car they pay for, but that vehicle can still be an upgrade from the entry-level car their family owned before the kid of the family got a well-paying job and the family could afford to 'upgrade'.

Plenty of the Indian middle class belongs to that demographic.

Just saw the 3rd gen i20 (in cameo) near Escorts (Tractors) Corporate office. I could not manage a pic as I was driving.

However, my observations are as under:
1. It appears marginally wider than current gen.
2. Definitely lower than Baleno, which means it will be lesser spacious as ever.
3. The head & tail lights didn't had LEDs (halogens I guess). But had 16" alloys so was not the top end or turbocharged petrol I bet. The tyre & alloy optimal size were a visual treat in sea of cars with smaller tyres.
4. IMO the joined tail lights (reflector strip running left to right) could be restricted to few models or not there in Indian version. I could be wrong here, but the thick cameo didn't let any clues.

Hyundai had Technical Center in Faridabad so guess the engineer was driving to office for attendance before resuming daily running & data collection.

Not a big fan of these alloy wheels. Looking at all the previous leaked photos there are totally about 3 different alloy wheel designs.This one here is the worst looking for me.

The interior image leak show here doesn't show much,but is closely matching with the one they unveiled outside India.

These look like the wheel covers present on the current generations magna models so might not be alloys.

New pics of the Hyundai i20,!

"Sensual sportiness" is what Hyundai calls the new design language of the i20, which is now 2.4 centimeters flatter, three centimeters wider and five mm longer than before.

started with an unclad prototype for the first test drive. "Sensual sportiness" is what Hyundai calls the new design language of the i20, which is now 2.4 centimeters flatter, three centimeters wider and five millimeters longer than before. The wheelbase also grew a little. At the front you sit on long-distance, well-contoured, not too soft cushions. At the back, the Korean offers a lot of space for this class. The feeling of space is also better because of the larger window areas. Even when entering, you don't have to fold up - despite the slightly lower roof. Incidentally, the new Hyundai i20 (2020) also swallows 25 liters more luggage and also offers a flat extra compartment under the loading floor. The chic cockpit is functionally designed with buttons for climate functions and a large 10.25-inch touchscreen.

I'm loving the bold & edgy design. This looks like the hatchback version of the Verna - and that is a very good start. I hope common sense prevails and Hyundai don't overprice it.

Some news about the launch of the 2020 i20 in India. Scheduled for October '20. The earlier speculation were somewhere around August '20; but thanks to the COVID crises.
On a side note, credit to be given to KIA on sticking to the original launch timelines of the SONET inspite of the setback! This pretty much shows the market interest and the aggressiveness of the brand. Having said all of that, I just hope that they don't launch the car with niggles in order to meet the timelines. Fingers crossed!

Stumbled upon this video on Youtube, which is probably the best (and first?) undisguised look of the all new I20:



I just love the way the fuel cap is integrated here


P.S - The narration is not in English, but the owner of the clip has added subtitles

This model might be the one with iMT since the brake pedal is smaller unlike proper automatics which have a larger brake pedal.

Just saw this video:



You can see the convoy has a baleno and a Polo GT TSI. If they have a GT TSI for benchmarking then for sure we will get the 1.0L DCT variant at launch.

Looks interesting.

New 3rd Gen Hyundai i20 to launch in September.

Bookings Open unofficially (Offline) for Rs.11000. Early bookings will be given priority.

Like Venue & Sonet, New i20 will be powered by 1.2 Kappa Petrol, 1.0 Turbo Petrol & 1.5 Diesel.

Expect slight premium in pricing compared to current version.
