Hyundai has released pictures of its all-new i20, bringing the company’s ‘sensuous sportiness’ design language to Europe.
The i20, which will be built in Izmit, Turkey, and unveiled at the 2020 Geneva International Motor Show, has also received a range of technical enhancements to go with the new exterior design.
Two 10.25in screens consisting of a digital cluster and a navigation touchscreen are visually combined in the dashboard.
Also available are a 10.25in audio/video/navigation touchscreen, an 8in touchscreen with display audio, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and wireless charging.
The i20 comes with Hyundai’s Bluelink technology, offering a range of connected services such as Hyundai Live Services, and remote features via the Bluelink smartphone app.
Hyundai Live Services has real-time traffic information from TomTom, and information on fuel stations/parking spaces and speed cameras, and weather updates.
Online voice recognition is a cloud-based system with natural language understanding.
Bluelink app services include ‘find my car’, to locate the vehicle in an unfamiliar setting; remote services for locking the car remotely; ‘send to car’ to find local points of interest; security for vehicle alarm notifications; and maintenance for reports on the vehicle.
The Hyundai i20 comes with various driver assistants covering speed, lane following and blind spots. Forward Collision Avoidance Assist has been upgraded to detect pedestrians and cyclists.
The i20 also comes with eCall to contact the emergency services at the touch of a button.
The system activates automatically if the airbags are deployed.
