Hyundai i20 in USA And Canada – Is It Available?
Is Hyundai i20 available in the USA and Canada?
This is a question we hear commonly.
Unfortunately, Hyundai’s hot-looking i20 5-door hatchback is not coming to the USA or Canada.
Hyundai, the South Korean largest automaker, has developed the i20 hatchback exclusively for the European market.
Available as a 5-door hatchbback or 3-door coupe, the i20’s characteristics have been tailored to meet the European customer demands.
i20 = Accent
What’s good, though, is the fact that the US and Canadian consumers can get a similar car like the new Hyundai i20.
In the USA and Canada, Hyundai offers the Accent 4-door sedan and 5-door hatchbacks.
Those are both, essentially, the same vehicles as the i20, albeit featuring a completely different exterior and interior layouts.
Hyundai Accent is built upon the same sub-compact car platform as the i20 and uses the same powertrain technology as its European sibling.
Accent redesign launch: late 2017
The next-generation Accent is just around the corner with the fully-redesigned model coming to the market in about a year.
Those consumers looking to purchase a highly-advanced small hatchback or a sedan should wait a few more months until Hyundai releases the next-generation Accent.
Once on sale, consumers will be able to get exactly the same powertrain tech as found under the hood of the all-new Hyundai i20.
And that means Hyundai won’t need to bring the i20 to the USA, as a very similar model (the Accent) packing the same technology will already be on sale there.
