Hyundai i20 In USA And Canada; Is It Available in 2020?
Is Hyundai i20 available in the USA and Canada?
This is a question we get asked almost every day.
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.
Hyundai 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.
Hyundai Accent redesign launch date
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.
Please bring the I20 to the US. Not everyone wants a SUV !!!!!!
I want to buy a Hyundai Accent N (not an N-line).
You’d think someone in “Marketing” would see , “This is a question we get asked almost every day.” and think…..hey there seems to be interest in this car here hem….. Maybe just MAYBE, we don’t want what you think we want….but actually we want an i20!!!!!!! NOT AN ACCENT which IS NOT AN i20!!!!!!!! So! HEY MARKETING DEPARTMENT!!! Give us the i20! or if you like (you just have to be right, ’cause you know what WE WANT more than we do) take the i20 badges off and replace them with Accent badges for the North American market and we ALL WIN!!!!
Fred Jones……well said!
Ridiculous laws in the US prevent us from getting all the great European market cars. In reality the US car companies know they wouldn’t survive if they let in the awesome vehicles everyone else gets. Same with everything in the US, it’s a lesser version of what’s available to everyone else. From chocolate to cars, US brands only survive because they don’t let in any real competition.
