Hyundai ix20 mini-MPV picture released ahead of its Paris Auto Show premiere!
Hyundai today surprised the automobile enthusiasts around the world by releasing the very-first picture of the all-new ix20 mini-MPV! The next-generation ix20 MPV is scheduled to make its official premiere at this year’s Mondial de L’Automobile in Paris on September 30th, revealed the South Korean carmaker.
The all-new ix20 MPV was designed at the carmaker’s European R&D centre located in Germany. According to Hyundai, the ix20 represents a striking departure from boxy “minivan” image typically associated with the segment. The forth-coming Hyundai ix20 is claimed to be the second European Hyundai model which adopted Hyundai’s new “fluidic sculpture” design language.
Hyundai ix20 is scheduled to hit the European dealer stores in the fourth quarter of the year. The model will be available with a wide range of fuel-efficient gasoline and diesel engines, complying with EURO5 emission standards. It will also feature ISG (Idle Stop&Go) system, as well as Hyundai’s ground-breaking Five Year Triple package, which includes a 5 year unlimited-mileage warranty, 5 years of free health checks and 5 years of roadside assistance. The ix20 will only be sold in the European market.
What we know about the all-new Hyundai ix20? It uses the same platform as Kia Venga mini-MPV. The engine line-up will consist of modern four-cylinder diesel and gasoline engines with horsepower output ranging from 75 horsepower to 128 horsepower. The model is going to be built at Hyundai’s European manufacturing plant in Czech Republic, alongside its sister model Kia Venga.
Put also on display along the all-new Hyundai ix20 MPV will be a revised i10 mini-car. The 2011 Hyundai i10 will get a revised front fascia and new tail-lamps. The popular i10 will also benefit from other design and technical enhancements including the all-new 1.0L engine with CO2 emissions of just 99 grams per kilometer!
During the Paris Motor Show, Hyundai will also showcase the latest developments from its Blue Drive eco-focused program highlighting new environmental technologies set to contribute further to reductions in emissions from new Hyundai vehicles. Stay tuned for more Hyundai news from Paris!
