Hyundai officially reveals the design of the i20 Active

  • Feb 25, 2015

Recently the web-space got flooded with the production ready pictures of the crossover version of the Elite i20 named as i20 Active. Now Hyundai as officially revealed the sketches of the i20 Active, which of course looks exactly the same the pictures of the car, only little more exciting.

Hyundai defines the i20 Active as the “SUV looking car” and also reveals that the car has been designed at the Hyundai’s Design Centre Europe located at Russelsheim, Germany. The i20 Active just like the Elite i20 is based on the ‘Fluidic Sculpture 2.0’ design language and has added body cladding around the car with faux skid plates on front and rear, new grille, new bumper in front and rear with new fog lamps. The huge reflectors on the rear bumper look weird though. The i20 Active will be launched globally in India next month.Hyundai i20 Active rendering

Even though Hyundai has refrained from officially revealing too many details about the upcoming car, the spy pictures tell us that there will be LED Daytime Running Lamps (DRLs) among all the visual changes in the i20 Active.

It is still unknown if Hyundai will increase the ground clearance or tweak the engine to even out the increased weight of the cladding. Hyundai will retain the petrol and diesel engines that power the Elite i20 with manual transmission. There is also no information about the interiors of the i20 Active, as far as we know, Hyundai will put the same features available with the Elite i20 in the i20 Active with little changes to the textile on the seats and color of the dashboard.Hyundai i20 Active rendering

Hyundai will manufacture the i20 Active in India to export around the world. The i20 Active will mark Hyundai’s entry in the ever competitive crossover segment which is currently occupied by Fiat Avventura, Toyota Etios Cross and Volkswagen Cross Polo. We expect Hyundai to price the car very competitively, may be around Rs. 60,000 more than the hatchback version of the car.
