Hyundai's i20 is getting a makeover. If a touch-up seems too soon, consider: the i20 may only have been on sale in Australia since mid-2010, but the current model has been on the international scene since 2008.
The Getz-replacing i20 brought a refreshing i30-inspired style to the brand's entry-level end at its debut. Now, as the latest evolution of Hyundai's "Fluidic Sculpture" design language expands across the range, the i20 is next in line for the scalpel.
While the usual heavy camouflage obscures most of the finer details, our spy photos show that the i20 will pick up new headlights with Hyundai's ribbon-like LED daytime running lights.
We can likely expect Hyundai's wide-open new grille to feature on the updated i20, and a heavier and more prominent character line could also feature along the small hatch's profile.
Watch for more details on the updated i20 to surface over the coming year, as Hyundai peals off more layers of its heavy camo.
