Hyundai’s all-new 2015 i20 hatch has been given an unscheduled unveiling this week, surfacing in India this week.

The new i20 is expected to make its official debut in October, succeeding the first-generation model that debuted in 2007 as a replacement for the Getz.

As expected, the new i20 shares many of its styling themes with the smaller i10, the front-end dominated by a large lower grille, long headlights and a slender black garnish.

The new model’s headlights may also feature a long ribbon-like LED daytime light system, although it remains to be seen if the strip visible here can be lit.

The profile sees the new i20 take on a more angular look than the outgoing model, with a fast-rising belt line creating the image of a tapered roof line.

Styling at the rear sees new Genesis-inspired tail-lights, again featuring what could be LED elements.

Interestingly, the design of this i20’s tail-lights and tail-gate do not match up with the model spied by TMR’s photographers, suggesting either a late change or a market-specific look.

Which will we see in Australia? Likely the more premium look shown in these new images, but only time will tell.

The new i20 is also understood to be slightly larger than its predecessor, focusing on increased interior space.

International engine options for the new model are likely to include a number of small-capacity petrol and diesel engines, including 1.0 litre three- and 1.25 litre four-cylinder petrol units and, in Europe, 1.1 and 1.4 litre diesel engines.

Likely due in Australia next year, the new i20 will take up its predecessor’s battle to remain the top-selling light car in Australia.

Figures to the end of June show the i20 leading its segment with 7736 year-to-date sales, followed by the Mazda2 (6616), the Yaris (6573) and the Suzuki Swift (4506). Kia’s Rio rounds out the top five with 4305 YTD sales.
