One of the most successful models in Hyundai's European line-up, the i20 returns to the Paris Auto Show with a more dynamic profile.
Enhancing the character of the i20, Hyundai's European R&D Center in Russelsheim, Germany, has developed the i20 Sport Edition in cooperation with German high-performance tuning company, Car Research and Development (CRD).
The bespoke body kit adds a wide assortment of styling enhancements to the i20 interior and exterior, bringing a sporty image to the vehicle and adding a luxurious touch.
The Sport Edition adds body-colored front spoiler and fender flares to the exterior, while a glossy radiator grille mesh insert, black headlight bezels and are also introduced.
The car's sporty appearance is completed with the inclusion of a glossy B-pillar, smoked windows, dark red tinted rear lights and 17-inch Brabus wheels with Yokohama tires.
Inside, a luxurious dimension is added with orange leather Recaro seats, a black leather gearshift with orange-colored seams, a chrome shift knob, a leather-wrapped center console, leather-covered door panels, and a 7-inch touchscreen navigation unit.
The i20 Sport Edition will go into limited production during the first half of 2011, when Hyundai will announce details of the model's engine and transmission specifications. The car will be available in either three- or five-door guise, manufactured at Hyundai's Indian and Turkish plants, respectively.
