Hyundai has unveiled the facelifted i20 at the Geneva Motor Show.

Looking more refined, the model adopts a ‘fluidic sculpture' design with modified bumpers, a revised grille and restyled headlights. There's also a new hood and updated taillights.

Interior changes are limited, but include updated upholstery, revised switchgear and gloss black accents on the dashboard. The cabin also has additional sound deadening material, a push-button ignition and a rear-view camera.

Under the hood, four engines are available:

  • A 1.1-liter three-cylinder diesel with 75 PS (55 kW / 74 hp) and 180 Nm (133 lb-ft) of torque
  • A 1.4-liter diesel with 90 PS (66 kW / 89 hp) and 220 Nm (162 lb-ft) of torque
  • A 1.2-liter petrol with 85 PS (63 kW / 84 hp) and 121 Nm (89 lb-ft) of torque
  • A 1.4-liter petrol with 100 PS (74 kW / 99 hp) and 137 Nm (101 lb-ft) of torque

Depending on which engine is selected, it can be paired with a five- or six-speed manual or an optional four-speed automatic.

Lastly, the model also benefits from a retuned suspension and a new rack and pinion steering system which delivers "quick and accurate responses."
