Our spies grabbed on camera a slightly less disguised prototype of the second-gen Hyundai i20.

This time around the prototype was spied testing in southern Europe wearing a bit less camouflage which allows us to see its bigger lower front grille and sweptback headlights. We also notice the vertical taillights and a tailgate-mounted spoiler while the turn signals are now built into the mirrors. The second generation model will probably grow in size a bit since the i10 is now slightly larger so Hyundai will definitely want to better separate the two.

There won't be any surprises under the hood where the 2015 Hyundai i20 will have 3-cylinder 1.0-liter and 4-cylinder 1.25-liter gasoline engines along with 3-cylinder 1.1- and 4-cylinder 1.4-liter turbodiesels mated to a standard 6-speed manual or an optional automatic 'box. More interesting will be next year's range-topping i20 N part of the company's newly established performance division.

The second generation Hyundai i20 will probably be unveiled in October at the 2014 Paris Motor Show before going on sale late this year or early 2015.
