After releasing a teaser image back in September, Hyundai has unveiled the 2015 i20 Coupe which represents their first ever three-door B-segment model.
The second generation i20 debuted in early October at the Paris Motor Show where Hyundai brought the five-door hatchback and now the range has been expanded to include a more attractive three-door coupe which comes with more raked pillars to provide a dynamic look. The sloping roofline sits 25mm lower while the rear-mounted spoiler makes the i20 Coupe look sportier compared to its five-door sibling.
The front bumper has also been modified and incorporates a larger grille while taillights are a little bit bigger and send out a Volkswagen vibe. Despite being lower, Hyundai says headroom, legroom and shoulder room have remained the same while trunk space has increased by 10 liters to 336 liters. Other changes include fresh 17-inch alloy wheels and a Tangerine Orange exterior paint that can be matched with an orange interior.
As you would expect, the 2015 Hyundai i20 Coupe will get the same engines as the hatchback so customers will be able to choose from a 1.25-liter with 84 HP & 122 Nm, a 1.4-liter with 100 HP & 134 Nm as well as from two diesels: a 1.1-liter with 75 HP & 180 Nm and a 1.4-liter rated at 90 HP & 240 Nm. The 1.25-liter gasoline engine is mated to a five-speed gearbox whereas the others get a six-speed manual, with the possibility of choosing an optional four-speed auto for the 1.4 gasoline motor.
The Hyundai i20 Coupe will go on sale in March or April next year.
