The second generation models feature Hyundai's 'Fluidic Sculpture 2.0' design philosophy, and have been designed at Hyundai's design facility at Russelsheim in Germany. Ten Variants were launched in India and names were changed during the 2018 facelift.
Thoughts About The Sunroof On The New i20
Smart move by Hyundai. A sunroof is by far the most 'wanted' feature as far as the Indian consumer is concerned. In fact, most manufacturers are offering sunroofs on all of their top of the line models. We think a car without a sunroof will eventually be no car at all.
