Hyundai i20 Coupe joins the range

The new Hyundai i20 Coupe promises a sleek new look and efficient engines

Just months after the new Hyundai i20 hatchback was revealed, the Korean brand has unveiled a more stylish version to appeal to a younger audience, called the Hyundai i20 Coupe.

The sleeker body features a lower roofline, more aggressively-styled wheelarches and a more steeply raked windscreen than the standard i20, hinting at a sportier feel. New tail lamps, a roof spoiler and restyled bumper complete the look.

Despite sharing its platform with the i20 hatchback, the Coupe has been designed for a younger audience, and should offer a more involving driving experience. Eduardo Remairez, Hyundai's European Design Centre General Manager said the Coupe's new look "emphasises its road-hugging character".

Even with the sleeker profile, the i20 Coupe will boost best-in-class luggage space, with a 336 litre boot that's bigger than a standard i20, and even a Ford Focus.

The engine range will, at the moment, remain similar to the i20 hatchback, with 1.25 and 1.4-litre petrol and 1.1 and 1.4-litre diesel engines. But later in 2015 there will be a turbocharged three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol called the T-GDI, with outputs of 99 and 123bhp. That should bring enough performance and efficiency to rival the Ford Fiesta Ecoboost.

Prices and full specs have yet to be unveiled by the firm, but expect a small increase in price over the i20 hatchback.
