Hyundai to unveil ix20 at Paris Motorshow

2 September 2010 - At this year's Mondial de l'Automobile in Paris, Hyundai will celebrate the world premiere of its new B-segment MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle). To be presented as the Hyundai ix20, a sketch revealed today shows the new model as a striking departure from the boxy 'minivan' image typically associated with the segment, adopting a more dynamic, sportier profile.

Designed and developed at Hyundai's European R&D centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany, the ix20 is the second European car, following the ix35, to adopt Hyundai's new 'fluidic sculpture' design language. The name ix20 reflects the new model's crossover-like versatility.

Another model making its world premiere at Paris is the new i10. This upgraded version of Hyundai's city car benefits from a comprehensive set of enhancements in terms of design, specification and competiveness, including a new 1.0-litre engine with CO2 emissions of just 99 g/km.

Hyundai has extended its display area at this year's show by 66%, in order to showcase the company's broad product line-up and new technologies.
