Hyundai will kick off an intensive
period of product launches by unveiling two important new models at this
year’s Paris Motor Show.
First of these exciting new models is
Hyundai’s new B-segment MPV, named ix20. The ix20 is
the second European model to adopt Hyundai’s new ‘fluidic sculpture’
design language which helps differentiate it from the boxy ‘minivan’
image typically associated with the segment.
On sale from mid November in the UK,
ix20 is expected to attract young families with its excellent all-round
package: class-leading fuel economy and low CO2 emissions;
the latest in active and passive safety technologies; and the company’s
groundbreaking Five Year Triple Care warranty.
The ix20 will be joined at the show by
the facelifted version of Hyundai’s best selling i10 city car. The new
i10 features comprehensive visual and mechanical improvements, including
a new 1.0-litre engine with CO2 emissions of just 99 g/km.
The new version of the i10 will go on sale early in 2011.
