Hyundai ix20 revealedThu, 02 Sep 2010 00:00:00 -0700
The Hyundai ix20 will debut at Paris
As is often the case, ‘revealed’ is perhaps too strong a word for what we have on Hyndai’s latest offering – the Hyundai ix20. One up from a tease and not quite a reveal, Hyundai has sent us a sketch of the ix20 which will debut at the Paris Motor Show in a few weeks time.
Just like a bus, you get nothing new in the oxymoron car sector (mini MPV) for ages and then two crop up at once. Yesterday we had the Toyota Verso S popping in (replete with with nothing much more than teaser details) and today we get Hyundai’s offering in the same market with about the same amount of detail as we got on the Verso S. But at least with the Verso S we got a photo – all Hyundai has sent us on the ix20 is the sketch you see at the top.
What we do know is the the Hyundai ix20 will utilise Hyundai’s latest ‘fluidic sculpture’ design and has been penned at Hyundai’s R&D centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany. Hyundai are saying all the usual stuff – dynamic, fun to drive, versatile – and we have no doubt it will be. Hyundai are very sure-footed at the moment.
So is the ix20 an MPV? Or is it a Crossover?
