The facelifted Hyundai i20 have been released onto the web ahead of the cars official unveiling at next weeks 82nd Geneva International Auto Salon. The styling tweaks to the three-year old i20 were more or less to be expected, as the focus was to refresh the supermini and bring it more in line with the latest Hyundai models on the Europe market such as the i30 hatch and i40 sedan/estate. Most of the changes take place up front with the 2012 i20 gaining slimmer headlamps, the company’s signature hexagonal grille, a redesigned front bumper with new vents and fog lamp housings, as well as a different hood that hugs the front fenders. The styling revisions continue at the back with new headlamps and a reprofiled bumper, while Hyundai also added new alloy wheel designs.For more information on the other upgrades that Hyundai may or may not have done on the 2012 i20, well have to wait for the Geneva Motor Show.
