2023 Hyundai i20 Facelift Spotted On Test For The First Time — All Details | V3Cars
The 2023 Hyundai i20 was recently captured on test in India for the first time. Hyundai recently revealed the i20 facelift in the European markets and its India launch is likely soon. Read on to know more about the upcoming Hyundai i20 facelift.
Hyundai i20 Facelift Spotted In India
The first spy shots of the i20 facelift reveal its rear and side profiles. The test car was spotted with minimal camouflage at the rear. Speaking of the changes, the image of the rear of the i20 facelift reveals the reflectors placed on the bumper, which are not seen on the current model. We expect Hyundai to tweak the design of both front and rear bumpers of the India-spec i20 facelift in line with the global model.

What is not similar to the global facelift is the new design for the 16-inch alloy wheels. While the Euro-spec i20 facelift features a star-pattern for the alloy wheels, the India-spec model is likely to get a different alloy wheel design, like the ones seen on the spy shots. Apart from that, the side profile doesn’t carry any changes over the current i20.
Euro-Spec Hyundai i20 Facelift Changes
Like we stated earlier, Hyundai recently revealed the i20 facelift for European markets. The updated model gets a redesigned front fascia, featuring tweaked headlights, radiator grille and front bumper. Furthermore, the refreshed model also offers a new set of alloy wheels and tweaked rear profile. Hyundai have also added a couple of features as standard along with 3 new colour options.
