Hyundai's premium hatchback has been spotted testing in Europe. The heavily camouflaged mule doesn't give out too much detail but does hint at the possible changes. The face appears to be sharper, and in line with other Hyundais in the family. The gaping hexagonal grille features honeycomb detailing, which is likely to be carried over as is. The lower air dam has been reworked as well, with the foglamps growing in size and being positioned a notch higher. Unlike the Xcent that chose not to sport the slim grille connecting the headlamps, the updated i20 will.
Over to the side, there's not much different save for a pair of new alloy wheels. The mule also sports rear disc brakes, which are expected to make their way to India as well. The Hyundai Elite i20 will continue to feature its signature blacked-out C-pillar with the update.
The big update to the rear is that the number plate has now been moved to the hatch lid from the bumper. The bumper itself has been redesigned and now features what appears to be a faux diffuser. The rear foglamps have been moved higher as well. The tail lamps appear to be an all-LED setup, but retain the same shape as the ones on the current model.

With the update, we don't see Hyundai rejigging the engine options on offer. It will continue to feature the 1.2-litre petrol and the 1.4-litre diesel engines that currently develop 83PS/115Nm and 89PS/220Nm respectively. It'd be interesting to see if Hyundai chooses to introduce a performance version of the hatchback to take on the likes of the Baleno RS and the Volkswagen Polo GT TSi.
