The second-generation Hyundai i20 has been spied hot-weather testing in Germany.

Wearing less camouflage than when it was first spotted earlier this month, the Hyundai i20 prototype appears to be a larger, sportier evolution of the first-generation Hyundai Getz-replacement.

Believed to be based on an all-new platform, the five-door hatch has a more upright, horizontal grille flanked by sleeker, elongated headlights. The wide triangular fog lights of the current model make way for rectangular items dropped down into the lower half of a more aggressive front bumper.

Smaller, more upright tail-lights appear to flow into a new tailgate that features a larger, reshaped rear window and a reversing camera.

With the removal of some of the cladding, the car’s shapely new rear doors and¬†gloss-black C-pillar are also revealed, highlighting the Korean manufacturer’s move away from the existing car’s squarer design.

Expected to debut in late 2014, the sharper looking Hyundai i20 should arrive on local shores early in 2015.

    interesting bonnet line on the side.
    looks like those headlights are getting even longer.

    That C-pillar looks nice. Looks like overall they’re toning their designs down a bit, which is great to see. Looks like they’re getting serious about becoming a major volume player.

    Potentially a clean and rather nice design. that’s provided the plastic on the sides isn’t hiding anything nasty.

      yep, anythings probably better than the current ugly design inside and out, the main thing they need to fix though is steering and handling, the i20 is no where near its kia sibling in any area currently, also the 1.4 and 4 speed auto is very slow in the current gen

    Overall it looks quite promising. Hopefully we see it revealed before the debut date
