2023 Hyundai i20 facelift: What we know so far

As mentioned earlier, the new Hyundai i20 facelift has been spotted on Korean roads on multiple occasions. When the hatchback was spotted in December 2022, it was heavily camouflaged. But, there were certain features that stood out prominently. The front grille, which was partially uncovered, seems to have undergone a slight redesign. The bumper and LED headlamps may also receive a few design tweaks.

There are no significant changes along the sides. The frame of the hatchback remains intact. Higher variants of the i20 facelift may get a new set of alloy wheels. The test mule had plastic wheel covers which means it was an entry-level variant. The rear end of the vehicle was under heavy camouflage and not much could be made out. Hyundai may tweak the tail lamp design a bit and even introduce a light bar similar to the one on Venue and Exter.
