Hyundai has received international recognition for its vehicle design from the iF Design Awards jury. The New Generation i20 has won the iF Design Award 2015 in the "Product" discipline, under the "Automobiles / Vehicles / Bikes" category.
The award recognises the refined design of the new generation i20. It was influenced by the latest interpretation of the company's Fluidic Sculpture design philosophy, characterised by the car's clean and elegant lines and the prominent hexagonal grille that marks it out as a Hyundai.
The team from Hyundai Motor's Design Centre Europe in Rüsselsheim, Germany paid attention to achieve balanced proportions. The front-end design and long hood create a powerful stance, and the gloss-black C-pillar delivers a unique floating-roof motif.
Inside, the i20 features soft-touch materials, as well as subtle piano black inserts and chrome detailing, to create a modern and sophisticated interior package.
For more than 60 years, the iF Design Awards have been recognised across the world as a symbol of design excellence. Organised by iF International Forum Design GmbH, the awards recognise outstanding design across various disciplines and categories.
The jury awarded the sought-after prize to Hyundai's New Generation i20 following a rigorous judging process, involving almost 5,000 entries from 53 countries. The iF Design Award night will take place on 27 February 2015.
