Hyundai is putting the final touches on its facelifted i20 and was recently spied testing a thinly-disguised prototype in Turkey. These images, snapped by Carscoops reader Faati in Turkey, show a light blue prototype with significantly less camouflage than previous prototypes. In fact, only the front and rear fascias and three-quarter panels are covered from view. By comparison, a similar prototype we spied last year also had body cladding on its doors. Beneath the camouflage at the front is tipped to be Hyundai’s new hexagonal grille, redesigned LED daytime running lights, an overhauled bumper, and round fog lamps. It seems apparent that a new bonnet has also been designed. Styling changes continue at the rear. For example, there are new taillights with revised graphics that have been accompanied by a new bumper.
