2010 Hyundai i20 Sport Edition by Brabus

Brabus is famous for tuning German models, and it usually goes for sportiness and luxury. But this time the German tuner went in a totally new and unexpected direction. The German tuner, in close cooperation to Hyundai developed the special edition i20 Sport.

The exterior package includes: body-colored front skirt and wheelarch flares to the exterior, while a glossy radiator grille mesh insert, black bezel headlights and daytime running lights are also introduced. The car’s sporty appearance is completed with the inclusion of a glossy B-pillar, smoked windows, dark red tinted rear lights and 17-inch Brabus alloy wheels with Yokohama tires.

On the interior the tuner added Orange leather Recaro seats, a black leather gearshift cover with orange-colored seams, a chrome gear shift knob, a leather-wrapped center console, leather-covered door panels, and a 7-inch touch screen navigation all bring added verve to the driving experience.

One of the most successful models in Hyundai’s European line-up, the i20 returns to Paris this year, having made its global debut at the 2008 edition of the show. A facelift earlier in the year kept the model fresh, and now the i20 has an even more dynamic profile.

Enhancing the energetic character of the i20, Hyundai’s European R&D Center in Rüsselsheim, Germany, has developed the i20 Sport Edition, in cooperation with German high-performance aftermarket tuning company, Car Research and Development (CRD).

Bringing further excitement to the Hyundai range, the bespoke kit adds a wide assortment of styling enhancements to the i20 supermini’s interior and exterior, bringing a sporty and sophisticated image to the vehicle and adding a luxurious touch by applying high-quality materials to the interior.

Accentuating the i20’s already dynamic image, the Sport Edition adds body-coloured front skirt and wheelarch flares to the exterior, while a glossy radiator grille mesh insert, black bezel headlights and daytime running lights are also introduced. The car’s sporty appearance is completed with the inclusion of a glossy B-pillar, smoked windows, dark red tinted rear lights and 17-inch Brabus alloy wheels with Yokohama tyres.

The car will be available in either three- or five–door guise, manufactured at Hyundai’s Indian and Turkish plants, respectively.

The interior looks so ugly with its color and the exterior looks very simple and ordinary for a sport edition. Brabus needs to enhance his design, I guess.

I must agree with them. The color of the interior look so ugly with its color, it didn’t suits for it, but I must say that I love the cool wheels of this car either.

I noticed that its interior touch seems not suited on the exclusive exterior appearance of it. However, I must say that I’m already impressed on the other features of it, especially its center console.

The color of its interior really don’t suited for it. I noticed that the wheels of this car is quite cool and impressive for me. As for the outlook of this car, it had a very common styling.

I must agree with Gero Trevisano. The color of the interior look so ugly with its color, it didn’t suits for it but I must say that I love the cool wheels of this car either.

Sorry to say but I can’t see the "SPORTY" design on this sport edition of Hyundai i20. The interior looks so ugly with its color and the exterior looks so simple and ordinary for a sport edition. Brabus needs to enhance his design, I guess.

As much as I like what Hyundai is doing, I’m going with Lorenzo somewhat on this one.

How are they "cheapening" the brand? Hyundai is better than Toyota and Honda at this point. Brabus is a tuner, plain and simple. They just better be happy they have something to tune.
