With very little time in the market, Hyundai could be preparing a first update of the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq, one of the most interesting cars on the market to have a hybrid version, hybrid plug-in and a hundred percent electric variant.
The 2020 Hyundai Ioniq range was introduced to the automotive market at the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017. The first version that was on sale was the hybrid, then came the plug-in hybrid and the last one hundred percent electric. Well, the South Korean firm is already fine-tuning a deep update of this versatile model, which could become a reality in 2020.
In the Valley of the Death of California has been “hunted” a ” mysterious” Hyundai with physiognomy and appearance of the Ioniq, but yes, with apparent and noticeable changes. According to the information that Autopista.es has been able to compile, it is a more than renewed Ioniq. According to these spy images, a new style pattern can be seen in the front grille, which changes its appearance with respect to the grid of horizontal slats of the current model. Also, you can also see slight changes in the headlights and rear optical groups.
Other sources of information indicate that the 2020 Hyundai Ioniq will have aesthetic features inherited from the Le Fil Rouge concept, a prototype with which the Hyundai lays the foundation for the new design DNA of the new cars that will be commercialized in the coming years. This Hyundai Le Fil Rouge was presented at the Geneva Motor Show last March and, among other values, represented the new “sports sensuality” and aesthetics applied in a car.
The first model that will definitely adopt the new design language introduced by the Hyundai Le Fil Rouge will be the new generation of the Sonata, which will be launched on the market in 2019. Everything indicates that the Ioniq also do the same in 2020.
At the technical level, at the moment there are no official data on the changes that the Hyundai Ioniq range will incorporate in 2020. Everything indicates that its three versions will take a step forward in terms of efficiency.
