Two new models will premiere at Hyundai’s stand in Germany in less than two weeks: the new i20 Active and the new Santa Fe. In addition, the Korean automaker will demonstrate the Android Auto smartphone mirroring technology in the new i40, making Hyundai one of the first automakers to offer the feature in Europe. The Hyundai Vision G coupe concept car that debuted during 2015 Monterey Car Week will also make its auto show debut as well as the N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo, which will help introduce Hyundai’s new performance N sub-brand.
The i20 Active further expands the appeal of the i20 range in Europe and will go on sale early 2016, joining the current i20 five-door and the sporty i20 coupe. Compared to the standard i20, the i20 Active has revised suspension, giving it 0.78 inches more ground clearance, while rugged crossover features like skid plates and cladding on the wheel arches is a bit like a page out of the Audi Allroad playbook.
Meanwhile, the Santa Fe is Hyundai’s longest-running model in Europe and the latest model gets a styling makeover that will get Hyundai’s latest design language.
Check back September 15 as AutoGuide.com will be reporting live from the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, and we’ll be sure to get all the details on Hyundai’s new N sub-brand.
