In addition, for the Platinum Plus version, the digital air conditioning becomes automatic, with three levels of intensity.

Special emphasis on the Remote Start of the engine, available from the Platinum version. This technology gives the driver the convenience of starting the engine and acclimatizing the car remotely, using the key in person.

The on-site key also allows the doors to be locked and unlocked by proximity, with the touch of a button on the handle, and the engine start by a button on the panel.

enhanced security

SmartSense is Hyundai’s advanced safety package, which has gained additional functions for the new Hyundai HB20, some of which are unprecedented in the compact segment. With these functions, the new Hyundai HB20 is the compact vehicle that offers the most active safety features in its segment.

One of the highlights is the Lane Centering Assistant (LFA), which monitors the vehicle’s position in relation to the traffic signal and the vehicle ahead, acting autonomously on the steering wheel to keep the new Hyundai HB20 centered in the lane. of shooting. New to the Platinum Plus version, Rear Cross Traffic Assistant (RCCA) helps avoid collisions when backing out of a parking space, using radars that detect when a vehicle is approaching, giving an audible warning and even braking the car if required.

Another unprecedented alert is the Safe Exit, which prevents accidents that can be caused by opening doors when other vehicles approach. The system issues warnings if a car, approaching from behind, is detected at the moment when an occupant opens the door to exit. In addition, the Blind Spot Assist (BCA) will also be available, which uses sensors to indicate to the driver the existence of vehicles in blind spots. This indication is made directly on the outside rear view mirrors. BCA is an active function and, if necessary, can automatically control the vehicle to reduce the risk of a collision when changing lanes.

All versions of the new Hyundai HB20 have six airbags, including standard side curtain airbags. Also part of the standard list are ABS brakes with EBD, electronic stability and traction controls (ESP and TCS), emergency braking signaling (ESS) and hill start assistant (HAC). Inside the cabin, the package common to all versions completes the three-point belts for all occupants, headrests in the front and rear seats with height adjustment, ISOFIX®, rear window wiper and defroster, automatic door locking and trunk speed at 20 km/h, child safety locks on the rear doors and automatic unlocking of the doors in the event of an accident.

updated design

Visually, everything is new. The front has been completely updated. A new front grille has parametric elements, such as standard halogen DRL headlamps. In the top-of-the-line configuration, the Platinum Plus, the DLR comes in LED. Other highlights are the bulkier bumper, which now houses the turn signals, and more horizontal fenders and hood, bringing greater sophistication and robustness. The new design is more straight and geometric, increasing the perception of the size of the car, which had its length increased by 75 millimeters, being 50 millimeters in the front overhang and 25 millimeters in the rear overhang.

The rear of the new Hyundai HB20 has been restyled and also grown. It now features integrated taillights that cross the car from side to side, in line with other recent Hyundai models, such as the new Tucson and Elantra. The harmony between the new bumper with elements in matte black, the new LED taillights, the turn signals and reversing lights positioned in the bumper and the larger trunk lid make the look even more technological and modern.

The larger external dimensions match the new 16” alloy wheels with a diamond finish, which have grown over the previously used 15” wheels. For body colors, there are six paint tones: Atlas White and Ebony Black, for solid colors, Brisk Silver, Sand Silver and Silk Gray, for metallic paints, and the pearlized Sapphire Blue tone, which was exclusive to the HB20 sedan and now is now also available in the hatch.

Upon entering the cabin, the interior features a harmonious combination of predominantly dark colors, which refers to a technological and sporty environment. Exclusively for the HB20 Platinum Plus, the seats feature a mix of black leather and fabric with other leather-covered elements (steering wheel, grip, center console armrest and door trim).

Motorization

The new Hyundai HB20 features the Kappa 1.0 and Kappa 1.0 TGDI engines, which use the 3-cylinder configuration with 12 valves to deliver the performance of a larger engine with the consumption of a compact engine, following the L7 emission protocol. The Kappa 1.0 TGDI engine is the evolution of the traditional aspirated version. With Direct Injection, turbocharger and intercooler, the engine’s power is delivered from the lowest revs, from 1,500 rpm, and continues steadily up to 3,500 rpm. In other words: overtaking and accelerating are more efficient, with full torque always available.
