Hyundai showed on Monday night (16), in Una (BA), a deep restyling of Brazil's second best selling car, the HB20. The model costs from $ 46,490, but the automaker has not yet disclosed the price of other versions.

This is not a new generation, but hatch, sedan and the adventurous version have undergone significant changes, especially in design. The 2020 line of the HB20 is unveiled just one week after the launch of the new generation of its main rival Chevrolet Onix.

To create the new family, Hyundai was inspired by the Saga EV concept, exhibited at the last São Paulo Motor Show. The HB20 gained a lower front, sharper headlights and a larger grille.

However, the biggest controversy is in the rear of the three models. The lanterns grew. In the case of HB20 and HB20X, the pieces now have boomerang shapes. In the HB20S, they are bigger, and they invade the trunk lid a lot.

The new HB20 family will have a tough mission: to remain competitive in the face of recent changes to Chevrolet Onix, its biggest competitor, and the best-selling car in Brazil, which has just won a new generation.

Chevrolet owner GM has taken care of hatch and sedan content, and now all versions come standard with 6 airbags and traction and stability controls.

From intermediate versions, it is still possible to equip Onix and Onix Plus (Prisma's new name) with face-to-face access and starting, induction cell phone charger and light sensors.

It also features new 3-cylinder engines. The simplest options include an 82-horsepower aspirated unit, while the rest feature a 116-horsepower turbocharged unit with no direct injection.
