When it goes on sale in the UK, it will be priced £450 lower than five-door, starting at £8,195.

The new model will get its first public showing at the Geneva Motor Show on March 3.

Hyundai expects i20 buyers will make the 1.2-litre petrol engine – dubbed ‘Kappa’ – the best-selling power plant in the range.

The three-door i20 is available to order now, with the first examples arriving in UK showrooms in April.

The new five-seater concept will be the headline model for the Korean brand at the show and is likely to be confirmed for production.

The concept is powered by a 168bhp, 1.6-litre GDi turbocharged petrol engine with ISG (idle stop and go) technology and a double-clutch six-speed transmission.

Hyundai hasn’t officially announced if it will go into production and there is no word on when UK dealers can expect to see a production ready version.
