What is it?

The i20 is one of the batch of all-new Hyundais. The i20 sits in the supermini sector and the new model now oozes quality from a price band above. The five-door hatchback is also very spacious both in the cabin and the boot.

What is the Hyundai i20 like to drive?

The i20 may not be the quickest car in the sector, but that’s not what this hatch is about. Hyundai has focussed on comfort rather than sportiness with the i20 and the ride and handling reflect this.

What engines are available?

At the entry end of the i20 range (S) there is a choice of a 75hp 1.2 petrol engine and a 75hp 1.1 diesel. From SE upward there are three engines available, an 84hp 1.2 petrol, a 100hp 1.4 petrol and a 90hp 1.4 diesel. The 100hp engine is the only version available with an automatic gearbox.


What are the key standard features of the Hyundai i20?

The range starts with the S which includes driver’s seat height adjustment, day running lights, powered and heated door mirrors, one-touch indicators, trip computer, USB & aux sockets, hill start assist and Hyundai’s five-year warranty.

  • SE adds 16in alloy wheels, leather steering wheel, aircon, front fog lights, cruise control, Bluetooth and steering wheel mounted controls.
  • Premium model adds auto wipers and lights, auto-dimming rear view mirror, power/fold door mirrors and upgraded instrument cluster.
  • Premium SE adds a chrome grille surround, heated front seats, sunroof, heated steering wheel and parking sensors front and back.
  • Premium Nav adds a 7in colour touchscreen navigation system.
  • Premium SE Nav then combines both the Premium SE kit and the Premium Nav kit.

What are the key options?

Hyundai believes in loading its cars with standard kit so the only options are metallic paint and a driver assist pack that adds uprated headlights, LED day running lights and a smartphone doc.

How spacious is the Hyundai i20?

The i20’s forte is interior space. The new model has class-leading space and can easily carry five adults. The boot is an impressive 326 litres which would worry some cars in the size above. There’s also a split load floor to hide valuables under.

Running Costs & Safety

What will it cost to run?

The 75hp 1.1 diesel is one of the most efficient cars in its class with a CO2 output of just 84g/km putting it in the 22% benefit in kind tax band. The 75hp petrol sits one band higher with CO2 emissions of 112g/km. However, fleet buyers looking for a bit more kit can still have the 90hp diesel which emits 106g/km CO2 and is in the 25% benefit in kind band.

What safety features does it have?

All models come with six airbags, anti-skid control, seatbelt reminder, tyre pressure warning system, and vehicle stability management. SE and above adds lane departure warning and tyre pressure system with individual tyre readouts.
