The Hyundai i20 is a supermini that's a great choice for anyone needing practicality and space. It's also one of the best looking cars in its segment too.
Drivers of the Hyundai i20 have the choice of a good range of engines with a particularly impressive 1.1 litre CRDI on offer which returns 88 mpg and has emissions of 84g/km. That means very low running costs though drivers should also take a closer look at the more powerful 1.4 litre diesel unit which returns 69 mpg and has emissions of 96g/km as this probably offers more. The petrol engines are sprightly but not as frugal with a 1.2 litre petrol unit returning 50 mpg and emissions of 114g/km and a 1.0litre unit offering a surprisingly punchy performance and economy of 59mpg.
with so many carmakers making extraordinary claims that their supermini is the best value for money on the market, this is certainly the case when it comes to the Hyundai i20. Not only is the car cheap to buy and run, in the diesel units at least, it's also reliable and very well equipped. Indeed, there are some very strong reasons why the i20 offers a reasonable alternative to the better-known rivals and for anyone wanting a car of this size it should be on their shortlist.
Handling for the i20 is quite impressive, the suspension has a nice soft setup which deals with rough roads adequately and it's very good on corners too; overall handling is quite impressive. While the car will probably be used mainly in towns and cities it's also a very good for use out on the motorway, particularly for long distance journeys with its high comfort levels coming to the fore. It is also a good performer around town with agility and it is easy to park. The cabin is spacious with plenty of room for tall adults and families - the rear seats certainly offer more space than some rivals. The boot size is 295litres which helps to make it a practical choice but with the rear seats folded flat this expands to a useful 1,060litres.
The Hyundai i20 has been well-designed and made from robust materials which helps underpin its appeal as a family car. Among the equipment fitted as standard are active head restraints, six airbags and electronic stability control with other kit featuring air con, MP3 connectivity and electric windows. Some models also come with Bluetooth connectivity, alloy wheels and steering wheel mounted controls while top models have automatic wipers and headlights, rear parking sensors and climate control. The bottom line is that the Hyundai i20 is a remarkable and well-built small car that is packed with equipment with a decent ride and impressive levels of economy.
