The Hyundai ix20 is an excellent mini MPV which offers a fun drive in a high quality build. It also has low running costs with frugal engines and has lots of equipment.
There are three engines to choose from and the best performer is probably the 1.6 litre CRDi which should return around 64 mpg while having CO2 emissions of 117g/km. The 1.4litre diesel engine is a slower performer and should return around 63 mpg. The petrol engines aren’t quite as frugal with the 1.4 litre unit returning around 47 mpg while having CO2 emissions of 140g/km and the 1.6 litre engine will return 44 mpg. All of the engines are responsive and offer enough power to make the car enjoyable to drive; it's a very able vehicle around town and excellent on motorways.
Sometimes the space on board a supermini just isn't enough which is why the ix20 really impresses with its versatility because it's effectively an MPV. In addition, the ix20 is cheaper than many MPVs while having a spacious interior and more economical engines. Those are not the only reasons for considering leasing the car because it also has a high quality of build and is fun to drive.
The ix20 is undoubtedly comfortable to drive thanks to the soft suspension which absorbs potholes and rough roads very well and there's very little in the way of road noise thanks to the excellent levels of insulation in the cabin. The car is easy to park while having cabin space which matches vehicles from the next segment up so there's enough room for five adults. There’s also a rear bench which is easily moved to create more boot space or legroom depending on need and despite its 'boxy' design it is also quite stylish. The boot is also an impressive 440 litres in size and with the rear seats folded flat it will expand to a huge 1,486 litres. The ix20 is a safe car to drive having scored full marks in the Euro NCAP crash tests and comes with electronic stability control, traction control and a range of airbags fitted as standard. There's also anti-lock brakes and hill-start assist.
The level of standard equipment also helps to set this car apart from its rivals and all models come with air con, while other models get Bluetooth connectivity, alloy wheels and parking sensors. There's also a leather steering wheel, stop-start to help economy and rear privacy glass. Essentially, the ix20 is a versatile and practical choice for a small MPV which offers lots of space and frugal engines to make this an excellent and competitive vehicle.
