For The 1.4 gives noticeably gutsier performance than the 1.2-litre petrol unit , and Active trim provides some desirable extra kit.
Against Choosing this combination of engine and trim pushes the i20's price up a tad too much to make sense. Stick with the 1.2 Classic model.
This version provides a generous level of equipment, but we think the 1.4 engine is an unnecessary expense. The 1.2 is cheaper to buy and run and does as good a job.
Of the various engines available in the Hyundai i20, you're best off with the entry-level 83bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine. It feels peppy for a small engine, and there's good flexibility, too. If you're after a gutsier petrol engine, choose the 98bhp 1.4.
Entry-level Classic cars come with air-conditioning, remote central locking and electric front windows, and that’s enough for it to be our favourite. Active spec adds alloys, electric rear windows, Bluetooth and front foglights, while Style models get luxuries such as automatic lights and wipers, climate control and a reversing camera that’s integrated into the rear-view mirror.
One of the biggest attractions is that the i20, like all Hyundais, comes with a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty.

This is our pick of the i20 range. There's no need to buy a more powerful engine, and Classic trim provides most of the kit you really need at a bargain price.
