For The Hyundai i20 is cheap to buy, costs peanuts to run and comes with plenty of kit. Safety is top-drawer, and the car feels impressively civilised for the money you pay.
Against It's not as much fun to drive as some other cars in the class, and the dull cabin won't set your heart racing
Even if it’s not the most enthralling car to drive, the Hyundai i20 offers you a lot of space and equipment for your money.

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.
