The Hyundai i20 is a solid all-rounder with the ability to please many potential buyers. It’s roomy, reasonably well equipped, has a nicely fashioned interior, should holds its value well and offers good performance and economy. The main caveats are that it’s quite pricey next to the bulk of the small car class, it’s not as comfortable as the Volkswagen Polo nor as sporty to drive as the Ford Fiesta.
The trimSee full equipment
We’d suggest sticking with the entry-level SE Connect trim for the best balance of kit for your cash. It has most of what you might want, including an 8.0in infotainment screen, digital instruments, a DAB radio, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto, rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, air-con, a leather steering wheel and gearlever, automatic lights and wipers, cruise control, electric windows and mirrors and 16in alloy wheels.
The engineSee full engine specs
Mild hybrid means there’s a very small electric motor and battery, which adds a little electrical ‘kick’ to the engine as you drive around. All you’ll be aware of is that it pulls from about 1800rpm, feels hearty in the mid range, and, while it doesn’t feel hugely energetic in the final furlongs of the rev counter, it gets over the 0-62mph-line in 10.4sec. Or in other words, there’s plenty of poke for town or country driving. Officially it'll do up to 55.4mpg and 115g/km of CO2, which is good for the class.
