Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Hyundai i20 hatchback?

Hyundai i20s are generally pretty well looked-after by their owners, but clutches seem to wear remarkably rapidly on many examples, so it’s worth checking that the clutch works as it should, that it’s easy to select all the gears, and that the gearbox feels smooth.

Also keep an eye out for poorly repaired accident damage, which could cause rust in unusual places. Only very badly cared-for i20s should be rusting by now, so walk away from a car which is starting to exhibit corrosion.
