What should I look for in a used Hyundai i20 hatchback?
Check the car at the front and rear for scuff marks and dents, possibly picked up in tight supermarket car parks. It’s also worth looking at the alloy wheels for any kerb damage. Reported problems are few, although non-engine electrics have been noted by some owners as causing trouble.
In our most recent reliability survey the i20 finished in a commendable eighth place in the small car class, with an overall score of 88%. Hyundai as a brand finished in an excellent seventh place out of 32 manufacturers. The i20 also benefits from a five-year transferable warranty from new.
