Ownership cost

What used Hyundai i20 hatchback will I get for my budget?

You can buy a Hyundai i20 of this generation for as little as £3500, but we'd advise you to increase your budget to around £5000 for something without galactic mileage. You'll need to spend £6500 or more for a 1.0-litre car, and about £10,000 for one built from 2018 onwards when the design received a facelift.

Diesel examples are rare, and you'll need at least £6000 for one with an average number of miles.

How much does it cost to run a Hyundai i20 hatchback?

MPG

Fuel economy is fair to middling compared with some rivals. The 1.1 diesel is credited with 70.6mpg, while the more popular 1.4 gets 68.8mpg.

The 74bhp 1.2 petrol returns more than the 84bhp version at 60.1mpg and 55.4mpg respectively. The 99bhp 1.0 turbo manages 62.8mpg, while the 118bhp car does 58.9mpg. The worst offender is the 99bhp 1.4 petrol with 51.4mpg.

CO2 emissions

The two diesels post low CO2 emissions of 103 g/km for the 1.1 and 106g/km for the 1.4. 

Of the petrols, the turbocharged 1.0 manages 104g/km in 99bhp form or 112g/km in its most powerful 118bhp guise. The 1.2 puts out 109g/km in 74bhp form or 119g/km as a 83bhp engine. The 99bhp 1.4 is the worst at 127g/km.

Car tax (VED)

Car tax for cars registered before April 2017 is pleasingly low for all models, but those registered after that date will all pay the flat rate. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here for further information.

Servicing and insurance costs

Insurance costs are low, with groups ranging from just 4 up to 11 for the higher powered cars. Servicing costs are reasonable, but you'll need to wait until the car is over five years old and outside the manufacturer's warranty period to take advantage of cheaper servicing costs. These are split into three tiers: basic (£99), interim (£169) and full (£229). All come with a two year parts warranty and 12 months of roadside assistance included in the cost.
