My wife and myself were immediately taken with the look of the ix20 after our first ever trip to a Hyundai dealer when we were thinking of changing our car, we arranged a test drive on the spot and were very impressed with the equipment levels and how quiet the 1.4 petrol engine is, for a small car the amount of space you get inside seems huge and the higher driving position makes it so easy to get in and out of, as we are retired this is of great benefit to us. The car we had before was a 1.6 Fiesta and we put the ix20 ride,finish and comfort well above that and we wonder why we had never tried Hyundai before. We give this car four or five stars across the board and cannot believe that “what car” have only given it two stars. My average fuel consumption is about 38mpg, but my annual mileage is low,the use is very short trips around town. About town driving is excellent. The Seats are very supportive and comfortable with a lot of adjustment. The rear fold down seats are great and very easy to use and by raising or lowering the rear floor cover you can have a totally flat loading area. If you do short trips like we do then the ISG can be a bit hit and miss as the battery has to be charged above 80% to work along with other requirement‘s, not a problem to us as I prefer not to have it switched on, cannot get used to the engine stopping and starting at traffic lights. In summary a great little car,comfortable,efficient and would we buy another one,yes we would.
