You get an elevated driving position; some people may wish that the seat and steering wheel had a wider range of adjustment, though. The heavily styled centre console can look a little daunting, but the buttons are all big and clearly marked. Pity the thick front pillars badly restrict your view.
Hyundai ix20 space & practicality
There’s lots of cabin space for a supermini-sized car, thanks to the tall body; the boot is also big, and the rear seats can be slid forward or folded flat when you need even more luggage room. You have to shift the adjustable boot floor to its highest setting if you want a level load area when the seats are folded, but this is easy to do. It all works quite well, but it's nothing revolutionary.
Hyundai ix20 equipment
Even entry-level Classic models come with air-conditioning, remote central locking, electric front windows and a CD player with a USB socket. However, you have to upgrade to Active trim to get electric rear windows, Bluetooth, alloy wheels and parking sensors. Range-topping Style cars add a panoramic sunroof, rear privacy glass and front foglights.
