New lower emission 1.1 litre diesel Hyundai i20

22 April 2012


Write a Review about the Hyundai i20

Following its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show, Hyundai UK has announced full pricing and specification for the New i20.  Prices for i20 start at £9,995 on-the-road for the three-door 1.2 petrol Classic model, while at the other end of the spectrum the range-topping 90ps 1.4 CRDi Style model costs £14,295.


  To further enhance the i20’s appeal, Hyundai’s designers have given the car an attractive exterior makeover that features new wheel designs plus a hexagonal front grille that is in keeping with Hyundai’s current fluidic sculpture design. Further design changes to the front end include new rounded front wings while the reshaped bonnet and headlights continue the theme along with new fog light clusters and daytime running lights. Moving to the rear, the New i20 gets a redesigned rear bumper and taillights, which helps to add to the i20’s fresh approach.

Inside, the New i20 majors on quality with soft-touch plastics, a revised and classier centre consol along with updated seat trims.

The New i20 is available in three main trim levels beginning with Classic, moving up to Active and followed by Style. Starting with Classic, each model comes with a generous list of standard specification including remote central locking, six air bags, air conditioning, ESP and, for the first time on i20, Vehicle Stability Management.

Hyundai has added in even more value to the i20 package with the Active trim, which adds 15-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth with voice recognition, electric/heated door mirrors, front fog lights, leather steering wheel and gear knob and electric rear windows (five door bodystyle) when compared with Classic.

The range-topping Style model is equipped with16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, rain sensing front wipers, climate control along with an automatic dimming rear view mirror with an integrated reversing camera – the first standard application of this technology in the segment.

These standard features are traditionally only found on bigger and more luxurious cars as optional extras, but with the New i20 they are all part of the overall package.

Buyers wanting even higher levels of technology and features can order the Convenience Pack, which encompasses keyless entry, engine Start/Stop button, chrome exterior door handles and supervision cluster. Hyundai has improved upon the popular 1.2-litre petrol engine, which is now cleaner, more efficient and more powerful than the model it replaces. Maximum output is now 85ps (79ps for the outgoing variant) while improvements in fuel consumption from 55.4mpg to 57.7mpg on the combined cycle, plus emissions reductions from 119g/km CO2 to 114g/km CO2 make the 1.2 petrol engine one of the most efficient around.

Headlining i20’s eco-credentials is the Blue variant, which is powered by Hyundai’s ultra-efficient 1.1-litre “U-ll” three-cylinder diesel engine that combined with Intelligent Stop and Go and low rolling resistance tyres emits a mere 84g/km – making it the lowest-emitting diesel engine in the UK. Coupled with low emissions, the i20 Blue is capable of returning 88.3mpg on the combined cycle.
