The i20 really stands out from the crowd with crisp lines, a distinctive grille, stylish lighting in the front and rear, and daytime running lights as standard on all models. There are several wheel designs available, with 15-inch alloy wheels on the SE edition and 16-inch on the PSE trim. The Premium and Premium SE trims have an extra touch of sophistication with tinted glass in the tailgate and rear side windows, and feature side mouldings. You also have the choice of several bold exterior colours, including Aqua Sparkling.
The cabin has a neat layout, designed with your comfort and convenience in mind. You will find plenty of storage pockets and compartments, including bottle holders and a chilled glove box, perfect for keeping your drinks cool in hot weather. Stylish touches have been incorporated in the interior design, such as chrome-effect door handles. There’s plenty of room for both passengers and luggage, and if you find it hard to travel light, you can fold the rear seats in a 40:60 split to increase your boot space.
Petrol engines include the 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre units, or you could choose from a 1.1-litre or 1.4-litre diesel. For a sportier option, go for one of the 1.0-litre turbocharged engines. The 1.1-litre Blue manual diesel CRDi has the lowest CO₂ emissions at 84g/km, making it exempt from road tax
The i20 has all the safety features you would expect such as ABS, ESP and a set of six airbags. Additional features include hill start assist and sensors for auto door unlocking in the event of an impact. Children are kept safe in the rear thanks to childproof locks and ISOFIX seat fittings.
Steering wheel-mounted controls allow you to play music and adjust settings quickly and safely, and also operate the cruise control and make calls on the SE trim level and up. The entry-level editions have radio with MP3 compatibility and two speakers, and all models have USB and AUX connection. Choosing the SE trim and above will get you an upgrade to a DAB radio, six speakers, Bluetooth and rear parking sensors. Your i20 is of course backed by Hyundai’s unlimited mileage five-year warranty.
The Hyundai i20 is the winner of the Golden Steering Wheel 2015.
