A firm favourite in the small SUV class, the ix20 is not short on style, and it gives you all the space you need for travelling with the family.
The theme of the ix20’s exterior is all fluid lines and curves, from the smoothly sculpted panels to the swept-back headlights. The sleek sloping windscreen stretches up to give the height you need for optimal comfort for you and your passengers. 16-inch alloys and body-coloured bumpers add to the stylish appearance.
When you get inside the ix20, you’ll hardly believe that it has the same footprint as a small family car. There is ample space to accommodate five people, and thanks to the clever design which gives plenty of height, even your taller passengers will have enough headroom. Rear seats can be pushed forwards or folded down to provide additional storage space when you have a lot of luggage or large items to stow. Add to the sense of space by opting for the Premium trim, which features a panoramic glass sunroof. If you want to let in some air, just open the sunroof using the electric slide and tilt mechanism.
Bluetooth connectivity is provided in all models. Reversing sensors are fitted across the range, making parking and manoeuvring in tight spaces much easier.
The ix20 is available with a choice of petrol or diesel engines. There are two efficient petrol options, the 1.4-litre Blue Drive and the 1.6-litre available with automatic transmission. The 1.6-litre CRDi diesel scores best for economy, with CO₂ emissions of just 115g/km, meaning the vehicle is exempt from road tax for the first year. Blue drive technology includes intelligent Stop and Go, which helps to reduce emissions and fuel consumption by switching the engine off instead of idling in a traffic jam.
Opt for the SE Nav or Premium Nav edition and you will get a touchscreen satellite navigation system, so you can say goodbye to that tatty old road atlas. The touchscreen also displays images from the parking camera which is fitted as standard on these models.
Safety features such as ESP, ABS and Electronic Brakeforce Differential come as standard. There are ISOFIX anchors on the outer seats in the back, and you can deactivate the front passenger airbag if you need to have a small child travel in the front seat. The ix20 has been given a five star safety rating in the Euro NCAP programme.
The ix20 was the winner of the Value-for-money car survey 2013, conducted by Which? Car, and has previously been named Best Super Mini MPV by Auto Express.
