HYUNDAI i20 · photos, packages and modifications

There was a model introduced in the market in order to compete with the Ford Fiesta and Suzuki Swift, namely as the Hyundai i20. This car became as one of the stars of the efficient Scrappage scheme along with the big sales hit in the UK market. The main reason for the efficient sales was the great value for money price, five-year warranty and the generous interior space options. In 2012, the face lifted version of this model was introduced in order to keep it as the fresh one along with the new look and some subtle tweaks to the gearboxes as well as engines. It was available with choice of four specifications that too in three and five-door body styles option. Even though there was a wide range of engines available to select with, this model worked well with the new 17 bhp 1.1-liter three-cylinder diesel, which would probably produce just 84 g/km of CO2. The engine was also able to return 88.3 mpg that made it as the most efficient combustion-engine car on sale today.

Compared to the competitors including the Curvy Suzuki Swift, Ford Fiesta and the Peugeot 208 models, Hyundai i20 was not treated as the most stylish super mini on the market. Because of the competitors, it became as the blend into the background. In 2012, there were number of updates made with the model along with the improved matters. The efficient and biggest styling changes were made with the help of new fluidic sculpture design language and that too at the front. The changes were a new sculpted bonnet, hexagonal grille at the front and detailed headlights. In order to provide i20 with the look of more grown-up one, Hyundai designed it as the 55 mm longer car. Because of the piano-black inserts around the stereo and a smart center console, the interior became as well laid out one. Even though some of the trims available in the model were looked like flimsy, touches of the car were similar to the slim trip computer that was integrated into the top of the dashboard with the outdated look. The car came with Active, Classic, Blue and Style specifications, which allowed the customers to select from any one along with the plenty of kit options. Air conditioning and electric front windows were normally fitted into the entry-level classic cars and Blue car models were in need to come up with some makeovers.

In the case of handling features, i20 couldn't be able to match the Ford Fiesta model. But, i0 had its own strengths to manage the handling. Most important thing need to be considered is about the refinement option that too especially in the case of motorway speeds. The steering was designed in such a way to offer light feel for town use. But, it normally weighed up inconsistently when turn into the corners and hence there would be a lack in feel along with the little firm ride. This car had the engine option as two petrol engines and two diesel engines. Even though 1.2-liter four-cylinder petrol that was capable of offering 84 bhp was the best one and cheap to buy, it was more efficient to avoid because of the rough sounds and very slow response. Because of this reason, it is efficient to go with the 99 bhp 1.4-liter petrol that was capable of offering more responsive and easy drive option. In the case of new three-cylinder 1.1 CRDI diesel, it requires more acceleration to deliver the high performance along with the best refinement and the larger 89 bhp 1.4 diesel was capable of providing its best when pulls it strongly.

In 2009, the Hyundai 120 model was tested back for the Euro NCAP crash test that would probably be resulted with the full five-star score. This was achieved along with the 88 percent for adult protection and 86 percent in the case of safety assist. This model was fitted with the standard electronic stability control across the range including the efficient features of a total of six airbags, anti-lock brakes, active head restraints and Isofix child-seat fixings. In the case of reliability, the i20 model positioned 59th in the 2012 Driver Power Survey. This position was two places behind i10 model and six places ahead of the Ford Fiesta, but overall Hyundai made its seventh position. Most of the owners said that, this was the one with plenty of technology and low running costs. But, all those things would not probably provide it with easy to drive and comfortable option as they desire.

The i20 is treated as one of the longest and widest super minis available along with the 3,995 mm long, 1,490 mm tall and 1,710 mm wide as its best, which would probably provide it more interior space. Because of this, it can provide enough space for three adults to sit comfortably in the back seats along with plenty of boot space. The boot space is up to 295-liter in i20, which is normally more than both the VW Polo and Ford Fiesta and that too in all kinds of body styles. When the rear seats are folded, the figure could probably be increased to a massive 1,060 liter. Since there is one downside option available, you can easily fold the rear seats and you can even remove the headrests too. It is also efficient to get comfortable behind the wheel, even though there is option available for driver seat adjustment with height and the steering wheel has the option to reposition for height and reach in a reliable way. All versions of this car came up with the standard space-saver spare wheel.
