Hyundai’s new i20 will be priced from £8,195 when the five-door version goes on sale in the UK on January 15.
All i20s are equipped with air-conditioning, six airbags, active head restraints, remote locking, electric front windows and an aux-in socket. Customers will also get Hyundai’s five year unlimited mileage warranty.
The mid-range Comfort model – expected to be the best seller and starting at £8,995 – adds 15-inch alloy wheels, body colour door mirrors and handles, electric rear windows, iPod integration, steering wheel mounted audio controls, a trip computer and a six-speaker system.
The flagship Style trim gets 16-inch alloys, climate control, part-leather upholstery, metal-look facia and front fog lights.
The i20 debuts with two new petrol and diesel engines, starting with a 77bhp 1.2-litre petrol which is expected to be the range’s biggest seller. It has a CO2 output of 124g/km and returns 54.3 mpg.
Next up in the range is a 1.4-litre, 99bhp 1.4-litre petrol borrowed from the i30. In the i20 it returns 50.4mpg on the combined cycle and produces 133g/km.
The i20’s new CRDi engines both have a 1.4-litre capacity and offer 74bhp or 89bhp. Emissions and fuel economy figures are at 116g/km and 64.2 mpg for the 74bhp version and 118g/km and 62.8 mpg for the larger-wheeled 89bhp model.
This places both i20 diesels in band ‘B’ for VED, making a tax disc cost of £35 a year.
The first three-door i20s arriving in April.
