Hyundai has created a low CO2 version of its i20 emitting 98g/km of CO2 priced at £13,195.
The new model is on sale now and follows from the Korean brand’s launch of its i10 Blue which went on sale at the start of this year.
The i20 Blue is congestion charge exempt and it’s in band A for vehicle excise duty which means a £0 first year rate and £0 standard rate of VED tax.
The i20 Blue is based on the current i20 Comfort trim level mated to the 1.4 CRDi 88bhp engine.
To achieve the sub-100g/km CO2 figures, the i20 Blue has the following Blue Drive technologies: Intelligent Stop & Go (ISG), low rolling resistance tyres, rear suspension under cover and rear wheel deflector. With these additional features, the i20 Blue achieves a 12% reduction in CO2 emissions from 111g/km down to just 98g/km.
The 1.4 CRDi Euro V compliant four-cylinder engine can achieve 76.4mpg. Hyundai says the i20 Blue has an approximate range of 755 miles on a full tank of diesel.
Standard equipment includes 15-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth connectivity with voice recognition, electric heated and folding door mirrors, electric front and rear windows, steering wheel audio controls, USB and aux connections air conditioning and remote central locking.
