New Hyundai to take on Ford FiestaRevised Hyundai i20 pricing revealed
25 April 2012
Hyundai has announced pricing and specification for its revised i20 supermini.
Priced from £9,995, Hyundai’s latest Ford Fiesta rival goes on sale in May this year and boasts claimed efficiency of 84g/km CO2.
Competitive equipment levels
The new i20 will be available in four trim levels: Classic, Blue, Active and Style.
Equipment in entry-level £9,995 Classic guise is fair, featuring six airbags, air conditioning and ESP as standard. Blue trim removes air-con but adds stop-start and low rolling resistance tyres in an effort to improve efficiency.
Upgrading to Active trim costs £950 and adds extras such as 15-inch alloy wheels and a leather steering wheel. And range-topping Style models – priced from £12,345 – come with automatic headlights and wipers and a reversing camera as standard.
Petrol and diesel engines
The i20 will be available with a choice of two petrol and two turbodiesel engines. An 84bhp 1.2 litre petrol is available throughout the range, while the 99bhp 1.4 petrol and 89bhp 1.4 litre turbodiesel are only available in Active or Style trim.
The highlight of the i20’s engine line-up is the new 74bhp 1.1 litre turbodiesel, however. In standard guise it emits 99g/km CO2 – meaning zero car tax (VED) – and returns a claimed 74.3mpg combined.
In Blue trim, these figures are further improved to a claimed 84g/km CO2 and 88.3mpg.
