The Hyundai i20 has always been good value. Throw in discounts of up to 20%, though, and it becomes a real bargain. These are the best deals on this well-equipped, practical and comfortable small car.
Hyundai is known for producing sensible and good-value cars, and the Hyundai i20 is no different. List prices start at a competitive £10,000, but online discounts slash this to just over £8,000, giving you a lot of car for the money. Despite the low prices, the i20 comes with a long list of standard equipment and a five-year warranty for added peace of mind.
More than just being cheap to buy, the i20 should also be cheap to run. And when you come to sell it, you should get a good proportion of the price back. Access to the car is very easy and the seats are comfortable, too. You also get a reasonably large boot.
New Hyundai i20 1.2 Classic 5-dr for £8,500
If you’re after the best-value i20, this is it. Thanks to a 20% discount, this new car could be yours for £8,491. Although this is the entry-level i20, you still get air conditioning, a trip computer, six airbags, driver’s seat height adjustment and a two-way adjustable steering column – so you should be able to get comfortable behind the wheel.
Other goodies include an air-conditioned glovebox for keeping food and drinks cool, plus USB and auxiliary connections so you can listen to music straight from your phone. With a 1.2-litre petrol engine under the bonnet, the car feels nippy and returns claimed fuel economy of 57.6mpg.
Save 18% on Hyundai i20 1.1 CRDi Active diesel
Thanks to claimed fuel economy of 74.3mpg, the i20 1.1 CRDi Active should be even cheaper to run than the petrol model. While this car would set you back £12,740 from a Hyundai dealer, we’ve found it online for just £10,422 – a saving of £2,318.
This i20 also produces low enough CO2 emissions to qualify for free car tax. Acceleration is sluggish, however, with the car requiring 15.7 seconds to accelerate to 62mph. In Active specification you get the same equipment as the car above, plus electric rear windows, 15-inch alloy wheels and Bluetooth, so you can use your phone on the move.
£2,616 discount on Hyundai i20 1.4 CRDi Style diesel
We’ve found an 18% discount on the Hyundai i20 1.4 CRDi in top-of-the-range Style specification. With 1.4-litre diesel engine, this car returns fuel economy of 65.7mpg (claimed), meaning fuel bills should be low. It isn’t the most sprightly of models, requiring 13.5 seconds to hit 62mph, but you do get lots of standard equipment for your money.
This i20 has many ‘big car’ features as standard, such as a reversing camera, rear parking sensors, climate control air-con, automatic headlights and automatic wipers. In Style trim the i20 also boasts snazzy 16-inch alloy wheels.

Hot Car Deal hunters please note:
- The car brokers and deals featured are not vetted, endorsed or recommended by Which?. Always check the specifics of the deal so you know exactly what you are getting and who is supplying the car. Make sure all aspects of the deal are confirmed in writing before committing to buy.
- Not all brokers deal in UK sourced vehicles, and this may have an impact on standard equipment and warranty levels.
- The term ‘pre-reg’ or ‘pre-registered’ refers to vehicles that are brand new but already registered with the DVLA. This means that you will appear as the second owner on the V5 registration document.
- Beware of unscrupulous brokers who tell you they will have to retain the V5 registration document for a period of time after your purchase of the car. Vehicles sold this way may be cheap, but there are legal implications, including the risk that you the buyer could be committing a criminal offence when you drive the car, so they should be avoided.
