The Next Generation Hyundai i20

The new Hyundai i20 hatchback is here and what a welcome addition it is to the already impressive line-up. This family-friendly compact car combines the finest in urban design with safety, affordability and economy.

Created at the Hyundai design centre in Germany, the all-new Hyundai i20 car strikes the perfect balance between next-gen design and power distribution.

The exterior of the Hyundai i20 top models sees a host of stylish upgrades from halogen headlights to daytime running lights, fog lights, glossy black grill and 16″ alloy wheels on some models.

The interior gives a feeling of premium quality without the hefty price tag and includes the Hyundai i20 base model that gets the black trim as standard. The Hyundai i20 Fluid models also include an upgraded leather steering wheel and gear knob along with a 3.5″ supervision cluster.

In the Hyundai i20 TGDI two-tone models, there is a stylish red and black interior that adds a certain element of luxury and sportiness as well as two-tone exterior paint options.

The new i20 car is so much more than just a pretty face as it offers additional space, comfort, power and economy. Ranging from 61 kW to 89.5 kW with an average of 5.9 litres/100 km, the Hyundai new i20 is perfect for urban driving, solo adventures or travelling with friends and family.

For all the Hyundai i20 specifications on safety, style and performance, please download the 2021 Hyundai i20 brochure.

The Hyundai i20 Epitomises Space Saving Design!

The Hyundai i20 is certainly more than just a pretty face as it also offers additional space with clever interior architecture. Whether you need more room for your family, dogs, surfboard, golf clubs or shopping bags, the new i20 provides you with everything you need.

Even in strong winds and heavy rain, the Hyundai i20 feels safe and secure with the suspension soaking up bumps on rougher roads really well. Add to that the air conditioner as standard and the long list of safety features and you are left with a hatchback that seems purpose-built for South African roads.

Why Should I Buy A Hyundai i20?

Adding to the promise of providing a ‘car for all’, the Hyundai i20 behaves exceptionally well on the road with all variants delivering ample power, stability, responsive steering and a fun all-round drive.

That’s not all though as the price tag will make anyone smile especially considering the extensive list of safety features, driver-assist technologies and elegant but sporty design.

“Sensuous Sportiness” and Versatility Of The Hyundai i20 Platform

“Sensuous Sportiness” is what Hyundai calls the design philosophy behind the new i20. Hyundai has long been a frontrunner in offering practicality, reliability and value but with the new i20, they’ve now added focus on bolder styling, plusher interiors and advanced driver technologies.

Hyundai i20 has a newfound dynamic style that gives it more emotional value than ever before. The car is further bolstered by the strength of its five-year warranty which continues to benefit buyers from all walks of life. You don’t just need the new Hyundai i20, you want it!

These include the Hyundai i20 World Rally Championship Car, the Hyundai Elite i20 SPORTZ (sometimes incorrectly referred to as the Hyundai i20 Sport), and the i20 Active Crossover.

Everything they have learned from designing these variants have helped develop the latest Hyundai i20 and it shows especially when you get behind the wheel.
