Hyundai i20 Review
While some cars are geared towards singles and some at families, the i20 (or the Hyundai 120 as it is sometimes mistakenly called) has proven to be a favourite with all. But is it the street-savvy hatch’s sleek and trendy design, it’s surprisingly spacious cabin or it’s all-in-one package promise that gives it all-round appeal? It’s hard to say, but young and old would likely agree that it’s a little of all of the above.
If appearances are important to you, the Hyundai i20 won’t disappoint. It’s a looker by any standards though it’s not a show-off. Its elegant European-style contours coupled with its wide and low stance imbue the i20 with a design that’s not likely to date any time soon. But there’s more to this modern yet sophisticated hatch than meets the eye…
The i20 is Big Where You Need it Most!
Whether you need space for your friends, your family, your dog, your shopping or your sports gear, the i20 provides you with plenty of exactly what you want and then some! Yes, the i20 is a hatch, but it offers more room than most cars, in fact its boot space is considered best in its class so you can load up your luggage, pets and family with ease. Add to this clever little storage nooks, comfy seating for 5 occupants and exceptional legroom, and you’ve got a family car that helps to create happy passengers on even the longest of road trips.
The i20 is Built for South African Roads
Congested city commuting or cross-country traveling, the i20 makes light of any journey. Its aerodynamic design coupled with a well-insulated cabin reduces outside noise to an absolute minimum and allows you to fully enjoy the i20’s 6-speaker radio/CD/mp3 audio system. At the same time a state-of-the-art cooling and heating system helps to ensure that the optimum cabin temperature is maintained at all times. And for the driver it’s good to know that all your occupants, including yourself, are protected via the i20’s extensive line-up of outstanding safety measures.
Why Buy a Hyundai i20?
Echoing its ‘car for all’ promise is the i20’s behaviour on the road. Both the 1.2L and 1.4L models offer power, stability, quick steering response and an ultimately fun drive. Plus, it’s low on fuel consumption and carbon emissions. So you get to enjoy car of your dreams and easy on your wallet at the same time. Better yet, its price tag will make you smile – we guarantee it!
More to the i20 than Meets the Eye
Although there are currently 6 trim levels of Hyundai i20 available in South Africa, namely the 1.2 Fluid, 1.2 Motion, 1.4 Fluid MT, 1.4 Fluid AT and the 1.4 N Series, the versatility of the platform on which the i20 is built has enabled Hyundai Engineers to create a number of different variants overseas. 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. All of the lessons learned in creating these variants have gone into helping create an even better next generation Hyundai i20, and even though many of these changes cannot always be seen, they most certainly can be felt each and every time you get behind the wheel of a Hyundai i20.
