Product Overview

The 3rd-generation Hyundai i20 follows the company's new Sensuous Sportiness design language and is equipped with the most comprehensive connectivity equipment in the subcompact segment (B-segment). A 48-volt mild hybrid system is available with the turbocharged inline-3 engine.
Inside, the i20 features two 10.25" screens visually combined in the dashboard. Its segment-leading Hyundai SmartSense safety package includes enhanced driver assists and security functionalities.
Beyond a more active appearance, the new design gives the i20 more room inside and more visibility to the outside.

Reviewers from autocar have found:
Priced from £24,995 and features a typical modern hot hatch recipe of turbo four, front-wheel drive and six-speed manual. i20 N runs to 201bhp and 207lb ft - figures good enough for 0-62mph in 6.2sec. There’s also an electromechanical limited-slip differential and a rev-matching function.
  • Gorgeous looks
  • Intense performance
  • Not the most fun to drive

Reviewers from autoexpress have found:
The Ford sprints from 0-62mph in 9.4 seconds, one second quicker than the i20. The i20's powertrain is a little more refined, even if it's not as quick. The Fiesta is the only regular supermini you can buy in three-door form. But we'd spend the extra on this more practical five-door model.
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent infotainment tech
  • Good safety tech
  • No automatic emergency braking
  • Less practical than i20

Reviewers from carmagazine have found:
The i20N is the second N car to arrive in Europe (the excellent i30N blazed the trail) and comes from a performance division with a brief but sparkling CV to date. It has 215/40 Bridgestones on 18-inch wheels, bigger brakes (320mm front discs, up 40mm on the standard i20's rotors) and uprated suspension with new springs, dampers and anti-roll bars. Sub the engine for something with more blood and guts; a 16-valve 1.6 turbo making 201bhp and 203lb ft.
  • Powerful turbo four-pot
  • Punchy, punchy acceleration
  • Impressive infotainment
  • Not the most fun to drive
