New i20 makes a good Korea move

December 10, 2014

Hyundai hopes small hatchback new i20 – will be car you want, not just one you need.

From last couple of years, Hyundai has gone from budget brand to credible rival to Ford and Vauxhall, and latest new models offering should worry both.

The new Hyundai i20 has been designed to appeal to buyers for sensible reasons, such as being keenly priced and spacious, and also from emotional ones, based around of its styling and clever-in-car tech.

HOW IT IS LOOK LIKE?New Hyundai i20

I think, the new i20 looks more stylist and smart than ever as the Hyundai have given bit low, wide stance and slopping roofline. It will get LED daytime running lights, emergency stop signal, hill start assist control, auto door locking, courtesy function, remote central locking, mp3, radio, anti lock braking system and tyre pressure monitoring as standard to all the i20 models.

WHAT IS IT LIKE INSIDE?

This is where the i20 excels. There is loads of space front and rear, so four adults will fit in total comfort – and even five won’t feel squeezed. The big boot is a decent shape, and it comes with an adjustable height floor to divide the space on SE versions and above. i20 offers 295 litres space which is bigger than what you get in either the Vauxhall Corsa(285 litres space) or Ford Fiesta(276 litres space), which could expand up to 1,060 litres by folding rear seats down.

WHAT IS IT LIKE TO DRIVE?

The 1.4 litre petrol engine feels extremely smooth and quite at low speeds. The suspension deals well with speed bumps and long undulations. The steering handling is also good and overall it offers very fun to drive feeling. i20 is seriously one of the all-rounder small family car that you should consider before to go ahead.

SHOULD I GET ON LEASE?

The Hyundai i20 is very sensible, smart and well-priced supermini hatchback that has lots of space and is well-equipped too.

The new generation model of Hyundai i20 price starts from £8,388.93 OTR and arrives to UK early next year. The new i20 will available on lease soon, however you can check the current Hyundai i20 lease prices here.
