The new Hyundai i20 arrives in the showrooms on the 7th May 2012, with prices starting at £9,995 for the three-door 1.2 petrol Classic model and raise to £14,295 for the top of the range 90ps 1.4 CRDi Style.
The Hyundai i20 engine line up comprises four engines options, two petrol and two diesels.
Hyundai have worked hard to lower fuel consumption and decrease CO2 emissions – for example there is a 1.1-litre “U-ll” three-cylinder diesel engine with Hyundai’s Intelligent Stop and Go technology and low rolling resistance tyres which emits 84g/km – making it the lowest-emitting diesel engine in the UK. According to Hyundai, the i20 Blue is capable of returning 88.3mpg on the combined cycle.
The 1.2-litre petrol engine is now cleaner, more efficient and more powerful than the model it replaces. Maximum output is now 85ps (79ps for the outgoing variant) while improvements in fuel consumption from 55.4mpg to 57.7mpg on the combined cycle, plus emissions reductions from 119g/km CO2 to 114g/km CO2.
