Equipment and practicality have been two feathers in the i20's cap throughout its history, and that remains the case here. It has a big boot and the interior is large enough for couples, or families with a child at a push.

Hyundai i20 interior space & storage

Most vehicles have grown in recent years, and when you consider that four six-foot tall adults can sit fairly comfortably in the i20, you could argue superminis can't really get much bigger without treading on the toes of family cars.

The impressive rear legroom will also come in very handy for parents with a bulky child seat, making it possible to fit it into the ISOFIX mounting points without having to slide the front seats all the way forwards.

Boot space

Sitting vacant behind the back seats, there's 352 litres of luggage space waiting to be filled up. That's very close to what you get in a Ford Focus (375 litres) or Volkswagen Golf (380 litres), while also very competitive in the supermini crowd. The Ford Fiesta is smaller with 311 litres, the Volkswagen Polo has 351 litres and the Renault Clio is bigger, with up to 391 litres in the petrol version. 

The boot is uniformly shaped and there's an adjustable floor that can be raised or lowered. There's quite a lot of space below the floor that could be used for extra storage but at the bottom of this underfloor area is the battery pack and anything you put in there will rest directly on top of it. It may not be a good location for wet shoes or anything than might leak!
