Passengers reap the benefits of the ix20’s lack of driver fulfilment: its soft suspension does a great job of soaking up bumps and potholes in the road. Discomfort can arise, though, when the Hyundai leans in fast corners – more firmly sprung rivals are less prone to this.

The petrol engines are the quietest, with the diesel engines getting a bit noisy under hard acceleration, but all models do a good job of keeping wind and road noise out.

Hyundai ix20 dashboard

The layout of the dashboard is straightforward, with all the controls within reach and easy to understand. All the buttons are a good size and are marked clearly. The plastics used in the dash could do with being a bit softer and nicer to the touch, but having said that, they do feel built to last.

Equipment

All models of the ix20 are well equipped for the price, but you can safely discount the most expensive trim level unless you’re particularly keen on having a panoramic sunroof.

The entry-level SE has air-conditioning and USB connectivity. There are also electric windows, remote control central locking, automatic headlamps and rear parking sensors. 16-inch alloy wheels are fitted as standard, as is a six-speaker stereo with MP3 compatibility.

Upgrading to SE Nav adds a touchscreen infotainment system with sat nav, and a reversing camera. The Premium Nav adds a panoramic sunroof and privacy glass for the rear windows, but we don’t reckon the extra money is worth spending.
