2.5 out of 5

The Hyundai ix20 comes with a choice of three engines – two petrols and one diesel. General running costs are unlikely to throw up any nasty surprises, although some models are more economical than others.

Despite being priced to undercut Ford B-MAX and Fiat 500L, the ix20’s long warranty helps it to retain a decent proportion of its value when it comes time to sell later.

Hyundai ix20 MPG and CO2

The cheapest model to run is the 1.6-litre diesel. Its CO2 emissions figure of 115g/km means a 25% Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) company-car tax rating and a promised 64.2mpg will appeal to private and business drivers alike.

Petrol-engined ix20s are less expensive to buy, and that could make them more cost-effective in the long run for those who cover a low annual mileage. The 1.4-litre petrol engine can return 50.4mpg, with 130g/km CO2 emissions for a 25% BiK bracket.

Drivers who need an automatic car have to plump for the 1.6-litre petrol engine, which returns a less creditable 43.5mpg. CO2 emissions also increase notably: a 150g/km rating means a steep 29% BiK rating.

Every ix20 will cost £140 a year for road tax.


All versions of the Hyundai ix20 fall in the range of insurance groups 9 to 13, so cover won’t break the bank. The 1.4-litre SE model is the cheapest to insure, while the 1.6-litre diesel models will cost the most.


The Hyundai ix20 has a generous five-year/unlimited-mileage warranty. This offers more peace of mind than many rival’s warranties, most of which are limited to three years/unlimited mileage.


Hyundai offers fixed-price servicing plans across either three or five years. Plans for petrol and diesel models are priced differently – your Hyundai dealer will be happy to suggest a plan suited to your circumstances.

Every ix20 is scheduled for a service every year or every 10,000 miles, whichever comes sooner. And the services alternate between larger and smaller ones.
