Updated Hyundai i20 prices and specification announced

Refreshed petrol-only hatchback gets new safety kit; priced from £13,995

he updated Hyundai i10 – a rival to the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa – is on sale now. It boasts new safety and infotainment technology and a starting price of £13,995.

As before, three and five-door versions of Hyundai's refreshed hatchback will be offered, but you're no longer able to buy a diesel-engined version. Instead, buyers can choose from 1.2-litre and turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol engines ranging in power from 74 to 118bhp, with fuel economy of up to 56.5mpg promised.

Hyundai i20 review

The latest i20 is distinguished from its predecessor by more aggressive bumpers front and rear (with the number plate now mounted on the tailgate), new lights all round, a contrasting roof and a selection of fresh alloy-wheel designs for the five-door model. Hyundai's 'cascading' grille makes an appearance and there are a number of bright new colours to choose from, too.

The i20 engine line-up varies between trim levels. Entry-level S cars only get a 74bhp 1.2-litre engine with a five-speed manual gearbox, while SE and Premium Nav can be chosen with a more powerful 84bhp version of the same engine or a 99bhp, turbocharged 1.0-litre in five-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic forms. The range-topping Premium Nav SE can have the 84bhp 1.2-litre or a 118bhp version of the 1.0-litre engine – the latter with a six-speed gearbox. All i20 models have a stop-start engine cutoff system to aid fuel economy.

There are no big design changes for the updated i20's interior, but technology has been boosted across the range: a central seven-inch infotainment screen is standard on all models, and incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. SE adds privacy glass, cruise control and rear parking sensors. Premium Nav and Premium SE Nav add sat nav and a reversing camera, the latter also introducing a panoramic sunroof, heated seats and steering wheel, along with keyless entry and go.

The i20’s safety credentials have also been given a boost, with active safety systems including autonomous emergency braking, lane-keeping assistance, driver attention alert, lane-departure warning and auto-dipping headlights all on offer, either as options or as standard on SE trim and above.

The 1.2-litre S starts at £13,995, the SE ranges from £15,495 for the 84bhp manual to £17,695 for the 118bhp seven-speed automatic, and the Premium Nav runs from £16,245 to £18,395 with the same engine choices. The range-topping Premium Nav SE starts at £17,295 for the 84bhp engine and the 118bhp flagship costs £18,645. Order books are now open.
