Practicality & boot space Rating

4.0 out of 5

The growth of the Hyundai i20 platform means the car is now more practical than ever thanks to excellent rear legroom and one of the largest boots in its class.

The i20 is fairly easy to park, with decent visibility and standard rear parking sensors on the SE trim level. A reversing camera is fitted to all models.

Hyundai i20 interior space & storage

The latest i20 is longer, lower and wider than before, so the inside of the car is really spacious. There’s plenty of space for rear-seat passengers – all but the tallest or widest people will be able to sit comfortably three abreast on the back seats. Rear legroom is the best in the supermini class. The optional panoramic sunroof slightly compromises headroom, but even then it’s still good enough to rival that of the Ford Fiesta. Elsewhere, the door bins are generously sized and the glovebox is deep.

Boot space

The boot of the i20 can hold 326 litres, making it one of the largest in this class, beating the 280 litres of the Volkswagen Polo and 286 litres of the Vauxhall Corsa. The shape of the boot is wide and deep and its lip is only marginally pronounced, making it relatively easy to slide awkward items in. SE, Premium and Premium SE cars come with a variable-height boot floor that can be folded and stored inside the car if necessary.

Towing

The 1.2-litre petrol models have a towing capacity of 910kg while opting for the 1.0-litre petrol model means you can tow 1,000kg, or 1,110kg in the most powerful 118bhp version. The 99bhp 1.0 T-GDi model with the seven-speed automatic has a lower towing capacity – just 800kg.
