Following the announcement of the new model in April, Korean brand Hyundai has now announced the UK pricing of its new i20 5-door. Available to buy now, the new Hyundai i20 5-door will start from £13,995, which is around £350 cheaper than the equivalent Ford Fiesta. The new model is available in four trim levels; S, SE, Premium Nav and Premium Nav SE. All models receive updated styling including a new cascading grille, as well as more technology. You get more safety features and a new automatic gearbox, if you opt for an SE model or higher.
You may think that you’ll be left wanting in the base model, S, but in fact it comes with some nifty features. Standard equipment includes air conditioning, rear view camera, 7″ infotainment system with DAB and smartphone connectivity, plus you also get automatic headlights. Just one engine/gearbox is available with this model, and that’s the 1.2 litre petrol engine, which produces 74bhp and is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
The SE, which starts from £15,495, is able to boast features such as 15″ alloy wheels, front foglights, LED daytime running lights, rear parking sensors, cruise control, electric rear windows as well as a leather steering wheel and leather gearknob.
The SE also offers safety features such as autonomous emergency braking, lane keep assist, driver attention alert and high beam assist. The SE is available with the turbocharged 1.0 litre engine that offers 99bhp, which can either be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox or the new 7-speed DCT automatic.
Starting from a price of £16,245, the Premium Nav offers 16″ alloys, dark grey front grille, LED rear lamps, front and rear parking sensors, rear view camera, climate control, privacy glass, power folding mirrors, 7” Touchscreen Navigation with DAB radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic wipers, auto dimming rear view mirror and front centre arm rest. Engine/gearbox choices mirror that of the SE.
That leaves the range-topping Premium Nav SE, which starts from £17,295, and is able to offer keyless entry, panoramic sunroof as well heated front seats and steering wheel. This model is available with the 1.2 litre 83bhp petrol engine, which is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, or you can have the 1.0 litre turbo which produces 118bhp, and is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
An important model for Hyundai
Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO Hyundai Motor UK said “Alongside the i10, the i20 played a significant part in kick starting Hyundai’s growth, with over 125,000 i20’s sold in the UK since the first generation was launched in 2009. Whilst the small car segment has been a challenging place for all manufacturers over the past few years, we expect the New i20 to build on its predecessor’s solid and stable sales performance by offering customers the mix of connectivity, safety and efficiency that they demand”.
The new Hyundai i20 is available to buy now, with prices starting from £13,995.
