2012 Hyundai i20 1.2 85 review

The i20 has been given some tweaks, including updated and foglights, and a hexagonal grille brings it into line the rest of Hyundai’s model .

The rear end gets redesigned and a new bumper, while the interior has an centre console, plusher and fresh seat fabrics.

not just the i20’s looks have been cleaned up – the are now more efficient. The 1.2-litre engine in our test car, for now does an average of 57.7mpg, an of 2.3mpg.

What’s the 2012 Hyundai i20 to drive?

The engine produces – compared with the previous 77bhp – but it still takes its to get the i20 up to speed, and you’ll need to it hard to get there.

You’ll be hard to notice the differences on the redesigned but all the controls are simply laid out and to use.

The large windows and seating position give you a view out, although drivers may feel like perched up a bit too high.

Your won’t have much for complaint, though, because enough space for four to sit comfortably. The boot is also a size for the class.

Should I buy one?

The i20 is an affordable car to and the increased efficiency means pay less to run it.

Don’t think Hyundai is stingy with either. Entry-level Classic get remote central locking, electric front windows, control and six airbags; Active adds alloys, Bluetooth and rear windows. Style get climate control, automatic and wipers, and a reversing camera.
