Some things in life require compromises. Thankfully, though,
the Hyundai ix20 combines big car practicality with small car manoeuvrability
so there’s no need to ‘make do’. As easy
on the eye as it is aerodynamic, the Hyundai ix20 features the ‘Fluidic
Sculpture’ design, so you'll find smooth curves and flowing lines instead of
The Hyundai ix20’s design stands out with newly-designed bi-function projector headlamps and LED rear combination lamps, a new hexagonal front grille – Hyundai’s brand signature. There are two versions on offer – a mesh- or bars-type with chrome finishing. To further enhance its dynamic exterior, there is a new 15-inch wheel cover design and new 16- and 17-inch alloy wheel options.
Inside, the ix20 delivers the same space and versatility as before, with outstanding front seat room (head, shoulder and legroom). The quality and style of the interior extends to the soft touch feel of the dashboard and a perfectly positioned, intuitive centre console. The cool blue illumination of the instrument panel soothes the eye on night time drives.
The 4115 mm long car’s unusually long wheelbase for its class (2615 mm) plus 1600 mm high roofline allows a spacious and practical interior, more typical of larger C-segment vehicles – an impression which can be enhanced by an optional tilt/slide dual-panel panoramic glass sunroof.
Apart from an impressive class-leading 440-litre boot (seats up) outstanding versatility comes from sliding ‘dive and fold’ rear seats allowing up to1486 litres’ luggage capacity. The ix20 has been specifically designed with ease of access in mind. Front seats are positioned higher up for a more comfortable driving position. The dual height boot also helps to reduce straining when lifting heavy objects in or out.

To uphold the Hyundai ix20’s class competitiveness, a new six-speed automatic transmission, as well as power and torque upgrades to the overall Euro6 emissions-compliant engine line-up brings even better drivability, with lower fuel consumption and emissions.
The ix20 can carry the whole family in comfort without generating family-sized running costs. The i.6 CRDi, engine for example, delivers impressive fuel efficiency with CO2 emissions of 115 g/km. This could mean longer gaps between fuel stops and no road tax in the first year.
The two diesel engines have been enhanced to provide more torque – 240 Nm (1.4-litre) and 260 Nm (1.6-litre) – from just 1,500 rpm.
The Continuous Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) 1.4- and 1.6-litre petrol Hyundai ‘Gamma’ family units have both had efficiency boosted, with the 1.6-litre now available with a six-speed automatic transmission, replacing the previous four-speed unit and delivering improved real-world fuel economy.
All engines have been enhanced to offer improved driveability and fuel efficiency, as well as meeting Euro6 emission standards. To optimise its environmental performance, the Hyundai ix20 Blue Drive features Integrated Stop & Go (ISG), low rolling-resistance tyres, an alternator management system (AMS) and a drag-reducing ‘active air flap’ in the front grille.
A heated steering wheel and a new generation audio system have been installed to increase comfort. The new audio system comes with iPod connectivity and integrated My Music (1GB storage) as well as a USB and AUX connection further increases the comfort and pleasure in the ix20.
In terms of connectivity, every ix20 features Bluetooth while SE Nav and Premium Nav offer touch screen satellite navigation, ensuring you’re getting to your destinations the easiest way.
You can ease into those tight spots with confidence as the reversing sensors provide extra assistance when parking.
SE Nav and Premum Nav also include a parking camera display within the touch screen display.
The Hyundai ix20's intelligent safety features are always ready to react to changing road conditions. Anti-lock Brakes and Electronic Brake Force Distribution enhance braking control, while Electronic Stability Programme can also apply subtle adjustments to the throttle to keep you in control.
Fitted with 6 airbags including front, front side and curtain bags, you can rest assured you and your passengers will always have the best protection when it matters most.
