Hyundai’s i20 is a supermini popular thanks to its practical interior, stylish exterior and excellent five-year warranty. This second-generation model has increased in price over its predecessor but still comes across as good value against the likes of the Volkswagen Polo, Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa.
Here’s a quick guide to the car’s dimensions to help you decide if it’s the right choice for you. We’ll also compare it to its closest rivals to see how it fares.

Hyundai i20 exterior dimensions
The i20 is one of a new breed of superminis that’s grown far beyond the traditional boundaries of what most buyers might consider to be ‘mini’. At over four-metres long, only the new Vauxhall Corsa comes close size-wise and most other superminis are well over 75mm shorter, including the top selling Fiesta. It’s slightly wider than rivals too but, taken as a whole, it still feels like a compact car.

Hyundai i20 interior dimensions
The larger exterior dimensions don’t necessarily translate to the i20’s interior because, although it’s slightly more spacious than most direct rivals, it still lags behind the best in class. In comparison, headroom is around 50mm better than in the Ford Fiesta and legroom is 20mm better but, when you look at the Tardis-like Honda Jazz, you’ll realise rear passengers have a whole 200mm more legroom.
Hyundai i20 boot space
Happily, it seems to be the boot where engineers squeezed most of the i20’s extra space. At 326 litres, it’s larger than even the Ford Focus with the seats up although, again, the Honda Jazz goes one further and offers 354 litres of space. Fold the seats down and the i20 beats the Jazz by a notable 200-litres and vies with the Vauxhall Corsa for biggest overall loadspace.

|Boot space (seats down)||1,042 litres|
Hyundai i20 fuel tank and turning circle
A 50-litre fuel tank is reasonably impressive for this class of vehicle, especially when you consider it equates to a maximum theoretical range of 971 miles with the most economical engine. The 10.2-metre turning circle is also quite impressive – the Corsa and Jazz take 10.8-metres to turn, with only the Fiesta beating it with 10.1 – perfect for tight manoeuvres in city streets.
|Fuel tank||50 litres|
|Turning circle||10.2 metres|
Hyundai i20 weights and towing limits
Vehicles in the supermini class doesn’t tend to use many fancy materials in construction so, on the whole, the Hyundai i20 falls in line with rivals in terms of weight. The Fiesta and Jazz weigh a little less thanks to smaller engines and more compact dimensions, but only 100kg at most. Towing might not be the i20’s natural forte, but limits are reasonably impressive for a supermini – they are only 80kg or so off the lower-powered variants of the i20’s big brother, the Hyundai i30.
