New Hyundai i20 price and specs
The new Hyundai i20 will be available to order in the Autumn. Three trim levels will be available: Advance, Premium and Ultimate, with prices starting from £20,770. All models get just one engine option, a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo petrol paired with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic gearbox.
New Hyundai i20 Advance
Entry-level Advance versions of the i20 come with 16-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, manual air conditioning, a reversing camera and an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This will set you back £20,770 if you go for the manual gearbox, or £22,020 if the auto takes your fancy.
New Hyundai i20 Premium
Stepping up to the premium model will set you back £22,570 for the manual, or £23,820 for the automatic. Splashing the extra cash gets you 17-inch alloy wheels, interior ambient lighting, climate control, heated seats and steering wheel and a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen.
New Hyundai i20 Ultimate
Range-topping Ultimate versions of the new i20 come with an electric sunroof, Bose premium sound system, wireless phone charging and keyless entry and start. This version will cost you £24,070 for the six-speed manual, or £25,320 for the automatic.
New Hyundai i20 design
The new Hyundai i20 hasn’t been given a radical makeover, however there are some subtle changes to keep it looking modern.
The grille has been slimmed-down a bit, which is the opposite of what a lot of manufacturers are doing right now, and the lower bumper has been given a tweak as well.
There are a couple of new alloy wheel designs, starting at 16 inches and going up to 17 inches. You also have a new selection of colours to choose from, including this eye-catching lime green.
The rear gets a tweaked bumper and some funky Z-shaped LED tail lights, but that’s about it. The design is certainly unique, if a bit polarising.
New Hyundai i20 interior and infotainment
The overall cabin design hasn’t changed in the Hyundai i20, but there is some new technology in board. You now get an improved 4.2-inch screen in the gauge cluster as standard, or you can upgrade it to a 10.25-inch digital driver’s display.
You also get a 10.25-inch infotainment system as an option, just like on the current car, and it has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A Bose premium audio system is included on top-spec cars as well.
New Hyundai i20 engines
The new Hyundai i20 has a simplified engine range over the outgoing car because there’s only one option, a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit putting out 100hp.

It can be paired to either a seven-speed automatic gearbox or a six-speed “Intelligent Manual Transmission”. This can disconnect the engine from the gearbox when you release the accelerator to save fuel.
