Hyundai ix20 Review

The Hyundai ix20 keeps up with the growing demand for a car that not only drives in style, but also squeezes every other necessity into one compact package. This model doesn’t just satisfy such a demand with its easy drive and compact shape, but also assures passengers maximum comfort in its spacious interior. You might notice that many of the ix20’s components are shared with the Kia Venga—it’s a given since they both come from the same factory. But Hyundai assures consumers its distinct quality by refining it for UK roads and in effect providing unmatched comfort from the South Korean company. 

Pros

The ix20 comes with two petrol units and one diesel for its engine range. The entry-level 1.4-litre petrol at 89bhp is the most popular choice among buyers. Its five-speed manual gearbox enables a 12.9 seconds time for its 62mph sprint. Plus the entry-level unit boasts of an impressive top speed at 114mph. The more powerful petrol unit is the 1.6-litre unit at 123bhp; this one is partnered with a four-speed automatic gearbox. The diesel engine is just as impressive with its 1.4 CRDi at 89bhp and its maximum speed at 104mph and its 14.5 seconds acceleration into 62mph. Although the diesel unit doesn’t deliver much low-down, it is able to go along motorway speeds easily. Plus the gearing enables you to stay on high gear but without having to reduce your drive to a low speed for the sake of economy.

Steering is light and nice along low speeds, making the ix20 ideal for driving around the city and moving through small areas. You won’t have any problems enjoying this car for daily trips to and from work.

The ix20 is much longer than the Ford Fiesta by 200mm, providing passengers more than enough headroom via its high roofline. Even the rear offers ample legroom. Adults taller than six feet will have no problems enjoying a long journey while seated at the back. Boot space is also impressive at 440 litres when all seats are out. The space expands to 1,486 litres once the seats are folded down. The boot also offers extra storage in its hidden storage unit, which is helpful for anyone in need of extra space for their shopping bags. There are also stowage compartments for drink bottles and for smaller items such as loose change or your phone.

Visibility is clear and complete all throughout thanks to the A-pillars’ added glass and the large windscreen. Little wind and road noise is heard in the cabin, and the instrument layout simple and easy to navigate.

Cons

The ix20 is an adequate performer along city roads, but the vehicle lacks that sharpness for a turn in. Body roll can also be felt at a fraction, but is a natural effect from the car’s height. Although speed oriented drivers won’t arrive at the thrill they’re after in the ix20, the vehicle delivers what it promises to its target market and what it can provide given its equipment. This Hyundai model is a practical investment for anyone in search of a long term everyday vehicle that can drive them through a city.

The History of the Hyundai ix20

In 2010, the Hyundai ix20 was designed by South Korean automobile makers, Hyundai Motors. It is a Mini MPV, which in layman's terms, is a car classification used to describe superminis with a flexibile interior and taller build. The ix20 made its first debut at a car show in Paris. This automobile was designed by Hyundai in order to be Hyundai's own version of the Kia Venga. Although this Hyundai designed car does have various similar features with that of the Kia Venga, such as low running costs and a high quality interior, it also compared to the Kia Venga markedly. One key factor that set the ix20 apart from the very similar Kia Venga, was that with every purchase of this automobile, the buyer would also have benefited from Hyundai's 'Five Year Triple Care' package which included a five year/unlimited mileage manufacturer's warranty, five years roadside assistance, and five years of vehicle health checks - an impressive deal. 

Hyundai's design of the 'fluidic sculpture' form language is a developed concept that brings together qualities of an appealing design. These qualities could be summarized into: refinement, dynamism, and confidence. The Hyundai ix20 is the second European car to adopt this fluidic sculpture.
