Time 5:57 am, April 23, 2012

HYUNDAI has announced pricing and specification for the new i20, which will be available in showrooms on May 7.

Prices for i20 start at £9,995 on-the-road for the three-door 1.2 petrol Classic model, while at the other end of the spectrum the range-topping 88bhp 1.4 CRDi Style model costs £14,295.

The car has received a front and rear make-over, while the inside gains soft-touch plastics, a revised centre consol along with updated seat trims.

The New i20 is available in three main trim levels beginning with Classic, moving up to Active and followed by Style.

Starting with Classic, each model comes with a generous list of standard specification including remote central locking, six air bags, air conditioning, ESP and, for the first time on i20, Vehicle Stability Management.

Active adds 15-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth with voice recognition, electric/heated door mirrors, front fog lights, leather steering wheel and gear knob and electric rear windows (five door bodystyle) when compared with Classic.

The range-topping Style model is equipped with16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, rain sensing front wipers, climate control along with an automatic dimming rear view mirror with an integrated reversing camera.

Tony Whitehorn, president and CEO Hyundai Motor UK, said: ‘The New i20 is yet another model to join Hyundai’s new-look model range and will appeal to existing customers but will also prove an attractive choice for young buyers who may not have considered Hyundai in the past.

‘It has been given a thorough revision both inside out and with high levels of specification will appeal to customers who want value for money without compromising on quality.

‘In addition, the i20 range will feature the cleanest internal combustion diesel engine in terms of CO2 missions with the 1.1-litre unit emitting just 84g/km.’

Hyundai has improved upon the popular 1.2-litre petrol engine, which is now cleaner, more efficient and more powerful than the model it replaces.

Headlining i20’s eco-credentials is the Blue variant, which is powered by Hyundai’s ultra-efficient 1.1-litre “U-ll” three-cylinder diesel engine. It emits 84g/km – making it the lowest-emitting diesel engine in the UK.
