The Hyundai i20 is a supermini/subcompact car, made its debut at the Paris Motor Show in October 2008 and went on sale in December 2008 in India to fit between the i10 and i30. Three and five door versions are available. The i20 replaces the Getz in most markets but in the UK, Australia and India, the Getz will still be available for the time being. The i20 is manufactured solely in India for sale worldwide .[1]



The Hyundai i20 uses a completely new platform that was created at Hyundai's European technical centre in Rüsselsheim to allow Hyundai to move into Europe's highly competitive supermini segment. A 2,525 mm (99.4 in) wheelbase helps endow the i20 with a generous passenger cabin. Suspension follows the supermini norm of MacPherson struts at the front and a torsion beam rear end with rack and pinion steering.


The i20 will debut in Europe with a total of seven engine options, all with four cylinders. Three are petrol, including the recently designed 1.2litre dohc 16 valve "Kappa" engine, while the rest are diesel engines. Two of the diesel engines are 1396 cc units, one with 75 PS (55 kW; 74 hp) and 220 N·m (160 lb·ft) and the other a 90 PS (66 kW; 89 hp) and 220 N·m (160 lb·ft) high power unit. They are joined by two 1582 cc engines having the same dohc and 16-valve top end architecture but delivering either 115 PS (85 kW; 113 hp) and 260 N·m (190 lb·ft) of torque or 128 PS (94 kW; 126 hp) and 260 N·m (190 lb·ft) of torque.

Hyundai claims that 115 PS (85 kW; 113 hp) diesel unit can return a class leading 115g/km of CO2 while sipping just one litre of HSD to go 23.25 km/L (65.7 mpg-imp; 54.7 mpg-US) (4.3L/100 km) in the European combined driving cycle. All engines come mated to five-speed manual transmissions though there are also four-speed automatics as options for the petrol engined models and the top end 1.6 is mated to a six-speed manual.


The Hyundai i20 earned Euro NCAP a maximum 5 star safety rating [2] and scored an impressive six out of a maximum seven points in the "safety assist" category, receiving top marks for its belt reminder and electronic stability programme which minimises the risk of skidding by braking individual wheels.[3]
