Hyundai i20 Reviews

The base model Hyundai i20 Active is part of a formerly rare but now growing breed of car on Australian roads - a cheap, three-door hatchback. We don't really like our cars without rear doors in Australia, but with the availability of the India-sourced i20 to whet our bargain-hunter appetites, the question must be asked: what am I getting for my lowly dollar? VALUE The range kicks off at $15,590 for the three-door six-speed manual...Read more
We turn the spotlight on the car world's newest and brightest stars as we ask the questions to which you want the answers. But there's only one question that really needs answering -- would you buy one? What is it? Our test car has the honour of being the cheapest car that Hyundai's currently makes and sells in this country. That's not necessarily a bad thing if you don't have much money to spend. I...Read more
The reliability of the Getz is translating into repeat sales for Hyundai’s i20 light car. Sales figures say the i20 hatch is the third-best vehicle in the class. It trails the Toyota Yaris and Mazda2 by a long way but is ahead of the Holden Barina, Suzuki Swift and Kia Rio. And the five-year warranty can’t be the cause, given the Rio has the same deal, the option of three or five doors and better...Read more
Price. Safety. Reliability. Those three words target the top three priorities for anyone diving into the dangerous waters of the first-car swamp. It's far too easy to get carried away, or baited the wrong way, or distracted by trinkets, during your first serious drive into the new-car world. But price is not everything, and safety often becomes a compromise, although reliability is unlikely to be a problem in 2011 with current technology, car building techniques...Read more
Shopping trolleys aren't renowned for steering, ride quality or comfort or features. Neither are the cars that share - rather unkindly - the title, but recent offerings have raised the bar. Ford and Mazda contribute models that show dynamics aren't beyond the reach of light car buyers. Hyundai 's i20, the Indian-built five-door hatch model, certainly looks better than the company's previous efforts. It's teen-priced A-to-B transport - a little hatch that's all about .....Read more
It's arrived a week late, but the Hyundai i20 is ready to go on the Carsguide treadmill. The baby Hyundai comes with the sort of 'all-new' promises you get with a major model change, from the engine and suspension right through to the safety pack and cabin equipment. There is also a bunch of 'surprise-and-delight' features which are new for a Korean car with a $14,990 starting price, including automatic door looking and auto-off headlamps...Read more
There's more to the Hyundai i20 than a nice price. It's the first toddler from the Korean carmaker not being built on a bargain-basement bottom line, although a starting sticker of $14,990 is still good value in 2010. The i20 follows the line from Excel and Getz but goes a new way with more style and substance, picking up everything from ESP stability control and anti-skid brakes to Bluetooth connectivity. It's part of a plan...Read more
