Hyundai i20 Review, For Sale, Interior, Specs, Models & News

The i20 was one of Hyundai's smallest forays into the exceptionally competitive Australian light car market.

The European-built i20 was introduced in 2010 in a soft takeover of the Korean-sourced Getz, and was a vital part of Hyundai's shift from a brand that made cheap cars to a brand that made good-value cars. Prices ranged from $32,990 for the I20 N to $33,990 for the I20 N TTR. As popular as the i20 was, the weakening Australian dollar meant that Hyundai could no longer turn a profit on the tiny city hatchback and the model was dropped from the Australian line-up in 2015. The i20 has been replaced by the Korean-built Hyundai Accent.

Hyundai i20 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai i20 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Hyundai i35 - Did this model ever exist?

    The answer is no, but Hyundai's naming policy was very confusing during the 2010s.

    The original i30 of 2007 introduced the alphanumerical naming policy and signified a different approach to vehicle engineering, with a European focus with higher-quality engineering rather than a low price to take on class leaders like on the Volkswagen Golf.

    Thus 'i' something became a sort of premium nomenclature, and of course is still used to denote this on models like the i30 and Europe's i10 and i20 small cars There was also the German-engineered i40 midsized sedan and wagon until 2018.

    But here's where Hyundai muddied its own waters.

    In 2010 the larger, American-market Sonata was rebadged i45 for Australia and New Zealand – even though an 'x' and a '5' rather than a '0' meant crossover or SUV, as illustrated by the very popular second-generation Tucson being renamed ix35 in Australia and some other markets from 2009 to 2015 – though this naming policy was abandoned for the third-generation Tucson from 2015. While strikingly styled, there was nothing European about the i45, and it too returned to being badged Sonata from 2015.

    So... i10, 120, i30, i40 and i45 for Australia, but no i35.

    Thank you.

  • Hyundai i20 or i30: Which better secondhand buy?

    Even though it’s older I would suggest that the i30 is perhaps the better buy with its low kays, but the i20 is also a good car and hasn’t done a lot of kays. Make sure the odometer readings are genuine; they are low for the ages of the cars.

In terms of exactly what you get for your money, well, that remains to be seen. But here's what we know so far.

Expect 18-inch alloys wrapped in Pirelli rubber, a digital driver's display and a second, central touchscreen that will deliver both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, remote unlocking with push-button start, power windows, and...

Well, that's about all we could glean from this very camouflaged car. Otherwise you'll have to watch this space.
