With its brawny, high-tensile steel body, the new Hyundai ix20 offers both optimal protection and the sort of rugged good looks that attract attention. A raised driving position and spacious cabin make it an excellent mini-SUV for active families.
The ix20’s expanded front grille is trimmed with chrome, which also feature on elegant horizontal slats, the uppermost of which sports the Hyundai logo. Chrome-finished door handles, headlamp trims and 16-inch alloy wheels perfectly complement the rear spoiler with integrated brake lights.
The compact silhouette of the new Hyundai ix20 disguises a clever use of space inside. You might be forgiven for thinking that there can’t be much room inside - a notion that’s dispelled once you take a seat. The cabin layout is uncluttered and intuitive and everything you need is at your fingertips. Tactile materials and subtle design throughout make for a pleasurable ambience. There’s a feeling of freedom in the new five-seat Hyundai ix20, with plenty of legroom, shoulder space and headroom.
The Premium grade benefits from a panoramic sunroof that adds enormously to the sense of liberation that you feel inside the new Hyundai ix20, while tinted rear windows offer extra privacy.
Models with manual transmission come with Intelligent Stop and Go (ISG), which conserves fuel by stopping the engine when you come to a halt. When you depress the clutch, ISG will re-start the ignition to get you moving again.
Rear-parking sensors are your best friend when it comes to reversing into narrow parking spaces. For your continued safety and security, you’ll find airbags located at front, front side and curtain. The new Hyundai ix20 also comes with head restraints and seatbelt reminders.
Hill-Start Assist prevents the ix20 from rolling back when you start the car on an incline. And the Electronic Stability Programme protects you from skidding, providing greater control in a variety of tricky driving situations.
