The Hyundai i20 – a small car with a small price

Hyundai has released details about the price of its mid-range supermini, the i20 – which is due to be released in January.

The company believes that the new car is priced at least £1,000 lower than mainstream rivals – a factor that could make it a bargain for people considering buying a used Hyundai in a few years’ time.

The entry level 1.2-litre Classic will have a price tag of £8,195 for the three-door with the five door setting you back an extra £450.

Whichever option you plump for will have active head restraints, air-conditioning, six airbags, electric front windows and remote locking.

A five-year unlimited mileage warranty will provide extra reassurance to go with the safety features.

Electric rear windows, full iPod integration, a trip computer and a six-speaker system are all added to the mid-range Comfort model. Little wonder then that this is expected to be the best seller in the range (it can be bought for £8,995).

The top-of-the-range Style i20 is priced from £10,845.
