New Hyundai ix20 models available from an authorised Hyundai dealership, Charles Hurst Hyundai, located in Dundonald Northern Ireland. The new Hyundai ix20 is the stylish, practical and spacious alternative to a compact MPV. With innovative reclining, folding and sliding rear seats the interior is also versatile to accommodate your weekly shopping trips and long journeys. The Hyundai ix20 is available with a manual 1.4 petrol or CRDi diesel engine, both inclusive of the Intelligent Stop and Go (ISG) technology to help reduce CO2 emissions.
The Hyundai ix20 is one of the most versatile cars on the market. It is compact, easy to drive, and has enough space for both passengers and luggage. However, one of the biggest benefits has to be the low running costs. It has low emissions, it is efficient, and has low insurance costs; in short, the Hyundai ix20 will not put much of a dent in the pocket.
There are three different engines available: two are petrol and one is diesel. The 1.4 litre petrol engine delivers 89 bhp and has a five speed manual gearbox. This model is able to achieve 62 mph in 12.9 seconds and has a top speed of 104 mph. The other petrol model has a 1.6 litre engine and delivers 123 bhp. Although this model has more power, it has slower acceleration and goes from 0-62 mph in 12.2 seconds. This model is a four-speed automatic and has a top speed of 114 mph. The diesel model has a six-speed manual gearbox and is able to go from 0-62 mph in 14.5 seconds. This model also has a maximum speed of 104 mph. Contained within the manual gearboxes is a start/stop function, which is more eco-friendly as it lowers the car's emissions.
The Hyundai ix20 is a very compact car, though it has a lot of headroom due to its height. The front seats have been designed to optimise comfort, making long rides easy for the driver. The practicality of this car is impeccable. The boot space contains 440 litres of storage space, even when the seats are up. Once folded flat the capacity increases to 1,486 litres. There is an extra storage area in the boot itself; this is great for preventing luggage from sliding around. Other benefits include facilities to store mobile phones, drinks bottles and money.
The Hyundai ix20 is not short on safety features. There are both driver and passenger airbags, stability control to ensure that the car is easy to handle, and the head restraints will protect the occupants of the car from whiplash in the event of a crash. The rear seats also have Isofix points to allow child seats to be installed with ease. Security also is not a problem. With a remote control alarm system, an immobiliser and deadlocks, there will never be a problem when leaving the car unattended. Whilst driving, childproof rear door locks can be enabled and there is also a door locking system that jumps into action upon driving at high speeds.
