As you’d expect from Cannon, we like to do things a little differently. We believe researching your next car shouldn’t just be about facts and figures, it should also be an easy and enjoyable experience. So before you get stuck into the detail, make a cup of tea, sit back and enjoy our unique tour of the i20 Turbo Edition.
i20 Racing DNA
Discover the road-going i20 lurking beneath the exterior of Hyundai’s latest World Rally Car.
The i20 handles and performs beautifully. That’s thanks in part to its extensive use of ultra high strength steel. This increases rigidity, ensuring the wheels are firmly planted to the road, and the chassis and body work in complete harmony.
Every Hyundai World Rally Car starts life as a road-going i20. Changes include strengthening the steel chassis to add stiffness; the addition of a 1.6-litre, turbocharged engine with direct injection and six-speed sequential gearbox; plus new body panels and rear wing/front spoiler to improve cooling and downforce.
The i20’s distinctive design is accentuated with features such as daytime running lights, which provide a striking focal point and ensure visibility during daylight. When the light fades, Premium and Premium SE models offer halogen projection headlights which automatically switch on, providing impressive night vision. SE models also benefit from this upgrade as part of the optional Driver Assist pack.
Another feature of the i20’s effortless style are the rear lights. Following the curve of the rear window, they integrate seamlessly within the boot. LED brake lights – available on Premium and Premium SE models – feature brighter, more illuminating bulbs. So those behind can appreciate its intricate rear design too.
Whether you’re looking from the inside or admiring from the outside, the Hyundai i20 Premium SE offers stunning views. The sliding and tilting panoramic sunroof bathes the interior with natural light giving the cabin an airy and spacious feel – and helping everyone feel more relaxed.
Whether it’s the feel of quality materials, the amount of space or clever features, the i20 offers a number of ways to make your driving environment as relaxed and tranquil as possible. Hyundai engineers have even introduced special sound absorption materials and precision aerodynamics to reduce engine and road noise. The result is a quiet, serene and uncluttered cabin for whatever type of journey you need to take.
Stay in control
During motorway journeys, it’s sometimes nice to have a helping hand so you can concentrate on the road ahead. SE, Premium and Premium SE car models have the perfect solution. Switch on cruise control and enjoy the ride without having to worry about trying to maintain a constant speed. Alternatively you can use the speed limiter function to cap your top speed, allowing you to accelerate and slow down without exceeding your chosen limit.
Parking made easy
When you reach the end of your journey and need help with tight spaces, rear parking sensors on SE and above will effortlessly guide you between the lines. To help when driving straight into a space or making a tricky 3 point turn, Premium SE models feature front parking sensors while Premium Nav and Premium SE Nav also include a rear view parking camera within the touch screen display.
Air conditioning isn’t just about keeping you cool. It can also help remove moisture from the air and de-fog the windows. You’d be lost and less comfortable without it and it features as standard on S Air and SE car models. Premium and Premium SE take things up a notch with climate control, which keeps the temperature at a constant pre-set level, perfect for your personal comfort zone.
When those cold winter days come calling, it’s important to keep warm where it matters. Just flick a switch and enjoy heated seats and steering wheel – all available at your increasingly warm fingertips. Both features come as standard on the Premium SE model.
The i20 offers a number of ways to keep connected. USB and AUX connections are standard across the range while SE models and above also offer Bluetooth® connectivity and DAB digital radio*. For extra convenience, Premium and Premium SE feature a handy smartphone docking station.
The i20 small hatchback offers class-leading combined front and rear legroom. This means there’s enough space for everyone on board to enjoy the journey, even if there’s three in the back and two up front. It’s also versatile with clever ideas for a compact car. So when you need a little extra storage, the rear seats fold fully flat. And because it makes the most out of every available millimetre, the family-proof New i20 doesn’t let you down when you need to carry a bigger load.
