Review Summary:

Upon its arrival in 2008, the phased out the popular Getz, a that was well known for being advertised by tennis star Sania Mirza. The 2014 is a neat looking hatchback sold by the Korean manufacturer and sits between the smaller i10 and the larger i30.

Pros

Rear leg and head room
Features

Cons

Chrome on shifter lever

Looks

From the exterior, it is evident that the designers at Hyundai spent more time and thought when designing the i20 as opposed to its sibling, the i10. The 2014 i20 flaunts numerous lines and creases along the body particularly along its hood and doors. A horizontal line running along the side of the car that gets distinctively more prominent towards the end gives the impression that the i20 is a lot longer than it really is.

Feels

Certain aspects of the interior in the i20 are rather neat while others are flat out tacky. Although plastic has been used generously all over the interior, Hyundai has had a little fun when designing the dashboard and as a result the clock sits in a sculpted den facing the driver. On the other hand, the large chrome piece on top of the shifter lever looks and feels extremely tacky. Leg and headroom in the rear seats are ample and headrest for rear passengers are a plus point, something that was missing in the i10.

Engineering

With audio controls on the steering wheel, push button start, fully automatic air conditioning and a 6 way driver seat, the i20 brings an impressive amount of kit to the table.

What’s on offer?

The 2014 Hyundai i20 comes with a 1.2 litre or a 1.4 litre engine. The 1.2 litre produces 85 horsepower and 120 Nm of torque while being mated to a 5 speed manual transmission. On the other hand, the 1.4 litre produces 99 horsepower and 136 Nm of torque while being mated to a 4 speed automatic transmission.

Summing it…

With a price range of AED 35,000 to AED 46,500 the Hyundai i20 is cheaper and better looking than it’s rivals, the Mitsubishi Mirage and Nissan Micra.
