The Hyundai ix20 supermini-MPV has quietly captured a decent slug of UK sales. Here's the refreshed version. Jonathan Crouch reports.
The Hyundai ix20 builds on the usual supermini-MPV theme, offering sliding rear seats for added versatility and additional storage solutions inside. It's smartly finished, comes with a five-star Euro NCAP crash test and a five-year warranty. No wonder it's been such a big success across Europe.
There are some cars that always seem to be in the pages of car magazines. They're beloved by road testers, they're charismatic and everybody knows all about them. But they don't sell. The polar opposite of this is Hyundai's ix20. The general public loves this car. It's one of the best-selling supermini-based MPVs in Europe and yet for all the press attention it gets it might as well not exist. Well, let's take the opportunity to give its trumpet a tootle. It's shifted over 200,000 units across Europe since 2010, which isn't bad for a car that has a lot of talented rivals to face down such as the Nissan Note and the Citroen C3 Picasso, but it's been revised of late and it's now a more compelling proposition than ever.
Stop me if you've heard this one before. Yes, the underpinnings of the Hyundai ix20 are shared with its Kia Venga sister vehicle and, to be entirely honest, not a whole lot has changed. The chassis engineers have had another look at the car's suspension and have tuned the damping to suit British road conditions a bit better, so the ix20 isn't quite as firm-riding as before, but you'd probably need to drive both cars back to back to really notice that much of a difference. Hyundai has engineered a much broader array of engines for this revised model. There's a 90PS 1.4-litre petrol engine that's offered with a five-speed manual transmission, a 125PS 1.6-litre petrol unit that comes with either a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic. Should you prefer a diesel engine, you get the choice of either 77 or 90PS power outputs if you go for the 1.4-litre unit, with a six-speed manual and there's a 1.6-litre diesel range-topper which delivers 115PS or 128PS, again with six-speed manual gearboxes.
In the relatively unlikely event of you being overly familiar with the original version of this car, the most significant change you'll notice will be to the ix20's front end where the slightly fussy front grille structure with its overlapping elements has been replaced by something a bit straightforward. Bigger too, with horizontal chromed elements. The light units have also been updated, with bi-function projector lamps and LED units at the back. There are also revised 16- and 17-inch alloy wheels. Inside, the cabin may be simple in design and layout, but the materials used are clearly quality and made to last, now standing comparison with anything Japanese, with the interior being offered with either black or two-tone beige interior colour schemes. The ix20 is flexible and spacious inside and despite its 'compact' tag, adults in the back have all the space they need thanks to the sliding rear seating. With just driver and passenger aboard, fold down the rear seats and you get a healthy 1486-litres of space and that sort of carrying capacity puts it on a par with some medium-sized estate cars. Otherwise there's 440-litres under the parcel shelf with the rear seats slid forward.
Pricing for this ix20 has always sat competitively in the 312,5000 to £16,5000 bracket, which means that for the same money - or perhaps even less - than that ordinary Corsa or Fiesta you might have been looking at, you can here get a slightly larger, more versatile car. And a pretty well equipped one. Depending on the spec chosen, ix20 customers now get a heated steering wheel and a revised audio system with integrated My Music (1GB storage) and iPod, USB, AUX and Bluetooth connectivity. The ix20's been keenly priced to date which has helped it to a nine per cent market share in the European supermini-MPV sector and the latest car can't afford to step too far upmarket. Safety equipment includes electronic stability control, active front head restraints, anti-lock brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, hazard lights that deploy when you brake hard, tyre-pressure monitoring and front, side and full-length curtain airbags. The old version scored a five-star Euro NCAP crash test result and there's no reason this latest one won't repeat that.
The ix20's been popular with buyers due to a number of factors. Practicality, value for money, safety and reliability are clearly not to be overlooked, but low running costs have also been a massive drawcard. Expect better than 65mpg for the 1.4-litre diesel. Hyundai welcomes new customers with the reassurance of their Five Year Triple Care Package which ensures five years of free vehicle health checks as well as a five year, unlimited mileage warranty and five years of roadside assistance. Service costs shouldn't be too much of a cost issue anyway as the Korean brand recommends service intervals of 20,000 miles. Plus it's good to note that the six-speed manual gearbox will require no servicing at all during its life and insurance costs are a group or two lower than rival equivalents.
The Hyundai ix20 might initially seem an answer to a question nobody is asking. After all, modern superminis are so good these days, do people really need one with MPV attributes? In most cases, the answer is no, but in the case of the ix20, it genuinely does offer something over the standard i20 supermini that's sold alongside it. The latest updates don't change the script too radically and nor do they particularly need to. The ix20 sells very well and appeals to buyers who have done their homework and figured out that this unassuming Korean car offers a winning blend of practicality, safety, affordability and reliability. No, it's still not the most exciting thing you can buy but don't let that stop you. What was very good before just got a little bit better.
Hyundai's improved ix20 supermini-MPV demonstrates that the Koreans have got the hang of reliability and practicality and that they're now working on bringing the style. June Neary reports.
Although I don't have children, it's almost as if the Hyundai ix20 was designed with me in mind. I like models that don't unnecessarily draw attention to themselves but, when you pause to give them the once over, reveal stylish touches. I also like practical cars. Up until fairly recently, those two demands proved beyond many car makers. If you wanted a car that could cart kids or, in my case, a pile of amplifiers and turntables about, you needed something that was shaped like a box and drove like a panel van. The ix20 is one of the fresh breed of so-called 'supermini-MPVs' that prove small cars don't have to be like that. More familiar examples of this breed include cars like Nissan's Note, Ford's B-MAX and Citroen's C4 Picasso. In the case of this Hyundai, it looks as if a lot of effort has been spent in the design studio. The sculpted sides, the dynamic front end and the genuinely impressive interior quality and commitment to keeping things anything but boring are evidence of this. If you thought Korean cars were dull and you're shopping in this segment, you owe it to yourselves to have a good look at this one.
As I've said, this car is designed to compete with the likes of the Nissan Note and Citroen C3 Picasso, but this Hyundai looks a little smaller than both of these models, due in no small part to the fact that its styling is notably more curvaceous. The ix20 is flexible and spacious inside and despite its 'compact' tag, adults in the back have all the space they need thanks to the sliding rear seating. The car features an adjustable boot floor so that luggage can be slid in or, if that floor is lowered for extra capacity, dropped over the sill. Folding the rear backrest moves the cushion forward and down at the same time, resulting in a perfectly flat load space ideal for loading big boxes. With just driver and passenger aboard, fold down the rear seats and you get a healthy 1486-litres of space and the sort of carrying capacity puts it on a par with some medium-sized estate cars. With the seats in place there's 440-litres available, a little down on the C3 Picasso's 500-litre total but still a lot more than you'd get in a comparably-priced conventional supermini.
The press kit that came with my ix20 test car stated that the car's suspension had been 'set up for British roads' and while it's true that it does ride extremely well, it seems the seats had been designed for Americans, or at least somebody a good deal more padded back there than me. They're rather hard and don't offer too much in the way of support. The model I selected had a 1.4-litre diesel engine and although it was supremely economical, I actually ended up wishing I'd asked for one of the petrol engine options (there's a 90PS 1.4 and a 125PS 1.6). The diesel (offered with either 77 or 90PS) feels great on the open road when you can really feel its torque, but in town, the petrol engined car steps off the line a little bit easier. I think my ideal companion would be the 1.6-litre automatic petrol-engined model which makes city driving a doddle. Visibility out of the ix20 is fairly good as you sit high in the car, although the windscreen pillars are a little chunky. You get a decent amount of safety features as standard, with even the base model getting anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control and front, side and curtain airbags.
Prices kick off at around £12,500 for the entry-level 1.4-litre petrol variant in baseline trim although many will prefer to go for a mid-spec model as it gets 16-inch alloy wheels and therefore doesn't instantly look as if you've put your mother to work in a call centre to afford the car. It also gets reversing sensors which help if you're trying to park a car in a busy multi-storey and the kids are trying to garotte each other with cheese strings. It's a bit of a shame that the only car with an automatic gearbox also has the priciest 1.6-litre engine, so you'll need at least £16,000 to land yourself something without a clutch pedal. It also means that the car best suited to city driving is the one in the range with the highest emissions and the biggest thirst. The 1.4-litre diesel that most customers choose certainly makes some good numbers. Its combined fuel economy figure is around 65mpg and emissions are rated at under 115g/km, which is very good going for a car with this sort of space on offer. It's worth pricing this ix20 up against its sister car the Kia Venga when shopping for a deal, but often, the Hyundai will emerge as the better bargain. It's all backed up by Hyundai's Five Year Triple Care Package which ensures five years of free vehicle health checks as well as a five year, unlimited mileage warranty and five years of roadside assistance.
The Hyundai ix20 represents a very slick and extremely good value compact supermini-MPV. I would have liked to see an eco version fitted with an automatic gearbox for city drivers but aside from that, it barely puts a wheel wrong. Overall, I'd say that it's hard to do much better if you have a young family - and even if you don't, the Hyundai's practicality, its deft styling and its ease of ownership makes it a car that may well grow on you. It's not the sort of model you'll think you want, but after a week at the wheel, I'm beginning to wonder how I'll manage without it.
