The Hyundai i20 has undergone a mid-life refresh that includes styling changes and more connectivity, and also a twin-clutch automatic transmission for the first time.

Expected in showrooms in June, the updates apply to both the three-door coupé and five-door hatchback versions of the i20 supermini.

Styling changes to the five-door are described as ‘more modern’, based on revisions to the front and rear bumpers, the addition of the brand’s signature cascading grille, new 15 and 16-inch wheel designs and two-tone paintwork.

Inside cars in S and SE specification gain a new seven-inch display audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone compatibility. Premium Nav and Premium SE Nav models get an uprated infotainment system again based around a seven-inch screen and smartphone compatible.

   

Engine options remain the 1.0-litre petrol unit in 100 or 120hp outputs or the 1.2 in 75 or 84hp varieties. The 1.2-litre and 100hp 1.0-litre are supplied with a five-speed manual gearbox, the 120hp unit with a six-speed, but this can now also be matched to the seven-speed dual clutch auto transmission, never before offered in the i20 line-up.

Stop and start is now standard across all i20 models and contributes to all versions of the powertrain meeting the latest and strictest Euro-6d emissions regulations.

Stronger safety package

Hyundai is also significantly updating the i20’s safety specification, introducing its SmartSense package as standard on SE models and above.

Lane departure warning and its associated Lane Keeping Assist is in the SmartSense package, as is autonomous emergency braking and a driver attention alert that monitors driving patterns and activates sounds and instrument panel messages if it senses the driver is becoming fatigued. SmartSense is completed by an auto high-beam headlamp system.

Prices for the revised i20 will be revealed closer to its showroom launch.
