Background

The ix20 is a beefed-up hatchback, putting the regular i20 on stilts. In this regard, it’s not far removed from its Kia family stablemate the Venga or Nissan’s Note. For more information on the ix20, click on our further stories on the links below. 

60sec road test

Space is the new luxury, they say. So Hyundai responded in kind with this - a taller hatchback with more room in many dimensions, compared with its i20 namesake. So roominess is guaranteed, as is a generous equipment specification. Sadly, the drive is not the sharpest tool in the box, although our testers put it ahead of the Venga. It lacks thrills, but then that’s not the point of this type of vehicle.
