2011 Hyundai ix20 UK pricing announced

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 29, 2010

On Nov. 8, Hyundai's new ix20 mini-MPV will go on sale and it will have a starting price of £11,595. The Entry-level Classic is priced nearly identical to the closely related Kia Venga. The buyer gets a Classic-trim model with a 1.4-litre petrol engine and it comes with the full safety kit, including stability control, six airbags and active head restraints.

It also features a height-adjustable driver's seat, air-conditioning, and a radio/CD stereo with aux/MP3 inputs.

For £1100 more, the buyer can get the Active trim, which features alloy wheels, body-colored door handles and mirrors (which are electrically adjustable and heated) and reversing sensors. In addition, it gets Bluetooth, electric rear windows and steering-wheel-mounted stereo controls.

Then there’s the Style trim that costs £1000 more than the Active trim. It features a panoramic glass sunroof, front foglights and electrically folding mirrors with integrated indicators.

It is available with a 1.4-litre petrol engine, a 1.4-litre diesel engine (which costs £1400 more than the petrol unit) and a 1.6-litre petrol that is offered only with an automatic gearbox.

Press Release

HYUNDAI ix20 PRICES ANNOUNCED

Hyundai has announced prices for the new ix20. On sale from 18th November, it will be available with three drivetrain options and three generously equipped trim levels.

The three trim grades – Classic, Active and Style – are unique to the UK and have been carefully created to reflect the demands and high expectations of British buyers.

The entry level Classic trim provides the key essentials buyers want – and crucially all of the safety equipment that the customer wants, but wouldn’t expect at this level.

The well-equipped interior features a height adjustable driver’s seat, ESP, air conditioning, six airbags, active head restraints, radio/CD audio system with six speakers, plus CD, MP3, RDS and USB-/AUX-/iPOD-input capabilities.

Prices start at £11,595 for the 1.4 petrol. Buyers wanting the exceptional economy of the diesel will pay an extra £1,400.

The next, and most popular, trim level is the mid-range Active. In addition to the Classic specification it gains a carefully-selected package of goodies that are designed to appeal to a younger family buyer demanding extra style and convenience. Externally there are 16-inch alloy wheels, body coloured door handles and mirrors (which are electrically adjustable and heated) and reversing sensors.

Inside, convenience comes in the form of Bluetooth phone connectivity, electric rear windows and audio controls on the leather-trimmed steering wheel.

The Active costs £1,100 more than the Classic, starting at £12,695 for the 1.4-litre petrol, £14,095 for the diesel and £14,095 for the 1.6-litre petrol auto.

The range-topping Style specification adds some luxuries that buyers in the real world want, with no ‘fillers’ to pad out the list. As a result, the price walk up from the Active is a very affordable £1,000.

The most striking of these extras is a dual-panel panoramic glass sunroof with UV filter, which spans the front and rear seats. The front panel offers a tilt and sliding function to let the fresh air – as well as light – into the cabin.

Sometimes though, you want to keep the light out, which is why the sunroof is equipped with blinds and the rear glass is super-darkened for extra privacy and protection from the sun.

To further improve the looks and visibility of the ix20 Style from the outside, front fog lights are standard and the door mirrors are fitted with integrated side repeater indicators. To keep these safe on narrower roads, they fold electrically.

The Style range starts at £13,695 for the 1.4-litre petrol, £15,095 for the diesel and £15,095 for the 1.6-litre petrol auto.

With such exceptional equipment levels there is little room for options – the only factory-fit extra is metallic paint at £395.
