Hyundai ix20 Hyundai ix20

Hyundai has taken the wraps off its all-new ix20 mini-crossover car ahead of its debut at this month’s Paris motor show.

Based on the same platform as the new i20 city car – and the twin car to KIA’s Europe-sold Venga (which I thought was a rude word in Spanish?) – it is ostensibly the same vehicle but with a heftier, more versatile body.

Hyundai’s version comes with a different look, but it’s believed it will be using the same engine specifications as the i20, with a choice of either 1.4-litre or 1.6-litre petrol- or diesel-powered units, with the choice of four-speed automatic, or five- or six-speed manual transmissions.

Following the same fluid design styling as the recently-released i45 and i35 models, the ix20 features the same pronounced headlamps and body creasing of its bigger sisters.
