The i20 is far more spacious and with boot space surpassing that of the Ford Focus. It’s easy to see why this stylish little hatch is hot on the heels of city rivals the Ford Fiesta and the VW Polo.
If you’re looking for a style, space, and ultimate reliability this could be the one for you. Best of all you can grab a new Hyundai i20 with a low deposit and free insurance, discounted insurance or cashback.
The Hyundai i20 looks and feels far more grown up. It’s longer, lower and wider than before giving it a more defined and striking shape as well as providing more space. It’s a solid little car that handles well with light steering, perfect for nipping into town but sturdy enough to go up against the bigger cars on the motorway.
Inside, it’s comfortable with a slick interior. The dash is well-designed and its finish is first class. There’s a fair amount of tech as standard including air conditioning, Bluetooth, lane departure warning and cruise control across the board on mid-spec editions.
If it’s space you’re after, you can’t go wrong with the i20. There’s absolutely bags of space here so you’ll have no problem getting three mates in the back, especially if you opt for the five door model, plus there’s still room for all your gear in the boot.
The boot itself is a whopping 326 litre making it one of the biggest in the city car market and easily beating the Ford Focus. If you fold the rear seats flat you can increase the space to a massive 1,042 litres of space, ideal if you’re carting your life possessions back to University.
Hyundai have a good reputation for building reliable cars and you’ve got further peace of mind with the generous, unlimited mileage, five year warranty plus breakdown package that Hyundai provide.
Euro NCAP awarded the i20 a four star rating and missed out on the maximum rating because of the lack of autonomous emergency braking systems. But the i20 offers plenty of other safety gear to compensate including six airbags, stability control and lane departure warning.
What is a guarantor?
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments. Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.
How does the insurance work?
We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)
How long until I get my new car?
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
What happens after the first year?
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
