2017 Hyundai ix20 Review


The Hyundai ix20, as with its close cousin, the Kia Venga, represents the simpler end of the small MPV spectrum. There are neither clever seats nor trick doors here, just plenty of space in the back and the boot, lots of headroom and an affordable purchase price. Not the most exciting nor memorable car around, but a good choice for family buyers on a budget, nonetheless.

Body Style: Small MPV           Seats: 5                  MRP from £14,535 - £18,085


Did you know? The ix20 is, so far, is the only ix-badged Hyundai model that isn’t an SUV or crossover.

Verdict: ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ (6.5/10)

You won’t find yourself rhapsodising about the Hyundai ix20’s pin-sharp handling nor its gorgeous, flowing lines, but if you’re got kids, need space, and don’t want to break the bank, then it’s a good family car choice. The design is ageing a touch now, but this is still a solid option for not too much money, and the 2015 update has improved its tech count and its cabin quality to keep it fresh for a little while longer.
