Hyundai Motor’s New ix20 celebrates its world premiere at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and builds on all the qualities of the original model, with an enhanced engine line-up, new technologies and design refreshments to widen its appeal.
 
Since its initial launch in 2010, Hyundai has sold almost 200.000 units of ix20 – capturing a 9% share in the European multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) market.
 
Raf van Nuffel, Head of Product Management at Hyundai Motor Europe, commented: “New ix20 retains the versatility and roominess of the original model, while refreshing its design and adding technological enhancements, increasing appeal to a wider range of buyers in Europe.”


Refreshed design and additional features
New ix20’s design stands out with newly-designed bi-function projector headlamps and LED rear combination lamps, a new hexagonal front grille – Hyundai’s brand signature. There are two versions on offer – a mesh- or bars-type with chrome finishing. To further enhance its dynamic exterior, there is a new 15-inch wheel cover design and new 16- and 17-inch alloy wheel options.
 
Inside, New ix20 delivers the same space and versatility as before, with outstanding front seat room (head, shoulder and legroom). The 4115 mm long car’s unusually long wheelbase for its class (2615 mm) plus 1600 mm high roofline allows a spacious and practical interior, more typical of larger C-segment vehicles – an impression which can be enhanced by an optional tilt/slide dual-panel panoramic glass sunroof.
 
Apart from an impressive class-leading 440-litre boot (seats up) outstanding versatility comes from sliding ‘dive and fold’ rear seats allowing up to1486 litres’ luggage capacity.
 
A new heated steering wheel and a new generation audio system – first introduced in the New Generation i20 - with iPod connectivity and integrated My Music storage (1 GB ) enhances comfort and connectivity on board. Alternatively customers can choose a 7-inch TFT touch screen navigation system with integrated rear view camera. Further connectivity in the New ix20 is enabled through a Bluetooth, USB and AUX connection. For passengers’ safety six airbags, ESP, ABS and EBD are fitted as standard.
 
Two interior colours (Black and Two-Tone Beige) with cloth or leather upholstery are offered, plus an elegant brown cloth/leather combination. Nine exterior colours are available: one solid colour (Polar White), six metallic colours (Platinum Silver, Micron Grey, Ultimate Red, Ash Blue, Ara Blue, Ruby Wine) and two pearl colours (Phantom Black, Thunder Grey).
 

New six-speed automatic transmission and engine upgrades
To uphold New ix20’s class competitiveness, a new six-speed automatic transmission, as well as power and torque upgrades to the overall Euro6 emissions-compliant engine line-up brings even better drivability, with lower fuel consumption and emissions.
 
The two diesel engines have been enhanced to provide more torque – 240 Nm (1,4-litre) and 260 Nm (1,6-litre) – from just 1500 rpm.
 
The Continuous Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) 1,4- and 1,6-litre gasoline Hyundai ‘Gamma’ family units have both had efficiency boosted, with the 1,6-litre now available with a six-speed automatic transmission, replacing the previous four-speed unit and delivering improved real-world fuel economy.

All engines have been enhanced to offer improved driveability and fuel efficiency, as well as meeting Euro6 emission standards.

Fuel Saving Technologies
To optimise its environmental performance, New ix20 BlueDrive features Integrated Stop & Go (ISG), low rolling-resistance tyres, an alternator management system (AMS) and a drag-reducing ‘active air flap’ in the front grille.
 
The ix20 has not only attracted almost 200.000 customers in Europe but also won numerous awards during its first five years on sale, including the prestigious ‘Family Car of the Year‘ award in Belgium and ‘Best Supermini MPV‘ at the UK’s Auto Express awards. Like all new Hyundai models, the New ix20 is backed by Hyundai’s unique, Europe-only, Five Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty package. Production of the New ix20 begins in May 2015 at Hyundai’s European plant in Nošovice, Czech Republic.
