How much does the Hyundai IX20 cost to run?

The 1.4L petrol is the most economical Hyundai IX20 to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency.

The Hyundai IX20 1.4L petrol costs £125.00 a year to tax, as it sits in tax band D.

It does just over 50 MPG on average, which means it will cost £12.00* in petrol every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the Citroen C4 Cactus 1.6L diesel and the more thirsty Fiat 500X 1.4L petrol.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 8, which is lower than the Fiat 500X 1.4L petrol, but higher than the Dacia Sandero Stepway 1.5L petrol. (If insurance cost is important to you then the Citroen C3 Aircross has the lowest insurance group.)

Hyundai IX20: How big is the boot?

The Hyundai IX20 has an above average boot space (440 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This would allow one pushchair and 2 large bags. Alternatively you could load up with 3 large bags or 3 cabin bags instead.

Worth knowing, the Renault Kadjar hatchback is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 4 large bags with its 647 litres.

Is the Hyundai IX20 easy to park?

While not the absolute narrowest car (that is the Citroen C4 Cactus), this is in the top third for ease of parking in car parks. Given a typical supermarket space, it will fill three quarters of the space.

If you park on the street regularly, this is one of the cars to shortlist. At 4111m long it gives you reasonable 689mm space to move the car in and out of the bay.

Which Hyundai IX20 has the best performance?

The fastest Hyundai IX20 from 0-60, is the 1.6L petrol. It hits 60 mph in 10.8 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the Citroen C4 Cactus 1.6L diesel, which will beat your Hyundai IX20 to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.

What size caravan or trailer, can the Hyundai IX20 tow?

If you are towing you want good torque to pull away easily despite the extra weight, and the car needs to be at least 15% heavier than the caravan to keep you stable at speed.

The model that can tow the biggest caravan or heaviest trailer is the Hyundai IX20 1.6L petrol which has 156 lbs/ft torque. It should be able to tow a braked caravan or trailer that weighs up to 1300kg comfortably.

You must check your car handbook – maximum towing weights vary considerably with different engine and gearbox combinations.
