Lower emissions for i20 supermini

  • Revised engines for Hyundai supermini
  • Lower company car tax bills across the range
  • On sale now, priced from £9,520

Hyundai's i20 supermini range is now even more economical and cheaper in terms of company car tax.

The revised models, which are available to order now, benefit from the addition of a spoiler mounted underneath the car which improves aerodynamic efficiency. Hyundai has also added a gearchange indicator in the instrument panel and now equips its cars with low-friction engine oil.

The changes are marked, with all models offering improved fuel economy and lower emissions.

The entry level 1.2-litre petrol engine sees CO2 emissions fall by 5g/gm to 129g/km, dropping from the 15% benefit-in-kind tax band to the lowest possible 10% banding.

The 1.4 petrol records a 13g/km emissions drop, putting it in the 15% BIK banding.

The two diesel units offered are also improved. The 1.4 CRDi 75bhp engine now emits 110g/km - a drop of 6g/km which qualifies it for the lowest 13% company car tax band, while the 90bhp version now emits 111g/km - also qualifying for the 13% banding.

Also new is Bluetooth handsfree which is standard on models with the exception of the entry level Classic trim.

The new models are due to arrive in showrooms at the end of this month, with prices starting at £9,520.
