Fuel economy

Petrol engines 53.3 - 55.4 mpg
  • Only one engine
  • Mild-hybrid ensures low emissions
  • Impressive MPG

If you're the type of person who hates having too much choice, Hyundai has your back. There's only one engine on offer - a 1.0-litre mild-hybrid.

Compared with the old 1.0-litre from the old i20, it's around 3-4% more efficient, in both MPG and CO2 emissions

Officially, the CO2 emissions look like this:

SE Connect

Manual: 115g/km
Automatic: 117g/kmg

Premium

Manual: 118g/km
Automatic: 121g/km

Ultimate

Manual: 118g/km
Automatic: 121g/km

While the MPG figures run to this:

SE Connect

Manual: 55.4mpg
Automatic: 55.4mpg

Premium

Manual: 54.3mpg
Automatic: 53.3mpg

Ultimate

Manual: 54.3mpg
Automatic: 53.3mpg

The differences in emissions and mpg between the specs can be attributed to wheel sizes. SE Connect cars have 16-inch wheels, while Premium and Ultimate cars have larger and more less efficient 17-inch alloys.

Residual value

Residual values are important for two reasons. Generally, those with strong residual values are cheaper to finance. And of course, if your car is worth more when it comes to sell it, it's technically cheaper.

According to CAP, a Hyundai SE Connect after three-years, will retain 49.6% of its value. It's a good depreciation curve, and better than the old car, which only retained 42.8% of its value.

Reliability

Being a completely new car, it's too early to pass judgement on its reliability.

Although it should be noted that it comes with Hyundai's stellar five-year unlimited mileage warranty.
