New 2023 Hyundai i20 facelift: UK prices and specs revealed
The refreshed Hyundai i20 supermini is set to start at £20,770 in the UK
UK prices and specifications of the updated Hyundai i20 supermini have now officially landed, with the simplified model range now featuring one petrol engine option in three grades. Each is more generously equipped than previous versions, with prices starting at £20,770.
The entry-level Advance model is kitted out with lots of key features, including 16-inch alloy wheels, LED head and tail lights, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system paired to a 10.25-inch driver’s display, air conditioning, cruise control, front and rear parking sensors and a rear camera. This is in addition to a whole suite of active and passive safety features, which includes everything from lane-keep assist, forward collision warning and more.
Mid-tier Premium models cost an additional £1,800 at £22,570 and add 17-inch wheels, a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen, auto wipers, an auto dimming rearview mirror, plus ambient interior lighting, heated seats and steering wheel, and even a heated centre armrest. Top-spec Ultimate models go the whole hog and throw in keyless entry and start, wireless charging for your smartphone and a Bose sound system. It’s yours from £24,070.
All three models come as standard with a 99bhp turbocharged three-cylinder engine matched to a six-speed manual. Buyers can opt for a seven-speed dual-clutch for an additional £1,250, but this, as well as new exterior colour and an additional active safety pack inclusive of blind spot monitoring, are the only options available.
More fundamental changes to the model range include a new radiator grille and the badge has been relocated to the top of the bumper. The bumper itself has been completely restyled with side air intakes and a lower lip. The LED headlights from the N Line model are now standard across the range.
Both 16- and 17-inch wheels are new designs, and the rear bumper has also been updated with a more prominent imitation diffuser. Hyundai has added three new exterior colours - Meta Blue Pearl, Lumen Grey Pearl and the Lucid Lime Metallic that our pictures show. That lime colour can be carried over to the interior as well. The seats can be specified with lime stitching as can various pieces of trim in the cabin.
There’s no word yet on whether the popular i20 N hot hatch will feature any elements from this facelifted model, but we suspect the whole N range to undergo a set of updates next year, including the larger i30 N.
