New ix20 - same space, more style plus added comfort and convenience features

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 heated steering wheel and a new generation audio system with iPod connectivity and integrated My  Music (1GB storage) as well as Bluetooth connectivity and a USB and AUX  connection further increases the comfort and pleasure in New ix20.  Customers also benefit six airbags, ESP, ABS and EBD all fitted as  standard.

Two interior colours (Black and Two-Tone Beige) with cloth upholstery  will be offered. 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 and 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 1,500 rpm.

The Continuous Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) 1.4- and 1.6-litre petrol  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 Blue Drive 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 Five Year Unlimited  Mileage Warranty package. Production of the New ix20 begins in May 2015  at Hyundai's European plant in Nošovice, Czech Republic.
