Most recently published car reviews:
Hyundai has a new i20 that comes with naturally aspirated and turbocharged petrol engines and two spec levels (“motion” and “fluid”) as well as a choice between manual, automatic or dual-clutch transmissions.
The i20 has all the creature comforts you would expect and an option of a two-tone finish.
At the bottom of the range is a manual 1.2-litre, four-cylinder engine generating 61 kW and 115 Nm that consumes 5.9 litres per 100 kilometres.
Drivers who opt for the automatic gets a 1.4-litre petrol engine that produces 61 kW and 115 Nm and consumes 7.5 litres per 100 kilometres.
At the top of the range is the new, 1-litre turbocharged, three-cylinder engine with 90 kW and 172 Nm on tap.
It comes with either a manual gearbox (fuel consumption: 6.5 litres/100 km) or a quick-shifting dual-clutch transmission (fuel consumption: 6.9 litres/100 km).

It’s a good little car… I was pretty impressed.Ciro de Siena, motoring journalist
Ergonomically, it didn’t feel quite right. I couldn’t get comfortable…Ciro de Siena, motoring journalist
Pricing… it’s quite a lot cheaper than its rivals… and quite well-specced… Boot size is decent… It’s a very good warranty…Ciro de Siena, motoring journalist
