The i20 is a sweet little car by Hyundai that is a ideal fit proper who is looking for anything good to maneuver about in. In 2014 the i20 received a grand improving, especially the exterior was updated to anything slightly more spicy. The interior got a big revamping as well, and wound up looking a whole lot more contemporary. In the tech office the car also went up a few notches. All in all, it turned the i20 in a more than decent operating experience. The i20 did get some good new engines, however they weren’t revolutionary. That’s why Hyundai now brings people an updated powertrain in the i20. Additionally, the 2017 Hyundai i20 Turbo Variation got some small outdoor and interior tweaks to make it extra attractive.
Even though labeled as a special edition, the Turbo Edition is actually identical to the i20 SE model it is based on. The only feature that units it apart is a set of 16-inch alloy wheels, which are larger than the usual wheels offered with the SE trim. Ultimately, the i20 Turbo Variation may not entirely be your cup of tea, in that situation there is the compact, bes-selling 2017 Hyundai i30.
2017 Hyundai i20 Exterior design
To begin with the i20 Turbo Edition’s outdoor, we find it mainly unaltered from the “regular” Special Edition i20. In the United Kingdom there are six outdoor colours available. This is actually two less as on the SE i20. The Turbo i20 however doesn’t get the fiery Mandarin Lemon hue, which is a actual shame. That colour could really provide out the more powerful engine of the i20.
Moreover there’s the regular outdoor of the i20. The car looks tough and contemporary with a relatively big grille and extravagant haze lights. New and exceptional on the 2017 Hyundai i20 Turbo Edition are the 16 inch alloy wheels.
Hyundai offers the Turbo Variation in six outdoor colors: Polar Bright, Aqua Shining, Glossy Magic, Stardust Gray, Phantom Dark, Red Passion. These hues are actually the same you get with the regular i20 SE. The difference is that the standard model can also be had in Iced Espresso and Mandarin Orange.
All in all, we’re uncertain if the i20 Turbo Edition is such a great buy. Also, since it’s just for purchase in the UK, good similar solutions for this car are the high performance hatch 2017 Ford Fiesta ST200 and the gorgeous and specially fun 2017 Chevrolet Sonic.
2017 Hyundai i20 Interior design
Not many changes can be found in the interior either. The Turbo Variation gets the same standard features as the i20 SE gets, such as: Wireless, sail control, a leather-wrapped controls with audio and cell phone controls. Then there’s the seven inch infotainment touchscreen that is also provide on the Turbo Edition. All in all, these features are quite a level up from the i20 base model.
The seats of the car are made of cloth like on the Special Edition i20. Nevertheless, the colour mixture on the Turbo Edition is Black and Gray instead of Grey and Blue. Amazing how a colour mixture can alter the dynamics of an interior so much. Nevertheless, we truly believe that the Turbo Edition’s interior looks cooler.
2017 Hyundai i20 Engine specs
Hyundai used the 2017 i20 Turbo Model to experience their completely new 1.0 liter three cylinder engine. It could make 100 horsepower and moves from 0 to 60 in 10.4 seconds. Pretty rapidly for a one liter three cylinder! The engine is mated with a five stage manual transmission and the engine comes with the Energy Regeneration Program (ERS). When the car brakes the kinetic energy that is created is transformed in to energy and stored in the car’s battery.
2017 Hyundai i20 Tech specs
In the tech department the 2017 Hyundai i20 Turbo Edition is doing just as well as the Unique Edition. That means you can assume Wireless, digital radio, a rear view camera and automated high supports with dark sensor. The car comes added to satellite navigation and a seven year TomTom Stay Services subscription. This system is useful in giving traffic data, speed camera alerts, weather and Stay Point of Interest alerts.
2017 Hyundai i20 Price and release date
The 2017 Hyundai i20 Turbo Model has gone for sale in the UK and in the UK only. This country is the just one which gets the turbo Model option as such. Other Western countries have got some updates such as the 16 inch combination wheels on the higher trims of the i20. Overall, the market for the Turbo Model was probably a bit less convenient there.
Anyhow, the prices for the Turbo Model start at £12,975. Exciting fact is that the regular i20 could be configured to be just like the Turbo Model, but that price will then reach £14,025. That means the Turbo Model amounts to a £1,050 discount and certainly shows its worth in being released.
