Dealers have started taking orders for the refreshed Hyundai i20 supermini, at prices starting from £13,995.

Most significant is the introduction of a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission on versions with the 100hp 1.0-litre petrol engine. This unit continues to be offered in 120hp form while there are also 75 and 84hp versions of a 1.2-litre unit.

The Ford Fiesta rival’s mid-life refresh includes mild changes to the exterior look, including adopting the brand’s now signature ‘Cascading Grille’, revisions to the front and rear bumpers and a redesigned tailgate and rear lamps.

Safety specifications have been improved from SE grade (the second of four trim levels). Standard safety equipment on these cars includes Autonomous Emergency Braking, lane-keeping assistance, a driver attention alert and auto high-beam headlamps. Automatic switching on of the headlamps is now standard across the range.

Seven-inch touchscreen standard

Inside, all versions of the new Hyundai i20 are new fitted with a seven-inch touchscreen offering smartphone compatibility through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus DAB digital radio, a rear-view camera and Bluetooth connectivity with steering wheel controls.

The entry £13,995 price buys the i20 S 5 door 1.2-litre 75hp with a five-speed manual transmission. It also includes manual air conditioning, a USB charger, rear door speakers, remote central locking, electric front windows and electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors.

From £15,495 the SE increases engine power to 84hp and adds a bespoke design of 15-inch alloy wheels, front fog lamps, LED daytime running lamps, projector headlamps, rear parking sensors, cruise control with a speed limiter and electric rear windows. Trim additions include a leather steering wheel and gear knob.

The i20 Premium Nav starts at £16,245 and adds 16-inch alloy wheels, dark grey front grille, LED rear lamps, front and rear parking sensors, climate control, privacy glass, power folding mirrors, navigation, automatic wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and front centre armrest.

Finally, the Premium Nav SE tops the range at £17,295 and gains keyless entry and starting, a panoramic sunroof, and heated front seats and steering wheel.
