What Car? takes the Hyundai i20 out for a test drive

What Car? has got its hands on the new ultra-efficient Hyundai i20 1.4 CRDi Blue Drive, putting its low carbon emission claims to the test.

According to the manufacturer, the car has CO2 emissions of just 98 g/km, which means it is exempt from the London Congestion Charge and road tax as well as being better for the environment.

The reviewer noted that while low emission cars are often frustrating to drive at low speeds because of long gearing, the Blue Drive is no different to the regular diesel i20.

"It achieves its 76.4mpg through aerodynamic tweaks, low-rolling-resistance tyres and an engine stop-start system," What Car? explained.

As for the interior of the car, the news provider reported that it is no much different from the regular i20, with easy-to-use dashboard controls and an adjustable steering wheel.

It added that while the vehicle "might be cheap � it's surprisingly well equipped".

"Alloy wheels, air-conditioning, four electric windows, Bluetooth, stability control and six airbags all fitted as standard," the reviewer noted, claiming it is "cracking value for money".
