£8,695 Hyundai i20 OTR (£1,400 saving)

103
Found 4th Jul 2013
I was looking at gettin one of these when they were £10k.

on paper they seem like a smart investment.
£30 a year road tax (1st year included free)

1.2 engine
84BHP
57.6MPG combined

parkers says they're 12.3 seconds to 60mph - so they seem a little quicker than most of the smaller eco-boxes.


feel free to leave comments! - I'm interested in suggestions for a cheap non-slow, non-small eco car.

Only three doors but the features list looks good, actually it looks too good to be true, do you really get all that?

pic shows 5 door?

Good price. I wonder what depreciation is like on these.

Got mine year ago I30 PRIMIUM model for £1200, list price was £1850. Cruise control, climate control 17" alloy wheels, leather seats, automatic wipers ... Road tax £30, in town 49MPG. Plus got 1 year free servicing. Very happy!!! Takes me from A to B with no problems!!!

" £1200 " for a new i30, now that is impressive.oO

Shop around, you can get a new 5 door i20 Active model for under ten grand if you haggle.

Has alloys, electric mirrors, electric rear windows, steering wheel controlled audio etc.

Anyone know how this compares to the Mazda 2.

both me and hubby have these cars great 5 year parts and labour included, only need to have service once a year, some garages have offers on prepaid service as well. well recommended car

Just got rid of a 61 plate i20. God awful car.
Never out of garage with problems:- clutch, electric windows, seats, dashboard rattles. Google i20 problems & there's a whole load of issues.
Fuel consumption figures from manufacturer are wildly optimistic.
Had a very poor experience with Hyundai & would never buy another.
I lost £3500 in 15 months. Not happy but glad to see back of it.

My neighbour has a 59 plate i20, loves it, never had a thing go wrong with it.

Surely that depends on mileage also. Yearly intervals are becoming less commonplace with manufacturers moving to two year or wear based. Although I prefer to service my cars yearly as I only do about 6k a year nowadays.

Wouldn't you rather have a 3 door VW UP?

Iam happy with my Ford fiesta not going to Korean made last only two years

Smaller class of car, and very basic compared to i20.

Decent car tbf, most uncomfortable seats EVER though.

Where is the Fiesta made?

How long is the warranty?

Depends if you are planning on carrying anyone taller than a few feet in the rear or much in the boot.
There's 16 inches in length difference between the two cars.

Germany

Three years as you already know.

I like my Hyundai cars they are so reliable I keep each car for 3 years, I have owned a accent, i10 and now a i30, never had any issue, just drive of the forecourt and only return once a year for a service, I think ment time I will return back to the i10 1.2 litre very economical and is quite lively little motor due to that 1.2 kappa engine it has better acceleration than my 1.4 litre i30....

Banned

rather buy a Dacia Duster for that money.

[quote=liverpoolla]Anyone know how this compares to the Mazda 2.[/

Hyundai is way better than ford owned Mazda, Hyundai want a reputation of excellent reliability and customer care, they also no there product is good hence why they have confidence to offer 5 years unlimited mileage warranty. ask your self how often do you see a Hyundai or skoda on the hard shoulder compared to the amount of fords and there sister companies???

I have the top spec Kia Proceed which is almost the same as the i30 (but better imo). Same company i think owns both kia and hyundai

Fantastic car. 1.6 TDI, leather trim, climate control, metalic paint, built in hands free which you answer on the sterring wheel, blue tooth, 65mpg and a seven year warranty.

Paid £10,000 brand new but my mate works for them so got it dirt cheap

I have a 60 plate i20 .
Love it ,had it almost two years . Great on petrol , air con , comfy seats . No problems at all .
Would buy another one in a few years time .

Of course, you could pay Ford another £240 to bring the warranty up to Hyundai 5 year standards, but that doesn't include the 5 year roadside recovery that Hyundai give.(_;)

We've got an i10, no complaints after over 4 years

I was looking at them at £5995 on the road but the Hyundai I10 for that … I was looking at them at £5995 on the road but the Hyundai I10 for that extra thousand is way the better option, 5 year unlimited mileage warranty, air con, elec windows cd/mp3 radio all as standard plus 62 mpg to the gallon compared to the Dacia at 47mpg and road tax only £30. When you can get a i10 brand new on the road for £6995 with plenty of extras and the peace of mind 5 year warranty there is just no point in messing buying a seconed hand car and throwing money at it to keep it on the road......



How can you compare a Duster to an i10, it's almost twice the size and you can have a 7 year warranty on a Dacia.

Ford doesn't own Mazda since errm 2010 , so very outdated info.

i love Mazda would be my preferred choice.

and if you do motorway driving then need 1.4lt and up really

To be honest, you can just get unlucky with cars. I know people who have had endless problems with pretty much every manufacturer.

Basically, you need like a week long test drive of any car :P

Thanks for your reply. Gutted. I bought a Mazda 2 a few months back. Mainly cause they are known to be reliable. I knew hyundai were too. But think Mazda had the best deal, on at the time. I did not know about them being owned by ford. Disappointing from the point of view, that, I had a ford focus last year, and had allot of problems with partial filter etc. This deal probably would have been better for me. O well..

You have made me feel allot better about me buying Mazda. Was feeling a bit gutted really. Thanks

We've had an i10 as our 2nd car for 4 years now. We bought it with the scrappage scheme so was a bargain. £30 tax, insurance approx £150, economical and very nippy. I'm sure the i20 would be just as good.

Service it at Ford and have European breakdown cover included indefinitely.
ford.co.uk/Own…nce

Of course if people are planning on keeping a car longer and do low-average miles and warranty is a concern then buy a Vauxhall.

I found Hyundai reliabilty to be very good.
I bought a 11 months old Hyundai Matrix 9 years ago, just got rid of it.
Problems over the 9 years was:-
Needed 1 new battery, kept going flat after 5 years when the interior light was left on.

Then 2 months ago it developed a fault with the central locking, it was making a rattling noise, it wasn't worth fixing it, I pulled the fuse for the door lock and got a new car instead.
33mpg and £260 per year car tax was another reason it had to go.

You missed out the " non-transferable " part of the Vauxhall warranty..

You missed out the "keeping a car longer and do low-average miles".

If you are the kind of person that buys a new car every couple of years then the warranty is an after thought.
However if you plan on keeping the car from new long term, Vauxhalls, Kias or Dacia extended warranty makes sense.

Without Googling, I'm willing to bet that Friday and Monday are regular working days just like Saturday and Sunday in Korean car factories

Does sound like oor_wullie had a lemon there.
