Following on from the successful i10 Blue launched at the beginning of the year, Hyundai has now added another sub-100g/km CO2 model to its range – the i20 Blue. With emissions of just 98g/km CO2, it is the lowest emitting vehicle in Hyundai UK’s product line-up.
The i20 Blue is based on the current i20 Comfort trim level mated to the 1.4 CRDi 89bhp engine and is priced at £13,195. To achieve the sub-100g/km CO2 figures, the i20 Blue has the following Blue Drive technologies: Intelligent Stop & Go (ISG), low rolling resistance tyres, rear suspension under cover and rear wheel deflector. With these additional features, the i20 Blue achieves a 12 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions (compared with the current 1.4 CRDi 89bhp Style i20 model) from 111g/km down to just 98g/km. Drivers of the i20 Blue won’t need to be making regular visits to a fuel stationeither. The 1.4 CRDi Euro V compliant four-cylinder engine achieves a remarkable 76.4mpg combined – the sort of cheap-to-run credentials that are important as the cost of motoring continues to rise. This is a 14 per cent improvement on a combined cycle when compared to the i20 1.4 CRDi 89bhp Style model.
To put these figures into perspective, it would cost approximately £63.00 to fill up the i20 Blue with a tank of diesel and this would generate a range of 755 miles! As well as excellent fuel economy, the i20 Blue also gains exemption from VED and the London Congestion Charge as it emits less than 100g/km CO2. The i20 Blue also comes with plenty of standard equipment including 15” alloy wheels, Bluetooth connectivity with voice recognition, electric heated and folding door mirrors, electric front and rear windows, steering wheel audio controls, USB and aux connections air conditioning and remote central locking.
Sitting alongside the i10 Blue, the new i20 Blue model demonstrates Hyundai’s continuous commitment to increasing the efficiency of both its petrol and diesel engines. On-sale now, and like all Hyundai passenger cars, the Hyundai i20 Blue comes with a Five Year Triple Care package, which includes a five-year, unlimited mileage, manufacturer backed warranty, five years of roadside assistance and five years of annual vehicle health checks.
