This clever, compact car makes light work of everyday driving with the family. Its tall shape affords a vast amount of room inside, yet it’s smaller than a mid-sized hatchback making it easy to drive around town.
Unlike many MPVs, the ix20 is far from feeling bulky. The clean lines mirror that of a stylish supermini and the rear is perfectly in proportion to the rest of the car. Slicing contours along the side and the bonnet give it a mature feel, while the large headlights and grille create a charming guise. Chrome inserts on the grille, 16-inch alloy wheels and automatic headlights are all standard features.
The interior of the ix20 is made for practicality. Make more space for your passengers or gain extra room in the boot by sliding or reclining the rear seats. With plenty of height, there’s lots of headroom and legroom for passengers to relax in comfort on longer journeys. As the driver, you get to enjoy a minimal, glossy black dashboard that’s illuminated in a striking blue tone. You also benefit from a raised seating position which gives you a broad road view.
Just over four metres in length, the ix20 offers a stress-free driving experience around town. You can park easily thanks to the compact size and the flat back which helps you to gauge the space behind the car. Choose from a 1.4-litre or 1.6-litre petrol, or a 1.6-litre diesel. The 1.6-litre options are mated to a six-speed gearbox that enables you to reach and maintain faster speeds when the car is full. It’s fuel efficient compared to others in its class, with MPG figures ranging from 50 to 65.
While you drive, you can control the radio, CD player or a device connected through the USB port with steering wheel controls. Bluetooth® can sync to your smartphone and you can make calls handsfree via the voice recognition system. Parking sensors take even more hassle out of driving when it comes to getting into tight spaces. Expect to enjoy a safe journey thanks to ESC, hill start assist and ABS, which all come as standard.
