Hyundai has added a new eco-friendly, road tax and congestion charge exempt model to its range.
The I20 Blue, based on the current I20 Comfort and mated to the 90bhp 1.4 CRDi, emits 98g/km of CO2.
Previously the engine has only been seen in the top-of-the-range Style but now Hyundai’s Blue Drive technologies have reduced emissions by 12%. These feature intelligent stop and go, low rolling resistance tyres, rear suspension under cover and rear wheel deflector.
Fuel economy is also improved – with an official combined mpg of 76.4, 14% better than the equivalent Style model.
The I20 Blue follows the launch of the petrol-powered I10 Blue earlier this year and is the lowest emitting vehicle currently sold by Hyundai in the UK.
Standard equipment includes 15-inch alloys, 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.
The I20 Blue is priced at £13,195 OTR and is on sale now.
