Snusfornuftige, solid and understated design. It has long been the recipe for Hyundai's model, and it is not changed with the latest facelift of the i20. After three years, the Korean mini-car, got a little more distinctive styling and rear.
Mini opens a series of new safety equipment as well as Apple CarPlay, and the engines got an upgrade as a result of the new european udstødningskrav. It leaves a car, which is experienced more fresh in a bit, but the price smoking quickly in the weather.

Behind the wheel you have a view of a instrumentation that seems a little clinical and fresh. However, it is functional and genuine, and Apple CarPlay have it all to live up to allow for navigation and operation of the phone – even if the system is first standard from the 'Trend'model.
Hyundai has made any improvements when it comes to lædersæderne, which offers tommetyk læderhud a la motorcykeljakker and really good comfort. Steering wheel in leatherette is, however, too suave, and it should be more grip-friendly.
