The Auto Trader expert verdict:
For all the noise about SUVs and crossovers superminis are a big part of the market, the Ford Fiesta this new i20 competes with the biggest selling car in the country. It’s up against a lot of very talented rivals too, the Renault Clio, Peugeot 208 and Toyota Yaris all offering a greater sense style and a choice of powertrains ranging from traditional petrol all the way to full electric. Hyundai has improved the quality for this new i20 and it is very well equipped with plenty of tech, which offsets the relatively high purchase price.
Reasons to buy:
- Generous spec
- Perky turbocharged engine
- Nippy handling
