Hyundai has used the Geneva to present their ix20 2015 . It is a restyling that primarily affects the design, but has also gone a step further in equipment and updated mechanical range which highlights the arrival of a new automatic gearbox 6-speed.
Aesthetically has stepped forward with subtle touches that keep it fresh and modern. Optical teams update form but the biggest news coming from the grill, which completely changes its shape and takes spotlight with chrome rods placed horizontally.
On the back the changes are rather scarce, and only a few contemplated new pilots the same way but with a different arrangement of lights and a new light of more elaborate position. Finally, the Hyundai ix20 2015 updates its range of tires with models 16 and 17 inches.
The interior remains unchanged in design, but improves their equipment. Hyundai has placed a new audio system with iPod, My Music composed for up to 1 GB and Bluetooth connection. Furthermore, we can now opt for heated steering wheel .
The mechanical range gets its own update, with mechanical gasoline and diesel. All comply with rules Euro6 and in the case of diesel engines Hyundai has worked to increase the available torque. Thus, block 1.4 CRDI provides powers 77 and 90 horses with 240 Nm of torque, while the block 1.6 CRDI Delivery powers 115 and 128 horses with 260 Nm of torque.
As for the petrol versions, it is still relying on a block 1.4 updated with 90 horses and another 1.6 also updated with 125 horses power. The biggest news is that the latter petrol engine now discards the 4-speed automatic transmission to host a new 6-speed automatic transmission .
Finally, Hyundai offers Blue Drive version of low consumption and emissions with some special features. Fitted as standard the Start / Stop system, an optimized alternator, low-resistance tires and an active grille opening which reduces when such cooling is not required.
