Hyundai’s new eco-friendly i20 Blue
Hyundai has introduced a new version of its i20 Supermini, called i20 Blue, the company’s another sub-100g/km CO2 model.
The new i20 Blue emits merely 98g/km of CO2, which allows it to beat even the i10 Blue city car that hit roads earlier in the year. Fuel-efficient has been increased from 67.3mpg to 76.4mpg.
The reduction in emissions and increase in fuel-efficiency has been achieved without interfering with the car’s standard 66kW, 1.4 CRDI 89bhp turbodiesel engine.
The innovative emissions-beating measures include stop/start function, low rolling resistance tyres, adding a deflector to the rear wheels and hiding the rear suspension behind a more aerodynamic panel. The measures result into a cut of 12 per cent in CO2 emissions compared with the standard i20 model with the 1.4 diesel engine.
Priced at £13,195, the i20 Blue features 15-inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning, electric heated & folding door mirrors, Bluetooth connectivity with voice recognition, steering wheel audio controls, USB & aux connections, remote central locking and five years of unlimited mileage warranty.
With emissions under 100g/km, the i20 Blue will allow buyers to avail exemption from road tax as well as London’s congestion charge.
