Video review – Hyundai i20 1.1 CRDi

A behind the scenes shot as we get the cars ready for the test drives

On location in Greece, I took the i20 CRDi from Hyundai on review.  For this drive I used the 1.1 3 cylinder diesel engine (spoiler alert – this is a great diesel engine with power when required and a nice gearbox, but it’s let down by some poor thinking on the interior as regards the dash brightness and the lack of driver aids and gadgets).

Overall I was impressed with this little car, but a few niggles meant that the i20 didn’t come out of the review with such a great score.  Have a look at the videos below to see what I thought of it.  Below the videos you’ll find the specs table too.
