The rugged New i20 Active will further expand the appeal of the i20 range when it goes on sale in Europe from early 2016, joining the spacious, refined i20 five-door and the sporty, individual i20 Coupe. The compact crossover includes a distinctive design and increased versatility for customers with adventurous lifestyles.

i20activeTo give the i20 Active a characteristic crossover stance, revised suspension settings increase the car’s ground clearance by 20 mm compared to the five-door, with the seating position also raised to give superior visibility. Its unique rugged crossover features like the skid plates on the front and rear and cladding on the wheel arches set it apart from conventional B-segment models and heighten its appeal for new customers.

The 100 PS version is tuned to maximise fuel economy, while the 120 PS unit has been developed to facilitate more spirited driving without sacrificing efficiency.

Pricing for the i20 Active is likely to be announced following its Frankfurt debut, but it’s expected to cost more than the regular hatchback, which starts at £10,995.
