Cheaper i20 1.4 auto launched

The Star Early Edition - - NEW MODELS - MO­TOR­ING STAFF

HYUNDAI has in­tro­duced a cheaper ver­sion of its 1.4-litre i20 with an au­to­matic gear­box. The new 1.4 Mo­tion Au­to­matic comes in at R249 900, which is R25 000 less than the same model in fancier Fluid trim.

Both mod­els use the same 74kW/133Nm petrol en­gine and four­speed auto trans­mis­sion, but the lower Mo­tion de­riv­a­tive does with­out electric rear win­dows, fold­ing mir­rors, fog lights, a lug­gage net and rear park­ing sen­sors. It also gets 14-inch steel wheels in place of 16-inch al­loys, and gets a sim­pler air-con­di­tioner in­stead of the Fluid’s full cli­mate con­trol.

Stan­dard fare in the new Mo­tion Auto also in­cludes a six-speaker sound sys­tem with USB and Aux in­puts, Blue­tooth phone pair­ing, re­mote cen­tral lock­ing and steer­ing con­trols.

All Hyundais come stan­dard with seven-year/200 000km war­ranties, and the 1.4-litre i20s get three-year/60 000km ser­vice plans.

Mo­tion cuts 25K from up­per Fluid spec.
