Frugal Hyundai i20 Blue Announced
The Korean automaker Hyundai has launched this week the frugal version of the i20 model which is called simply “Blue”. The car is already on sale in United Kingdom for a base price of 13,195 pounds. It was developed to be one of the most economical cars in its class and comes with a not so impressive 1.4-liter CRDi engine that produces 89 hp (90 PS / 66 kW) and has a peak torque of 162 lb.-ft (220 Nm). With this power unit, the car sprints to 62 mph from 0 in 13.5 seconds and hits a maximum speed of 108 mph (174 km/h).
But what makes it interesting is its fuel economy rating of 63.6 mpg (76.4 mpg UK or 3.7 liters / 100 km) while CO2 emissions are of only 98 g/km. The engineers from Hyundai managed to achieve this impressive figure by implementing a stop/start system, low rolling resistance tires as well as underbody paneling.
