The new Hyundai i20 Turbo Edition will cost from £12,975 when it arrives in showrooms this month.
The five-door compact hatchback costs less than the current SE-trim i20 with the equivalent engine, but Hyundai has managed to cram in more standard equipment.
The latest addition sports Hyundai’s three-cylinder, 99bhp 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, which makes 99bhp and emits CO2 emissions of 104g/km, putting it into band B for Vehicle Excise Duty. The existing SE-spec i20, with the same powertrain but smaller wheels, emits 99g/km of CO2 and slots into the cheaper VED band A, but costs £14,025 on the road.
The Hyundai i20 Turbo Edition rides on 16in alloy wheels and is available in a choice of Polar White, Aqua Sparkling, Sleek Silver, Stardust Grey, Phantom Black or Red Passion finishes.
Like the SE, the Turbo Edition gets Bluetooth connectivity, a DAB digital radio, cruise control and speed limiter and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. In addition, the Turbo Edition comes with a rear-view camera, automatic lights and satellite navigation on a 7.0in touchscreen.
Owners will get a free seven-year TomTom Live Services subscription for the sat-nav, which gives live traffic information, speed camera alerts and weather updates.
A spokesman for Hyundai said 1000 Turbo Editions would be coming to the UK initially, but more could follow if it proves popular with customers.
