The little Korean comes with a three-cylinder turbo gasoline engine and 48-volt electrical system for the consumption and cost check. What does the mild hybrid support bring in everyday life?
"The i20 not only looks like an athlete, it also sounds, curves and springs like that. And otherwise? Good space, low consumption, best operation and long guarantee." In his conclusion, Clemens Hirschfeld names numerous talents of the Hyundai i20 1.0 T-GDI Hybrid in the N Line equipment. But how low are the consumption values in detail? And how do these and the other cost factors affect everyday life? We have tested and calculated.
Our test consumption
Hyundai states a WLTP standard consumption of 5.4 liters for the small car with a 48-volt mild hybrid drive. In the test, this becomes 6.5 liters, which results in fuel costs of 13.06 euros for the 100-kilometer distance. At 5.2 liters, the Eco consumption is just below the WLTP specification; the equivalent value of the petrol required for 100 kilometers drops to 10.45 euros. Sporty drivers drive consumption to 8.5 liters and with it the fuel costs to 17.08 euros. These are calculated using the daily updated fuel price on our partner portal mehr-tanken.de (02.05.2022 /Super: 2.009 euros/litre).
Monthly maintenance costs
Year after year, a vehicle tax of 77 euros has to be paid for the Hyundai i20 1.0 T-GDI Hybrid N Line. According to Allianz Direct , liability insurance for the 100 hp small car costs 390 euros for the same period. A partially comprehensive upgrade costs a further 83 euros. An additional 527 euros are due for the fully comprehensive policy. All in all, the monthly maintenance costs amount to 251 euros if the Korean is driven 15,000 kilometers a year. If the mileage doubles, the Hyundai costs 453 euros per month. We leave out the loss in value in this calculation.
How to test
The auto motor und sport test consumption consists of three differently weighted consumption runs. So-called “commuter consumption” accounts for 70 percent. This is a journey from home to work, which averages 21 kilometers. A particularly economical, approx. 275-kilometre-long eco-lap is included in the rating with 15 percent. The remaining 15 percent is accounted for by the sports driver lap. The length is roughly the same as the eco lap, but the route includes a larger proportion of motorway and thus higher speeds on average. The basis for calculating the fuel costs is always the price quoted on the "more tanken" portal on the day the article was created.
The monthly maintenance costs include maintenance, wear part costs and vehicle taxes assuming an annual mileage of 15,000 and 30,000 kilometers without loss of value. The calculation is based on the test consumption, a three-year holding period, no-claims class SF12 for liability and fully comprehensive insurance with Allianz Direct, including discounts for garage parkers and the restriction to certain drivers (accident-free/15,000 km per year/resident in the postcode area 70174/not under 21/partner driver older than 25 years).
The Hyundai i20 1.0 T-GDI Hybrid N Line with 100 hp 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbo petrol engine including mild hybrid support costs at least 22,785 euros and consumes an average of 6.5 liters, which translates into fuel costs of 13.06 for 100 kilometers Euro entails. The monthly maintenance costs are 251 euros for an annual mileage of 15,000 kilometers. If this increases to 30,000 kilometers, the sum increases to 453 euros.
