Interior

What is it like on the inside?

It’s a very well packaged car, the i20N. Outwardly small at just over four metres long and 1.75 wide, but able to fit four adults without too much of a squeeze. The low floor means feet dangle and knees aren’t bent and forced into the backs of the front seats. Luggage capacity (352 litres) is OK, plus the seats fold and there’s underfloor storage if you need more.

And it acts the part of a proper hot hatch up front. There’s the N buttons and bright red rev match button on a steering wheel that is arguably too thick-rimmed, but actually in keeping with seats that are well bolstered at the sides, but possibly too broad in between to properly lock you in place. Could do with the steering wheel jabbing into your chest a bit more, but on the whole this feels and acts the part – probably more so than the Fiesta, and definitely once you take into account the stuff you get to play with.

There are screens and modes galore, graphs of G force and torque, Launch Control, a Performance Driving Data System and more. There’s plenty to keep you busy and it feels very complete in here – nothing’s missing from the kit list and although some of the plastics – especially the strip across the dash – are on the shiny side, there’s no impression that the quality isn’t up to scratch.
