New six-speed automatic transmission and engines

  • More powerful gasoline and higher torque diesel engines
  • New six-speed automatic transmission unit boosts fuel economy
  • Comprehensive list of active and passive safety technologies 

- The Euro6 emissions-compliant engine line-up brings even better drivability, with lower fuel consumption and emissions.

To uphold New ix20’s class competitiveness, a new six-speed automatic transmission, as well as power and torque upgrades to the overall Euro6 emissions-compliant engine line-up brings even better drivability, with lower fuel consumption and emissions. The two diesel engines have been enhanced to provide more torque – 240 Nm (1,4-litre) and 260 Nm (1,6-litre) – from just 1500 rpm.

The Continuous Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) 1,4- and 1,6-litre gasoline Hyundai ‘Gamma’ family units have both had efficiency boosted, with the 1,6-litre now available with a six-speed automatic transmission, replacing the previous four-speed unit and delivering improved real-world fuel economy. #

All engines have been enhanced to offer improved driveability and fuel efficiency, as well as meeting Euro6 emission standards.
