Hyundai i20 N (2021 - 2024) - MPG and running costs

A combined 40mpg-odd figure will be largely impossible to match unless you have a heart of stone

Evo rating
Price
from £25,750
  • A brilliantly executed package that’s a serious threat to the Fiesta ST
  • Ride can be a bit thumpy; engine lacks sparkle

Hyundai claims an economy figure of 40.4mpg, which is on-par with its key rivals. Driven sensibly or mostly on motorways and reaching that figure won’t be impossible, but get heavy with the right foot and it’ll quickly chew into that figure.

As also experienced in the i30 N, keep the car in one of its more boisterous driver modes and those pops and bangs also have a marked effect on overall MPG. Thankfully, its appetite for consumables will likely be less vicious thanks to that relatively low kerb weight. Prices for the bespoke Hyundai-marked Pirelli P Zero tyre will vary depending on your supplier, but BlackCircles.co.uk have them priced at £135 per unit (not fitted).

General reliability of the i20 N is also certain to be good, as the trade-off of having a relatively uninteresting engine is the fact it will have gone through extensive iterations and testing. Being a supermini, other consumables such as the brake pads and discs should also fare well, unless trackdays are a frequent activity.
