Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    BMW 3 Series

    • Styling. Low, sporty and all things fun! M Sport variant looks delicious.
    • Punchy engines. Pick the petrol or the diesel, both promise to please with performance.
    • Quality. Interior now feels like a scaled-down 5 Series in earnest.

    Hyundai i20

    • Looks edgy and aggressive
    • Powertrain options for every need
    • Loaded with good quality features
    • Rear seat space is impressive

    BMW 3 Series

    • Silly feature omissions: 360° camera, keyless entry, Android Auto - all missing.
    • Low seating and tight kneeroom means it’s less than ideal for the chauffeur-driven.
    • Most of the 480-litre boot is taken up by the spare wheel.

    Hyundai i20

    • Turbo-petrol variants priced at a premium
    • Brakes feel spongy
    • Suspension should have been better damped
    • Doesn't feel like a sporty hatchback to handle
