Hyundai unveils Belgium-bound ix20 Cross

March 31, 2014
Hyundai’s Belgian arm has lifted the veil off of a more rugged version of the ix20 subcompact hatchback called ix20 Cross.

Riding on a modified Soul platform, the ix20 Cross stands out from a regular ix20 thanks to a new front fascia with a revamped grille and a deeper bumper. Plastic trim on the rocker panels and the wheel arches add a touch of ruggedness, and gray 16-inch alloy wheels mounted on all-season tires wrap up up the look.

Inside, the ix20 Cross boasts a long list of standard equipment including tinted windows, a leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, a touch screen-based navigation system, a rear-view camera, cruise control and automatic air conditioning. The car features seven years’ worth of free navigation updates.

Buyers can choose from a wide array of four gasoline- and diesel-burning engines whose outputs range from 90 to 115 horsepower. Although the ix20 Cross is front-wheel drive only, a slightly raised ground clearance and skid plates on both ends help it clear minor obstacles with relative ease.

On sale now, the Hyundai ix20 Cross carries a base price of €16,999 (about $23,450) once a €3,700 (approximately $5,000) discount is factored in. At the time of writing Hyundai is not planning on selling the ix20 Cross outside of Belgium.
