Hi, picking up my new i20 Comfort Automatic on Friday coming, and would really have liked an option for Cruise Control. Has anyone fitted cruise as an aftermarket retrofit? I know there are several UK companies offering the service but would like to hear of any real experience before taking the plunge!

Got my car today, a day earlier than expected. Notice that the Owner's Manual mentions cruise control in section 5:25, but my dealer does not think it is possible to fit due to audio controls on steering wheel. I have sent a request to Hyundai UK.

Got a reply from Hyundai UK stating that cruise control is not an option for the i20, but no explanation as to why there is a section in the Owner's Manual (5:25) regarding cruise control, and even showing a photograph of the controls on the steering wheel. Does anybody know if cruise control is an option in any other country apart from the UK?

Yes, cruise contol is standard on i20 CRDi in sweden, as for aftermarket on i20 i dont know,but when i was thinkin of buying an i30, the dealer offered me to put in cruise control themselfs. tot cost for this would be about 1000 euro

Yes, fitting cruise to an i30 is not a problem in UK because there are no controls on the right hand side of the steering wheel. Does the i20 in Sweden have bluetooth as well as audio controls on the steering wheel or is something omitted to make way for cruise controls?

Aftermarket option may not be possible if Hyundai do the same as other manufacturers (eg Fiat) and fit different wiring looms to each trim level and also vary the loom from country to country. It appears to be a cost thing. Upshot of this is the body computer may not recognise aftermarket or retrofit electricals, so make sure you double check this before taking the plunge. (My dealer told me that the foglights as fitted to the Style are not available on the Comfort because of this).
