I just bought an i20 sports petrol variant and I noticed that when I am in the car and driving some one can open the boot (usually the security guards do that to check).

Am I missing out on locking something? may be the driver's door from inside perhaps (should try that).

Excuse me if its a stupid question, this is my first car and I have not really driven any other either.

Their is an option that can be programmed into the computer that locks the doors automatically when a certain speed is reached, mine locks at about 20 mph, I would assume that this is available worldwide so it may be worth talking to your dealer. I would think he would activate it free if you ask.

So it's locked when you're above 20, unlocked below? Can this still be over-ridden if you're in an undesirable area?

No once you go over 20 the central locking locks - it only opens again when a door is opened from the inside, & it cannot be opened from the outside

Not sure if this is a good idea - what happens if you're in a crash and someone is trying to open the car door to get you out?

I think that in case of a crash the locks automatically unlock.
I remember that i've read something like that in the manual.

I almost never drive with locks closed, just at night in an underground parking garage, or at night in other places where there aren't (many) other people i use the central locking

Thanks Guys, the driver side door lock - locks the other doors as well as the hold. I should have tried that earlier (did try and verify).
