Hyundai’s new i10 competes in a market that features many impressive occupants, but with a number of refinements to the previous model it is sure to appeal to value-conscious motorists. As an agile and emissions-aware supermini, the model sits firmly in the city car bracket but also provides the flexibility required to serve modern active families.
The exterior styling has been carefully designed to reflect the cosmopolitan environment to which it is suited, with vibrant paint colour choices complemented by stylish alloy wheel designs and LED light details. The cabin projects a modern and sophisticated finish to continue the chic trend, and it is obvious that Hyundai’s craftsman have applied close attention to detail on every surface. The dashboard and centre console are simple but not lacking in functions, with every control you would expect to see placed close to hand. At the rear there is plenty of comfort for passengers, and 60/40 seating allows for class-leading boot space for cumbersome loads.
As you would expect from an urban-friendly hatch, the i10 offers agile and efficient performance thanks to nimble steering and a selection of refined engines. Two petrol engines are available, and the1.0-litre 65bhp Blue Drive variation emits a satisfying 98g/km. Choose this option and you will benefit from zero road tax.
Overall, the new i10 faces stiff competition in a segment occupied by many of the industry’s biggest names. However, with eco-conscious performance, advanced technology and a generous warranty, the model more than holds its own.
