When designing the new generation i10, Hyundai wanted to create something a little different to all the other superminis on the market today. This approach started by creating a fluid exterior to grab attention, and saw the car fitted with efficient engines for low running costs. To complete the appeal, a competitive price tag was then added to give buyers superb value for money.
The i10's sophistication is clear from a single glance at its exterior. This stylish model is grown-up yet also looks great fun to drive, as it merges premium details such as daytime running lights and a rear spoiler with your choice of six paint colours. The front face is unmistakably Hyundai, giving the car a confident expression that reflects its driving energy.
On the inside the i10 is just as elegant, yet is also simple and intuitive to enhance the driving experience. All controls are placed close at hand for convenience, while the comfortable ride position makes even the longest trips a joy. The vehicle leads the class for boot space, and with a split folding rear bench you can adjust the cabin for each journey. There are also generous door bins at the front and rear to keep key items stored where you can reach them instantly.
Six individual trim grades are available to buyers of the supermini, which allows you to choose the variant that stays within budget. Entry-level S fits the i10 with all you could need to be satisfied, including power steering, electric front windows, and an audio system with USB and AUX connectivity. Bluetooth® with voice recognition is an option with mid-range SE, while the leading Premium SE grade includes a heated steering wheel and rear parking sensors as standard.
Petrol engines power your satisfaction in the i10, with four engine/gearbox combinations to select from. The 1.0-litre manual unit produces 65bhp, and includes a Blue Drive version to enhance its cleanliness and efficiency further. With an intelligent start/stop system on board up to 65.7mpg combined is possible, while only 98g/km of CO2 is released. The 1.2-litre alternative sends 86bhp to the road, returning up to 57.6mpg combined when coupled with a manual gearbox.
Whichever engine you opt for you can drive away with the peace of mind that Hyundai’s five-year unlimited mileage warranty is there if you need it. What’s more, this cover also includes roadside assistance for the same period, in the unlikely event you find yourself stranded.
If the above isn’t enough, the new generation i10 is also among the safest in its class. Six airbags are fitted as standard to accompany advanced braking technologies, and there’s plenty more to keep you out of trouble. An Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) works hard to keep the car pointing in the right direction, while the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) warns when the pressure drops below a safe level.
