You Will Get Much More for the Price You Paid!

The Hyundai i10 is very spacious city car, it is also very cheap to run, fun to drive, well equipped and very practical. We can say that is one of the best city car ever made. However, i10 is one of the cheapest cars to buy and you will get much more for the price you paid.

This micro car was introduced in 2008 and was a big hit for Hyundai, making impressive sales in Europe and Asia. In order to improve that success, the new Hyundai i10 offers new improved engines: 1.0-litre petrol ultra efficient integrated in the i10 Blue version and the more powerful 1.25-litre Kappa engine with 86 hp known from the previous model.

The look of the i10 has been changes with the new front hexagonal grille, restyled front lights and tweaked rear lights. There are not too many changes in the interior, but there is a lot of room inside and is very fun to drive. The new Hyundai i10 comes with the company’s best warranty and remains great value.

The Hyundai i10 Driving Impressions!

This vehicle is fun and nippy to drive. It is also light, with accurate steering and soft suspension joined by strong engines. Therefore the i10 is quiet, comfortable and an enjoyable car to drive around town. There is a lot of of usable torque for overtaking on the opne roads. Brakes are pretty good (ABS+BAS equipped) and confidently stops the car without any complaint.

There are 2 petrol engines offered for the i10. The 1.0-litre 3-cylinder engine with 68 hp integrated in the i10 Blue and an 1.25-litre 4-cylinder with 86 hp. The both engines are very quick and agile enough for a city ride and feel very good on the highway. The smallest Hyundai handles well and its gearbox is easy to use.

We were surprised how well the i10 it grips. This small vehicle is very well-damped, its a good handler and with no harshness the passengers.

The i10 is a joy to park with its smooth steering wheel.

Spacious Cabin and Soft Ride is Giving Big Car Feel!

The suspension of the i10 is tuned for comfort, it deals very good with rough roads and
the short wheelbase is very well cushioned and is even better than some mid-size SUVs.

The Hyundai i10’s small but powerful engines are quiet in town as well as on the highway. The interior room is surprisingly generous due to clever packaging and the tall roofline that gives a plenty of headroom.

I10 has  impressive for its class four-Star EuroNCAP safety rating due tu its ABS with EBD and airbags.

Top Quality and the Best in Class Warranty are Giving the Total Peace of Mind!

The strong point of Hyundai is the excellent 5-year warranty together with the “Triple Care” package (warranty, free roadside assistance and vehicle health checks). The quality of the cabin material are solid for this class. However, i10 is cheaper than its rivals and feels more than acceptable for its price.

5-door Flexibility and Spacious Trunk!

For its class and size the i10 has a spacious trunk space of 225 litres. It’s bigger than its rivals Kia Piccanto, Suzuki Alto, Chevrolet Spark and Toyota Aygo. It only comes with wide 5 doors, so accessing the rear seats is very simple even for the larger adults. There is additional under-floor storage (option) in the boot.

Definitely, the Hyundai holds its value for money. It’s impossible to find a better car  for those low list prices. This vehicle is undeniably a very good long-term investment.
