The old-model Hyundai i10 was highly popular in the UK, and now there's a new, even more stylish version on the market.
Power takes the form of either a three cylinder 1.0-litre or a four cylinder 1.2-litre petrol. For anything other than town driving, opt for the more powerful version as the 1.0-litre struggles at speed.
The suspension does a great job of limiting body lean through the corners, while still managing to soak up imperfections in the road.
The steering though does lack feel and is not up to scratch with its rivals, although It is light, which really helps when squeezing into tight spaces. Getting comfy is easy in all models except for the entry-level version which lacks seat height adjustment.
The dash layout is clutter free and all the controls are well positioned and easy to use. The i10 is the most spacious car in its class, meaning all occupants, including those over six foot, will stay comfy even on long journeys. The boot is a good size too, with folding rear seats.
All in all, the Hyundai i10 is a fantastic city car. It's refined, practical and cheap to run, however some of its rivals are better built and more desirable, and the interior isn't as stylish.
