Dislike

Cons

  • This is a small city car, so you won't find the cavernous interior of a Land Rover here. But Hyundai have made clever use of the space available.

Fun and practicality combined

More upscale design and interior

From the outside, the new i10 is still recognisably a small city car, it has a lot of the features you’d expect from this lineage. But, the Hyundai design team have gone to town on the little flourishes that give this small car a big personality. They describe the design inspiration as being human muscle covered in athletic fabric, which to be honest, sounds a little serial killer-ish. Their point though, is that the new i10 has an athleticism to it. It has an energy to it. This car looks like it could bound along the running track with barely contained kineticism, like a particularly excited puppy. It looks fun, it looks nippy, and it looks quite stylish into the mix.

The i10’s updated nose gives it a perkiness that the previous generation lacked.

Inside you’ll be surprised with the level of trim. It is still a city car so there are some cheaper materials than you’d find in a top of the line executive model. But, overall the new i10 feels more premium than much of its competition. The list of optional and included tech is pretty impressive for a car of this class. You can load up with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, apple CarPlay and Android Auto and even a wireless charging pad for your phone.

Roomier than you’d think

Living in a city, you’re probably well used to the chore that parking can be. Small city cars make plenty of sense in cities with parking spaces at a premium. But there’s no need to be overly martyrish with regards to interior space in the i10. It’s surprisingly roomy inside and the i10 has the largest boot in its class meaning you can drive to the shops on the weekend and actually fit your shopping in the boot for the way home.

Even with the seats up the i10 has a pretty generous boot, but a 60-40 split rear bench makes for a spacious load-area that you won’t find in many cars of this size.

Summary

A small city car with a big personality, the all-new i10 has better looks, better equipment, and better safety technology than its predecessor. All in all, it's a fun car to drive and it's more practical than you'd expect a car of this size to be.
