The Hyundai i10 has been around since 2008 when it caused quite a stir in the citi-car market, thanks to the fact that it was affordable and well-equipped. This second generation version won the Irish car of the year award for 2014 and it is easy to see why. For a small car it is extremely practical with the biggest boot of any car in its class. It is easy to access the back seats thanks to the wide opening rear doors and once in there you will find there is plenty of space with room for three across the back. Even the entry level model as a USB compatible stereo and no less than six air bags as standard. The interior is surprisingly upmarket with high-quality plastics all around. The three-cylinder 1 litre petrol and 1.2 litre petrol engines are incredibly economical and help the car to hold its own on the motorway.
