Outside of an Avis you probably wouldn’t have the old Hyundai i10. With the height-to-width of a telegraph pole, the same of visual interest, and a cabin majored on spaciousness instead of it was a true function-before-form car. decent to drive, despite the styling, but that trait was on the geriatric customer base.

Now there’s a new version. expected to 75,000 sales when it on sale in January 2014. on for the CAR verdict.

The new Hyundai i10 actually like it’s been though!

Yes, at the third of asking, Hyundai has had a crack at drawing a funky city and on the hole, nailed the brief. designed, engineered, and built in for our tastes, it’s as derivative as and chips in a Parisian bistro, but funky all the same, if not as cool as the lines of the more desirable VW Up .

At least it no longer like a minibus…

That’s thanks to an all new set: 80mm longer, lower, and 65mm wider. So not does the new i10 look like survive a mild crosswind, but the is more spacious, the boot the previously class-leading VW by one litre (at and it’s stronger, stiffer, and Plus, thanks to nerdy like moving the radio to the rear of the roof and remoulding the mirrors, the new i10 is the slipperiest city car you can

What’s it like to

Refined, delivering on Hyundai’s that you get supermini manners in a car package. There’s much noise than the deafening old and all the controls have been too, with lighter a less mechanical-feeling gearshift, and up-to-scratch brakes. The noise of the four-cylinder engine, a carryover the existing i10, is better but you’d be mad to choose it over the any slower and infinitely more 1.0-litre three-cylinder, which coughs out less CO2 and boasts a 2.4mpg economy advantage.

It’s actually a quieter than the VW Up trio, thanks to clever hydraulic engine and an 11mm offset crank to vibration, plus a wealth of soundproofing and seals. Despite all the new car is slightly lighter than too.


The new Hyundai i10 still create the same pang of as a VW Up. but it is better value, on a par for overall and substantially more … its predecessor too. Go for the 1.0-litre and mid-range trim for the best and you’ll get a refined, useful and (at moderately handsome baby
