So you ask if the Hyundai i10 is a good car? Yes, here is why:
The previous i10 was a good car, but it looked a little, well, awkward.
That has been rectified in the current model, however: Hyundai’s European design studio has styled a cute little city with a twist of sophistication.
It looks right at home in the modern metropolis, with its hexagonal grille and strip of daytime running lights and should appeal to stylish city dwellers.
The i10 is a city car, so it’s unreasonable to expect a great of kit as standard, but it’s not exactly barren in there: central locking, electric front windows, CD/tuner/USB and Isofix are standard on all versions and, depending on the trim level you opt for, you can get Bluetooth connectivity with voice recognition, steering wheel controls and LED daytime running lights.
Not bad for under 11 grand.
3. Good to drive
The last i10 was a quite fun to drive, but the new version has reined that in a bit in favour of a more consistent experience.
There’s plenty of grip, it feels well balanced and the steering is light, but just as it should be for a city car (making it easier to turn and park in tight spaces).
The i10 might be a compact city car, but it’s surprisingly spacious inside, with adults even to fit in the rear without too much contortion.
The occupants aren’t discomforted too much, either, by the ride: the car copes well with the speed humps in town and even manages to remain stable out on faster roads alongside larger vehicles.
5. Cheap to run
The two petrol engines – a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder and a four-cylinder 1.2 – are not exactly the most powerful you’ll ever control, but the upside is that official consumption figures of 60.1 and 57.6mpg will mean visits to the filling station won’t be too regular.
CO2 emissions of 108g/km and 114g/km also mean vehicle excise duty also won’t break the bank.
Then when you factor in insurance groups of 1 to 4, the i10 makes a strong case for one of the cheapest cars to run on the road today.
Hyundai i10 warranty offers a five-year, unlimited mileage warranty, plus five years of roadside assistance and five years of annual vehicle health checks, so it’s confident that owners are not going to be clogging up its dealership service centres with problems.
Results of recent customer satisfaction surveys also suggest that owners are happy with the day-to-day running of their cars – and that’s always a good sign.
7. Holds its value
The i10 really started to make serious inroads into the city car market during the scrappage scheme a few years ago and despite its greater availability since then, second-hand values have remained strong.
The blend of reliability and low running costs make it particularly appealing to young drivers looking for a first car, so when you come to sell yours, you should be able to get a decent price for it.Article source: http://www.express.co.uk/life-style/cars/572187/7-reasons-buy-Hyundai-i10
