The New i10 Catches The Eye

The previous model i10 was a decent car but wasn’t terribly exciting, even for a city car. Nevertheless, it was extremely popular with the buying public as a good value drive. The old car has now been superseded by the New Generation Hyundai i10 and is available with prices starting from £8,345 OTR. The new i10 certainly looks the part with a refreshed and modern design and has been widely praised for its exemplary levels of refinement, driving characteristics, safety and value.

Just two engines are on offer: a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol with 65bhp and a 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol that produces 86bhp. Entry-level S trim is available with the 1.0 engine, while SE and Premium are offered with both engines. You can also get the SE spec with a cleaner version of the three-cylinder engine that has stop-start to drop its CO2 emissions below 100g/km, or the combination of the four-cylinder engine and an automatic transmission.

As standard, the entry-level S Trim (starting at £8,345 OTR) gets Daytime Running Lights, central locking, electric front windows, USB with AUX connection and a host of safety equipment including Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), six airbags, Tyre Pressure Monitoring and Vehicle Stability Management (VSM). That’s a decent amount of kit for entry level.

Moving up to the mid-range SE trim, buyers get electric rear windows, body coloured door handles, electric and heated door mirrors, air conditioning and driver’s seat height adjustment as standard. Prices for these models start at £9,295 OTR. For those customers wanting all the technology and comfort features on the New Generation i10, the range-topping Premium – like the S and SE Trims – represents fantastic value. The Premium trim adds LED Daytime Running Lights, integrated door mirror indicators, steering wheel controls, Bluetooth with voice recognition, leather steering wheel and gear knob and 14-inch alloy wheels over the SE models. Prices begin at £9,995 OTR for the Premium trim derivatives.

Like all the cars from Hyundai, the i10 comes with a five-year unlimited-mileage warranty, five years of roadside assistance cover and five years of annual vehicle heath checks. To ensure all associated costs are transparent and manageable for customers, the i10 is also available with a Fixed Price Service Plan for a one- off payment of £349.

There seems to be a burgeoning market for small good value cars these days and there’s a wide selection to choose from. The new Hyundai i10 looks set to challenge for supremacy in this sector.
