We love the Hyundai i10. In 1.2 Premium trim, it was named the overall winner of Best City Car at this year's What Car? Car of the Year awards, and we've also named the same 1.2-litre engine with automatic transmission as the best automatic city car on the market.
There can be some tempting discounts available on the zippy and practical city car, including more than £1500 off the cost of a new model.
The car: Hyundai i10 1.2 SE auto
The saving: £1556

Small on the outside, but big on talent, the Hyundai i10 is our favourite city car. In 1.2-litre guise, the 86bhp motor keeps the i10 up to speed without too much complaint.
Striking a good balance between body control and suppleness over bumps, the i10 is comfortable enough to use on poor road surfaces, yet stable enough to inspire confidence on twisty roads.
Visibility is good and the controls in the cabin are logically laid out, while the supportive driver’s seat adjusts for height on all but base-spec models. Inside, there’s space for four six-footers to get comfortable.
A five-year warranty with annual vehicle checks and roadside assistance adds to the peace of mind enjoyed by Hyundai owners. Equally, all cars get six airbags, stability control and a tyre-pressure-monitoring system.
Fuel economy is much worse with the automatic transmission as opposed to the manual, with CO2 emissions jumping up to 142g/km from 114g/km.
Should I add any options?
Electric front windows, central locking, a CD player and USB socket come as standard, and SE trim adds air-con, remote central locking, electric rear windows, driver's seat-height adjustment and electrically adjustable heated door mirrors.
Different paint options are available, priced at £515.
