There are 7 Hyundai i10 versions available
Target Price team says:
If you spend all your time in town, the 1.0-litre three-cylinder version is a good choice: it’s nippy enough and is impressively refined. The 1.2-litre four-cylinder models are noticeably faster and not much more expensive, though, so we’d go for one of those.
SE trim offers a good blend of value and equipment; it comes with air-con, electric windows all round, driver’s seat-height adjustment and electrically adjustable heated door mirrors. We’d definitely recommend buying it over S Air (available on the 1.0-litre versions only), which is a little cheaper but has a lot less kit. You have to buy a top-spec Premium model to get Bluetooth, though, and we think it's worth doing.
The good news is that all versions of the i10 get six airbags, stability control and a tyre-pressure-monitoring system as standard – as well as Hyundai’s unlimited-mileage, five-year warranty, which also includes five years of roadside assistance cover and annual vehicle health checks.
