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.
The best blend of value and equipment is SE trim, since it brings air-conditioning, 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.
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.
