    My car

    An excellent town car and very good on the motorway too. Excellent visibility and very quiet also. The auto box on my 1.2 Comfort is also similarly excellent - the best auto box I've driven! Very good build quality and good MPG as well! I thoroughly recommend this car - and when you see the price, you will be blown away from the competition. Oh and a 5 year unlimited mileage warranty too!

    My car

    We looked at the Renault Twingo (wife wanted 5 doors), Smart For2 (she hated it and only 2 doors), Citroen C1, and Pugeot/Toyota versions (TOO noisy) Skoda Fabia (too big), and went to the Hyundai dealer as a last resort.. She loved it :) My wife wanted a 1.2 Comfort Auto but there wasn't one available so settled for a 1.1 as we thought that Comfort and Auto combined were worth more than 0.1. Excellent city car, in town we can't fault it, the high seating position (and rear parking sensors) gives my wife new confidence in town and parking. As we live about 5 mins from our mutual office and less than 10 mins from the nearest shopping mall we feel we chose the right car for the job, so far we've taken the i10 on one 75mile M-Way trip and although it won't be my choice it's capable of doing the job when required, which will be about 12 times a year. It's just too light and suffers from side winds on the m-way, but is not uncomfortably noisy at 70mph. Sound system drowns what there is anyway. Fuel consumtion is so low it's not worth calculating. Build quality seems to be excelent and materials are better than expected. Gripes? We would have paid more for a higher spec but thats not the market its aimed at! Conclusion: If you want a city car with 5 doors, look no further!

    My car

    I love this little car to bits. My wife hates the look of it. Each to their own.

    It's easy to drive and an amazing amount of kit for the money. We downsized from the i30 simply to save money all round: on tax, insurance, petrol and repayments.

    You feel six inches taller as the driving position is high; more so than the i30, but that suits me fine. Gears are a breeze to select, which I prefer from the i30, which were a lot stiffer. The intermittent wipes aren't variable, but that's a tiny gripe. The seats are firm, which I like and I can still plug my iPod in through the Aux socket and it sounds great.

    Overall I'm thrilled with it. The only down-side is a small but annoying rattle coming from somewhere around the CD area on the dash, more pronounced over bumpy roads or at low revs. It's been there since day 1 and we're taking it back for the dealer to have a look next week. The road noise while driving isn't too obtrusive, and I'd much rather hear that than this rattle. If that can be fixed it's a definite 5-stars all round.

    My car

    I have now had this car for 3 weeks only and I can only sing its praises. You will have to go far to find anything to compete against it in the price range up to £8000. I use it to commute 100 mile per day and I find it relatively comfortable. The sound system is great and my MP3 player lives in the cubbyhole. Mine has the rear wash/wipe function. The thing that I miss is the intermittent function on the windshield wiper. The engine is more than enough for what I use the car for. The car is not run in yet so I have achieved more than 50mpg yet.
