If you're looking for a small package that offers cultured motoring on a sensible budget, then you must check out the Hyundai i10. It's relatively spacious, comes with a smart-looking interior, a great infotainment system and it rides and drives more impressively than plenty of bigger, pricier cars. The list price might look a bit steep, but if you check out the monthly PCP deals you'll find it's more affordable than it initially looks.

Even this entry-level model comes with automatic lights, air conditioning, electric windows (front and rear), cruise control, electric door mirror adjustment and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearlever. Safety equipment includes automatic emergency braking, e-Call and lane assist, but it does without alloy wheels and only comes with a basic infotainment system (a DAB radio and Bluetooth are included but no touchscreen). Also, you cannot have it with our favourite engine, so we'd suggest jumping up a rung to SE Connect trim.

This entry-level engine is good enough for town work, but needs working hard to maintain speed up hills or on motorways – 0-62mph takes 14.6sec. We'd steer you towards the more powerful 1.2 MPi 84 instead, which in reality won't cost a lot more in fuel because you're not working it as hard. Available with a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic gearbox – the latter is the same but with a robot working the clutch and gears for you, and gear changes can be very slow.
