Review

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.

Arguably the main reason for buying N Line trim is the more powerful 99bhp 1.0 T-GDi engine, although you get a few other upgrades, too. These include trim-specific 16in alloy wheels, a sportier front grille with integrated LED running lights, a dual-exit chrome exhaust, LED rear lights and red stripes on your front and rear bumpers. Inside you get an 8.0in touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, N-Line branding in a few choice spots, a dark headlining and red detailing on the vents. A Tech Pack that includes nav and wireless phone charging is optional.

To make the most powerful engine in the range, Hyundai takes the 1.0-litre three -cylinder base engine and straps on a turbocharger. Power is 99bhp, giving a 0-62mph time of 10.5sec with plenty of verve from low in the rev-range. It’s only available in sporty N Line trim and quite a bit less efficient than the non-turbo engines, though.
