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.

We’d recommend upgrading to SE Connect for its enhanced infotainment system – with an 8.0in touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto – a rear-view camera and 15in alloy wheels (in place of wheel trims). It also opens up the ability to have our favourite 1.2 MPi 84 engine, too.

Despite costing not much more to buy - especially on a monthly PCP - this 83bhp 1.2-litre engine is a bit more acceleration (0-62mph takes 12.6sec), much happier at speed than the 1.0 MPi 67 and more refined, with very little impact on economy or emissions. Available with a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic gearbox - the latter is essentially the same gearbox but with a robot working the clutch and gears for you, and gear changes can be very slow.
