Introduction

What Car? says...

Watches. They come in all shapes and sizes, and to every taste and budget, but the fact is this: if you spend a gazillion quid on a Breitling or a Rolex, it'll tell exactly the same time as that fella over there’s Swatch, which cost the same as a round of fish ’n chips.

And city cars, such as the Hyundai i10, are the Swatches of the car world. Yes, a luxurious limousine will massage your backside as you squeeze it through urban traffic, but when it comes to getting you from the suburbs to the centre, a city car will do the job just as ably. The only difference is, because it’s a darned sight dinkier, you’ll have less stress finding a parking space.

Like a Swatch, the i10 comes in a multitude of colours and represents great value for money. Unlike a Swatch, Hyundai says it'll also carry up to five people and some luggage; so while it's not as big on the outside as other value cars, such as Dacia Sandero, it's still relatively practical.

It sounds like the i10 has all the basics covered, then, but don’t forget the alternatives. Sticking with city cars, you can pick from the Kia Picanto, Volkswagen Up and Toyota Aygo to name but a few. And as we've already mentioned, there are larger cars, like the Sandero, available for similar money.

Over the next few pages, we’ll report on how the i10 drives, what it’s like inside and how much it’ll cost you to own and run. We’d also point you towards our New Car Buying pages, where you'll find massive savings on a huge range of new cars.
