Introduction

What Car? says...

Watches. They come in all shapes and sizes, and to every taste and budget, but here's the thing: you can spend a gazillion quid on a Breitling or a Rolex and it'll tell exactly the same time as a Swatch, which you can pick up for the cost of a round of fish ’n chips. So what's the point?

And city cars, such as the Hyundai i10, are the Swatches of the car world. Yes, a limousine will literally massage your backside while you're driving along, but when it comes to the act of getting you from the suburbs to the centre a city car is just as good. In fact, better, because you won't be on tenterhooks squeezing it through the narrow streets and, when you reach your destination, parking it will be far less stressful.

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, like the Dacia Sandero, it's still relatively practical.

It sounds like the i10 has all the basics covered, then, but don’t forget the alternatives. We've mentioned the Sandero, which is a bit bigger, so sticking with city cars, you can pick from the Kia Picanto, Toyota Aygo, and Volkswagen Up to name but a few.

Over the next few pages, we’ll report on how the Hyundai 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 service, which can offer tidy savings on an i10 or a huge range of other new cars.
