Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Hyundai i10 hatchback?

The Kia Picanto is a very similar car to the i10; both cars share engines and other mechanical parts. The major benefit with going for the Kia is that it had a longer seven-year warranty from new, compared with the five-year period for the Hyundai.

It may have been on sale for quite a while, but the Volkswagen Up is still a really good value car choice. It drives really well, has a comfortable ride and is pretty spacious inside. It doesn't have a handy touchscreen infotainment system, and examples from 2020 onwards do without automatic emergency braking, though.

Overview

If you're looking for a tiny town car that offers more civilised motoring on a sensible budget, the Hyundai i10 is an ideal candidate because 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.

  • Comfortable and quiet to drive
  • Five seats and decent rear space
  • Loads of safety kit on even entry-level model
  • Not the cheapest small car out there
  • Non-turbocharged engines are a bit lacklustre
  • Insurance can be pricey
