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

If you would like a badge with more kudos than Hyundai's, it's be hard to ignore the Volkswagen Up, or its sister models, the Seat Mii and Skoda Citigo. All have smarter interiors than the Hyundai and better to drive, but the i10 is less expensive and should be cheaper to run, too.

The Toyota Aygo, meanwhile, is similarly frugal but offers less luggage space while head room is compromised in the rear, and the Kia Picanto, while not great to drive, offers a similar experience to the i10 with a longer, seven-year warranty.
