What should I look for in a used Hyundai i10 hatchback?
The i10’s use will be mostly urban, so check for dings in the bodywork caused by minor bumps in tight car parks. It’s also worth looking at the alloy wheels, on the versions that have them, to check they haven’t been scrapped against a kerb too vigorously. Check the smooth operation of the rear hatchback and that the rear seats drop easily.
What are the most common problems with a used Hyundai i10 hatchback?
Reported problems are rare, although there have been issues with the rear brake pads sticking to the discs. In our recent survey, it was noted that the i10 scored above average for brake disc wear but below average for brake pad wear. One or two owners have also reported that clutches can slip, so check that thoroughly on any test drive, especially if buying privately.
Is a used Hyundai i10 hatchback reliable?
According to all the surveys we’ve conducted in recent years, this second-gen i10 is very reliable, with few reported problems. Hyundai as a brand always features near the top of any manufacturer reliability table; in our most recent survey, it finished seventh out of 32 car makers.
