What used Hyundai i10 hatchback will I get for my budget?
Just under £5000 is the entry point to the i10 in this generation, if you want to avoid all the Cat D and high-mileage ones. This will buy you examples of either 1.0-litre or 1.2-litre cars, mostly in the popular SE trim. Up the wedge to between £6000 and £8000 and you’ll pick up a good, clean 2015 or 2016 car from an independent dealer, or just possibly a 2017 model from a car supermarket at the top end of the budget. Anything above £8000 should net you a good 2017 car, often with only a handful of miles on the clock. All these cars will have either average or below-average mileages for the year and should come with a full service history.
How much does it cost to run a Hyundai i10 hatchback?
In terms of claimed average fuel consumption, the two petrol engines are pretty close. The 1.0-litre is said to return 60.1mpg against the 1.2-litre’s 57.6mpg. The special Blue SE version of the 1.0-litre, with its smaller wheels and seating for four, has an impressive claimed average of 70.6mpg and CO2 emissions of just 93g/km. For cars registered before April 2017, this obviously means zero road tax.
Insurance and servicing costs are among the lowest in the class; Hyundai offers a variety of cheap, fixed-price servicing schemes for both new and used cars, the cost of which can also be consolidated into any finance plans.
