Which used Hyundai i10 hatchback should I buy?
We wouldn’t blame you if you found a good used example of the 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine car and bought it: it’s good to drive, economical and exceptionally refined. But we think there might be occasions when you’d be better off with the 1.2-litre unit. It’s nearly as economical as the smaller engine and shouldn’t cost you much more to run. It’s also a little punchier throughout the rev range, so we think that just tips the balance in its favour – with a full load of people, a full boot and a hill to climb, you'll find it easier in an i10 with the larger engine.
Surprisingly, we’d also go for the top trim, SE Premium. S is too basic, lacking air-con among other things, while it has to be said that SE is excellent value. However, if you can find a good used SE Premium car, it’s worth having – we like that 7.0in touchscreen and the idea of heated front seats has us nodding in approval too.
