Which used Hyundai i10 hatchback should I buy?
We certainly wouldn’t blame you if you decided to go for a good used example of a 1.0-litre three-cylinder i10: 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. 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 from 2016 onwards, it’s worth having. Try to find one with the driver assist pack because this adds forward collision alert and lane-departure warning.
