The i10’s bigger, 8.0in screen runs similar software to the Picanto’s. It’s fathomable and pretty responsive. Having physical buttons for volume and switching menus is helpful for operating while driving, too. You get smartphone mirroring, a DAB radio and Bluetooth. An optional Tech Pack (£1000) adds in-built sat-nav and wireless charging. The stereo has only four speakers but still sounds decent.

This has always been one of the best infotainment systems in the class and, apart from a smaller (7.0in) touchscreen than the i10’s, it remains so. You still get physical shortcut buttons, the menus are structured logically and it’s responsive to commands. It’s well equipped, too, coming with smartphone mirroring, a DAB radio and Bluetooth. It also beats the i10 by having in-built sat-nav and the stereo has six speakers.
