2015 Hyundai i10 SE 1.0 from UK and Ireland
Can't beat the warranty and driving pleasure
Trip computer and fuel gauge reset along with cruise control.
Near side rear seat rattles due to ill fitting catch
The latest generation of i10 has been praised in the press as being much more grown up than previous models. For a mid spec car it has a generous level of equipment backed up by the five year warranty. My previous i10 had a few niggles which were all taken care of without fuss by the dealer.
Some people think the 1 litre is underpowered for motorway journeys, but having done several 500 mile round trips across the UK, it suits my style of driving well. It'll happily sit at 70 mph with cruise control on, and even with air con deployed, will give over 50 MPG. Around town it's not so fuel efficient, but if you try hard it'll almost reach 50 MPG.
It's a lot quieter than the previous model. The fit and finish is also more 'upmarket'. That's why you get very little in the way of discount with the dealers, as they know that five year warranty marks it hard to haggle.
All in all, a nice runabout for us savvy motorists.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
