2014 Hyundai i10 1.1 from Spain


Garbage for idiots


Nothing has gone wrong with the car per se, but just looking at it is enough (as an experienced car-owner) to know all the things that will go wrong with this car within a very short while.

General Comments:

A cheap car should by no means be an excuse for manufacturing a rolling death trap. There should be acceptable lower limits for safety and quality of build. The sad thing is the large amount of uninformed people that buy these heaps of garbage.

A good thing about it? Sure, a great stereo system.

I would like to highlight the following things regarding quality of manufacture:

Extremely thin and flimsy doors.

Sad quality in general materials.

Seat backs are misaligned with respect to the seat bottoms, so after driving this go-kart for a week, my back hurts horribly.

The entire front end rattles and vibrates as if it was a Ford T.

No power in the engine, and consumes gas like a car twice its size.

So why did you buy this car? You could see the materials, you shut the doors and open them. Nothing has gone wrong with it yet.

I'm a human being with dignity, therefore I demand from my car that it provide me with seating appropriate for human beings, and not cattle. The backrest is not even properly aligned with the seat bottom.

I saw the comments, tested the car myself, and sold it after just 3 weeks of ownership. Yeah, the doors open and close. So does the door of my fridge, except I would never drive my fridge. So what the doors do or not do is hardly relevant.

Garbage. Cheaper is rarely better in the long run.

Great small car for town


Nothing wrong.

General Comments:

Did not expect much from just about the cheapest car you can get here. But actually was pleasantly surprised by the excellent kit and good comfort.

Only complaints are the under-powered engine for uphills, and vague and slightly odd steering. This is less of an issue in-city, but draws some attention on the highway.

Otherwise a solid build and recommended (so far).

"Inspire" trim with 4 power windows, power mirrors, wheel audio control, 6 airbags, anti-skid, DRL, A/C, reverse sensors and remote locking.

Worry free, low cost motoring


Very reliable.

General Comments:

Not sure whether to call this car the go kart or Tardis.

A small, nippy, extremely capable car with a list of standard equipment for a very competitive price. Air conditioning, electric power steering, four electric windows, four airbags, remote central locking, anti-lock brakes with brake force distribution for under £8K on the road. £20 a year road tax and five years warranty, plus five year breakdown cover.

Seats four adults with adequate room, has five doors, turns on a sixpence, and has a great little engine, which will easily achieve 50 MPG with the manual version.

A superb city car. Highly recommended


Minor rattle from underneath the dashboard, but promptly fixed. Everything else has been flawless so far.

General Comments:

This car is very nippy, and the automatic gearbox is very smooth indeed. The engine can sound a bit raucous when pushed hard, but this is to be expected given its small 1.2 litre size and it's smooth enough for everyday driving.

The electric power steering feels slightly numb, but otherwise the car handles well enough with plenty of grip, and the suspension, whilst firm, is not uncomfortable.

The styling looks great, with its large front grille, front fog lamps and colour-coded mirrors and door handles.

The cabin is spacious and well equipped with front/side airbags, electric mirrors and windows, iPod compatible/MP3 CD radio unit and air conditioning. An auxiliary power socket and front/rear cup holders complete the line-up. The seats are comfortable enough and are height-adjustable. The plastics, while hard, don't feel cheap, and the interior feels very well put together.

The dealership has been extremely helpful. No complaints at all. They treat you like a human being, and their customer service is superb.
