1995 Hyundai Pony GSI X2 from UK and Ireland


Good, reliable, economic, genuine little car


As of this moment nothing major, although there was a episode no long ago where the head lights wouldn't turn off.

General Comments:

To be totally honest I must admit to liking this car, its quick off the marks around town and on the motorway it will fly...if you boot it a bit.

I find the steering,if anything, a bit twitchy as in having what seems to be quite a short rack, but it goes to make handling better in my humble opinion.

Cockpit is well set out nice lot of room and all in all comfortable then again I've never been the one for luxury's if it goes its worth driving and the pony certainly goes.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1995 Hyundai Pony X2 GSi 1.5 from UK and Ireland


Good basic car, not too fussy


Nothing serious (so far).

A few niggly bits like the aerial for the radio won't go all the way up, causing poor reception on the radio.

Needed the oil changed.

General Comments:

This has been a great little car so far.

It is reasonably nippy.

Fuel economy is not too bad (after a Rover 800 anything that can pass a petrol station is an improvement).

The dipping of the clutch to start her took a bit of getting used to.

Handling is OK.

I only paid £200 for her on an M plate.

Looks good and drives well. For the money it can't be beaten.

I believe spares are expensive though.

Insurance is group 9, fairly high for a 1500 cc.
