The Top Gear car review:Hyundai i10

Overall verdict
City car that feels more grown up than its size would suggest. Hyundai has hit on a winner here.


Great build quality, fantastic refinement, styling


Not much character, doesn't get stop-start or DAB radio


What is it?

It’s Hyundai’s smallest offering in the UK, a little city car that has got plenty to live up to because we loved the last generation version. The latest one comes on an all-new platform (no, it’s not a common chassis shared with the Kia Picanto), as well as sharper looks and a sweet 1.0-litre engine. The old 1.2 motor is still available as well, but with slightly better economy figures now.
