Hyundai i10

£ 9,800 - £ 16,270
Published: 15 Jan 2020


What should I be paying?

Prices start at around £12,500 for the entry-level ‘SE’ i10 - basic ‘S’ trim is dead, but nobody bought it anyway - which is only available with the three-cylinder engine. You get good kit, like a DAB radio, Bluetooth, air conditioning, electric windows and mirrors and cruise control, but you’ll want to move up to at least ‘SE Connect’. 

For an extra £1,000 it adds alloy wheels, an eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a rear-view camera and speakers in the back. Stump up yet another £1,000, from around £14,500, for bigger 16-inch alloys, fancier headlights with LED DRLs, fog lights, heated seats and steering wheel and posher interior trim in the i10 ‘Premium’.

SE Connect and Premium cars get the option of the bigger engine. It’s only £500 more than the little one across the board, so frankly you may as well. Cars fitted with the five-speed auto cost £500 more to buy outright than the equivalent manuals. The i10 you want is the SE Connect, with the big engine and manual gearbox, which costs £13,995. Better residuals mean lease deals ought to be more affordable than ever. All new i10s come with Hyundai’s handy five-year unlimited mileage warranty. 

Running costs will be tiny - the dirtiest i10 emits 105g/km of CO2 and the cleanest 101g/km, so they’re all in the same VED band, and in day-to-day driving they should all manage mid-40s to low-50s mpg without issue. 

As for safety, all i10s get overzealous lane-keeping assist, high-beam assist and a forward collision warning system with autonomous emergency braking. There’s also tyre-pressure monitoring and hill-start assist.
