    Hyundai i10: 7 Reasons To Buy This City Car

    The Hyundai i10 is top of its class in the small car division. This is why we wanted to take the time and provide 7 reasons on why you should purchase one. Below, we’ve shown you how good this small city car really is!

    1. Space

    The city car division doesn’t always offer cars with a spacious interior that leaves passengers comfortable for very long journeys. Space is a premium within these small city cars but not the i10, reviews indicate that this model is from the class above where more space is available. Obviously, the i10 hasn’t increased its dimensions to the class above, but what it has done is utilise the available space, turning it into a roomy car to travel in. You can easily fit 4 adults comfortably within the cabin or even 5 at a push. They have achieved this with the clever design by offering wide doors and a tall roof offering an easy entry and exit of the car. Not only will your passengers be comfortable, but there is enough boot space for your luggage or shopping, the i10 boot capacity is 252litres.


    2. Maneuverability

    As soon as you start driving this car you’ll notice that the i10 offers lightweight steering, along with impressive visibility, making it a dream to drive around tight city streets and makes short work of parking in them awkward spaces. You may jump to the conclusion that it doesn’t handle very well on the open road if it offers light steering, but you’d be wrong because when driving on a motorway the car feels composed and assured offering safe and predictable handling.


    3. In-car Noise: Engine & Wind Factor

    If you regularly purchase small cars, you’ll be accustomed to quite a bit of engine and wind noise as you drive along. There have been many reviews about how quiet the i10 is across the range. You won’t find any difference in engine noise if you purchase the 3-cylinder 1.0litre petrol or the larger 1.2litre petrol engine. It’s also been reviewed that it’s very good on external wind noise when driving around town or on a motorway, this is a major selling point for this city car.


    4. Power Unit Choice

    With the i10 you have a choice of only petrol engines, some may think this is a poor offering from Hyundai, but it's done for a reason. City cars are notorious for doing short journeys, this wouldn’t warrant a diesel engine as you’ll find yourself with problems due to not covering the mileage a diesel engine needs to function at its optimal performance. Plus, you won’t save money on fuel if you're only covering short distances.


    5. What’s Inside?

    You're presented with a functional interior with the i10, the dash offers smooth lines that flow across the front of the cabin. Your offered everything you need within arms reach while driving. It's stylish, yet functional controls for the climate control and in-car entertainment make sure you know where and what you're changing at all times. Also depending on trim levels, you can spec the city car with colour coded trim and seats, something to make your car unique.  


    6. Exceptional Ride

    As we have become accustomed to the UK roads offering an all-terrain experience as you dodge pothole after pothole, you need a car (even a city car) to offer you a smooth comfortable ride when tackling the UK’s roads. This is where the i10 shines, its comfortable ride absorbs even some of the worst bumps in the road but still offers stiff enough suspension not to have body role when handling corners.


    7. Reliability

    You don’t get anything more reliable than a Hyundai even if it does have any issues as the manufacturer offers an amazing warranty. Hyundai offer a 5-year warranty package with unlimited mileage with their cars, which is enough reason to purchase the i10 … for worry free driving!


    As you can see,  we have given you 7 convincing reasons why you should purchase a Hyundai i10.
