Hyundai i10 Hatchback Review - Hyundai Reviews South Africa
Pretty much the whole attraction of the i10 is how cheap it is, and the good news is that you don't need to buy anything more expensive than the cheapest Classic-trimmed version, which still comes with electric front windows and air-conditioning.
With the 1.1 engine saved for the ES special edition, there's no choice of engine in the main range, but be careful if you're buying an i10 for its low road tax, as specifying it with an automatic gearbox pushes it into a higher tax band.
Like all Hyundais, the i10 has a five-year unlimited-mileage warranty, but for it to remain valid, body inspections must be carried out by an authorised Hyundai Dealer 12, 36 and 60 months after the first registration of the vehicle - and you have to pay for them.
Pro's and Con's
Pro: The i10 is cheap to buy and run, and every model gets air-conditioning as standard. Its small size is a boon on urban roads, too.
Con: The 1.1 engine quickly runs out of puff on the open road and the car tends to wander around on the motorway. The driving position is poor.
