Sometimes it’s the smallest cars that have the biggest impact. Take the Hyundai i10, for example. It might be the most compact car in the firm’s range, but it really majors on usability and low running costs, making it a great fit for all drivers.
And there’s even more good news as there are plenty of i10 models available on HPL Motors today. Let’s check out just what this little city car has to offer.
Key to the i10’s appeal is its size. It’s wonderfully compact, with short overhangs and easy-to-judge corners that will make it an absolute breeze to park up. These small dimensions will no doubt be a big hit with those living in more urban, congested environments too.
However, that compact size doesn’t mean that the i10 feels floaty or vague on the motorway. It’s surprisingly refined, in fact.
Hyundai has made a name for itself when it comes to value for money. It’s why you’ll find that the i10 is jam-packed with equipment and brings the kind of technology and features that you’d expect to find on a much larger and more expensive car.
So versions currently on HPL Motors get equipment such as cruise control and air conditioning, alongside Bluetooth connectivity for streaming calls and media from your phone to the car’s system.
Everyone is looking to cut costs at the moment, which is why cars like the i10 make so much sense. All versions of the i10 come with a super-efficient 1.0-litre petrol engine, which can return just over 60mpg combined.
Plus, with CO2 emissions of just 108g/km, it’ll be relatively inexpensive to tax, too.
Given the compact exterior dimensions of the i10, you may think that its boot would be on the small size. Of course, it’ll never rival a full-sized SUV or estate car for outright spaciousness, but the 252-litre load area is large enough for a few large bags or a good amount of shopping.
Plus, you can lower the rear seats and expand that load area further should you desire.
It’s nice to have plenty of colour options when it comes to smaller cars and that’s certainly the case with the i10. As well as more traditional silver and grey shades, there is also an eye-catching blue to look out for. It helps to give the i10 a lot of presence, in fact.
You can get the i10 with the option of contrast or body-coloured wing mirrors, too, taking this exterior design one step further.
