Hyundai i10 Review

The Hyundai i10 was first released in 2007 as the company’s own spin to the city car. It followed the release of the widely acclaimed i30—a car many praised as the best Korean car in Europe. Big expectations were thus placed on the Hyundai i10 that came out in the same year.  The i10 was not just a new entry to the city car market, but also an opportunity for the company to balance dependability and value within a vehicle. This would make the i10 distinct from all the other ordinary cars in the market. But the i10 also faced stiff competition from the likes of the Fiat Panda and Volkswagen Up.

Pros

The i10’s basic design is executed well, bearing no awkward styling elements or gimmicks unnecessary to the entire structure. The overall look is simple, and not much else so you could also tend to forget it as soon as you see other cars with more distinguished designs. The first 2007 i10 model features a Hyundai corporate grille; this was revised in the current model as the feature now bares a bolder front end.

In terms of size, the i10 is quite tall and thus allows for enough interior space. Other attractive design additions include the rear’s boot badge that gives access to the space and also acts as a handle to the latch. You won’t have any problems opening the boot in just one smooth action.

The Hyundai i10 is said to be a small vehicle packed with luxury, offering equipment that adds extra class to the cabin’s ambience and design. The build quality is definitely durable and comes with a five-year warranty. Space, as previously mentioned, is more than enough. Four average-sized adults can easily fit inside and feel comfortable even on long journeys. Legroom and headroom is also adequate. Children won’t have a problem riding in the rear.

If you need more space for longer items, the 60/40 split of the rear seats lets you expand the given boot space. The higher spec models also include extra space in the boot’s underfloor storage tray. This handy feature lets you organize any additional clutter that would roll around the rear as you drive.

Cons

The i10 offers a confusing engine range. Most would prefer the 1.2-litre unit for its peppy performance, but the 1.0-litre alternative gives little choice due to its strain and features compromised for low emissions. The 1.2-litre i10  features improved refinement, as the engine remains quiet. But the i10 is still miles away from being a true, rapid city car as you still need to anticipate overtakes and go through several gear changes.

The interior is made of durable quality material, but tends to be boring in terms of aesthetic design. The layout itself is practical and is without flaw, but the look tends to be so drab due to the dark-hued plastics and their hollow-sounding nature. Space is mostly ample but taller occupants won’t have a comfortable time siting through long journeys. Elbow room is lacking when three individuals are seated at the back.

The Hyundai i10: A quick look

Also known as the Dodge i10 in Mexico and the Inokom i10 in Malaysia, the Hyundai i10 was launched in 2007 as a replacement for the Hyundai Atos for certain markets. Positioned above the Eon in the Hyundai lineup, it is classified to be part of the lower end of the South Korean automobile manufacturer’s subcompact hatchback range. When the i10 was still in development, it was code-named as Hyundai PA and was primarily meant for the Indian market since subcompact hatchbacks were popular in the country. Probably the closest vehicle it can be compared to is the Kia Picanto.

Hyundai’s i10 features pulled-back headlamps, a large and gaping air dam, grilles with chrome lining, integrated fog lamps, a clam-shell bonnet, and an upswept kink for the rear window. In terms of size, the i10 is very similar to the Hyundai Atos, although it has slightly bigger interiors. This is because though the vehicle is a subcompact hatchback, the design was intended to accommodate even tall drivers plus knee room in the rear was increased.

The Hyundai i10 was recognized as the 2008 Car of the Year by many automotive TV channels and magazines in India, like BS Motoring, Overdrive magazine, and NDTV Profit Car & Bike India, as well as similar organizations in Malaysia, dubbing it the Best People’s Car for 2009 at the Asian Auto – VCA Auto Industry Awards.
