Hyundai i10

(2020 - present)

The Hyundai i10 is a small, city-class hatchback. The current model was launched at the Frankfurt motor show in September 2019 and arrived in the UK in early 2020. It is the third generation of i10.

The new i10 arrives at a time when other manufacturers are withdrawing from the city car market due to the difficulties of hitting EU emissions targets in a low-price vehicle with no electrification. However, Hyundai seems committed to the sector and has produced an all-new model that currently has the highest Expert Rating of any city car we have analysed to date.

We don’t have a huge number of reviews on file for the new Hyundai i10 yet, but we will keep updating this page as more are published. So far, the i10 has received unanimously good reviews from the UK motoring media, with particular praise for its interior quality, equipment levels and driving experience. There have been no significant criticisms other than some reviews suggesting that maybe the Volkswagen Up is still better overall.
