Hyundai i10

It's cheap and cheerful, but the Hyundai i10 is also a landmark car for Hyundai. It proves the Korean firm is capable of building a great city car, as it's practical, and offers big car comfort and high-speed stability. There are two small petrol engines on offer, which both offer low running costs. The Hyundai i10's small proportions mean that the Hyundai is at home in the city, but it can also cope with longer journeys. It's easy to drive, and the simple dash is logically laid out.

The Hyundai i10 is a sleek city car that is both economical and suprisingly practical for such a small vehicle. Even better, it's fun to drive – unlike many of its rivals – and comes with Hyundai's five-year warranty. There is a choice of two petrol engines, both of which are cheap to run and insure, and five trim levels, including the SE Blue Drive model which caters to buyers looking for a particularly economical model.
