Hyundai i10 deals
You can now get £1,350 off the price of a Hyundai i10 Classic city car
The new Hyundai i10 may have just been crowned Carbuyer Car of the Year, but that hasn’t stopped the company cutting the price of its previous generation Hyundai i10 Classic. It is still on sale and is now being offered with a £1,350 discount meaning it costs from just £6,995.
That price cut puts it within spitting distance of the UK’s current cheapest car – the Dacia Sandero – which starts at just £5,995. However, while the Sandero does without even a radio, the Hyundai i10 Classic comes loaded with equipment including air-conditioning, electric front windows, central locking, a CD player, and USB connectivity. And that’s before you factor in Hyundai’s excellent five-year unlimited-mileage warranty, which comes complete with roadside assistance and regular health checks. Both the Sandero and the i10 get a four-star Euro NCAP safety rating.
The Hyundai i10 excels in town, because its small size makes it ideal for negotiating its way through heavy traffic, and sneaking into small parking spaces. Its suspension also does a great job of soaking up lumps and bumps on urban streets. Out on the motorway, the Hyundai’s little engine can be slow to overtake and noisy, while the suspension doesn’t cope quite so well with bumps.
Economy of 51.4mpg may not be great by latest-model standards, but it is still quite frugal, and the Hyundai costs just £20 per year to tax.
While space inside is limited by the i10’s small size, its five doors make it a lot more practical than three-door rivals, and only the new i10, Volkswagen up!, Seat Mii and Skoda Citigo can better its 225-litre boot.
