Hyundai has worked hard in recent years to improve the interiors of its cars. As a result, you’ll find a smartly designed dashboard, impressive materials and excellent build quality inside the latest i10.

Hyundai i10 dashboard

The i10’s recent update means you can choose bright blue or red metallic-look finishes for the dashboard and gearlever surround. While these choices won’t be to all tastes, there’s no denying they add spark and character to the cabin.

The Hyundai is a small car, but it’s surprisingly good at travelling long distances. Aside from the largest potholes, the car’s suspension does a good job of soaking up bumps in the road, while the interior is also very well insulated from engine and wind noise. Naturally for a city car, the i10 doesn’t feel at its best on motorways, and the lack of a sixth gear means the engine can get quite loud. It still manages well enough, however, even if it’s not quite as refined as a SEAT Mii.

Equipment

A USB connection, trip computer and electric front windows feature on all i10 models, while SE adds air-con, Bluetooth, DAB radio, cruise control, electric rear windows and power-adjustable heated door mirrors.

Premium cars include a leather steering wheel and gearlever, 14-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights and a smartphone docking station. The i10’s late-2016 facelift saw the introduction of a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system to the Premium SE model, which comes with sat nav, DAB radio and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technology.

Hyundai tends not to offer many optional extras, and that's the case here. You can, however, splash out on metallic or pearlescent paintwork for £550, an electric sunroof for £295, and switching to blue cloth seat trim is free.
