Hyundai i10 hatchback (2014-2019) - Practicality & boot space

Spacious interior, large boot and five doors make the Hyundai i10 a winner

Practicality & boot space Rating

3.5 out of 5

Hyundai i10s in SE trim and above get a height-adjustable driver’s seat, and the entire range has a steering wheel that adjusts for rake but not reach. All i10s are five-door only, which makes the rear seats easier to access compared to three-door rivals.

The car offers good visibility and its compact dimensions make town driving and parking very easy. The boot is an excellent size for this class of car and there’s plenty of cabin storage, too.

Hyundai i10 interior space & storage

Despite the i10’s compact size, there’s a pleasing amount of space inside. Two adults can sit on the rear seats in relative comfort considering this is a city car, as there’s decent legroom and enough headroom for all but the tallest passengers.

The i10 is only available as a five-door, which automatically makes it more practical than three-door rivals. Its rear doors open very wide to give good access to the back seats, which can split and fold to increase boot space. The i10 also features large door bins in the front and back, as well as some useful storage cubbyholes, so it’s easy to find somewhere for all your bits and pieces.

Boot space

The Hyundai i10 has a 252-litre boot – it's one of the largest in the city car class, but not by much. It loses out to the Suzuki Celerio by just two litres, and there's only one litre less in the back of a Volkswagen up! or Skoda Citigo. Folding the rear seats down frees up 1,046 litres of space, but they don’t lie flush with the boot floor, making it a bit tricky to slide longer, heavier items all the way in. A high boot lip doesn’t help in this regard, either. But these are pretty minor quibbles when you consider the boot’s impressive overall size.
