Road Test

Hyundai has updated its i10 city car range with design changes resembling the sleek ix35 and ix20 models. The distinctive small city car has its wheels in the far corners to try and make the most of the space. The revised range consists of four trims - Blue, Classic, Active and Style with air conditioning and an iPod plug-in as standard, four airbags, a six-speaker stereo, electric windows and central locking all as standard on all models. Engines are the Euro V compliant 1.0-litre 'Kappa' engine, which replaces the old 1.1-litre 'Epsilon', achieving 67.3mpg combined. The popular 1.25-litre 'Kappa' engine has also been improved giving 13% more power (85bhp), 9.2% less CO2 (108g/km) and 8.7% better fuel consumption (61.4mpg) than the outgoing 1.25-litre 'Kappa' engine. To make the most of the efficient new 1.0-litre engine, Hyundai has introduced an all-new model - the i10 Blue. This special 'eco' edition of the i10 emits 99g/km CO2, so it gains exemption from VED and the London Congestion Charge. This small city car is perfect for nipping around town; it's efficient, fun and good value for money.
