Editorial Test Drive Review of Hyundai i10
Hyundai i10 Interiors
One of the strongest points about the i10 has been its cabin space and quality. With a wheelbase that is longer than cars like the Chevrolet Beat and Ritz, space on the inside is very generous. The i10 can easily take in tall adults up front with three mid-sized people at the rear. Boot space is a very decent 225litres. What however makes you feel nice is the overall quality of the interiors. The look and feel of plastics is of the higher order and the design of the speedometer console and the fascia much better than most of the other cars in the same price band. All the buttons and the console get blue backlighting which looks terrific. The higher models also get steering mounted controls for the audio system with the latter being integrated perfectly into the central console. The cabin wears a mix of dark and light colors and it all seems to get along nicely. The i10 might not boast of an automatic climate control for the air-con but the rotary knobs feel and work just fine. The forward placed gear lever helps liberate a lot of space between the front two passengers you get two cup-holders and cubby holes each in front and rear of the hand-brake. Getting into a comfortable driving position is easy and the i10 offers you a good view of the surroundings. Space and comfort of the back seat is also above average and even the rear windows wind down all the way! We did miss dedicated cup or bottle holders for the rear passengers though.
Hyundai i10 Interiors Details
Hyundai i10 Boot space
Hyundai i10 has about 235litres of boot space which is not huge in comparison to the other hatchbacks out in the market but still is quite enough to carry some load.
Hyundai i10 Speedometer
i10 has beautiful illuminated speedometer although some complains that the blue light is disturbing to the eye sometimes.
Hyundai i10 Gear lever
i 10 has a gear lever which is well within the reach of the driver but it has a chunky silvery finish on the knob.
Hyundai i10 Cup holders
i10 has no cup holders inside the car.
Hyundai i10 Exteriors
The i10 was never a hot or a sexy looking hatchback like some of its rivals. What it has always carried is smartness - there have no doubt been subjective views about how the car looks from the outside though the newer version has made the overall appearance much better. Designed keeping Hyundais Fluidic DNA in mind, the updated design isnt really a huge step forward as compared to the earlier version. The i10 now has a more up-market look and the front end has newer, bolder and bigger headlamps. The complete redesigning of the grille and bumper not only give it a hint of aggression but also create a more hexagonal frontal form, which can be seen other newer Hyundai products as well. The design upgrades continue on the sides and rear of the car, with new style wheels and redesigned rear lamps and bumper completing the new i10's contemporary and streetwise look. Dimension wise, the i10 is 3585mm long, 1595mm wide (as wide as the Chevrolet Beat) and 1550mm tall. All versions comes with 155/80 R13 wheels and the i10 is sold in a total of eight different color options. All versions come with steel wheels without optional alloys though the rear spoiler with integrated brake lamp on the top end versions does look nice. Ditto for the rear view mirror integrated indicators for some of the higher versions.
Hyundai i10 Exteriors Details
Hyundai i10 Front design
The i10s looks has crisp detailing like the hexagonal grille and sharp headlamps mean it still looks quite fresh.
Hyundai i10 Rear design
The i10 is a fairly tall car, essential for making the most of the interior space. One thing that instantly adds appeal to its design is the rear spoiler, but this is only standard on top-spec models. Thats a shame, because it helps to balance the cars proportions and adds a little character to the otherwise slightly anonymous shape.
Hyundai i10 Side profile
The trailing edge of the rear door seems unusually steeply raked, giving the impression that access could be tricky. Actually, the opposite is true. The fact that the rear door is longer than the front one no doubt helps this.
Hyundai i10 Ground Clearance
Hyundai i10 has about 165 mm of ground clearance.
Hyundai i10 Engine & Performance
The i10 is sold in two engine options. The smaller 1.1-litre iRDE2 (intelligent Responsive Drive Engine) also received a minor update with the refreshed i10 in September 2011. It makes a maximum power of 69PS with an ARAI rated economy of 19.81kmpl. The better seller though is the bigger 1.2-litre engine option. This kappa2 unit now comes with a first-in-class VTVT (Variable Timing Valve Train) technology which basically gives you best of both the worlds performance and economy. Infact, at a rated 20.36kmpl, the i10 is the most efficient in its class. Further, the 1.2-litre engine produces 80PS of power along with 111Nm of torque one of the highest among hatchbacks in India. With a relatively lighter body weight, the i10 1.2 turns out be one hell of a city car. The engine is very responsive and its easy to pilot the car through small gaps. All this power also means that driving a fully loaded i10 with the air-con working doesnt strain the engine. The i10 is also a very good highway car with the 1.2 engine feeling comfortable at an indicated 110-115km/h. The NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) levels are surprisingly very good and can shame quite a few other so called smooth engines around. The engine gets good company in the form of the slick 5-speed manual gearbox. It has the best shift qualities among the segment today. The 1.2 engine also comes with an optional 4-speed automatic transmission.

Hyundai i10 Handling Braking & Safety
The i10 wears independent MacPherson strut up front with a torsion beam axle at the rear. First thing that strikes you when you drive the i10 is the super light steering wheel that is a boon for city traffic. Handling is nippy and pretty good and body control is also decent. Brakes work very well and ABS is standard on the top end Asta version.
Hyundai i10 Handling Braking & Safety Details
Hyundai i10 Handling
The i10 manages to flow over undulating, lumpy B-roads almost with the aplomb of a large family hatchback. You can certainly feel what speed youre doing, just as you would expect of such a small, short car, but the car's handling and ride always feels measured and controlled.
Hyundai i10 Braking performance
i10 has a front ventilated discs and drums at the break. It manages to provide i10 with a descent braking. The i10s braking is more than up to the job, with good feel, strong retardation and a commendable resistance to fade.
Hyundai i10 Safety features
First-in class reverse parking sensors and the reassurance of dual airbags and ABS, you don't have to worry about safety anymore while you enjoy your Next Gen drive.
Hyundai i10 ABS
Hyundai i10 has an option for ABS(anti lock braking).
Hyundai i10 Traction control
Hyundai i10 does not come with a traction control.
Hyundai i10 Comfort & Suspension
The i10 wears independent MacPherson strut up front with a torsion beam axle at the rear. First thing that strikes you when you drive the i10 is the super light steering wheel that is a boon for city traffic. The EPS steering doesnt put any load on the engine (unlike hydraulic ones) and though some experts might crib about the lack of a feel at high speeds, the fact is that the i10 is meant to a family car and does the job very well. Typical broken roads at city speeds are dismissed off easily and only when the pot-holes become craters do you feel the limitations of the suspensions set-ups. The i10 at speeds over bad roads can also turn out to be not so comfortable for rear passengers. At highway speeds, the i10 does feel very stable, thanks for its long wheelbase. Brakes work very well and ABS is standard on the top end Asta version.
Hyundai i10 Comfort & Suspension Details
Hyundai i10 Comfort
Hyundai i10 is reasonably spacious, with decent headroom. The i10s high-set drivers seat, though good for visibility, lacks thigh support and, like in the rear, the cushions feel a touch too hard.
Hyundai i10 Front suspension
The front suspension in the i10 has McPherson Strut with Stabilizer Bar which is able to handle the pot holes pretty well.
Hyundai i10 Rear suspension
The rear suspension has CTBA with coil spring.
