Hyundai i10 Sportz 1.2
Gaadi Road Test Verdict
Hyundai’s largest selling car in India is the i10 and for good reasons. For starters, the i10, with the 1.2-litre Kappa engine is India’s most fuel efficient petrol car. It might have odd ball and subjective looks but the i10 is one of the best places to be in in the Rs 4 to Rs 5 lakh bracket. The car got a slight revamp sometime back with changes done both to the outside as well as insides and the standard list of features. Step inside the i10 and you are greeted with quality of plastics and design that can shame cars from a higher price bracket. You do feel that your money was spent well and the i10 further impresses you with its feature list. For example, unlike some of the other cars in this price bracket, the i10 gets steering wheel controls even on its mid trim levels.
It also boasts of features like heated outside rear view mirrors, optional electric sun roof, height adjustable driver’s seat and reverse parking sensors. The i10 comes with two engine options, a 1.1-litre and a bigger, more powerful and efficient 1.2-litre engine. Both the engines are very good on power with the latter making the i10 the quickest car in the class easily. The gearbox is also a delight to use and this combined with a light steering makes driving the i10 a breeze in traffic.
Hyundai seems to have ticket the right boxes in the case of the i10. The company also offers an automatic gearbox variant with the 1.2-litre engine. In all, the i10 comes in nine different trim levels including two automatic ones and caters to a wide segment of users including the fair sex.
Expert Speak: High levels of quality, fuel efficient engines and an option for an automatic - the i10 is a clear winner in its class!

i10 1.2 Sportz out there
We got the i10 1.2L Sportz variant in blushing red color. Its excellent to say the least. Super quiet, excellent interiors, super AC and very good company fitted music system. Music system has aux input to connect the ipods which is really convinient. For the drive, the car is very smooth and the electric power steering is excellent. We took the car to the Baroda-A'bad expressway and the car was very stable at 140 Kmph. Brakes are pretty good too. Mileage wise we are getting about 13-13.5 city mileage with AC on. I am sure it might be higher without AC on but who knows! Overall a very good car for the 4-5 lac price range. read more

I bought i10 Sportz 1.2 last Saturday. The sales experience was good. I purchased my first car in Hyundai's direct outlet HMP Chennai. One of its feature is it has a built in music system. I want to know if this music system can play DVDs and also is there an option to connect my i-pod to the music system. I am yet to check on the mileage. read more
