Editorial Test Drive Review of Hyundai i10 Magna 1.2
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!
Pros: Value for money, featues, engine
Cons: Rear suspension, no diesel

Pros Great looks, good mileage, pindrop silence inside
Cons Missing company fitted ICE
Hello everybody, I have been using i10 Magna 1.2 for the last one year. I bought it after a lot of consultation and browsing several of such forums on the net. Although I had planned to buy a Maruti since I was using Santro earlier but when I got good pricing, value for my old car and state-of-art technology and features in this Car, I decided to go for the same. Moreover, when I bought it last year, the K series engine in Zen Estilo, Ritz, etc. was not launched by Maruti. I must saying its good on fuel efficiency as I could get 18 kmltr on Highways and 14 kmlt in the City (I am living in crowded Delhi though). All it need is an understanding. The pindrop silence inside the Car happened to be the most admirable thing for me in this Car as it allows me to enjoy gossips and chit chat while driving with family. We all love it, its a value for money great Car from Hyundai.
