    Having owned many cars in the past 60 years I can certainly say that this Hyundai is the best value for money. Low Road Tax, low insurance and fantastic fuel consumption (65 or more to the gallon), very nippy and one has to watch the speedo otherwise it is doing 85 before you know it but seems like 60 because Read More

Review of Hyundai i10

Overview

The i10 made its world debut in the Indian market first, way back in the year 2007. Infact, Hyundai made India its export hub as well for this best-selling small car. The i10 was well received by the Indian market and soon the car overtook the Santro as the best-selling Hyundai in the Indian market. Time and again, the i10 has been among the top three selling cars in the Indian market and the new updated version, launched in September 2011, further increased its appeal among the users. Exterior wise, the i10 is designed keeping Hyundai�s Fluidic DNA in mind, the updated design isn�t 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. Step inside and 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 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. This engine gives 80 PS and is smooth and easy to drive. The i10 is also a very good highway car with the 1.2 engine feeling comfortable at an indicated 110-115km/h. 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. The i10 at speeds over bad roads can also turn out to be not so comfortable for rear passengers.Prices for the Hyundai i10 start at 3.6 lakhs to 6.1 lakhs ex-showroom, Delhi and is a great hatchback. For a detailed analysis read below.

Interior

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.

Exterior

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 Hyundai�s Fluidic DNA in mind, the updated design isn�t 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.

Exteriors

  • Front Design

    The i10’s looks has crisp detailing like the hexagonal grille and sharp headlamps mean it still looks quite fresh.

  • 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. That’s a shame, because it helps to balance the car’s proportions and adds a little character to the otherwise slightly anonymous shape.

  • 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.

  • Ground Clearance

    Hyundai i10 has about 165 mm of ground clearance.

  • Bumpers

    i10 has body coloured bumpers and integrated fog lamps in the car.

  • Head Lamps

    The headlamps of the i10 has a smart and edgy look to it and provides satisfying amount of illumination in the dark.

  • Tail Lamps

    i10 has beautiful clustered tail lamps which is clearly visible from a long distance.

  • Fog Lamps

    Fog lamp is optional in the i10 and are available in the higher variants.

  • Tyres

    The tyre size of the i10 is 155/80 radial 13. This type of rubber gives good amount of grip in any situation wet or dry.

  • Alloy Wheels

    There is no option of alloy wheels in the i10.

  • Outside Mirrors

    i10 has an electrically adjustable outside mirrors.

  • Colors

  • Sun Roof

  • Spoiler

    There is no spoiler in the i10 but only a extended plastic part from the rear window which clearly shouts that it is the 2nd generation.

  • Side Steps

    There is no side step attached to the car.

  • Spare Wheel

    The spare wheel of the i20 has been placed at the back of the boot of the car.

  • What we like

    The i10 now has a more up-market look and the front end has newer, bolder and bigger headlamps.

  • What we dislike

    The updated design isn�t really a huge step forward as compared to the earlier version.

Mileage Running Cost

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.

    Hyundai i10 returns about 13.5kmpl in the city

  • Highway Fuel Economy

    i10 returns about 19kmpl in the highways.

  • Arai Rated Economy

  • Tank Range

    Hyundai i10 has about 855kms of tank range approx

  • What we like

    The petrol manual version offers excellent economy.

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 doesn�t 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 suspension�s 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.

Comfort and Suspension

  • Comfort

    Hyundai i10 is reasonably spacious, with decent headroom. The i10’s high-set driver’s seat, though good for visibility, lacks thigh support and, like in the rear, the cushions feel a touch too hard.

  • Front Suspension

    The front suspension in the i10 has McPherson Strut with Stabilizer Bar which is able to handle the pot holes pretty well.

  • Rear Suspension

    The rear suspension has CTBA with coil spring.

  • What we like

    The steering is light and the refinement and easy to drive nature is well maintained.

  • What we dislike

    The i10 at speeds over bad roads can also turn out to be not so comfortable for rear passengers.

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 it�s easy to pilot the car through small gaps. All this power also means that driving a fully loaded i10 with the air-con working doesn�t 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.

Engine Performance

  • Acceleration

    The i10 dispatches 100kph in 12.04sec.

  • Top Speed

    when pushed hard i10 clocked 156kph

  • In Gear Acceleration

    The Hyundai i10 can reach 40-60 in just 5.61 seconds and 80-100 in 5.5 seconds.

  • Gearbox

    The 5-speed manual ’box works surprisingly well with the Kappa. It’s pretty responsive and the surplus of power from the Kappa motor ensures that you never struggle to keep up with the traffic.

  • Power

    i10 has transverse petrol 1197cc engine which gives an output of 80ps @5200rpm.

  • Torque

    Hyundai i10 gives 111nm of torque at 4000rpm.

  • NVH Levels

    Although the i10s NVH level is quite low still it begins to vibrate a little when pushed hard.

  • What we like

    The engine is very responsive and it�s easy to pilot the car through small gaps. All this power also means that driving a fully loaded i10 with the air-con working doesn�t strain the engine.

  • What we dislike

    Though it is a good highway car, the stability could have been better.

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.

Brakes and Wheels

  • 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 you’re doing, just as you would expect of such a small, short car, but the car's handling and ride always feels measured and controlled.

  • Braking Performance

    i10 has a front ventilated discs and drums at the break. It manages to provide i10 with a descent braking. The i10’s braking is more than up to the job, with good feel, strong retardation and a commendable resistance to fade.

  • 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.

  • Abs

    Hyundai i10 has an option for ABS(anti lock braking).

  • Traction Control

    Hyundai i10 does not come with a traction control.

  • What we like

    The i10 is easy to drive and also has good handling.

  • What we dislike

    The handling is not class best.
