New Hyundai i10 1.2 Premium Review

New Hyundai i10 Premium Engine, Performance And Fuel Efficiency

The Hyundai i10 1.2 Premium is tastier than the world's most expensive chocolate cake. In fact, this mouth watering treat is one of the most capable – and best value for money – city cars on the market. Power comes via an 87bhp petrol engine that propels cake lovers to 62mph in 12.3 seconds. Whereas this is not fast it is more than class competitive, so there is enough poke for nipping through traffic in town. However, a little more might come in handy for overtaking on the motorway. Furthermore, the running costs are low as it averages 57.5mpg, returns 68.9mpg on the extra-urban cycle and hits 43.5mpg. These figures are pleasing – considering the car's price tag - and ensure its carbon emissions are only 114g/km. It can, therefore, be taxed for free in year one then for £30 thereafter (at current rates). And there is more. The handling is everything a motorist can reasonably expect from a car of this nature. As such there is very little body roll, it easily maintains its line through corners, the ride is comfortable and the steering nicely weighted. What better car for joy rides to a chocolate cake shop?

New Hyundai i10 Premium Styling, Cargo Capacity And Equipment

The Hyundai i10 1.2 Premium – although it resembles the outgoing model – looks sharper and more purposeful. That is important as styling has a significant impact on sales. The exterior coexists with a modern cabin that has supportive seats and feels reminiscent of a car from a more prestigious class. The i10 has gone upmarket. Furthermore, unlike some city cars this workhorse has five doors to make rear access straightforward. What a joy for passengers. These complement the 252-litre boot that can be increased to 1,046-litres by folding the rear seats flat. Such figures eclipse most rivals so there is plenty of room to store the world's most expensive chocolate cake. This top of the range trim also has a lot of toys for the money. Highlights include the: Bluetooth with voice recognition, tyre pressure monitoring system, air conditioning, front/rear electric windows, steering wheel controls, front fog lights and the electronic stability program that makes corning safer. All for £10,495. Pleasingly – like every new Hyundai – it is also backed by a five year warranty. This suggests the manufacturer has confidence in the product and that it will last. It will certainly outlast that chocolate cake.
