Hyundai i10 Expert Review

0 Shares

Introduction

The Hyundai i10 is the global successor to what we knew in India as the Santro Xing. A city-friendly hatch, the i10 had a clean run in the market, often topping the sales charts for Hyundai. With the arrival of the new Grand i10, the hatchback might have been relegated to the sidelines. But, does it still warrant a dekko? Let’s find out

Pros
  • Easy-to-drive. Light steering-light clutch combo is just what you need in the city.
  • 1.1-litre petrol engine is refined, silent and adequately powerful.
  • Powerful air-conditioner cools down the cabin quickly
Cons
  • Available with a single engine option. 1.2-litre petrol and diesel variants discontinued.
  • Bouncy ride at highway speeds can get unsettling, especially for rear seat occupants.
  • No safety tech on offer. Variants with airbags and ABS have been axed.

Stand Out Features

  • LPG variant on offer for the efficiency conscious.

CarDekho Verdict

The little i10 has been around for a decade now, and we think it is time for it to retire.

"With the prices overlapping the Grand i10, we recommend opting for the newer car instead."

At the current price point, there are better, well-equipped alternatives such as the Maruti Suzuki WagonR / Celerio. That, however, doesn’t take away from the fact that the i10 is a well-built peppy hatchback that feels just right within the city. But, with the prices overlapping the Grand i10, we recommend opting for the newer car instead.
