Hyundai i 10 a complete Hatchback
I purchased i 10 Magna model in 2010 and switched over to i10 from Tata Indica Petrol, which I used for almost 3 years. I drove i10 for almost 7.5 years before I went for S cross. Since, I was switching over to i10 from Indica, by all means this car gave me a great experience compared to Indica.
Pros : Almost Nil break down maintenance, apart from regular routine services at regular intervals. The average costing was reasonably low between 2.5 k to 3 k. Engine remained intact ( I run for 1.5 Lac KM) and absolutely there was no issue. Though compact, offered good leg space. Smooth driving in the city roads and traffic. Excellent Pick up. Seats were quite comfortable though it is not a luxury car. Battery I replaced only twice in 7.5 years.
Cons : A.C. had a problems for 3 to 4 times and at once I had to replace complete AC due to compressor failure after 7 years. Headlights were not powerful enough for Highway driving. Wipers did not have intermittent mode of operation, hence caused scratches to glass. Suspension quality was poor.
Conclusion : Overall, a complete Hatchback car, very low maintenance, good milage, all the basic features one needs like A.C., heater, power steering, all four power windows and central locking system at affordable price and I would say, i10 model was a good car, which is now replaced with grand i 10 with much features.
