How much does the Hyundai I10 cost to run?

The 1.0L petrol is the most economical Hyundai I10 to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency.

The Hyundai I10 1.0L petrol is free to tax, as it sits in tax band A.

It does not far off 71 MPG on average, which means it will cost £8.00* in petrol every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the Peugeot 208 1.6L diesel and the more thirsty SEAT Ibiza 1.0L petrol.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 2, which is lower than the Dacia Sandero 1.0L petrol, but higher than the Smart Forfour 1.0L petrol. (If insurance cost is important to you then the Ford KA+ has the lowest insurance group.)

Hyundai I10: How big is the boot?

The Hyundai I10 has a below average boot space (237 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This would allow one pushchair and one large bag. Alternatively you could load up with 2 large bags or 2 cabin bags instead.

Worth knowing, the Skoda Fabia estate is the best in class, allowing for one pushchair and 3 large bags with its 515 litres.

Is the Hyundai I10 easy to park?

Given a typical supermarket space, the I10 is easy to park. (If you want the detail it will fill just 68% of the bay). This is as narrow as cars in the Supermini class get, and gives you the maximum door opening space.

If you park on the street regularly, this is one of the cars to shortlist. At 3636m long it gives you reasonable 1164mm space to move the car in and out of the bay.

Which Hyundai I10 has the best performance?

The fastest Hyundai I10 from 0-60, is the 1.2L petrol (if you’re a petrol head, it has 121 lbs/ft torque and 87 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 12.1 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the Honda Jazz 1.3L petrol, which will beat your Hyundai I10 to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.

What size caravan or trailer, can the Hyundai I10 tow?

If you are towing you want good torque to pull away easily despite the extra weight, and the car needs to be at least 15% heavier than the caravan to keep you stable at speed.

The model that can tow the biggest caravan or heaviest trailer is the Hyundai I10 1.2L petrol which has 121 lbs/ft torque. It should be able to tow a braked caravan or trailer that weighs up to 800kg comfortably.

You must check your car handbook – maximum towing weights vary considerably with different engine and gearbox combinations.
