Used Hyundai i10 (Mk2, 2014-2019) review - What should you look out for?

Solid build quality and trouble-free mechanical components mean there’s very little to worry about here

Hyundai has worked hard to build a reputation for quality and durability, and the i10 is one of its best efforts yet. There's very little that goes wrong, with the main thing to look out for being the  specification differences between the different models.

Common used Hyundai i10 Mk2 problems

Air-con

Alongside the entry-level S sits the S Air, which adds air-conditioning to the kit list.

Spare wheel

The i10 S has a repair kit, whereas more costly editions boast a space-saver spare.

Gearchanges

Many i10s suffer from crunchy gearshifts. Adjusting the cable tends to fix things.

Warranty

The i10 comes with a five-year warranty – which also includes RAC breakdown cover for the same period.

Recalls

The second-generation i10 hasn’t been the subject of any recalls; perhaps more impressively, the original 2008 i10 has yet to be recalled, either. In fact, Hyundai as a brand has issued just two recalls affecting other models built since the first Mk2 i10s hit the road in spring 2014.
