Hyundai i10 review - Interior, design and technology

Good levels of standard equipment and decent on-board tech are welcome, but the i10 is too grey and dull inside.

The styling of the i10 has been improved, with Hyundai giving its smallest car a sharper, sportier profile  - thanks in part to a 20mm lowered stance and an increase of 20mm in overall width.

There is the opportunity to personalise your i10, with a choice of ten exterior paint colours. Solid Polar White and Tomato Red paint are standard no-cost options, while other metallic hues will add a further £550. Premium and N Line versions offer black or red two-tone roof options, while all cars feature body-coloured bumpers and mirrors.

Standard equipment is generous with base SE versions including air-conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth, a DAB radio and a leather-trimmed, multi-function steering wheel. Moving up to the SE Connect trim, though, is probably a sensible choice as it adds 15-inch alloy wheels, a rear-view parking camera, an 8.0-inch infotainment touch screen and smartphone connectivity.

The top-of-the-range Premium line brings larger 16-inch wheels, rear privacy glass, upgraded upholstery, a heated steering wheel and heated front seats. Sporty N Line variants include a unique 16-inch alloy wheel design, LED rear lights, branded exterior/interior trim and black cloth seats with red stitching.

Sat-nav, stereo and infotainment

SE Connect versions and above feature an eight-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. This works well, with decent graphics and plenty of screen area to show lots of information.

Satellite navigation and a wireless smartphone charging pad are available as part of the optional Tech Pack, which also includes Bluelink - Hyundai’s on-line system which gives drivers extra controls and features via a smartphone app.
