Low figures relate to the least economical version; high to the most economical. Based on WLTP combined fuel economy for versions of this car made since September 2017 only, and typical current fuel or electricity costs.

Fuel economy

Petrol engines 40.9 - 50.4 mpg

With its lightweight construction and small, efficient petrol engines, Hyundai i10 running costs will be low. Even the thirstiest version, the 1.2-litre automatic, has a claimed average of 45.6mpg.

Waving the fuel-saving flag is the 1.0 SE BlueDrive at 65.7mpg. Low rolling resistance tyres, standard stop/start and a maximum of four seats are the secret of its thrift over other 1.0-litre versions.

Unsurprisingly, those same virtues ensure Hyundai i10 emissions are also low.

The cleanest in the range is the 1.0 SE BlueDrive with stop/start emitting 98g/km.

Buyers of the new car should be able to expect high levels of Hyundai i10 reliability.

Owners of the previous model seem broadly satisfied with their purchases according the Parkers Owners’ Reviews with most issues relating to problems associated with the cheaper fit and finish. That’s unlikely to be a bugbear of the new i10.

Higher levels of build quality and a stronger body shell should help ensure longevity as well as keeping trim squeaks and rattles at bay.

Sealing the deal for many customers will be Hyundai’s confidence-boosting five-year, unlimited mileage warranty. Kia and Vauxhall offer warranties over a longer time duration but with a mileage cap.
