Hyundai i10 Blue: Test Drive Review

Date: 28 June 2011

Category: Supermini
P11D price: £9140
Key rival: Kia Rio

The arrival of Hyundai's updated i10, which launched in March this year, heralded the introduction of a 99g/km CO2 Blue model with a 1.0-litre petrol engine and stop/start technology as well as an improved 1.2-litre powertrain with 108g/km CO2 and 61.4mpg.

The former is the first of a new family of ultra-efficient vehicles for the carmaker that fall under its Blue Drive banner. Reinforcing the brand's reputation as a value proposition, it is the cheapest five-seater in the ever-increasing sub-100g/km sector, with a P11D price of £9140.

RVs of 24.9% aren't strong, but when Benefit-in-kind is £15 a month for a 20% taxpayer there's not much to complain about for a driver who wants a basic runaround. While it is uncomplicated, standard equipment is impressive and includes aircon, USB, aux-in ports, electric windows and central locking.

Naturally, the i10 Blue is a car best suited to the city, doing 0-62mph in 14.8secs, but for a handful of fleets it will make huge economic sense.
