Hyundai i10 awarded What Car? Best city car 2014 and 2015

Last year the Hyundai i10 stunned us by stealing the crown from the VW Up. It’s just as nimble to drive and comfortable in town as the VW, but offers even greater practicality, class-leading refinement and loads of kit.

Our choice – the 1.2-litre petrol – is wonderfully smooth, and quick enough to keep up with larger traffic. In Premium trim it feels suitably expensive inside, yet still costs less than £11,000, which makes it stunning value. The Hyundai is a genuine threat to a lot of superminis.

Space and practicality used to be an afterthought in this class, but the Hyundai i10 has both in spades – and these helped make it our favourite city car last year.

It gets the nod in our middle price point again. the i10’s four-cylinder 1.2-litre petrol engine is incredibly refined around town, it rides and steers nicely, and it’s remarkably easy to drive and park.

The cabin is superb too, with high-quality materials, no bare metal, easy access front and back, and space for four adults to sit in total comfort.

Premium trim is a bit pricier than the SE that got the gong last year, but comes loaded with big-car features such as cruise control, a leather steering wheel, led running lights and 14-inch alloy wheels.

Add to that impressive list the standard five-year warranty and roadside assistance, plus reasonable fuel economy, and the i10 really is the complete city car package.
