The segment is fiercely contested at the moment, with the likes of the Renault Twingo, the Volkswagen Up and the Peugeot 108 all fighting for market share. The Korean brand hopes the addition of Premium SE will maintain the i10’s strong sales – 25,000 units were shifted in its first year on the UK market.
Costing from £11,995 (£12,650 for the automatic), the Premium SE model gains additional equipment and sits at the top of the baby Hyundai’s range. From the outside, only the new 15-inch alloy wheel design sets it apart, but most of the toys have been added inside.
Climate control, an electric sunroof, rear parking sensors, a push button start and heated front seats and steering wheel are all fitted as standard. It is fitted with the 86hp 1.2-litre petrol engine, which costs £30 per year to tax when fitted with the manual gearbox.
Elsewhere in the i10 range, the SE model gains a new connectivity pack comprising Bluetooth integration with voice recognition and steering wheel-mounted audio controls. The SE model starts at £9,960 for the 1.0-litre manual, and the pack costs £175.
Both additions of the Hyundai i10 are available to order now. Take a look at our full review of the i10 to see how it fares against the competition – the Volkswagen Up, the Peugeot 108 or the Renault Twingo.
