They're great little cars

I haven't voted, but the i10 1.2 5dr classic is £7k and includes air con. Although there is a new model coming out soon. The i10 is a few seconds faster on 0-60 so might be better suited for motorway traffic

Indeed although some drivers will never go on a motorway...

To be fair it's perfectly happy on the motorway, just don't expect to be overtaking anything at 90. I regularly use to drive from Central Scotland to South Wales to see my girlfriend and the Aygo was always happy sitting at the limit (I'd never, ever break the law you know)

Parking, only my old classic Mini beats the Aygo for nice easy reversing!

104 out of my aygo courtesy car

Have grown to like the MMT semi-automatic gearbox on my wife's Aygo. Would definitely go for another when I get a new car next year.

Im not saying it isn't fine, just the i10 has a bit more nip to it and is cheaper and better specced on the 5dr. well AC, i didn't check anything else When pulling out and moving passed lorries and such, thats when you notice it.

My wife has an i10 and I love it and all small cars, these days newer ones are very comfy and well specced. plus cheap to run

What MPG do you get from an i10?

What MPG do you get from an i10?



An average of 43mpg, but varies from 31–53 mpg

The Aygo averages 53.9, but varies from 45–68 mpg

Driven at a mature pace, and especially on motorway drives, the wife's Aygo will do about 65 mpg. Light weight plus a small engine is perfect for the age of £1.30 per litre petrol.

according to the "official figures" its i10 61.4 combined, aygo 65.6

in reality, you would of course expect better economy form its smaller slower engine. It just depends on which you place as a priority, a but more nippy or slightly better fuel consumption.

Although that drops when air conditioning is on, not a problem in the toyota

but the i10 5 door is cheaper by £300 odd quid so there

Just adding another option for folk looking in this market, drive both if your in the market and see what suits your needs.

Any colours? That photo isn't the nicest colour...

We switched from a 6 year old Citroen C1 to a Hyundai i10 a few months ago.

Yes there is a small drop in fuel economy, but the i10 is a much superior car in terms of refinement and comfort.
6,995 on the road with a 5 year warranty as well.

The C1 was fun, but the i10 is much more solid.

I'm not going to vote either way driving a 1.9L Megane, however these things on a hill are terrible.

It's a very good deal but god help you if you live a hilly part of the UK.

Toyota aygo or yougo

I bought my wife an Aygo Fire 18 months ago, it's a brilliant little car. It costs next to nothing to run and drives really well, £0 tax and it averages about 50mpg with mainly town driving. Had to use it on the motorway yesterday for work purposes and after a 140 mile round trip I got out of it feeling great (and I'm 6"2).

It just goes to prove that opinions differ vastly.

I had an i10 loan car and it was the worst car I had ever driven.
The road handling was poor as it did not handle the slightest bend very well.
The interior felt very inferior and general build quality was not good.
All in my opinion.

I never waste time using "official figures" given that official EC tests do not represent real life motoring, yet the EC figures are the only figures manufacturers are legally allowed to quote. Real mpg, i.e. an average of average, which what I did quote, is far more realistic.

Aside from all that, I know most folk that know anything about cars would always choose a Toyota over Hyundai in terms of reliability, quality and residual value. While Hyundai have upped their game, they don't really come close.

Hyundai do seem to have less recalls than Toyota.

The Hyundai is a far better quality car than the Aygo, just look at the tailgate for instance.

Oh and the Aygo has many reports of water ingress in to the cabin.;

Toyotas in general are more reliable despite the recalls, which are done based on safety on their own accord. In fact, the Aygo is fourth least likely car built 1997-2009 to suffer expensive problems according to Warranty Direct in December 2012.

Most of the water leak issues have been rectified in the 2009 facelift.

Nice find. Excellent quality motor. These are primarily designed as a 'city' car.

a lot of guff seems to be talked about hyundai. the newer models are fine, know 2 others with i20 and i30 and both have had zero problems.

edit: added the other link.

now I dont really car what people do, but lets give clear unbiased views. if someone were to read this and not test drive the i10 as well, then we have done them a disservice.

Compare the spec;

hyundai.co.uk/new…i10

Unlimited mileage 5 year warranty.

5 years breakdown cover.

Air Con and electric front windows as standard.

5 doors as standard.

All for £ 6995 ( or less ).(_;)

£7K on a 1.0L car, madness.

Thanks everyone for the links to what car, Australian surveys etc.

If I was really bored, I would dig out the accolades handed out to Toyota. Just remember they've been at the top of the game in terms of reliability etc for decades, not just the last year or so.

I seem to recall the non too distant past when Hyundai were making disposable cars, I'm glad they're getting better, competition is healthy.

Our only objective here is to provide information for people who are in the market for a small car. As of right now hyndai are up there at the top so it shouldn't be a factor in what you chose. It was purely to counter the claim that they aren't reliable, we don't want to give out misinformation to folk.

you say aygo

Skoda Citigo/Mii/Up for me. VAG product, nice to drive, worth the extra 1k over a Hyundai or this Toyota.

They're great little cars. £29.99 car tax too.

There's almost as much room inside as in our old Fiesta, albeit obviously with a smaller boot space.
