The i10 is economical, handles itself as well in town as it does the open road, and is great to drive overall.
If you’re looking for a smart, reliable, car with incredible value this could be your next motor. Best of all you can grab a new Hyundai i10 with a low deposit and free insurance, discounted insurance or cashback.
The i10 is a small and light car that handles well. It’s primarily a city car, ideal for urban driving but this car can hold its own on the motorway and out on the open road too. Its compact dimensions make it easy to park, especially in tight spaces.
The i10 was rated 4 stars by Euro NCAP for safety which doesn’t sound as dazzling as some of the five star rivals, but rather than any major failings, the i10 was marked down because you don’t get all electronic safety aids as standard.
The interior is of premium quality and looks stylish plus you get a decent amount of kit as standard.
The i10 is inexpensive to buy with low running costs and good fuel economy. Insurance-wise the Hyundai i10 is a smart choice too. The 1l version is in insurance group one and the 1.2l is only in group five.
Hyundai are renowned for building reliable cars and the i10 came 2nd in “City cars” for reliability, in the 2014 JD Power survey. As with all Hyundai models the i10 has a substantial 5-year, unlimited mileage warranty (including five years breakdown recovery).
Despite the fact that this car looks tiny, it’s a bit like Dr Who’s TARDIS, with bags of space throughout. The three rear seat belts show that unlike some rivals, this car is a true five seater. It’s comfortable no matter where you are sitting and there’s a decent amount of headroom and legroom.
Assuming you don’t opt for a spare wheel to be included, the boot is one of the biggest in the city car market at 252 litres which means you’ll have absolutely no problem at festival season getting your gear and a couple of your mates into this little car.
What is a guarantor?
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments. Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.
How does the insurance work?
We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)
How long until I get my new car?
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
What happens after the first year?
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
