35 Euro Cars That Can Save America: # 6 - Hyundai i10

 

A fair number of these cars are all starting to look the same and can't be told apart without a scorecard and this little Hyundai seems to have fallen smack dab into the middle of the category. It's reasonably priced, performs well and returns much better than average fuel mileage, but it just doesn't strike me as a particularly inspired little car. At first glance it seems little more than a shrunken Chevrolet Aveo.

 

The Hyundai i10 Hatchback 1.1 Classic 5 Door is estimated to carry a North American net sale price of $10,493.88, given the prevailing market pricing of similar automobiles. Its 1086 cc engine powers the car to a top speed of 95 MPH and an acceleration shown by a zero to sixty MPH time of 15.6 seconds. The performance factor of 11.4 is average for its class. The Hyundai i10 Hatchback 1.1 Classic 5 Door returns 64.2 MPG in highway driving, 46.3 MPG in the city, and a combined loop mileage of 56.5. With a fuel tank capacity of 7.7 gallons, the car can travel 494 miles on a full tank of unleaded regular fuel, but when it's filled right up to the top of the fuel filler neck, the total range should be approximately 596 miles. When all these price, performance and mileage factors are taken into consideration, the Hyundai i10 Hatchback 1.1 Classic 5 Door scores a combined Practicality Index of 82, with 100 representing the best, most practical car available and 1 representing a Hummer H3.
