The i10 was tested alongside its competitors by the French automotive magazine Auto Plus (issue 1494,April 21st, 2017), by the UK magazine What Car? (online, March 17th, 2017), and by Germany’s best-selling motoring magazine Auto Bild (issue 5/2017). According to the testers, the i10 impresses with its superior roominess especially when it comes to head and leg space on the rear seat and with an exceptional driving performance, particularly in urban areas. As “the most rounded city car ever seen” (What Car?), the i10 also impressed the testers with its user-friendly infotainment system and connectivity features. What Car? comments: “Its more settled ride, roomier interior, slower depreciation and more generous list of standard equipment make it a more compelling choice. Throw the brilliant new infotainment system into the mix and we don’t see the i10 relinquishing its crown any time soon.”

The New Hyundai i10

The renowned German motoring magazine Auto Zeitung carried out two comparison tests of the i20 (issue 7/2017 and 11/2017). Beating its French, German and Japanese competitors, the Hyundai i20 came out on top in both test situations. Similar to the test of the i10, the i20 scored high marks for offering a spacious interior with sufficient room for luggage in its 326-litre boot. The car is also praised for its comfortable seats, making long journeys pleasant by allowing a relaxed seating position thanks to multiple adjustment options for the seats and the steering wheel. The testers also highlighted the car's outstanding braking system, which can bring it to a halt in 35.6 metres at 100 km/h, and its impressive quality, functionality and craftsmanship. As an “outstanding all-round product” (Auto Zeitung), the i20 earned its pole position in both comparison tests.

The Hyundai i20

In wide-ranging comparison tests undertaken by the German automotive magazines Auto Zeitung (issue 5/2017), Auto Bild (issue 6/2017), Auto Strassenverkehr (issue 11/2017), Spanish Auto Bild (issue 531) as well as Autopista (issue April 11, 2017) the Hyundai i30 ranked first ahead of its competitors from Germany, France or Spain, The car wowed testers with its agile driving performance, diverse assistance systems, generous active safety package and state-of-the-art connectivity features. The i30 also earned points for its modern, high-quality interior design and its ergonomic cockpit, as well as its excellent value-for-money attributes. Auto Bild concluded that the i30 is “an all-around honest, neat and practical car.”

The i-family is an important foundation for Hyundai Motor on its way to becoming the number one Asian automotive brand in Europe by 2021. The family will grow further this year with two new exciting additions to the i30 model range.
