The New i10 has been awarded What Car?’s Best City Car award for the 4th consecutive year.
The New i10 has been awarded What Car?’s Best City Car award for the 4th consecutive year, holding off both a new challenge from the Suzuki Celerio and the established competition from the Skoda Citigo.
We have no hesitation in singling out the i10 as our winner: it’s cheap to buy and to run, comfy, and easy to drive in town. But it also has luxuries that you rarely get in this class, plus a five-year warranty. The i10 feels like a class above the rest, with the most room, the smartest interior and the smoothest engine. The i10 is a proper, grown-up car, not just a mere runaround, and that’s why it’s our favourite city car.

Steve Huntingford What Car? Editor

The New i10 1.2 Premium SE also won “Best buy for more than £10,000”.
We recommend top-spec Premium SE trim, which now gets class-leading infotainment on a 7.0 inch touchscreen, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth and a DAB radio. You also get climate control, heated seats and a heated steering wheel – all on a city car. The rest of the i10 remains as appealing as ever.

Steve Huntingford What Car? Editor

Since its launch in 2014, i10 has continually received praise from both industry and buyers alike and has become one of the stalwarts of our range. For 2017, we have introduced New i10 which not only introduces a fresh new look but also brings technology to the segment that is usually only found in the classes above.
