Advantages: price, size, road tax, nifty driving
Disadvantages: none that I have come across!
We traded our old Fiat Punto in for a Hyundai i10. We thought that the outside of the car looks like a little matchbox on wheels but were really surprised at how spacious it is inside.
Having a growing family of 2 boys growing by the minute we needed something that had enough leg room in the back for 2 teenagers. The car salesman was 6'1" so I put the drivers seat into the position that I would be comfortable driving in and he jumped in the backseat. Even at 6'1" he still had legroom and as the car is tall he had plenty of headroom too, which I must admit I was pretty shocked (in a good way) at how much room there was.
Anyway - the sale was made! we've had it just over a week now, £43.00 to fill it with petrol, £20 road tax per year!. It's a great car - we love it. The boot has a secret hidey hole for all the bumpf that usually fills the boot. We went shopping and got 6 'bags for life' in it.
Driving the car is great - its a nippy car, does 80mph no probs even with 4 people in the car, good sound system with CD player, the display can be quite bright if driving at night it reflects on the winsdcreen but it can be dimmed down, perfect. Steering wheel is adjustable as is the drivers seat height.
Good sized glove compartment, secret drawer under passenger seat which is ideal for popping the ipod, sat nav etc in. All doors front and back have hood sized pockets for bits and pieces and the front two seats have pockets in them for the people in the back's stuff.
All in all - a great car at a great price.
Summary: fab city car
