A very nice looking small car and one of the very few Hyundai designs I actually like.

A very decent looking small car, and finally some color and fun in the Hyundai i10 car. Easily the best in its segment right now, an as everyone seems to have given up on this segment anyway, that is likely to be the case for quite a while....

It's fine for the price, but could have been a lot better. The detailing up front looks cheap. I particularly hate how the fog light cluster doesn't fit right inside the grille (instead they have an black plastic extension crevasse in the corner). The sketches showed this looking correctly resolved.

Of course the sketches were over the top, but I wish it stayed closer. Maybe an N line version will fix it up.

The creases on the hood are also really dated looking.

It's funny how hard the interior is trying to mimic a full dash screen a la Mercedes, but it's really not working. The speedo surround is just too distinct and heavy. Black plastic can't solve all unfortunately...

Agreed...I get that this is the direction most new Hyundais seem to be going in (Palisade, Sonata...kind of), but it doesn't work here. I would've preferred they went with the separate (albeit ubiquitous) tablet approach found in the Kona, facelifted Tucson, etc.

To be fair, Mercedes full dash does not work on base spec E-Class models as well (and this is already upgraded with wood):

Just days after launch, there is already a N Line model added, with sportier looks; Although the N-Line can also had with the 82hp 4 cylinder shared with the rest of the lineup, you can opt for a 98hp exclusive 3 cyl. turbo, which won't make it an up! GTI let alone Abarth 500, but at least give sufficient go I guess...
