Mention the Hyundai i10 to a car industry type and they'll probably tell you that this was the car that benefited most opportunely from the Government scrappage scheme. Right place, right time and all that. Thing is, the scrappage scheme only lasted a year to September 2010, yet come 2013, the Hyundai i10 still topped the sales charts for city cars, bettering the Volkswagen Up, the Suzuki Alto, the Vauxhall Agila and the Smart Fortwo. So there's clearly more to this car than just mere serendipity.
Key to understanding why the i10 has done so well is to look at the 2011 facelift of this model. This upgraded a number of aspects and put the car in a position to retain its number one spot. Used examples of this version aren't too hard to find and they make a great buy if you need cheap, nearly new wheels. Here's what to look for.
