Hyundai i10 Sound Edition Priced from €12,850

Hyundai has been constantly upping its game in the last 10 years, even when it comes to the lowest part of its lineup of models. That’s why the first i10 and the second-gen i10 are like chalk and cheese, with the latter being a far cry from its plasticky forerunner.

Because the A-segment is so important in Europe, the South Korean brand decided to come up with a new specification that’s also acting as the new range-topping trim level. Known as the Sound Edition, this Italy-only variant is pretty much all things to all men and women looking for a versatile city dweller.

Let’s talk about pricing and powertrains first. The least expensive i10 Sound Edition can be had for €12,850, while the most costly is priced at €14,450. There’s no difference in equipment. What hikes the Sound Edition’s price is the engine you go for, with the offer as follows: 1-liter MPI petrol with 66 ponies, a 1-liter bi-fuel LPGi with 67 horsepower, or the spunky 1.2-liter MPI petrol with 87 horsepower.

The Sound Edition is an extensively kitted Hyundai i10. The most important add-on is the 6.2-inch touchscreen media system, a unit that’s oriented toward the smartphone crowd and their tech-savvy needs. There’s also satellite navigation, lots of buttons on the steering wheel, two USB ports, an AUX input, as well as Bluetooth media streaming.

In addition to the infotainment system, the Hyundai i10 Sound Edition boasts with a few other handy amenities. These come in the form of 14-inch alloy wheels, turn signals integrated in the side mirrors, rear parking sensors, automatic climate control, Hill Start Assist and an emergency breaking feature. Despite the slightly high pricing, this level of kit is probably the best the A-segment has to offer nowadays, so we ain't complaining because the extra equipment justifies the extra money.
