I agree to watever hyundai say, nice interiors, good design, everything. I would like to draw attention to the biggest and most dangerous flaw in the car.Surprised…imagine a car without impact beam at front. What safety features the hyundai is bragging about. My i10 met with an accident at speed of about not more than 25km/h, hit a tree. Imagine….the engine block is broken. Reason basic manufacturing defect. Now next time u see an i10, open the bonnet and u will be surprised to note that there is not even a single piece of metal till engine block, its all fibre and plastic. So if it meets with an accident, the first thing which is going to face the impact is engine which is barely few inches ahead of dashboard. How are seat belts and air bags going to protect at such close hit. I am looking for a genuine buyer once the car comes out of workshop barely in a month of buying it. Next time if someone suggest u to buy, imagine the consequence of hitting at 50km/hr and accidents do happen.

Having driven civic and maxima of US, a small Indian car can only delight you with the ease of driving on Indian roads, with potholes and enormous traffic. I went to almost every small car showroom in Delhi.

I have come across umpteen comparisons of the i10 with the Santro. Everyone seems to think this is an upgraded version of a Santro. However, once you own and drive the i10 all illusions are dispelled.

      “[…] – Safety flaw?!! Is it true that i10 has no proper impact beam in the front? Source : Top Car: Hyundai i10:Rating and reviews SPEAK INDIA Aahh these hyundai […]”

      The engine block collapse is a safety feature, that allows the engine to not smash into the passenger space. The safety of passengers is defined by being able to preserve the cabin space. It is not dependent on the amount of metal in front of you, but by the way the shock of the impact is absorbed. For this reason the safety features of the good old Ambassador is very poor since they only have metal in front of you, and during a hard impact the metal acts as a hammer against the passenger cabin and indeed on the passengers. Modern cars use composites and crumple zones which are designed to absorb the shock and deform so that the passenger cabin stays untouched. I am a Jet Engine Engineer, trust me there is nothing wrong with ur car. It performed well.
