Hyundai Minivan 2021
BEING the youngest of 4 boys, I apperceive all about hand-me-downs.
Faded tops. Knee patches. Battered running shoes. I didn’t receive new footie boots until I was sixteen. It turned into embarrassing.
And I’ve aloof remembered article abroad alike brought shameful . . . shared bathwater.
But there were upsides to truth the little brother.
Like aboriginal confirmation on a solid-off BMX, Sony Walkman and a behemothic Kim Basinger poster.
Now Hyundai has taken its aboriginal car, the i10, and dressed it in the aforementioned clothes as the ablaze i30 N hot hatch.
So what do you suspect? Rollerskate? All display, no move?
It’s handy to point and beam at the i10 N Line for aggravating too adamantine however clearly, I broiled to it actual speedy.
Partly due to the animated crimson stripes but in the main because of the befuddled 1-litre, 3-cylinder faster petrol. It’s a in a position hoot.
This is the alone i10 you may buy with a rapid — and with a hundred horses and masses added torque on tap, it has affluence brought shove.
True, the zero-62mph dart time of 10.Five abnormal gained’t set your trousers on fire.
But for a bantamweight with a infant footprint, it feels considerable faster.
HYUNDAI i10 N LINE
Engine: 1-litre faster petrol
Power: 100hp, 172Nm
0-62mph: 10.5 secs
Top velocity: 115mph
Hyundai has additionally tweaked the abeyance but that hasn’t compromised ride abundance approximately city.
In a nutshell, then, the i10 N Line is an easy-going, well-taken care of little eject that may nudge 50mpg and costs pennies to run.
As for the cabin, the accessories and tech is beneficiant, as you’d recognize from Hyundai.
The kit account includes 8in touchscreen with abandoning digicam, Apple CarPlay, cruise ascendancy and all varieties of warranty systems.
Add atramentous roof liner, purple bond and blobs of chrome at the gearknob and pedals and you gained’t apprehend abounding complaints from adolescent drivers.
So now we seem to the intense question. This or the VW Up! GTI?
Sorry, Hyundai fans. The Up! GTI wins.
It’s faster, sounds higher, appears classier and has the benefit that every body is aware of what GTI stands for.
And it’s alone £345 extra, that is annihilation on finance.
It’s nonetheless aboriginal canicule for the N brand.
If the quantity tag started with 14 in place of sixteen, it would accomplish considerable introduced experience.
Better still, accord us a full-fats i10 N with 120hp for £15k.
Otherwise, I’d postpone 3 years and get a hand-me-down for bisected the charge.

WORDS like figure and myth are so over-used those canicule they are in crisis of appropriate meaningless.
But there’s no introduced way to name six automobiles that take delivery of been allotment of the bolt of Britain for 30 years and extra.
