Our designers and engineers created a stylish, comfortable and economical city car, which uniquely combines the agility of a small car with the features from the segment above. Reinforced by our 5 Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty, the i10 is a car that continues to prove a hit with our fleet and retail customers alike."

Alex Grant, Deputy Editor, Fleet World Group said, "The city car segment is one of the most challenging, but the i10 exceeds expectations. It's chic and fun to drive, yet also well-equipped, practical and offers class-leading refinement. Operators benefit too, with a long warranty, competitive pricing and efficient engines returning up to 65.7mpg. In a tough part of the market, it remains the car to beat."

Judged entirely by the Fleet World Group editors, the Fleet World Honours are highly regarded by the business community. Fleet managers and user choosers look to the Honours listings to discover the cars that offer the value, comfort and refinement expected by business drivers.
