hey Deep Blue.

Nice car and very good pics. Really like this color on i10.

Regarding your post above, does the i10 AT not come with a S mode? I thought all Auto cars had an S mode where the tranny holds the gear till u redline. I might be wrong though.

Also does the instrumentation show you the currently engaged gear? I once drove the Hyundai Sonata Transform AT in US and it had that feature. I feel its quite nifty thing to have.

Figo had to go for some dent repair, so had to take the i10. But yes I would prefer the Figo anyday.

i 10 has the regular P,R,N, D,2 and an L mode. Additionally there is a button to switch off the overdrive.
I am new to ATs, so I am not sure whether 2 and L modes correspond to the S mode you mentioned.
The instrumentation shows the mode the car is in as in P R N D 2 L

One and half years and 10000kms down the line I can only say " what a sweet little car!".
It has not given me any problems, not even a squeak. The only time I have to squirm a bit is when I fill the car up. But since the FE was known, I have sort of accepted it.
It is the perfect city hatchback.. Well, almost!

Thanks for the update. i am in the market for an Automatic Hatch and have a used i10 in mind. I drove it around a little and had some impressions which I would like to validate with you
(1) felt a little bit of a constant vibration from the accelerator pedal. I was soft on the pedal keeping in mind that it was not yet my car and i was driving an automatic after a long time.
(2) The brakes seemed very soft, i.e. it took a while before the effect of the brake was really felt on slowing the car.
I drove a few other AT sedans as well, verna old diesel and new petrol, laura, vento and corrolla. All of these I felt the Hyundai's had very soft brakes, while the others were much more responsive.
Do you feel the same in your car?

I) I haven't noticed the constant vibration in the accelerator pedal, so I am assuming it is not there. I will check again and confirm.
2) Yes, the brakes are a little slow atleast compared to my old Alto and Figo. I used to think Figo's brakes lacked "bite" but the i10 is worse. That said, for the speeds I achieve in town, it seems sufficient. Higher speeds on the highway would be a different story I guess.
