The i-series put Hyundai on the map, a dealer in Paarden Eiland told me a couple of years ago. The i30, -20 and of course the i10 formed a formidable series of nice-to-drive, good-to-look-at, well-priced, full-feature passenger cars. Bigger, middle and smaller.

If you already own a Hyundai, chances are that you know exactly what makes these cars special – everything! When you buy a Hyundai, you aren’t just buying a car. You’re buying a lifestyle.
The Hyundai range of cars is extensive and bound to make you feel spoiled for choice. You might like the Tucson or the Santa Fe, which have both earned themselves leading positions in the Hyundai sports utility range. Alternatively, if you’re a young driver looking to enjoy a smooth ride that looks good but comes with a reasonable price tag attached, a good first time purchase is undoubtedly the Grand i10.
Hyundai latest i-series hatchback has arrived in South Africa and is about to take the country by storm! Larger and more spacious than the current i10, the Grand i10 slips very comfortably in between the i10 and the i20 where the old Getz used to sit.
