Perfect small car
HYUNDAI AMICA 1.1 GSI 5dr (Review date: 23rd October '12)
We bought this care brand new when our son was born and the plan was to upgrade in a couple of years to a larger family car. 5 years later and it's only now we need room for bikes that it's time to go.
It's a tiny car so great for parking but the back seats fully recline so you can fit an incredible amount in the back. This car has been on countless runs to Ikea and has managed to fit in 10ft planks of wood during the house renovation.
It's good on petrol and is very nippy at the lights. We use it every day around town and have done the odd mammoth journey across the country . It has just come out of it's 5 year warranty. MOT last month - only issue was a new brake light and replacement tyre. We have never had problems with the car except once letting the battery go flat as light left on. It has a new battery!
Cons - the stereo is not great but then its the original factory model.
Great Little Car
HYUNDAI AMICA 1.0 GSi 5dr (Review date: 19th January '12)
OK, so you won't want to be ploughing up and down the motorway in this car - it is noisy at high speeds and not all that comfortable to drive. But as a rural or city runabout - dropping off children, etc it is great. Good space for 3 in the back, foldable split seats as well mean that you can carry a bit more than you think. Fuel consumption - around 45 to the gallon, warms up quickly in the cooler weather and has AC. Radio is a bit naff - but hey it's not a concert hall on wheels!
Overall a great little car, reliable, cheap to run - what more could I need.
THE MAKE ME SMILE CAR
HYUNDAI AMICA 1.1 CDX 5dr (Review date: 16th September '11)
first of all l have read all these moaners - " it's too small, it's too hard, it's tax is too high" and on and on
this is a gem of a car
think about how much you have paid for your amica and how much more you would have to pay for another car that could do all that an amica can do
you wolud need to spend another £10K
this will be one of the best buys you have ever made
drive it and enjoy it
Great car for a small Island !!
HYUNDAI AMICA 1.1 GSI 5dr (Review date: 2nd July '11)
As a car to drive on a small Island (Guernsey) of some 25 square miles this is perfect !! It comfortably reaches the max speed limit of 35 mph.
It also slots into the 'small car' parking spaces with no problems.
It's OK in mainland UK too ... provided I remember that the engine is only 1100 cc and not the 1600 cc cars I usually drive in England.
Love this little car
HYUNDAI AMICA 1.1 CDX 5dr Auto (Review date: 6th June '11)
This is an economic little car which is very spacious on the inside. It is just great to drive and I love the seating position (my last car gave me back ache). I have found it very reliable and for a small, light weight car the build quality is high. I think it looks adorable on the outside and love all the extra features like the under-seat storage and the low front fog lights. It is cheap to tax, cheap to run and keep; I was looking for something economic on fuel when I bought this car and I'm glad that I found it. I rate this car very highly!
a great little car
HYUNDAI AMICA 1.1 CDX 5dr (Review date: 21st May '11)
cheap to run, in terms of fuel consumption, low tax bracket and reliability, I've had no mechanical problems with mine! Easy to park and a comfortable ride, even for talled drivers and passengers due to the sitting position being more upright. With elec windows front and rear, aircon a CD player and airbag, it has pretty much everything you'd expect in a modern car of this size
Good little car

HYUNDAI AMICA 1.0 Si 5dr (Review date: 1st March '11)
The Hyundai Amica is a nippy car, which is suitable for journeys around the town and city . The smallest parking space that you may find you will be suprised to find that you can fit into it comfortably. The 5 door car has enough room for 4 persons to sit comfortably though it can take up to 5 persons. The boot space is shockingly Ok. It can hold lots of shopping plus the buggy.. The shape of the model remains modern. The Hyundai Amica has been considered a mobility car by many people due to the ample benefits that it possesses, for example the seats are set in a high position. Many people with a disability , for example persons with athritus in the knees have expressed the comfortable seating and the "kindness to the knees", as the seats are set in a high position. This car is ideal for a single person or a small family. It is not suitable for large families or drivers who like to cruise or drive very fast. But the number of miles you can do on such little petrol is a great saver on the purse strings. It is definately a budget car to inveest in as a first car. I would not say that the car is entirely economical y or environmentally friendly, as the only thing that lets down the Hyundai Amica is the high tax cost. But I suppose the Hyundai Amica makes up for this is other ways, for example it is a small and smart car.
Ideal little city car!
HYUNDAI AMICA 1.0 Si 5dr (Review date: 27th February '11)
I bought this car as a second family car when I went back to work after having my son. I had been used to driving large company cars so I was dubious about the size of this one!
I only needed a small car but wanted 5 doors for ease of getting my son in and out the back. This car has been great for that as it is quite high and therefore does not put a strain on my back when lifting him in and out. It has been very reliable and was great in the bad snow and ice this year.
I would say the down sides are that it costs a lot to tax due to it's age and the boot is small - can get a buggy in and not much else!
However, if you are looking for a small 5 door run around to use as a second car then I don't think you will go far wrong.
