    Whatever package the 110 has looks good, but I could do without the big chunky plastic bit on the front of the 90.

    So good to see something with simple white steelies on it. Looks purposeful.

    Bull bars are (mostly) illegal in the UK, those plastic ones are the legal alternative to them. I think the general idea is that they aren't lethal to anyone you hit in a crash.
    With that said, I have no idea whether they do still manage to serve their primary purpose well or not.

    They usually conceal a full metal bullbar beneath, so they're functional, plastic is just a cover

    I had a quick 2 min drive of a Hyundai I20 today, the 1L 3cyl 100ps model. Its been about 1.5 years since I last drove a car, so it was nice to be back. I was surprised by how much get up and go it had. Obviously, its not a quick car, its something like 10.8 seconds to 60mph, but in 2nd gear when I put my foot down it was very happy to oblige. With it being a 3cyl, it was a little less smooth and a little more aggressive sounding than most 4cyl's that I have been in.

    If I had to chose between the two cars I have driven (Honda Jazz and I20), it would probably be that I20. The suspension was better damped, and it felt a bit more eager. Not to mention that it was quite a bit easier to drive, has better equipment, and better interior quality.
