Leh can be done in a hatchback like Hyundai i10 without any issue.

 

Make sure the car is top condition.

 

Few basic essentials are must.

New tyres ( under 30k driven)

New battery (under 3 years)

Towing rope

Jump start cables

Air pump

Extra tube

Hi Vijay,

Firstly, Congratulations on your first step of planning to do such an epic of a road trip. You can easily do this in your Hyundai i10 but make sure that the condition of your car is really good. The essentials which @Ranger suggested are a must. Don't miss out on that.

There are 2 routes to reach Leh which you have to choose between,

1) Via Srinagar (Super scenic and neatly laid roads)

2) Via Manali (Super scenic and Adventurous stretches enroute)

It can be done quite comfortably in an i10. One of my friend had done it in an Alto from Chandigarh .. I would suggest you to go for it because "darr k aagey jeeth hai" :D.

Make sure you carry the whole rescue kit.

I have done Leh in I10 last year. No issues with car but make sure car is serviced n suspension n tyres are excellent. Carry petrol in jerry can if travelling via manali. Carry water n food items like biscuits etc for kid esp. They might face some problem in some passes. Chains not required in summer

Should not be a problem for bike.

Budget varies from person to person. 
Fuel, Food and Accommodations are major.
 

If it is your first long ride, I would suggest you to take your bike via train.
