Hyundai reveals new i10
The second-generation model, which makes its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, uses an all-new platform and is 80mm longer, 65mm wider and 50mm lower than its predecessor.
As a result, Hyundai promises best-in-class legroom and luggage space – boot capacity is up by more than 10% to 252 litres with all seats in place.
Engine line-up has not been announced but Hyundai has said that the model will deliver refined driving dynamics and low noise levels more in line with the next segment up.
Comfort and safety kit is also said to offer features more common to segments above and will include automatic climate control, heated leather steering wheel and cruise control with speed limiter as well as standard-fitment stability control and front curtain airbags.
Designed, developed and built in Europe, for European consumers, the model will also offer more dynamic exterior and interior styling using Hyundai’s “fluidic sculpture” design philosophy along with high-quality materials on key surfaces for the inside.
Allan Rushforth, senior vice president and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, commented: ‘New Generation i10 is another significant step forward for Hyundai Motor. Every aspect of the car has been designed and rigorously developed to meet the demands and needs of European consumers. New Generation i10 fully embodies Hyundai’s "true value" proposition, bringing higher levels of features and functionality than many buyers would expect to find in a vehicle of this segment.’
