The new Hyundai i10 will be unveiled at the September Frankfurt Motor Show, before it goes on sale in the UK in January 2014. Prices are expected to start at around £8,750 for the entry model, which is an increase of around £350 over the current model.
The new Hyundai i10 has been designed and developed at the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre in Russelsheim, Germany especially for the European market.
Standard equipment will include stability control and front curtain airbags. Where options will include automatic climate control, heated leather steering wheel and cruise control with a speed limiter function.
The new Hyundai i10 has grown up to gain extra interior space, yet is only 80mm longer and 65mm wider than the current model, it is 50mm lower. Front and rear passengers benefit from combined legroom of 1,890mm, while boot capacity has been boosted by more than 10% to 252 litres with all seats in place.
We are expecting the engine line-up to remain the same, with two petrol engines, a three-cylinder 1.0-litre and a four-cylinder 1.2-litre unit also used in the Kia Picanto, so there should be a sub-100 g/km model.
The new i10 will be protected by Hyundai’s five-year/unlimited mileage, five years of roadside assistance and five years of vehicle health checks.Published 7 August 2013
