New Hyundai i10 unveiled
Hyundai released the first pictures of new i10, the company’s completely-new small hatchback. Appearing five years after its predecessor went on sale, the new i10 demonstrates significant progress for Hyundai in the segment, possessing abilities and features typically only found in higher segments. Generous levels of equipment, space and functionality, coupled with sophisticated design, refined ride qualities and a quiet cabin, set new levels of ‘true value’ for Hyundai.
Buyers of the new i10 will be offered the highest levels of comfort and safety equipment, with many features more common to segments above. Available equipment such as automatic climate control, heated leather steering wheel and cruise control with speed limiter provide bigger-car comfort, while safety features include standard-fitment stability control and front curtain airbags.
Longer (+80mm), wider (+65mm) and lower (-50mm) than its predecessor, the new i10 provides best-in-class legroom and cargo capacity. 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.
The new i10 is based on an all-new platform featuring a 5mm-longer wheelbase and relocated rear dampers that deliver more precise wheel control over all types of road surface. To take full advantage of its enhanced dimensions, the new i10 has also been carefully tuned to deliver refined driving dynamics and low noise levels, for an experience close to the standard of larger hatchbacks.
As with 95% of Hyundai cars sold in Europe, the new i10 has been designed and developed at the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany.
In production from September 2013 at Hyundai’s factory in Ízmit, Turkey. The annual capacity of the plant, which already produces the i20 model, is rising to 200,000 cars, following a multi-million Euro investment in infrastructure in the region. Once the new i10 goes on sale across Europe, 90% of Hyundai cars sold in Europe will be built in the region.
