- The New i10 will come with the choice of two petrol engines, 1.0-litre and 1.25-litre, driving the front wheels through five-speed manual as standard or four-speed automatic gearboxes.
The New i10 is also offered as a 1.0-litre liquid-petroleum gas (LPG) factory-fitted option and a version with BlueDrive technology , based on the 1.0-litre petrol variant that includes a number of features to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Enhanced version with BlueDrive technology
The version of the New i10 with BlueDrive technology now offers reduced CO2 emissions to 93g/km. This was achieved thanks to improved continuously variable valve timing (CVVT) and the addition of a cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). The option’s fifth gear ratio (manual transmission) has also been optimised.
As in its predecessor, the New i10’s four-seat model with BlueDrive technology incorporates Integrated Stop & Go (ISG – also available as an option on 1.0-litre petrol 5MT models), 13-inch wheels that minimise rolling resistance, and automatic air conditioning (where fitted). As a result, it achieves a combined fuel consumption of 4.0 l/100 km.
The powertrains of the New i10 have been tried and tested since their introduction in 2013 for the second-generation i10.
The 1.0-litre, three-cylinder Kappa powerplant has a maximum power output of 66 PS at 5,500 rpm and maximum torque of 95 Nm at 3,500 rpm from its 998 cc capacity (Fuel consumption combined: 5.8 - 4.0 l/100 km; urban: 7.3 – 4.9 l/100 km; extra-urban: 4.8 – 3.5 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 134 - 93 g/km*). The New i10 with this engine and manual transmission can travel from standstill to 100 km/h in 14.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 156 km/h.
The liquid petroleum gas (LPG) option offers maximum power of 67 PS at 6,200 rpm, with 90 Nm torque produced at 3,500 rpm (Fuel consumption combined: 6.5 – 5.1 l/100 km; urban: 8.3 – 6.5 l/100 km; extra-urban: 5.4 – 4.2 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 116 - 104 g/km*).
The four cylinder Kappa 1.25-litre engine, with a 1,248 cc capacity, offers drivers 87 PS at 6,000 rpm. Maximum torque of 120 Nm is available to the driver from 4,000 rpm. When mated to manual transmission, the 1.25-litre can accelerate the New i10 from standstill to 100 km/h in 12.1 seconds and reach a top speed of 176 km/h (Fuel consumption combined: 5.9 – 4.9 l/100 km; urban: 7.4 – 6.5 l/100 km; extra-urban: 5.0 – 4.1 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 139 - 114 g/km*).
Both petrol engines are equipped with either a five-speed manual gearbox as standard or an optional four-speed automatic transmission. A shift indicator displayed on the driver’s binnacle aids the driver in achieving the optimum driving efficiencies.
Reliable ride and handling enhanced
Compared to the second-generation i10, the front bump stoppers of the New i10 have been increased in size from 55.5 mm to 64 mm, to enhance the ride and handling characteristics even on bumpy roads. A modified steering gear ratio (now 53.5 mm/rev from 50.8 mm/rev) and a new magnesium steering wheel structure enhance steering feel.
The New i10 features disc brakes on front and rear wheels as standard with 252 mm (1.0 version with BlueDrive technology: 241 mm) diameter ventilated discs at the front and 234 mm diameter solid discs at the rear. To maximise braking power and stability, an anti-lock braking system (ABS), electronic brake force distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are all fitted as standard.
The strong, rigid bodyshell of the New i10 remained the same as in the second-generation i10.
