- Design is currently the number one reason why European customers choose to buy a Hyundai.
Since the introduction of the second-generation i10 in late 2013 its athletic proportions have appealed to customers. The success story took shape at Hyundai’s European Technical Centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany, where the A-segment contender was designed and engineered.
This also holds true for the current i10 with its front and rear design refinements making for an even more appealing look.
Exterior with Cascading grille
This is most obvious when looking at the Cascading grille. The grille is a further development of the Hexagonal grille with a downward tapering shape created by adding a concave element. The Cascading grille has become the family identity for Hyundai models across the range.
In the front, the i10 features round LED daytime running lights on Premium and Premium SE models, positioned at the edges of the new Cascading grille. At the rear, the i10 is also characterised by an evolved bumper design with a black inlay and round fog lights and redesigned rear lights with a darker housing for a sportier look. Redesigned side mouldings of the previous generation i10, round off the i10’s fresh profile.
The i10 has 14-inch steel wheels on S and SE models, 14-inch alloy wheels on Premium models, with Premium SE models feature larger 15-inch alloy wheels. Enhancements over the previous i10 concentrate on improvements to the ride and handling, with larger front bump stops, a modified steering gear ratio and magnesium steering wheel structure.
The sleek design of the i10 enables a drag coefficient (Cd) of just 0.31, one of the best in its class.
The i10 is available in a range of eight vibrant exterior colours available in solid, metallic and pearl finishes. The solid colour range comprises Morning Blue and Polar White, while the metallic range is made up of Aqua Sparkling, Iced Coffee, Sleek Sliver and Star Dust. Customers desiring pearl colours can choose between Passion Red and Phantom Black.
Interior design with more colour options
Moving to the interior, from SE trim and above, the i10 comes with a no cost option of red or blue interior trim alongside the standard black cloth interior.
The interior of the i10 inherits the spacious and stylish appearance of the second-generation i10, created through the coloured dashboard layout and the coloured elements surrounding the gear lever and the lower sections of the front doors. It comes with a stylish shade of red cloth giving customers a choice of three interior colour options, which also include both black and blue versions.
The middle console of the i10 Premium SE is dominated by the new high resolution seven-inch touchscreen navigation system including Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ and LIVE services.
