Refined design highlights and an enhanced ride
The current i10 introduced the Cascading grille, with a downward tapering shape created by adding a concave element, which has now become the family identity across the Hyundai 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.
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 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.
Like its predecessor, the i10 comes with the proven choice of two petrol engines, 1.0 litre and 1.2 litre, driving the front wheels through five-speed manual as standard or an optional four-speed automatic gearbox on 1.2 litre SE, Premium and Premium SE models.
A great package of connectivity, convenience and active safety
The i10 makes advanced technology available to more people than ever before. Responding to customer demand for simple connectivity features, the i10 Premium SE includes the latest connectivity features, all integrated into the new seven-inch touchscreen navigation system. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ guarantee seamless integration, safe operation and mirrored functionality of mobile devices based on iOS or the Android operating system. In order to be up-to-date, the i10 Premium SE’s navigation system comes with a seven-year free subscription to LIVE Services, offering real-time traffic and weather conditions, points of interest as well as the position of speed cameras in countries where this is permitted by law. Customers do not even have to choose: the i10 Premium SE is the only car in its class to offer Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ and LIVE Services in a single infotainment system.
In terms of safety options, an optional Driver Assist Pack on SE models offers two advanced features to actively avoid accidents, both based on a multi-functional camera: a Front Collision Warning System (FCWS) and a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS). Using front camera sensors, the FCWS alerts the driver acoustically and visually about collision risks arising from other vehicles. The LDWS alerts the driver with an audio alarm sound if the car moves over lane markings to prevent unsafe movements. LDWS and FCWS are optional on SE models and above as part of the Driver Assist Pack.
On the convenience side, the i10 scores with the tried and tested feature package of its predecessor: automatic air conditioning on SE and SE Blue models, with Premium and Premium SE equipped with climate control as standard. Heated steering wheel and heated front seats on Premium SE make it an ideal companion for every weather condition and every activity. Up to five people fit into the roomy interior and the segment-leading boot volume of 252 litres offers generous stowage.
Made in Europe, for Europe – the i10 success story
Since its introduction back in 2008 the i10 has been a major success story for Hyundai Motor UK, with over 216,670 units sold up until November 2017, making it one of the best-selling cars in this segment in recent years.
The original i10 alone, with its unique value for money offer, achieved nearly 114,000 sales between 2008 and 2014. When the second-generation i10 was introduced in late 2013 the model truly became a European car – designed and developed at the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Center (HMETC) in Rüsselsheim, Germany, and manufactured at Hyundai Assan Otomotiv Sanayi (HAOS) in ĺzmit, Turkey.
