An updated version of the Hyundai i10 was unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. Feature styling enhancements and technological and safety improvements from cars in the segments above Hyundai has increased the award-winning city car’s appeal still further.
The revised i10 features a new front bumper, round LED daytime running lights and Hyundai’s new signature “Cascade Grille” first seen on the New Generation i30. At the back Hyundai has fitted a redesigned rear bumper with a black inlay and round fog lights. The rear lights have also been tweaked with a new, darker housing to give a sportier appearance. Finally for exterior changes, the side mouldings have been updated to give the i10 a more sleek and modern profile.
Inside there is the option of a new red interior colour and customers can now choose between black, blue, beige and orange interior colours on all models in the revised i10 range.
To further modernise the Hyundai i10’s design Hyundai has also updated the design for the 14” steel or alloy wheels. But the upgrades go more than skin deep as both the suspension and steering have been enhanced to improve the ride and handling.
As with the current i10 the revised i10 will be offered with a choice of two petrol engines, a 1.0-litre and a 1.25-litres, and come with the option of a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic.
Hyundai is bringing a range of new technologies to the city car market with the updated i10. The new i10 is now available with the latest connectivity features integrated into the new 7-inch touchscreen navigation system. This system offers support for both Apple CarPlay and Android auto allowing seamless integration between the car and smartphones running the iOS or Android operating systems including the ability to mirror the functionality of these devices on the car’s display. Furthermore, the navigation element of the system includes free access to LIVE service provided by TomTom for 7 years. LIVE services feed real time information about traffic, weather and speed camera locations directly into the navigation system meaning you’re always up-to-date.
The new Hyundai i10 also features two new safety features normally associated with larger cars, both of which use the new multi-function camera. The Front Collision Warning System (FCWS) alerts the drive visually and audibly about the risk of colliding with another vehicle while the Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) sounds an alarm when the vehicle crosses lane markings without indicating.
