The new model both enhances Hyundai Motor’s product line-up and introduces new standards to the region’s A-segment, bringing class-leading space, levels of comfort and safety from the segment above, and sophisticated exterior and interior design.
Another evolution over Original i10 is the introduction of what Hyundai Motor calls ‘true value’ – the addition of desirable features from segments above and emotional qualities such as dynamic styling to existing rational features such as high quality and high efficiency. Exemplified by models such as New Generation i30 and New ix35, true value is now integral to the appeal of New Generation i10.
Influenced by Hyundai Motor’s design philosophy, fluidic sculpture, New Generation i10 features sleek and substantial lines that emphasize the naturally athletic stance of a model which is longer, wider and lower than its predecessor.
The new proportions are mirrored by a driving experience that has been developed to meet European preferences. Relocated and retuned components result in greater body and wheel control, delivering more driver involvement and ride comfort comparable to that of cars from higher segments.
The larger bodyshell of New Generation i10 yields one of the roomiest occupant cabins on the market, as well as a best-in-class 252 litres of trunk capacity. Up to 1046 litres becomes available when the rear seats are folded – also a best-in-class figure. New levels of craftsmanship can be found in the spacious interior, together with levels of comfort and safety equipment commonly only found in segments above.
