The second-generation Hyundai i10 has been revealed at the Frankfurt motor show, and will go on sale at the start of next year.

Hyundai's all-new i10 is 80mm longer, 65mm wider and 50mm lower than its predecessor and its wheelbase is 5mm longer. Hyundai claims that this helps to give it more mature driving characteristics and best-in-class cabin and luggage space.

The engine line-up includes a range of three-cylinder 1.0-litre and four-cylinder 1.25-litre petrol units.

Hyundai is yet to detail the new i10's trim levels and equipment, but standard safety features will include stability control and front curtain airbags. 

A host of options will also be offered, including climate control, cruise control, a speed limiter and a heated leather steering wheel. The new i10 offers up to 1046 litres of storage space with the rear seats folded flat, as well as 252 litres in the boot.

Senior vice president and chief operating officer of Hyundai Motor Europe Allan Rushforth said: "Every aspect of the car has been designed and rigorously developed to meet the demands and needs of European consumers.

"New-generation i10 fully embodies Hyundai's 'true value' proposition, bringing higher levels of features and functionality than many buyers would expect to find in a vehicle of this segment."

Hyundai's new i10 has been designed and engineered in Europe and it will be built at the manufacturer's factory in Turkey.

Looks the same?

Are those saying it looks the same as the last one confusing it with the i20?

 

It looks different to me.

ahahaha....' i10 is set to rival 500'. Not in a million years will this i10 be a competitor to 500. They are totally different markets and demographs. The 500 buyer wouldn't even register the Hyundai. Likewise, the Hyundai buyer would dismiss the 500 as overpriced frippery.

Less of the "whiff of grey pound" then?

The present i10 was dismissed as being a pensioner's special, but this looks rather good, from the outside at least.  If they keep it under £10k, I'll certainly consider one and probably won't bother with the heated steering wheel.  Despite advancing years my circulation is perfectly fine and if pushed, I could always buy driving gloves.
