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.
