Now, a second-generation i10, not dissimilar to the first, takes up the torch. Significant strides forward in desirability and overall quality have been promised, and they’ll need to be discernible now that others – the Volkswagen Group in particular – have aggressively re-entered the city car segment. The i10 was facelifted for 2017, with improved infotainment, a new grille and LED day-running-lights core behind the refresh.
Hyundai offers its new i10 with a choice of two petrol engines, a 1.0 litre and a 1.2 litre. All come as standard with a five-speed manual transmission, but buyers can opt for the 1.2-litre engine with a four-speed automatic.
A 'Blue Drive' version of the 1.0-litre i10 is also available, which delivers reduced emissions and improved economy compared to the standard version.
