Hyundai updates i10 city car


Hyundai has updated its i10 city car, with a facelift, also adding new safety and connectivity.

“New i10 showcases strong build quality and our passion for detail, while also including many features from the segments above,” said Tony Whitehorn, President & CEO Hyundai Motor UK Ltd. “The impressive package has made the i10 one of the best-selling cars in its class and popular with customers across the UK - a success story that the New i10 is set to carry on.”

The car adds new round LED daytime running lights, positioned at the edges of the new grille. 

Customers can now also choose from blue, red and black interior colours on all trims.

Like its predecessor, New i10 will come with the proven choice of two petrol engines, 1.0-litre and 1.25-litre, driving the front wheels through five-speed manual as standard or four-speed automatic gearboxes. The BlueDrive model, based on the 1.0-litre petrol variant, includes a number of features to reduce fuel consumption.

The top level trim includes a 7" screen, which brings with it Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 

In terms of safety, New i10 now comes with two advanced features to actively avoid accidents, both based on the new multi-functional camera: a Front Collision Warning System (FCWS) and a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) 

Previous spec is retained including automatic air conditioning, heated steering wheel and front seat warmers.

    But you still loose the cruise control if you opt for the automatic model. This should not be the case. Hyundai do not give a plausible reason for this when questioned.
