Hyundai i10 to debut more safety, more tech

Paris show debut for facelifted version of Hyundai's city car.

Hyundai will debut the facelifted i10 city car at the Paris Motor Show in September.

Changes to the car, which goes on UK sale in January 2017, centre on styling and updated active safety and connectivity.

The i10 debuts the new ‘cascading front grille’, with a curved flowing line, that Hyundai says will become the new family identity for future models. The bumper design is revised and new round LED daytime running lights added.

At the rear the bumper is also remodelled, round rear fog lamps added to mirror the front design, and new materials installed. Completing the car’s revised look are side mouldings of a new shape and size and revised steel or alloy wheels in 14-inch size.

Blue and black interior colours are now available for all i10s, along with a new shade of red cloth on the upholstery. The major interior change, however, is the new seven-inch touchscreen navigation system offered on top-spec High trim models, which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.

The navigation system comes with a seven-year free subscription to Live Services, providing access to real-time traffic conditions, local weather and points of interest, and other information such as speed camera locations.

Safety upgrades centre on a new multi-functional camera that provides the data for a Front Collision Warning System (FCWS) and a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS). These are available as options on most trim levels.

Depending on model, automatic air conditioning, a heated steering wheel and front seat warmers are also available.

Mechanically there are slight changes to the steering ratio and suspension bump stops, but the powertrains remain as in the outgoing model, based around petrol engines of 1.0 or 1.25-litre size. These can be combined with a five-speed manual of four-speed auto gearbox, while the economy-pitched BlueDrive version of the 1.0 remains available.

Hyundai Motor UK president & CEO Tony Whitehorn believes that the new i10 will impress buyers. “New i10 showcases strong build quality and our passion for detail, while also including many features from the segments above,” he says. “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,” Whitehorn adds.
