Longer (+80mm), wider (+65mm) and lower (-50mm) than its predecessor, New Generation i10 provides more legroom and cargo capacity than before. Front and rear passengers benefit from combined legroom of 1,890mm, while boot capacity has been boosted by more than 10% to 252 litres with all seats in place.
The European Hyundai design team, led by Chief Designer Thomas Bürkle, has created a dynamic shape using fluidic sculpture, Hyundai Motor Company's design philosophy, to emphasise the new car's athletic proportions and generous external dimensions.
As with 95% of Hyundai cars sold in Europe, New Generation i10 has been designed and developed at the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany. New Generation i10 will become the first A-segment Hyundai to also be built in the region.
Set to enter production in September, New Generation i10 will be made at Hyundai's factory in Ízmit, Turkey. The annual capacity of the plant, which already produces the B-segment New i20 model, is rising to 200,000 cars, following a multi-million Euro investment in infrastructure in the region. Once New Generation i10 goes on sale across Europe, 90% of Hyundai cars sold in Europe will be built in the region.
More information will be released ahead of New Generation i10's debut at the Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA) in Frankfurt in September.Hyundai introduces renewed i10
