Hyundai launched the first i10 back in 2008 and since then the car has been quite a success, especially on markets like Europe. Now, Hyundai will unveil a new generation i10, and we just got the first details on it with just a few days before the official debut at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The i10 is a car that aims mostly towards the young customers, so, as no surprise Hyundai worked a lot to make it more appealing into that segment. The car is now lower and wider (20 mm both ways), and “is characterized by the clean, smoothly muscled main body, which has been shaped to provide maximum inner space.”

For the exterior, the new i10 gets a wide front grille with round LED Daytime Running Lights, plus two horizontal crease lines break up the soft surfaces of the boot and run into the taillight graphics. Hyundai is offering 1o exterior colors, including three new ones: Dragon Red, Brass and Aqua Turquoise, but also, thanks to the option of a two-tone roof, customers can choose between 22 exterior color combinations.

The interior has been described as both “youthful and practical” and can be ordered in four different interior color combinations. Despite being a compact car, the i10 comes with a trunk capacity of 252 liters and with increased space for both driver and passengers.

And because we are leaving in the era of connectivity, the i10 is offered with an eight-inch color touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto guarantee seamless integration. As an option customers will get Connected Car platform, Find My Car and Hyundai Live Services.

At launch the 2020 i10 will be offered with two different engines: a 1.0-litre MPi 3-cylinder with 67 horsepower and 96 Nm torque, as well as a 1.2-litre MPi 4-cylinder with 84 horsepower and 118 Nm torque. The two engines can be ordered with a five-gear manual transmission or a five-gear automated manual transmission (AMT).
