Hyundai Reveals Sketch Of New i10, Likely To Be Sportier Version Of Nios

  • Aug 10, 2019

The European division of leading South Korean automobile manufacturer Hyundai has revealed the first sketches of the new generation i10. The car is likely to be similar to the upcoming Grand i10 Nios which will be launched in India and the global markets. The new i10 is expected to have slightly different styling than the Nios.

The new i10 will be launched at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. It will be sold only in Europe.

Sketches of the new car reveal that it will have some similarity with its Indian counterpart, which include the headlights. The European-specification i10 will have circular LED daytime running lights (DRLs) instead of the angular units on the Grand i10 Nios. That aside, the European i10 will have a more aggressive cascading grille. The i10, unlike the Nios, will have a split-design grille. The front bumper too is likely to flaunt a sportier look.

Hyundai, expectedly, has not revealed the interior of the European i10. Reports suggest that the car’s cabin would closely follow the Indian version. Interior highlights of the European hatchback are likely to comprise a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, cruise control, a twin-pod instrument cluster with multi-information display (MID), wireless charging, and automatic climate control.

Hyundai has confirmed that the new European i10 will have the Blue Link connected car technology like in the Venue. Whether the same will be offered on the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, is yet to be confirmed. The European-specification model may get additional safety features like lane keep assist, driver attention warning, and collision avoidance assist.

The new Hyundai i10 for Europe is expected have the same powertrain options like the Grand i10 Nios. The latter will be available in both diesel and petrol engine options. The 1.2-lite Kappa petrol motor will produce 114Nm peak torque and 83PS maximum power.The 1.2-litre diesel engine, on the other hand, will output 190Nm peak torque and 75PS maximum power. Both engines will be mated either to an automated manual transmission (AMT) unit or a 5-speed manual gearbox.
