The i10 made its world debut in the Indian market first, way back in the year 2007. Infact, Hyundai made India its export hub as well for this best-selling small car. The i10 was well received by the Indian market and soon the car overtook the Santro as the best-selling Hyundai in the Indian market. Time and again, the i10 has been among the top three selling cars in the Indian market and the new updated version, launched in September 2011, further increased its appeal among the users. Exterior wise, the i10 is designed keeping Hyundaiï¿½s Fluidic DNA in mind, the updated design isnï¿½t really a huge step forward as compared to the earlier version. The i10 now has a more up-market look and the front end has newer, bolder and bigger headlamps. The complete redesigning of the grille and bumper not only give it a hint of aggression but also create a more hexagonal frontal form, which can be seen other newer Hyundai products as well. The design upgrades continue on the sides and rear of the car, with new style wheels and redesigned rear lamps and bumper completing the new i10's contemporary and streetwise look. Step inside and the i10 can easily take in tall adults up front with three mid-sized people at the rear. Boot space is a very decent 225litres. What however makes you feel nice is the overall quality of the interiors. The look and feel of plastics is of the higher order and the design of the speedometer console and the fascia much better than most of the other cars in the same price band. All the buttons and the console get blue backlighting which looks terrific. The higher models also get steering mounted controls for the audio system with the latter being integrated perfectly into the central console. The cabin wears a mix of dark and light colors and it all seems to get along nicely. The i10 is sold in two engine options. The smaller 1.1-litre iRDE2 (intelligent Responsive Drive Engine) also received a minor update with the refreshed i10 in September 2011. It makes a maximum power of 69PS with an ARAI rated economy of 19.81kmpl. The better seller though is the bigger 1.2-litre engine option. This kappa2 unit now comes with a first-in-class VTVT (Variable Timing Valve Train) technology which basically gives you best of both the worlds ï¿½ performance and economy. Infact, at a rated 20.36kmpl. This engine gives 80 PS and is smooth and easy to drive. The i10 is also a very good highway car with the 1.2 engine feeling comfortable at an indicated 110-115km/h. Handling is nippy and pretty good and body control is also decent. Brakes work very well and ABS is standard on the top end Asta version. The i10 at speeds over bad roads can also turn out to be not so comfortable for rear passengers.Prices for the Hyundai i10 start at 3.6 lakhs to 6.1 lakhs ex-showroom, Delhi and is a great hatchback.
