Like you we hope the new i10 looks a lot better than this rendering published on German magazine AutoBild.
There’s one design detail which is accurate, if the render is compared to spyshots posted on the net. The rear quarter glass that pierces into the C-Pillar is the real deal.
As reported time and time again, the European production of the i10 will move to the Turkish plant which is currently in the ramp up stage. The same plant will produce a compact sedan next year with the new i10 platform.
Features of the new i10 are inspired by models such as the new ix20 and i30. It will reportedly be offered in 3- and 5-door versions (current model is strictly a 5-door), with 1.0L and 1.2L three-cylinder and four-cylinder engines respectively under the bonnet.
Hyundai has showcased small capacity turbocharged petrol engines, which could make it to the i10 in the coming years, if not at launch.
The 2014 Hyundai i10 will premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. Hyundai India may introduce it in late 2013 or at the Auto Expo in Noida next year. For the Indian market, Hyundai will offer a three-cylinder, 1.1L 75PS diesel engine, on top of Kappa petrol engines. This eagerly-awaited candidate presently services certain UK-spec i20 diesel variants.
