Spied – 2014 Hyundai i10 continues testing in India as well

Posted on: May 27, 2013 - 7:31pm IST

The all new 2014 Hyundai i10 continues testing in India as well as in Europe. This test mule of the new i10 was caught by Team BHP member ‘Amtak’ on a highway near Pune.

As we reported in the past, the i10 in India features a different rear door design as compared to its European sibling. Hyundai is likely to do this as we Indians prioritize rear seat space even in a hatchback, while the Europeans give more preference to style and design.

Don’t those alloys look stylish?

This photo clearly explains what we’re talking about. The rear three quarter glass is similar to the i10 currently sold in India. However, the test prototypes spied in other parts of the world have a smaller quarter glass which is steeply raked.

The European i10 features a smaller quarter glass window, a kink at the top and a steeply raked window line.

The all new i10 is expected to be unveiled globally at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. Following this, we should see the car go on sale in India.

The Indian i10 will be available with a 1.2-liter petrol engine and a 1.1-liter diesel engine. Apart from the diesel heart, expect Hyundai to richly equip the i10 with all sorts of features. If we’re to go by the European version, expect features like ESP, cruise control and push button start.

In India, Hyundai is expected to retain the outgoing i10 and position the new one above it.

    They would be retaining the current model for better economies of scale; more profits for the company. Have travelled with this car for close to 60 kms, I can say that the car would have great highway manners + feature packed.

    the door without that up design looks better and different..
    and why are they retaining the old model?
    that simply leads to cannibalisation of both
