Is Hyundai actually working on a 1.0-liter engine for i10
? We guess so.
After Indian Autos Blog speculated on the 1.0-liter i10 Kappa
, it is now Autocar India who have additional details on this variant. It reports Hyundai will launch the revised i10 range
during next month's Paris motor show.
The motor in contention is a 1.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine which is a scaled-down 1.2-litre Kappa unit. Autocar India adds that Hyundai will equip the 1.0-liter engine with variable valve timing.
Hyundai has said that this 1.0-liter Kappa engine "is not a cheap unit, just a very efficient one.”
The 1.2-liter engine is also said to turn more powerful, more efficient and environment-friendly at the Paris Motor Show next month.
