The Hyundai i10 was once the most celebrated small car in India and now after years of its launch all the excitement about the Hyundai global small car has died with the advent of new rivals in the form of the Ford Figo, Chevrolet Beat and the Volkswagen Polo.
Though these new arrivals haven't exactly pulled down the Hyundai i10, they are slowly and steadily eating into the i10's market share. This has forced Hyundai to take a drastic step! Refreshing the head lamps, tail lamps and the front bumper in the name of a facelift. And Hyundai has been caught in the act.
Hyundai i10 facelift has been spotted testing in the Chennai-Bangalore highway and the new car, as all facelifts get, gets refreshed head lamps, new tail lamp clusters, revised bumper and indicators on the rear view mirror.
Neat job, Hyundai.
The facelift could be launched by Diwali and we wouldn't be surprised if Hyundai prefers to call it the 'i10 Transform'. We wish Hyundai does a better job than it did with the Verna Transform facelift.
