Hyundai Motors India is seriously thinking of launching its i10 version in the United States, which was launched in India and 70 other countries last October. The car which is powered by a 1.2 litre Kappa Engine from Hyundai and delivers around 80 bhp and returns upto 56 mpg. The Hyundai i10 which is around 500 mm shorter than the Honda fit and much larger than the Smart Fortwo, is priced in the range between 5,300 EUR and 7600 EUR in India.

Sources say that Hyundai is planning to to name the car as i10 itself but the brand name could be either Kia or Hyundai. In order to get the car to American Standards the car would weigh around 400 pounds extra and some standard features like ABS, Dual Air Bags and keyless entry for the American market, the car could possibly be a thriller for the American people who are looking for a cheap commuter.
