Going into its 3rd Generation, All New i10 will offer a comprehensive upgrade over previous models, with a substantial make over in exterior and interior design, equipment and driving dynamics. A brand new car from the ground up, All New i10 will reposition the model within the A segment and will offer many USP’s against its competitors with a focus on technology, segment leading connectivity and safety features and a full 5 seat configuration when many in the segment only offer 4 seat models.
Exterior design has evolved from the previous generation, with All New i10’s dynamic and sleek design offering a contrast between its soft surfaces and sharp lines. Compared to its predecessor, the All-New i10 has enhanced proportions, with its visual stance improved by a lowered roof (20 mm), wider body (20 mm) and longer wheelbase (40mm). These enhancements can be complemented by newly-designed optional 16-inch alloy wheels, resulting in an energetic and agile look.
All New i10’s stylish interior design further demonstrates the repositioning of the model when compared to the previous generation, without losing any of the i10’s reputation for real world convenience and usability. The entry level S specification of the previous model is now no longer available; with customers now enjoying the increased specification of SE trim at the starting point of the All New i10 range.
The i10 SE 1.0 MPi 67PS 5 speed manual is available from £12,495 and offers a high level of standard equipment that includes DAB radio with 3.8” display, Bluetooth, air conditioning, electric windows, leather steering wheel and gear lever, electric mirror adjustment and cruise control. Standard safety equipment includes Lane Keep Assist (LKA), Driver Attention Alert (DAA), High Beam Assist (HBA) and Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) with integrated Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Departure Warning System with Lane Keep Assist (LKAS) and eCall, which can automatically dial emergency services in the event of a serious accident, shortening response times and improving post-accident protection.
Customers looking for enhanced connectivity and style can choose the i10 SE Connect trim, starting at £13,495 for the i10 SE Connect 1.0 MPi 67PS 5 speed manual. Specification enhancements over the SE include 15” alloy wheels, an 8” touchscreen display audio, rear view camera, subscription free Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, Bluetooth with voice activation and 2 rear speakers. The i10 SE Connect is also available with a 1.2 MPi 84PS four cylinder engine, with both powertrains available as a 5 speed manual, or a new 5 speed automated manual transmission.
Offering even further equipment, the i10 Premium 1.0 MPi 67PS 5 speed manual is available from £14,495 and includes 16” alloy wheels, halogen bi-function headlamps with integrated position light, LED daytime running lamps, front fog lamps and privacy glass. Interior specification is further enhanced with heated front seats and steering wheel, as well as a unique to Premium honeycomb design to the dashboard, door and gear lever surround trims. The i10 Premium is also available with a 1.2 MPi 84PS four cylinder engine, with both the 5 speed manual, or new 5 speed automated manual transmission available.
Customers choosing the Premium specification can also choose the optional Tech Pack which offers a wireless charging pad for compatible handheld devices and adds an 8” touchscreen navigation with Bluelink® telematics, giving owners the ability to locate the vehicle via GPS, LIVE services and additional navigation services such as the ability to send navigation instructions via smartphone and remotely lock the vehicle. In addition to the driver convenience features, Bluelink® also serves as a convenient diagnostic tool which will notify the driver of any vehicle maintenance issues that require attention. The Tech Pack also adds the intelligent speed limit warning function that provides the driver with a visual indication of the current speed limit. The Tech Pack is a £1000 option on Premium models.
All New i10 is available in a choice of 10 colours; Polar White and Tomato Red are both, no cost option solid paint finishes, with Phantom Black, Star Dust, Sleek Silver, Champion Blue, Slate Blue and three new colours of Dragon Red, Brass and Aqua Turquoise available as £550 options.
At Premium specification, for an additional £500, customers can also choose Phantom Black with Red roof, Polar White with Red or Black roof, whilst the new colours of Champion Blue, Dragon Red, Brass or Aqua Turquoise are also available with a Black roof.
Ashley Andrew, Managing Director, Hyundai Motor UK said “As the Hyundai brand continues to evolve, the All New i10 repositions the model within the A segment from a pure value for money offering to a model comprising safety equipment and trim levels from the premium segments above. As competitors withdraw from the A segment, we are confident that there is still a significant number of new car buyers looking for a vehicle with city car manoeuvrability and high equipment levels, a combination that All New i10 is perfectly positioned to offer. The repositioning of the model has seen the low price entry level S specification removed, however we expect All New i10 to benefit from considerable residual value uplift, giving customers enhanced PCP and PCH terms on the all new, bigger, smarter, safer and better looking car”.
All New i10 models come with Hyundai’s industry leading 5 Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty, Roadside Assistance package, 5 Year Annual Health Check, and 12 Year Anti Corrosion Warranty.
