Hyundai i10 will change the generation this year

Lifting the window sill is very similar to the former, and yet different, like the window in the rear door. The front door also speaks of a new bodywork “gland”: the triangle at the base of the mirror is completely inscribed in the connector, and before that the corner came forward.

The second generation of the Hyundai i10 subcompact appeared in 2013 and was updated in 2016. It’s time for the third generation. Edition Autoevolution assures that the new machine in some way (apparently, on the chassis) is associated with Hatch Hyundai Grand i10, which is available in India and India from the same 2013th, as a simple i10. True, the pictures say about the new body.

The air intakes at the edges of the bumper are reminiscent of the KIA Picanto, but a couple of round lights in the grille – the intersection with the previous generation i10 after restyling.

We assume that the range of engines of the new city car i10 will generally repeat the same. And this, depending on the market, gasoline units 1.0 (67 hp, 95 Nm) and 1.2 (83-87 hp, 114-121 Nm), as well as 1.2 diesel (75 hp, 190 Nm). You can, of course, still dream about the 100-strong (172 Nm) turbo engine 1.0 T-GDI from Picanto. Only it is unlikely that such a model will get, which is considered a budget. But “one liter” on liquefied petroleum gas is quite likely, if such a version was offered earlier.

The central deflectors of the new i10 seem to be borrowed from the last Picanto, but otherwise everything is original: the console and the tunnel, the dashboard and central screen in the overall frame (on the prototype, however, there is no display – in its place is a plug and a shelf).

The Indian version of the current model called the Grand i10 and its raised version of the Grand i10X (left) differed from the European i10 (right) not only with equipment: with a similar body, the Indian had a noticeably longer base and length, 2425/3765 mm versus 2385/3645 mm, respectively.

The dimensions of the hatch can also be predicted. She needs to distance herself more from the Hyundai Santro hatchback that appeared last fall (length – 3,610 mm), but at the same time not to interfere with the model that is one step higher, that is, Hyundai i20 (4035 mm). In general, 3.8 m from bumper to bumper would be just right.
