Hyundai is refining its i10 mini car with the introduction of a new 1.2-liter petrol engine which will be available in the UK from this September. Compared to the 1.1-liter unit, the new all-alloy engine’s output has been improved by 18 percent to 77PS while torque rises from 98Nm to 118Nm. As a result the top speed rises from 94 (151 km/h) to 102mph (164 km/h) and the benchmark 0-62mph (100 km/h) sprint drops by nearly three seconds to 12.8 seconds. -Continued
