Hyundai Reveals Facelifted i10 Ahead Of Paris Debut

The covers have been taken off the facelifted Hyundai i10 before sales of the tiny city car commence in the UK in January,

Set to debut publicly at next month’s Paris Motor Show, the refreshed i10 is the first time the model has been updated since the second-generation car launched in 2013. While the updates are minimal, the company hopes they will help the i10 better rival the Kia Picanto, Volkswagen Up, Seat Mii and Skoda Citigo.

At the front, the 2017 Hyundai i10 includes a tweaked grille and a new set of LED daytime running lights. These changes are complemented with a new bumper design and a set of 14-inch steel or alloy wheels. Styling tweaks to the rear end include a new bumper, different materials on the taillights, round rear fog lamps and a subtle black inlay.

The biggest changes to the new car come in the cabin. For starters, a seven-inch touchscreen navigation system is standard in high-end models and includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The navigation system also comes with a seven year free subscription to the company’s life traffic monitoring system.

Additionally, Hyundai has added a front collision warning system to the car as well as a lane departure warning system, both of which work thanks to front camera sensors.

In terms of engines, the 2017 i10 will maintain the current car’s 1.0-liter and 1.25-liter petrol engines mated to either a five-speed manual transmission as standard or a four-speed automatic ‘box.

    The title says “i20”, but it’s about facelifted i10 I guess. Also I like the new front, and I was wondering that why Hyundai doesn’t make a diesel version.
