Hyundai says the new i10’s design was inspired by Indian architecture and nature. The company will also release a European-market version of the new i10 at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, and while sketches of the latter suggest that the two hatchbacks will have a similar frontal design, it remains to be seen how many other similarities will exist.
Hyundai has revealed the all-new i10 hatchback ahead of its public unveiling at the 2019 Frankfurt International Motor Show. Like the exterior, the cabin of the Grand i10 Nios has evolved and has been designed keeping Indian requirements in mind. The cabin gets an integrated large touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity features. Space has been increased inside the cabin too and in terms of safety, the new Grand i10 will get standard safety kits like dual airbags and ABS with EBD.
The new i10 has a two-tone beige and light brown color in certain markets. To impart a more aesthetic appeal, the interiors have been accentuated with chrome and silver accents at multiple points. Other interesting design features like metal finish center console, new instrument cluster, blue interior illumination, etc., have been added to offer a more luxurious and ergonomic experience.
The global version of the 2020 Hyundai i10 has been revealed and it gets some changes over the NIOS. Now with the new safety norms of India, Hyundai Grand i10 will soon be offered with standard safety features like ABS, EBD and dual airbags, seatbelt reminders, parking sensors and others. The 1.2-liter petrol engine that makes 82bhp with 112 Nm of torque is expected. We don’t know if there will be a diesel engine since there is a fast dropping demands the diesel cars in India.
For its powertrain, the i10 comes with two engine choices: a 1.0-liter 3-cylinder making 67 horsepower and 96 Nm of torque, and a 1.2-liter 4-cylinder with 84 horsepower and 118 Nm of torque. The transmission options are a 5-speed MT, and get this, a 5-speed AMT or automated manual transmission. Hyundai says this helps improve the i10’s efficiency thanks to its lighter weight and reduced friction. And for those who want to hypermile, a special ECO-pack is also available and this comes with adjusted gear ratios, four seats (!), and minuscule 14-inch wheels.
The all-new Hyundai i10 comes with an integrated 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, which is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also gets a wireless charging option. Unlike the India-spec model, the new i10 for Europe gets BlueLink telematics that provides benefits regarding safety and security, control and connectivity via an app. It allows users to search for points of interest (POI) and send the search results directly to the car’s satellite navigation, which means it is set up even before they get into the car. Other features include ‘Find My Car’, which allows drivers to locate their vehicle easily in an unfamiliar setting, as well as parking space and fuel station search, which offer live prices and availability. Customers also have an option to subscribe to Hyundai LIVE Services, which offers real-time traffic and weather conditions, speed cameras, etc.
Hyundai Grand i10, which is known as the i10 in the international markets will soon get a full model replacement. The all-new i10 has been caught testing under heavy camouflage in Europe and it will get an all-new platform. Hyundai is expected to launch the new model in the international markets by the end of this year followed by a launch in India.
