The first official pictures of the new Hyundai i10 have been revealed, ahead of the car’s debut at next month’s Frankfurt motor show.

The new Hyundai i10 is based on a new platform making it 80mm longer, 65mm wider and 50mm lower than its predecessor.

The new dimensions and the repositioning of some suspension components, has allowed the designers greater flexibility in interior packaging, resulting in more legroom and increased boot space.

Equipment levels are said to be ‘generous’ with available goodies including climate control, heated steering wheel and cruise control.

The new i10 has been designed and developed at Hyundai’s Rüsselsheim technical centre in Germany, and will be built at the company’s factory in Ízmit, Turkey.

Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President of Hyundai Motor Europe, said: “New Generation i10 is another significant step forward for Hyundai Motor.  Every aspect of the car has been designed and rigorously developed to meet the demands and needs of European consumers.  New Generation i10 fully embodies Hyundai’s ‘true value’ proposition, bringing higher levels of features and functionality than many buyers would expect to find in a vehicle of this segment.”

The new Hyundai i10 will enter production September.
