Hyundai has once again impressed with the introduction of their new i10 model, boasting a range of updates that have taken it to the next level. From a sportier stance to advanced connectivity features, the i10 has received a significant overhaul since its original launch in 2019. But that's not all - the Korean automaker has also unveiled the i10 N Line, inspired by their performance models from Hyundai N.
Exterior Design: Bold and Sporty
One of the most notable updates on the new Hyundai i10 is its redesigned exterior, conveying a bold and sporty feel. The model has a low roof and long wheelbase, which give it a distinctive look compared to its predecessor. Customers can choose from nine exterior colors, including two new options: Lumen Grey and Meta Blue, both featuring a pearl effect and a black two-tone roof.
The front of the Hyundai i10 features newly designed LED daytime running lights that are integrated with the sporty grille, which now has a new beeswax-like mesh design. The rear combined LED lights display an "H" on the tailgate's horizontal line, giving it a unique look. The i10 N Line takes inspiration from motorsport, with specially designed bumpers, inserts, and red details. The model is launched with new 16-inch alloy wheels that complete its aggressive appearance.
Interior Design: Playful and Comfortable
Inside, the Hyundai i10 has received a range of updates to create a comfortable and playful atmosphere. Blue mood lights in the front seats create a relaxing ambiance, while the new Purple Package adds a sense of fun to the car's sporty exterior. The package includes tartan fabric seats with vertical purple lines, purple detailing in the stitching and air vents, and gray touchpoints with purple gloss visible on the instrument panel and center console.
Connectivity and Safety Features: Advanced and Reliable
Hyundai has also equipped the new i10 with advanced connectivity features that create a more comfortable in-car experience. The model includes a 4.2-inch LCD instrumentation as standard, USB Type-C front and rear, second-generation eCall based on the 4G network, and Over The Air (OTA) map updates. The model remains consistent with its 8-inch Audio Video Navigation (AVN) screen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless mobile charger, and the latest update to Bluelink telematics services.
The Hyundai i10 comes with more safety features from Hyundai SmartSense compared to before. Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) has been extended to include "Cyclist" in addition to "City," "Interurban," and "Pedestrian." Lane Following Assist (LFA) uses the steering to keep the car in the current lane, while Rear Occupant Alert (ROA) reminds the driver via a message in the cluster if the rear door has been opened during the journey.
Practicality: A Reliable Choice
The i10 remains a practical choice for European drivers, with a load capacity of 252 liters with the seats up and 1,050 liters with the seats down. It also features electrically retractable side mirrors, a two-stage luggage rack, one-hand folding of the rear seat, and a reversing camera.
The new Hyundai i10 and i10 N Line are bold and refined upgrades from their predecessor, showcasing Hyundai's commitment to quality, reliability, and practicality. With advanced connectivity features, improved safety measures, and a dynamic style, the Hyundai i10 and Hyundai i10 N Line are sure to impress. Production of the new Hyundai i10 will begin in April 2023. @via Hyundai.
