The new generation 2014 Hyundai i10 is a car made by European standards in mind, so Frankfurt is probably the best place to introduce it. Following the success of the i30 and then the i20, Hyundai decided to go smaller still and brought out the i10. The car is designed in Rüsselsheim and built in Turkey. So it’s not really Korean anymore.

The 2014 i10 benefits from relocated and retuned components that result in greater body and wheel control, delivering more driver involvement and ride comfort comparable to that of cars from higher segments. Hyundai was adamant that the i10 must feel like a European mini car to have any chance of success.

They didn’t forget the practical stuff, either. The 2014 Hyundai i10 has the roomiest cabin in its segment, and comes with a class-leading 252 litre. Lower the rear seats and that volume goes up to 1046 liters.

Demonstrating Hyundai Motor’s confidence in its European build quality, the 2014 Hyundai i10 will come with the company’s Five Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty. As for the engine lineup and technical specs, as well as pricing, that will vary depending on the country and will be announced later.

Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Hyundai Motor Europe, commented: “The introduction of New Generation i10 represents a pivotal moment for Hyundai Motor in Europe and for the A-segment in the region.  Rich in features and abilities normally only found in vehicles from segments above, New Generation i10 offers consumers premium equipment and abilities –without asking them to pay a premium price.  In addition, consumers benefit from more practicality and space, as well as style and comfort; we’re confident New Generation i10 will win new customers while retaining the many new customers won by Original i10.”
