Hyundai has extended the i10's wheelbase by 40mm, but smaller front and rear overhangs mean overall length has only increased by 5mm.
As with the current i10, the daytime running lights are located within the grille, which has been made wider to reflect Hyundai’s current styling.
Interior materials, connectivity features and safety systems have filtered down from the rest of the range, including an 8.0in touchscreen that Hyundai says is the largest available in the segment.
Hyundai’s Bluelink connected car platform can add app-controlled location tracking, live fuel prices and the ability to send navigation directions from your smartphone to the car.
Production will take place at Hyundai’s factory in İzmit, Turkey alongside the i20 supermini.
Both can be specified with a five-speed manual or five-speed automated manual transmission, the latter of which Hyundai claims delivers superior fuel economy to a traditional automatic gearbox due to its lightness and reduced friction.
An optional Eco Pack adjusts gear ratios and uses 14in wheels for even greater efficiency.
