Hyundai has revealed the facelifted i10 ahead of its debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show. Aside from the new look, the i10 comes with an updated infotainment system.
Up front, this Korean subcompact hatch is fitted with Hyundai’s ‘Cascading’ grille, which features a less angular shape as compared to the previous i10. The said grille design is said to be integrated to future Hyundai models, becoming the brand’s new corporate look. In addition, the 2017 i10 gets a revamped bumper and round LED daytime running lights, placed at the edges of the grille. The rear, on the other hand, has a redesigned bumper and round fog lamps. The vehicle is finished off with a new 14-inch steel or alloy wheels.
The interior of the i10 has a two-tone theme along with a three-spoke steering wheel, white-on-black instrument cluster, and an automatic air conditioning system. It also has a 7-inch touchscreen with navigation system, latest connectivity features, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.
Safety-wise, the i10 is equipped with a Front Collision Warning System (FCWS) and a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS).
The 2017 i10 is powered either by a 66hp 1.0L or an 87 hp 1.2L gasoline engine. It is mated to a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. Moreover, the i10 can come with a 1.0L turbocharged gasoline engine that delivers 100 hp.
Locally, the i10 is no longer available. However, this Paris-bound subcompact hatchback gives us a glimpse of Hyundai’s new design direction.
