There’s good news in the air over at Hyundai Motor UK as they have just announced to MotorMartin the pricing and specification of their All New i10, the latest generation of the multi award winning city car, which goes on sale on the 18th January.
Arriving at its 3rd Generation, the all new i10 is a comprehensive upgrade over previous models, with substantial changes regarding exterior and interior design, equipment and driving dynamics. In fact, it could be said to be a brand new model from the ground up offering technology, segment leading connectivity and safety features and even a full 5 seat configuration when many in its segment only offer 4 seat models.
Evolving from the previous generation the i10 has increased proportions, with its visual stance improved by a lowered roof (20 mm), wider body (20 mm) and longer wheelbase (40mm). These enhancements can be complemented by newly-designed optional 16-inch alloy wheels, resulting in what Hyundai describe as an energetic and agile look.
Further changes have occurred with the i10’s stylish interior design repositioning the model when compared to the previous generation, without losing any of the i10’s reputation for real world convenience and usability. Indeed, the entry level S specification is no longer available meaning that you can now enjoy the increased specification of SE trim at the starting point of the i10 range.
Hyundai have shared the following information with MotorMartin regarding the latest engine and specifications of the all new i10:
The i10 SE 1.0 MPi 67PS 5 speed manual is available from £12,495 and offers a high level of standard equipment that includes DAB radio with 3.8” display, Bluetooth, air conditioning, electric windows, leather steering wheel and gear lever, electric mirror adjustment and cruise control. Standard safety equipment includes Lane Keep Assist (LKA), Driver Attention Alert (DAA), High Beam Assist (HBA) and Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) with integrated Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Departure Warning System with Lane Keep Assist (LKAS) and eCall, which can automatically dial emergency services in the event of a serious accident, shortening response times and improving post-accident protection.
Customers looking for enhanced connectivity and style can choose the i10 SE Connect trim, starting at £13,495 for the i10 SE Connect 1.0 MPi 67PS 5 speed manual. Specification enhancements over the SE include 15” alloy wheels, an 8” touchscreen display audio, rear view camera, subscription free Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, Bluetooth with voice activation and 2 rear speakers. The i10 SE Connect is also available with a 1.2 MPi 84PS four cylinder engine, with both available as a 5 speed manual, or a new 5 speed automated manual transmission.
Offering even further equipment, the i10 Premium 1.0 MPi 67PS 5 speed manual is available from £14,495 and includes 16” alloy wheels, halogen bi-function headlamps, LED daytime running lamps, front fog lamps, privacy glass, heated front seats and steering wheel. The i10 Premium is also available with a 1.2 MPi 84PS four cylinder engine, with both the 5 speed manual, or new 5 speed automated manual transmission available.
Customers choosing the Premium specification can choose the optional Tech Pack offering a wireless charging pad for compatible handheld devices, 8” touchscreen navigation with Bluelink® telematics, giving owners the ability to locate the vehicle via GPS, LIVE services and additional navigation services such as the ability to send navigation instructions via smartphone and remotely lock the vehicle. The Tech Pack is a £1000 option on Premium models.
There’s even a choice of ten colours!
Ashley Andrew, Managing Director, Hyundai Motor UK commented to MotorMartin that, “As the Hyundai brand continues to evolve, the All New i10 repositions the model within the A segment from a pure value for money offering to a model comprising safety equipment and trim levels from the premium segments above. As competitors withdraw from the A segment, we are confident that there is still a significant number of new car buyers looking for a vehicle with city car manoeuvrability and high equipment levels, a combination that All New i10 is perfectly positioned to offer. The repositioning of the model has seen the low price entry level S specification removed, however we expect All New i10 to benefit from considerable residual value uplift, giving customers enhanced PCP and PCH terms on the all new, bigger, smarter, safer and better looking car”.
All New i10 models come with Hyundai’s industry leading 5 Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty, Roadside Assistance package, 5 Year Annual Health Check, and 12 Year Anti Corrosion Warranty.
