Hyundai i10

The new Hyundai i10 is available in the UK from 30 January 2014 and in SE Blue Drive 1.0 Manual form it will offer 98g/km CO2 emissions and 67.8mpg.

The new i10 will be available with two engines, both petrol. The 1.0-litre, three-cylinder powertrain has an output of 66PS and emits 108g/km in standard manual form, and it can travel from standstill to 62mph in 14.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 96mph.

Expected to take approximately 40% of total sales, the four-cylinder 1.2-litre engine delivers 87PS. When mated to manual transmission it emits 112g/km CO2, but an extremely high 142g/km with automatic transmission. The manual 1.2-litre can accelerate from standstill to 62mph in 12.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 106mph.

The new i10 certainly looks better than its predecessor, being longer (+80mm), wider (+65mm) and lower (-50mm), and all models come standard with five seats, apart from the (lowest emission) SE Blue Drive derivative which only has four seats.

The new i10 is equipped with a range of standard and optional equipment typically found on cars from segments above, including automatic climate control, heated leather steering wheel, cruise control, standard-fitment Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and six airbags.

The new Hyundai i10 range starts from £8,345.
