Hyundai does good business in South Africa with the grand i10 serving first-time buyers who need an affordable budget car.
The third-generation i10 is due to arrive on showroom floors in 2020 which means it could be revealed this year. Heavily camouflaged prototypes have been photographed testing in Europe in icy conditions. While it’s difficult to tell what design Hyundai will take with the new i10, it’s safe to assume that the new model will receive a fresh face in the form of a new grille and bumper design.
Nonetheless, critical changes are expected on the inside where the i10 will feature a newly designed interior incorporating a larger infotainment screen and a more aesthetically pleasing dashboard design similar to that seen in the latest Kia Picanto. Also note the new rectangular air vents and new-look instrument cluster.
The new Hyundai i10 will feature a newly-designed cabin with a larger infotainment system.
In terms of engines, you can expect small capacity engines in the form of a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder engine as well as a 4-cylinder 1.2-litre engine to be offered in combination with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission.
We will keep you updated as soon as more information becomes available.
