Hyundai’s new European A-segment car revealed

EUROPEAN: The New Generation i10 has been designed in Rüsselsheim. BIGGER: The car provides more legroom and cargo capacity. DYNAMIC SHAPE: The design team has used fluidic sculpture to emphasise the car’s proportions.

HYUNDAI MOTOR EUROPE released the first pictures of New Generation i10, the company’s completely-new European A-segment car. 

Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, commented: “New Generation i10 is another significant step forward for Hyundai Motor.  Every aspect of the car has been designed and rigorously developed to meet the demands and needs of European consumers.”

Appearing five years after its predecessor went on sale, New Generation i10 possesses generous levels of equipment, space and functionality, say the manufacturers.

Available equipment such as automatic climate control, heated leather steering wheel and cruise control with speed limiter provides bigger-car comfort, while safety features include standard-fitment stability control and front curtain airbags.

The New Generation i10 provides more legroom and cargo capacity.  Front and rear passengers benefit from combined legroom of 1.890 mm, while trunk capacity has been boosted by more than 10% to 252 litres with all seats in place.

To take full advantage of its dimensions, New Generation i10 has been tuned to deliver refined driving dynamics and low noise levels.

The European Hyundai design team, led by Chief Designer Thomas Bürkle, has created a dynamic shape using fluidic sculpture to emphasise the new car’s proportions and external dimensions. 

The New Generation i10 has been designed and developed at the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany.  It will become the first A-segment Hyundai to also be built in the region.

More information will be released ahead of New Generation i10’s debut at the Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA) in Frankfurt in September.
