HYUNDAI i10 · photos, packages and modifications

There was model in Hyundai came up with the huge success in sales for the manufacturer after a long time since it was introduced back in the year of 2008, namely as Hyundai i10. At the time of Scrap page scheme of the Government, the popularity had been ascended in an efficient way. Compared to the more stylish city cars including the Volkswagen up and the Fiat 500, this car was treated as budget alternative effectively. But, this model had more features rather than the great-value price tag. Because of the efficient features including the decent handling, ultra-low running costs and an excellent five-year warranty, the i10 is still treated as one of the best-selling cars in the UK market today.

In 2011, this model designed with new engines along with the new look that would probably be given it with a mid-life facelift. In the case of later models, they would probably be included with the 1.0-liter three-cylinder petrol engine that could be capable of offering 67.3 mpg and emitted out 99g/km in a better way. Because of this reason, it became as free from the London Congestion Charge and road tax options. In September 2013, the all-new i10 model will be introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show before it goes for sales at the end of the year. Even though the details of this car are uncommon one, this car is expected to go through distinctive performance compared to more efficient engines along with the option of styling.

Even though there are many distinctive cars available, it is an easy task to overlook the i10 model. But, it lacked out the modern lines of the VW up and the retro looks associated with the Fiat 500 and still it is treated as the appealing option. In 2011, this model came up with the facelift along with the features of taillights, bumpers and new headlights that would probably be inspired through the fluidic sculpture design language of the firm, which had seen on the ix35 and the ix20 models. This model still appears as the one with bit slab-sided and as ungainly on its small wheels, but with the certain improvement. When you go through the display screens, it was available with blue lighting along with the redesigned instrument cluster.

The interior tweaks of the car were subtle one and it would probably be provided with the rear passengers to get the cupholder. Even though the design is not an exciting one, the range of plastics used in this model can be able to offer the opportunity to the cut and thrust that needs for daily use. This car came with four different specifications including Classic, Style, Blue and Active. But, all the versions came with the standard and decent amount of kit. The entry-level classic model came with the features of USB connectivity, air-conditioning and electric front windows as added one. The Blue cars had been designed with tiny 13-inch steel wheels.

In the case of engine options, this i10 model was available with only two engine options and there was no diesel option. One of the engines was the smallest one available in the eco-special i10 Blue, which was designed as the three-cylinder 1.0-liter petrol unit. It was capable of developing 68 bhp and consuming 14.8 seconds to reach 62 mph. This model was lacking with the smoothness and refinement that would probably mark it as the one similar to the three cylinder unit, which was fitted to the VW up, Skoda Citigo and SEAT Mii models along with the capacity to make feel as sluggish on the road. Because of this reason, it is always recommended using the 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine capable of offering 85 bhp, which would probably make people feel as responsive and quieter one with efficient riding options.

The engines were designed with the difficult precise five-speed gearbox and the Active model was designed as the one with optional four-speed automatic transmission option in a better way. Strong brakes and Consistent steering were treated as the positive features of i10. But, the model had the problem of low-rolling resistance tyres those were less grippy one.

Now, it is the time for Hyundai to shine with its salient features. In 2012, the Hyundai i10 model was finished out the impressive seventh position in the Driver Power customer satisfaction survey along with the excellent reputation option for its reliability. There was also another achievement made by this car in the same year. This model came into the Top 100 with overall score of 84.72 percent, which would probably be made it as the 57th in chart. This position was two places ahead of the i20 model and very far from the 73rd position of Toyota Aygo and the 81st position of Fiat 500. Even though there were no major problems and recalls with this car, it had complaint from the owners related to the harsh ride quality. Euro NCAP gave this model with four-star in crash test when it was tested back in 2008, by concerning about the safety measures. Even though this result was the same as Kia Picanto, compared to the newer competitors including the Skoda Citigo and Volkswagen up it was a disappointing one.

Apart from the compact dimensions, the i10 model was treated as the practical city car surprisingly. This car was capable of providing the boot space as 225-liter, which was normally more than the 139-liter of Toyota Aygo, 200 liter of Kia Picanto and 185 liter of Fiat 500. Even though this model was treated as the one equal to much larger MINI clubman model, this was the only car battered in this class compared to other models including Skoda Citigo, VW up and the SEAT Mii that would probably offer 251 liter of boot space. Since the boot was available with very high loading lip and narrow design, there was a need to struggle with it in order to keep the things according to the capacity. It can also get with the maximum load area of about 889 liter in the case of folded rear seats and the useful storage compartment can be got through the style and comfort models that would probably be located under the boot floor. The rear seats can be able to offer room for two adults or three children without any difficulties. Because of the five-door options of i10, it would probably become as an easy thing to get into the back seats in order to have sufficient driving. Almost all the models come with the standard temporary spare wheel for the emergency use.
