New Hyundai i10: Three Highlights

The list of active safety systems surprises.

Hyundai has officially unveiled the next-generation i10 city hatchback shortly before the 2019 Frankfurt International Motor Show. From September 12, the car will be demonstrated to the general public.

Compared to its predecessors, the new Hyundai i10 received three important features, in our opinion.

The first is a decent list of active safety systems. For the A class vehicles, even for Europe, it is impressive. The 2020 Hyundai i10 comes with automatic emergency braking. The front camera can detect both vehicles and pedestrians.

It also includes a driver fatigue detector, speed limit warning, Lane Keep Assist and high beam support which automatically switches.

The second is a 9-inch infotainment touchscreen. It supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In addition, there is wireless charging and a great smartphone app for the driver to remotely access some functions, like climate control settings.

The third advantage is the best-in-class cabin space. The new Hyundai i10 is lower than its predecessor, but 20 mm wider. So, it will have more room for the driver and passengers.

Now a few words about the engines. A three-cylinder 1.0-liter gasoline engine with no turbocharger produces 67 hp and 96 Nm of torque. There is a slightly more powerful 1.2-liter 83-hp (118 Nm) motor.

Both come standard with a five-speed manual transmission. A 5-speed automatic gearbox is optional. In the future, the LPG-compatible three-cylinder unit will be launched.

The new Hyundai i10 is due to go on sale in Europe in the first half of 2020.
