1. So what's new about the i10?
The most obvious change to the i10 is that it's been given a facelift. The Hyundai corporate grille seems force-fitted at the front while the tail-lamps are larger. Inside, there are a bunch of improvements, especially with regard to the instrument console, upholstery and the shade of the plastic panels. Plus, the top-end versions are comprehensively equipped with new features like heated external rear-view mirrors with turn indicators, reverse assist, Bluetooth/USB port/Aux-in, steering mounted controls, driver's seat height adjuster, ABS/airbags/seat-belt pretensioner, keyless entry and more. The other important change is what you don't see immediately - the two engines, the 1.1 and the 1.2 Kappa, have received a raft of improvements.
2. Why has Hyundai introduced it?
Well, the i10 has been doing quite well for Hyundai. But the car has been around since end-2007. So it was time for a mid-life revamp.
