Now, the Korean automobile manufacturer, Hyundai is all set to launch the upgraded version of Hyundai i10 2011 in the Indian market. In the face of intensifying competition, the Hyundai i10 has been due to get a mid-cycle facelift. The popular Hyundai i10 minicar will be available with new facelift including minor exterior and interior styling updates, and also some powertrain upgrades. The new 2011 Hyundai i10 also gets benefits from comprehensive set of enhancements in terms of design, specification and competitiveness, including a new 1.1-litre engine with CO2 emissions of just 99 g/km.
The country’s second largest car manufacturer, Hyundai is claiming the new i10 will have the most advanced 1.1L Kappa engine with variable valve timing in order to facilitate better mileage, lower emissions and better response. The company has announced that the new Hyundai i10 facelift will have its world premiere at the Paris Auto Show during the end of this month. As per the manufacturers, the 2011 Hyundai i10 will bring a number of upgrades including newly designed exterior and updated specifications.
External features of new Hyundai include hexagonal signature grille, a new pair of headlights and slightly redesigned front bumper. It will also get new tail-lamps, modified rear bumper and indicators on the rear-view mirrors. It will be available with an automatic option, which will make i10 the second small car in the country to do so after Maruti A-Star. Additionally, the internal features of the new i10 will also be upgraded, but details about that have not leaked out.
The 2011 i10 will become already the third new Hyundai vehicle having a fuel-saving start/stop technology after the popular i30 hatchback and hot-selling Tucson crossover (known also as Hyundai ix35 in some international markets). Hyundai sold on European soil is the only car from Hyundai which bears the ISG technology but now the Korean carmaker has announced to expand its start/stop technology in other models and markets. The 2011 i10 will come with new engine having 2 bhp more than its forerunner.
Hyundai has not set to launch any diesel engine but will continue with the less powerful 1.1L petrol engine. The ISG system should cut the fuel utilization and emissions by up to 15 percent in typical city driving conditions with heavy traffic and constant stop-start motoring, as per the automakers. It is also rumored that the facelifted Hyundai i10 will get a new 1.0L gasoline engine which will get better the car’s on-road capabilities and further lower its fuel utilization.
Current year, the European largest motor show will open its doors on September 30 and Hyundai will present a facelifted i10 there. Officially, the premiere of Hyundai i10 for the show is not announced yet but rumors suggest that the new facelift of 2011 Hyundai i10 is anticipated to debut the Veloster Coupe and i40 sedan at the next month’s Paris Auto Show.
