Hyundai to start selling updated i10 city car range, Blue model on March 1

Article by Christian A., on February 5, 2011

Going on sale starting March 1 are the updated versions of Hyundai’s i10 city car range. On this date, Hyundai’s first sub-100g/km Blue model will also arrive. Hyundai upgraded the specifications and designs of the rest in the lineup. The new and improved version of Hyundai’s entry-point model is regarded to be a major step forward over the current i10.

Modifications were made on the i10’s design, both in the cabin and on the car’s exterior. These changes are in line with the brand’s bold and progressing design language, showing an obvious resemblance between the new i10 and other recently launched Hyundais, including the sleek ix35 and ix20 models.

The lineup is powered by a new and improved range of Euro V compliant engines that offer clean performance, outstanding fuel economy and very low emissions. The all-new 1.0-litre ‘Kappa’ engine is featured on the latest i10, replacing the old 1.1-litre ‘Epsilon’ unit. This innovative three-cylinder engine returns an awesome 67.3mpg combined.

Hyundai also improved the 1.25-litre ‘Kappa’ engine, which now has 13% more power (85bhp), 9.2% less CO2 (108g/km) and 8.7% better fuel consumption (61.4mpg) compared to the outgoing 1.25-litre ‘Kappa’ engine.

To make the most of the efficient new 1.0-litre engine, Hyundai presented an all-new model - the i10 Blue. This special ‘eco’ edition of the i10 has a CO2 emissions level of 99g/km, which means that the vehicle is exempted from VED and the London Congestion Charge.
