2014 Hyundai i10 makes official debut

Hyundai unveiled the second-generation i10 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Set to go on sale at the start of 2014, the i10 measures 80mm longer, 65mm wider and 50mm lower than its predecessor. Its wheelbase is also longer by 5mm. As a result, it offers the best cabin and luggage space in its class. It also boasts of having more maturity in its driving qualities.

It is available with the following engines: three-cylinder 1.0-litre and four-cylinder 1.25-litre petrol units. Hyundai hasn’t yet revealed its official trim levels and equipment. So far, we know that it will feature stability control and front curtain airbags as standard. Its options list includes climate control, cruise control, a speed limiter and a heated leather steering wheel.

Hyundai’s production of i10 minicars to be in Turkey instead of India

Hyundai will produce its i10 minicar in Turkey for European markets as part of its efforts to increase sales in the continent.  Hyundai will produce the i10 alongside the i20 subcompact at its joint venture with Kibar Holding of Turkey in Izmit. To accomplish that, Hyundai plans to double annual production capacity of the Izmit plant to 200,000 units by the end of 2013.

This will effectively create 750 new jobs at the plant and another 1,500 at suppliers. Hyundai hiked the capacity of the Izmit plant in May to 120,000 to start the production of the new i20. With sales of around 73,000 in 2011, the i10 is the company’s fourth best-selling model in Europe, after the i30, i20 and ix35, according to JATO Dynamics market researchers.

Around 70 percent of the vehicles that Hyundai markets in Europe are built at its Turkish plant and at its Nosovice site in the Czech Republic.
