First gen Hyundai i10 was launched in 2007. Instead of selling the same model with new editions over and over (partly thanks to Shah Rukh Khan), its about time the car is updated.
It may be noted, that the i10 hatchback 2014 model was first spotted back in Aug 2012. It was again spotted in January this year. All these spyshots came from Europe, and this is the first time that the 2014 i10 small car has been spotted in India.
i10 is manufactured at Hyundai’s plant in Chennai, and it comes as a no surprise that the i10 in the images here carries a license plate of Tamil Nadu state. i10 is amongst one of the most lucrative of Hyundai vehicles. It has regularly featured in the top 5 highest selling cars list in India. The popularity is expected to gain even further as Hyundai is planning to bring the new i10 in both petrol and diesel engine option. Its diesel engine will be the same as is seen on the i20 and will have 68 bhp power and 160 Nm peak torque. Where the petrol engine is concerned the i10 Brilliant will possess a 1.2 liter variable valve technology 4 cylinder Kappa engine that is seen on the present model in the market.
The new 2014 i10, might be christened Brilliant and is expected to premiere at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany. Images here are credit to Team-BHP.
