Hyundai i10: first details

31 October 2007

Hyundai has released details of its new i10 supermini, which will go on sale next March for less than £6500.

The i10 will be powered by a 64bhp 1.1-litre petrol engine linked to either a manual or automatic gearbox.

Unusually, the gearstick is mounted on the centre console, freeing up space between the driver and passenger seat.

The manual version averages 60mpg and produces 119g/km of carbon dioxide, putting it in VED band B, so road tax will cost £35 a year. The automatic version is in VED band C, which costs £115 a year.

Standard equipment includes front electric windows, power steering, tinted glass, body-coloured bumpers and a CD/MP3 stereo.

Safety equipment includes four airbags.

The i10 will be covered by Hyundai's standard five-year, unlimited mileage warranty.
