Hyundai i10 gets new petrol engine

  • More power, same emissions
  • Style models to get leather detailing
  • Available from September
Hyundai will add a 1.2-litre petrol engine to its i10 range this September.

The 76bhp unit has 87lb ft of pulling power. That's 18% more power and 20% more pulling power than the existing 1.1-litre unit, but emissions of 119g/km of carbon dioxide and an average fuel economy of 56.5mpg are identical.

That means the manual version of the car will slot into VED band B, costing £35 a year.

Hyundai has also announced that the range-topping Style models of the i10 will also get leather interior detailing from September, and that stability control will be available for £350 on 1.2-litre models.

The new engine is available on Comfort and Style models, and costs from £7545.

1.1 Classic £6745
1.1 Comfort £7345
1.2 Comfort £7545
1.2 Comfort auto £8345
1.2 Style £7995
