Hyundai has given it i10 city car a face-lift and added an all-new, low-emission version at the same time.

The updated i10 goes on sale from March 1, and includes styling and specification updates.

A new range of engines is available, with the most notable addition being the 1.0-litre engine, which takes over from the current 1.1 unit. It does an average of 67.3mpg and has emissions of 99g/km of CO2. The existing 1.25-litre unit has been improved to give 13% more power at 85bhp, with average economy up by 8.7% at 61.4mpg and emissions cut by 9.2% to 108g/km.

All-new i10 Blue
Hyundai has also introduced a new Blue version of the i10, which is powered by the 1.0-litre 'Kappa' engine. Its sub-100g/km CO2 emissions mean it will be exempt from the London Congestion Charge.

The revised range consists of four trims: Blue, Classic, Active and Style. Features such as air-con, and MP3 connectivity are now standard. Four airbags, a six-speaker stereo, electric windows and central locking are also standard on all models.

Prices start at 8195 for the entry-level Classic model.
