Hyundai i10 gets new petrol engine

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
